"Although bland the Picnic grows on you"

Brought the 2.2 diesel from a toyota dealer, owned the car for nearly four years. Mileage now about 75.000.

We have three children, oldest are teenagers. the latter like the rearmost seats although the middle ones are the most comfortable with a particularly large side window and a foldable arm rest.

No problems to speak of, it isn't that comfortable to drive over long distances not withstanding the adjustable seat although it might help if we had the model/extra adjustable steering wheel.

Going on holiday you need a roof rack which clips onto the roof rails, for every day it is fine and it is surprising how much domestic stuff one can get in the car by moving the seats, folding them or removing the back two.

It is an economical way of moving people about, the bigger MPV's are more expensive to run and this one fits in our garage. The interior is slightly scuffed but then it gets a good battering and it would probably clean up with the right type of valleting.
