Space, economy, style, versatility...
the head issue potentially, you need to be handy with a spanner or know someone who is in order to prevent being conned by garages
Overall the Toyota Estima I owned for two years was fantastic, nothing I did to it ever made it flinch or cause me any problems right up to the end when the head went. I had quotes for the work as low as £1000 and with that work done I know that the car would have been good for many more years however at the time I needed a vehicle instantly so had to trade it in.
As proof of how well respected these vehicles are, I even managed to get a good price for it then from a dealer who knew his stuff about the vehicles.
I am in the market for another one now and would not hesitate to suggest you get one just be careful of unscrupulous garages that will tut and complain that the vehicles are a pig to work on and parts are impossible to find. Try joining a community that can help you and suggest things before you take it to a garage...
