Cars are a compromise, the more you pay the more you expect.(your comment about how much more the Toyota is).
Still your input will be missed.
Happy motoring.

I sold the Volvo for 295!

The current owner is truly enjoying the cost benefits of bangernomics then. Shows if you look around you can buy a viable car for very little money.

Stick around to give feedback on the new car. Before I bought my current car I test drove a Yaris Hybrid and was pretty impressed. The ability to glide away in EV mode from a standing start obviates the need for a clunky stop/start system and the CVT is good as well. Didn't go for the Yaris in the end because the Jazz trumps it for the flexibility of it's space and we need this from time to time.

But, at risk of raising an old chestnut, I thought, and still think, the Mk2 Jazz was a more coherent offering to the Mk3 and the interior was much more practical especially in the dashboard area.

Good choice, Corolla is made in UK ( Burnaston ) - when I worked for first tier parts manufacturer Toyota was our largest customer for chassis and body panels,  and the engineers at Burnaston were a thoroughly nice professional bunch. Toyota had very high standards and the Corolla has been their biggest selling model ever ( it got changed to Auris for Europe ).

At least you have not been lured to German brand by their slick advertising and legacy build quality and reliability ( I say legacy because, as my brothers found out their cars are no longer well built or reliable, they are back with Japanese cars now).

Enjoy your Corolla, my niece had one for years and never any problem, but was badly advised by her dad to get a Skoda Fabia, she has had nothing but grief with the Fabia and is now looking for another Corolla....

Looks like the new owner's as fastidious as you were Jocko, always nice to see an old car still going strong.

I sold a vectra 3 years ago which I saw occasionally for the next 18 months, covered in stickers and with front & rear screen plastered with pink stuffed toys, speeding and smoking (car & occupants). I never really wanted it back, mot check showed it expired with about 10 items failing the mot & about 20 advisories, it had done about 60K in those 18 months, can't imagine why they bothered to try to mot it, I think they did alright for a 380 banger! Still sad to see it abused after I'd (sort of) looked after it for 10 years.
