Default Is a Glanza turbo reliable?

I am currently 17 and have a Saxo 1.1 and was looking around for a car to get next year when i have a bit more money saved up. I was wondering how reliable they are as daily drivers assuming it was a good example with around 60-80K and well maintained and what they are like on fuel

"In reading reviews: "Glanza v turbo ep91, great car on straight lines but wont go around corners, anyone with ideas on how to improve the handling?" and another "The Toyota Starlet GTTurbo - Not a pretty looking car but considering the small engine size and cheap running costs it performs very well."

The handling is far from the best but the cheeky attitude makes it fun to drive.

There are easy power gains to be had with a few simple modifications if thats your thing and the suspension can be vastly improved but is in my opinion very expensive for a decent setup.

The only problems I have ever had with my GT Turbo have been due to my bad wiring which disconnected the power to the ecu.""I got a mint starlet glanza fresh import - is a stunning car ,standard, just what I wanted so I could work on it, N reg 52000miles, and cost me 2995, its in imaculate condition. it's stupidly rapid!"

Strange, the boy racers around My way seem to get them around corners quick enough. Must be a skill issue.

Hi so time to get a grip here lad. anything which makes a car go faster will always cost money. if you can find an insurance company prepared to take on the risk of a young driver with a car which has extra performance. a turbo will without doubt add performance so premiums are high if not impossible.

as too many deaths and bad accidents are the usual outcome of young drivers that is why insurance premiums have got so high.

so the standard car is now expensive to insure .

any modifications as from 1st jan 2014 here in the united kingdom are now all illegal so it will get the car crushed if fitted.
