    I've sold my 2009 Gen 3 (AV59 KLS) and bought a 2016 Gen4. The old car had 165k miles and was starting to show signs of its age (suspension a bit bouncy, EGR needs a good clean etc.) and had full dealer servicing had had the hybrid checks (which expire at 10 years). Car has been round Great Britain, never got to drive it in Europe as I had hoped.

    If anyone in the UK buys it (from BCA car auctions) drop me a PM for more service receipts!

    Thanks to all on the gen 3 forums, been a great 9 years, happy days.

    Regards,
    John

    Congrats -- maybe in a few weeks, post a reply and let us know the major takeaways that you've noticed from the change from Gen 3 to Gen 4 -- especially anything that surprised you or that you weren't expecting (good or bad). I'm also interested in how the reduced cargo space feels in real life.
