Toyota Corolla Verso T3 2.0 D-4D - 4,596 miles



MY relationship with our long-term Toyota Corolla Verso is starting to become a little strained.

After a blissful honeymoon period, I have started to develop a few 'issues'. As always, it is the little things that annoy me. Firstly, it has developed a rather irritating squeak. Something is working its way loose on the driver's side of the dashboard and over a long journey, this incessant rattling is starting to drive me up the wall.

Another quibble is the noise of the engine at speed. Like all diesel engines, the D-4D is noisy when started up from cold. But as the needle gets closer to 70 mph, I find myself turning up the radio to drown out the engine. But deep down, I am still committed. How can I resist such flexibility, such comfortable seats and such a powerful engine that always delivers and returns 47 mpg?

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
