  1. Hi all, I've finally got around to my questions, are you sitting comfortably? I'm driving an old Honda Stepwagon at the moment but it will fall foul of the upcoming ULEZ restrictions on London next year so need to upgrade. I'm not keen on the newer stepwagons, partly because the seats don't fold flat to make a bed anymore, (important). So I've been looking at imported Voxy/Noah and Nissan Serenas. My first question is what are peoples opinions on my choices (obviously I'm expecting a bias towards Toyotas). I saw somewhere that 10-15 year old Toyotas were being recalled because of a break problem, is this right? It makes me nervous. My other question is does anyone have experience with importing a van themselves? I'm not exactly loaded and the thought of getting a 6 grand car for 3 grand is very appealing but is it worth the hassle? That's enough for now. Any help and advice will be very much appreciated.
  2. This is great, thanks so much for your input, I feel much better equipped for getting out there and searching now.
  3. That's very interesting. Do you happen to know what the model number of engine it is? Cheers.
  4. Thanks for the replies, I'm still no clearer on the emissions thing but maybe the importer would know. All looking very promising.
  5. Hello there, I'm considering buying an imported Voxy or Noah, (is there a difference between them?) and have a couple of questions. A bit of background first; I currently drive a Honda Stepwagon but need to get rid of it because of the impending ULEZ zone in London. Newer Stewagons that comply are either really ugly or the rear seats don't fold down to make a bed which I want. I was considering a Nissan Serena which fits the bill but then read about lots of mechanical issues with them. Luckily by chance I then found the Toyota equivalents which appear perfect. So my questions are... Which model/year engine will comply with the ULEZ (Euro 4)? And are there issues with the build of these cars? I know there are always problems with certain spare parts but is the engine/majority of parts used in UK Toyotas? And lastly can anyone conform that the back seats fold flat(ish) into a bed. Many thanks for your time.
  6. Hi all, I'm not actually a Toyota owner yet but am planning on it soon. I'll ask my numerous questions a bit later. Cheers
