How would you rate the 2008 Toyota Avensis?

Has the 2008 Avensis 2.0 D-4D diesel a timing chain or timing belt and how would you rate its reliability overall? As reliable as the Toyota Corolla?

Hi Cathal,

That model has a timing belt, and it has to be changed every 100,000km or seven years. It’s a hugely reliable car though, easily the equal of its little brother, the Corolla.
