Toyota IQ2 *price reduced*

A bit of a sad story, this. My Stepdad died recently and so my Mum now has a surplus of cars. He was a proper petrolhead – a mechanic all his life, a huge Toyota fan, and he used to run the UK Toyota owners club. My Mum is keeping his MR2 Roadster and selling her IQ.

Thought I’d post it here in case anyone is in the market for a really fantastic small runabout. It’s in Hull, but can be driven up here to Glasgow/Edinburgh if anyone wants to buy it.

This model seems to currently go for around £4,000 to £4,500 – but there aren’t any on the market with such low milage to compare to, really.

I’m no expert on these, but I do know that it’s probably the best condition second-hand IQ you’re ever likely to see. My Mum is the only owner, from new. It’s been looked after and detailed thoroughly for its whole life. Full service history, full MOT history. 2009 model IQ 2 3D. One litre motor. Less than 17,000 miles on the clock. The last thing my Stepdad did to it was replace the front brakes and discs before this year’s MOT.

It has one tiny crease in the front bumper, and is otherwise pretty much as-new. I can vouch for it being a lovely wee thing to drive (I had a go last week). Basically, it’s a hundred times better than a Smart Car in every measurable way. Perfect shopping runabout, or car for a new driver. Could sell with or without the ‘666’ private plate.

Anyone interested? I’d rather see it go to somebody who’ll use it than have my Mum sell it to her local Toyota dealer.

Car looks good and I'm sure it's going to be a great buy for someone.

Sorry to hear about your stepdad Tony. :(

No bites on this yet, so my Mum’s planning to give it away to one of those ‘we buy anything’ style companies.

They’re only offering her £3k, so if anyone wants to offer £3,500 I’d personally drive it up here and deliver. Pretty sure you could make a quick profit on turning that around by advertising it properly on AT/eBay/etc.

Wish I had the capital to do that, but sadly not going to happen for me. :(

Hope she gets it sold though.
