Toyota reliability proves mane attraction for charity

A NATIONAL equestrian charity has ordered a new fleet of Toyotas following a decision to switch its fleet from petrol to diesel.

The International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH) opted for Toyota citing strong reliability as a key factor.

Alan Bunn, administration manager at the ILPH, said: ‘The drivers were attracted by the comfort of the vehicles and the level of equipment for the price.

‘We are always looking at driving running costs as low as we can, so one of the most important factors was reliability. Another key factor was to move from petrol to diesel and Toyota was able to provide what we needed in two and four-wheel drive.’

The league, which operates a 25-strong fleet, has already taken delivery of eight Avensis T3S diesel estates, two Hilux 250 GXs and an EX Double Cab. Three more Hilux GXs have also been ordered.
