I’ve read many reviews/comparisons in the months prior to the purchase of my T5. There doesn’t seem to be a lack of those who are keen to provide their opinion but advice is cheap. My review is based after parting with the $ to take car home.
Before my purchase I tested the Lexus IS, VW Golf, BMW, Lexus IS and the MB250.
I now own a T5 and my advice is that you purchase any other of the other cars above.
I want to be the only owner of this fantastic car.
I encourage criticism of the T5 – spread the word.
