Toyotas QDR quality drivability reliability. is reason why I bought this car In quality although the interior is bit out of date but the quality of the Diesel engine is what makes the car worth it I am getting a average of 24kmpl with 100 percent ac on in highway driving I use my Liva for highway driving only and it is upto the mark Now about drivability the steering is very smooth and Liva doesnot require a lot of gear changes Features like ABS WITH EBD plays a vital role while driving on highways Some people write that the clutch is very hard to press and it causes foot ache but I dont think so I enjoy a lot while driving my Liva I usually drive at a speed of 90 to 100 kmph and not more than that And as soon as I reach 70 kmph the engine sound also reduces to a great extend although its not noisy but at low speed engine sound is more as compared to sound at good speed and Liva can also be used for long drives with 4 people in it with luggage I have done a max travel of 5000km in 8 days It was one hell of an experience and I finally realised after the drive that Liva was not at All a bad choice Now at last the reliability we all know about the Toyota servicing standard and also its low maintenance cost Liva sits on top in terms of maintenance cost I have had 4 servicing done with 3 of them as free servicing Well the most assuring thing about Toyota is the parts they use last a lifetime I was charged rs 0 during my 1000km service rs 2000 for the engine oil and filter during the 10000 and 20000km service with free labour charge and got a bill of Rs 3300 for my 30000km servicing for parts and the labour both which is the lowest one can find in a diesel car in India Till now my experience with Liva was so breathtaking and I hope in future also it will be the same Keep it up Toyota u are the best
