Its basically a Prius in a less "i'm an eco-warrior" guise - and i'm thinking of getting one.

Anyone any experience of them?

Got a test drive booked for 11.30 on saturday morning and just trying to find out a bit more about them before I go along.

So far I recon I need the Tspirit model with nav + privacy pack.

Other option is the Lexus one, which is basically the same car with a 2k premium.

Cheers.

Not that particular model but I ran a SR180 for 9 months and 15k in 2009. Build quality was overall irritating, lots of squeeks and creeks inside and a dash that marked if you got within 6 inches of it. The rear brakes squeeked from day 1 despite going back into the garage several times but most disappointing was the economy. Now I know you have to take figures with a pinch of salt but it was meant to get 45.8mpg iirc, on a motorway run you'd be doing well if you got 40mpg so don't believe everything Toyota say.

I was on http://www.toyotaownersclub.co.uk/forums/ which as an Auris specific sub-forum.
