Toyota Verso Issues

Hi — I was interested to other members complaints the lack of reliability of the Toyota Gearbox:

Here is a copy of the I sent to the Managing Director Jon recently and his sorry response.

In if you buy a Verso without a 100,000 warranty you would be advised to put aside for a new gearbox.

Mr Jon Williams,

I am writing this to you because I feel that by getting the highest authority’s in Toyota UK am I likely to achieve a outcome from the engineering failing that I am about to to you.

In 2007, I visited a Toyota in Bristol with a close who was looking for a new car. Whilst in the I was so impressed with the versatility of the that I decided it would be the next car for my family as my wife and I planning to have a second In 2009 I found a Toyota Verso in excellent condition an 05 plate and with only miles. So I purchased the Verso and the period of 12 months was extremely with its versatility, reliability and economy. Unfortunately, recently a has occurred with the vehicle, I have discovered is rather documented both in the Toyota Club website and within the RAC forum. Before I describe the events to you, I would to explain that I am a UK Chartered Engineering Officer, and I am used to complicated and extreme fault and diagnosing them. I also after the cars that I own and I looked after my family car well.

I have now owned the Verso for 3 years and the car now has now acquired 70,000 In the last couple of months I to note a slight knocking coming from under the of the car. I put this down to the that I might have a that was starting to fail and to leave it until I could further symptoms. A few weeks the knocking started to get worse and I that it was appearing throughout all the but not when the car was placed into and I started to get concerned about the Last week I placed the car my local village garage to the knocking noise explaining I thought it was either a gear pump or the gearbox itself. The quickly identified that the was indeed the source of the issue and after he had informed me of this I discovered a rather well fault with the Toyota gearbox output bearing has been documented on the 2 websites I already described to you.

I hope you appreciate that I owned many cars more mileage on them my current Toyota and I have had a gearbox fail on me before. In like many motorists, I the gearbox to outlive many critical components on the vehicle. I your latest sales and literature which states

Verso carries Toyota’s warranty, but many components are to last more than that time. All engines use as maintenance-free components as possible, and the tyres have been to give the best balance of and durability. ) from the RAC forum. I fully expect to the output bearing to be at fault on my and the RAC forum will soon a new post on this issue me with your response, I am hoping will be to my entire as a potential loyal Toyota
