The Review

I've driven my 18 month old Axio for 12 months now. It was bought 2nd hand last year. Mileage around 25,000 km. It looks sporty & stylish & with one look you can be picked out from the crowd (also b'cos it's pure white). This is my 1st car with CVT & I was very surprised that I had reached 100kmh without knowing it. So be careful in the 1st few weeks if you don't want to be fined for speeding. This is my 2nd Toyota & the reliability & handling is as good as always. The biggest difference is that I get 18km/l for highway & 14km/l for city driving. My previous Corolla only gave 14 & 11km/l. It's a great drive. Whether it's a night out with friends or to Malaysia for a holiday. Good acceleration for overtaking when you need it too. What I like 1. Good all round performance. 2. Reliable yet Fun to drive. 3. Still looking good after coming 2 years on the roads. What I do not like 1. No boot light. I got one of those Osram touch lights for around $12 & the problem is solved. No wiring needed. 2. 14" rims are too small. However they'll be upgraded to 15 or 16" when I get my bonus.
