  1. I have seen quite a lot of comments on the web saying avoid the 2.4.. ALWAYS go for the 3.0 ? Is this good advice ? I have seen the following K reg 2.4 Surf, 148k miles, Auto, 12 months mot, cambelt in Nov 2011, excellent condition.. £1400 Advice ?
  2. Thanks for the info. We drove a 1.8 today and really liked it. quite happy with the power compare to a diesel. We have got a T3-X in mind but often see adverts for te 'colour collection' where does this fit in the range ? any good sites/garages other than autotrader where I might find a good one for under £5k ?
  3. Another quick comment.. why is the petrol seen as cheaper.. I calculated based on MPG , fuel cost and car tax and the diesel seems cheaper.. am I missing something ? Engine size:1.8 Litre Petrol Fuel consumption (urban):30.1 mpg Fuel consumption (combined):39.2 mpg Cost Fuel: £1.38 Fuel 8000 Miles ( Local ): £1389 Fuel 8000 Miles ( Combined ): £1067 Car Tax 12 Months: £210 ---------------------------------------- Cost Per Year (AVG): £1438 1.8 Petrol ---------------------------------------- Engine size:2.0 Litre Diesel Fuel consumption (urban):37.7 mpg Fuel consumption (combined):48.7 mpg Cost Fuel: £1.45 Fuel 8000 Miles ( Local ): £1166 Fuel 8000 Miles ( Combined ): £902 Car Tax 12 Months: £165 ---------------------------------------- Cost Per Year (AVG): £1199 2.0 Diesel ----------------------------------------
  4. Thanks for the answers so far.. a couple of quick questions.. ...Are the diesels that bad! I spoke to my local garage and he has had diesel avensis in for years and never had a head gasket problem ...Petrol maybe an option but we are looking for good mpg , the 2.0 with 26mpg around town sounds a nice engine but not very economical ...The 2.0 D engine was quite nippy, will we notice a big difference with the 1.8 ? Thanks
  5. We are looking for a used Avensis estate for under £5k and we are getting really confused about models/specs etc..
