Toyota ist 2008 car review

A car that’s just like a new one perfection-ist approach.

When came from Toyota they had an ist for us to drive we thought had made a m-ist-ake. But when we a bit further, we found that a thing really did ex-ist. OK, so now that had our mandatory poke at the silly perhaps some explanation is

Many cars are marketed in speaking countries with that we might find ridiculous, and some themselves with name if they are destined to be sold in such as ours. The ist is sold markets outside of Japan with names we would find more acceptable and probably fair to assume had it been intended to be new in our market, it perhaps would had a name we could relate to better.

But the car we were offered is a Japanese market model, imported as a car into New Zealand via official channels to be sold through Signature Class used car

This programme has been for many years now, earned a reputation as perhaps the used car programme offered in New Zealand. These used are imported by Toyota themselves, and run of the mill Jap Imports, Toyota them to their massive in Thames to be comprehensively refurbished finding their way onto the yard.

Not only are the cars checked over and made as as new, but they’re also with benefits that are as good as new too.

Offered with a 3 year kilometre warranty, 3 year AA 3 years of WOF checks and certified among other benefits, a Signature Class car really is the best thing to a brand new

While there are costs with preparing used to this standard, Toyota Class buyers we have to all speak highly of their and the after-sales back-up that’s extended to them, so we accept the peace of mind motoring is worth paying a little for.

The one we drove was a 3 year old car with low kilometres for its age. Our 2008 ist had around 12,000 kilometres and was offered for sale at $27,000 On Road Costs.

We were to learn that the ist is based on the platform, as it’s more of a sized car. Unlike ists which had the Yaris 1.3 or 1.5 engine, our ’08 ist was powered by the same 1.8 powerplant that the Corolla driving the front wheels a 4 speed automatic transmission.

Toyota ist

level included 16 inch wheels, smart key entry and system, automatic air conditioning, fog and a rear spoiler, while ist has ABS and six airbags, but there’s no Electronic Control, something you’d to see in a $27k new car. Bluetooth is absent, again, a feature expect to see at this price if we were buying new.

Fit and finish is of a high standard, we’ve come to expect Toyota, and the dash and overall styling is rather more and interesting than that offered up by Toyota. Likewise, styling also offers a quirky look, while unmistakably a Toyota.

The seating is fairly high and seats are and supportive enough. While not with power, performance is and it’s a pleasant car to drive.

Overall, the ist is an alternative to the Corolla for wanting something a little styling-wise, but the reality is that a very similar car in most

While the Toyota Signature benefits are not to be sneezed at, we’re left wondering if a 3 year old used car lacking Electronic Control is worth $27,000 ORC when a brand new Corolla GX with the afore-mentioned safety can be had for $35,990.

But then, Corollas are to be everywhere, so here’s something a different from Toyota for the
