Toyota Corolla Hatchback 2.0 D-4D Colour Collection 5d (2006/06) - Owner Review

Its a Toyota, everthing is practical. I also like the way Toyota have etched all the windows with a unique number to help identification if it got stolen, something ive never had before.

Definitely. Why? the build quality, the reliability, and the sheer professionalism of the dealership. What a contrast to some main dealers.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another Toyota, dont know which one though.

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yeah, ignition was a little sticky at times, but the main dealer changed the barrel without question at a time that suited me.

What's most practical about your car?
Its a Toyota, everthing is practical. I also like the way Toyota have etched all the windows with a unique number to help identification if it got stolen, something ive never had before.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The footrest by the clutch, what a godsend on a long journey, its the little things that help you know, and the climate control, it seems to do its job so well no one interferes with the heating anymore.
