    Which Mobility Car

    Hi, I’m trying to insert an image into a post but I keep getting a critical error message in the box where I am trying to link to the file. Does anyone know what the problem is please?

    It could be over the size limit. If you email it to me I can adjust the size for you and send it back to you.

    Having had my Toyota Corolla Touring Sport GR 2.0 for a couple of months. I can now say what the likes and dislikes are.

    The car is nice to drive.  Handles well and is showing around 50 mpg on average.  No motorway driving included in that.  I do however think it lacks a number of things a car in the £32,000 plus class should have.   Electric  seats and powered tailgate for two of the main ones.

    I find the “hold ” button erratic.  Sometimes it holds the car. Other times it doesnt.  My main gripe is the poor illumination of the controls and display.  The centre screen buttons are impossible to read.  The main dash display is very dim in daylight. Despite being set at its highest setting.    The navigation screen is not worth looking at.  Its so basic. Compared to say a TomTom it doesn’t cut it.  The audio directions are OK.  I will probably stick my old Tom Tom on to the screen when I need navigation.

    Pity really as other than those gripes, it is a very nice and comfortable car to drive.  I admit I was greatly influenced by the hybrid set up, and the fact it was built n the UK.   I think the only way to choose a Motability vehicle is to hire the same model for a few days before committing yourself.  Just sitting in a car in the showroom and or a run round the block.  Isnt really enough to make a positive judgement.
