Pioneers of Importing People Carrier and 4x4 Vehicles from Japan
We started our search for an Estima a few months ago and were quite surprised at how few places are trading & there was one trader near to us in the Watford. We visited him & this guy at a cricket club where he kept all the vehicles he had imported cars over selling from car park. And then we visited Essex Toho Motors I must say, as lovely as there were, it was clear that from the 1st phone call to Toho Motors you knew that you could actually still buy a good Estima from a decent company. And that particular day we were scheduled to visit 3 dealerships within 10 miles of each other in Essex. Toho were the 2nd and after visiting them we didn't bother with the 3rd. Like I said from the 1st phone call, and seeing their vehicles on their site, i had a good feeling in my gut that they’re be the ones we will be buying from! And indeed they were - they didn't try and sell us anything, they didn't jump in when my husband and I were thinking out loud and they DID greet our 2 young kids very well - which really helped on an extremely hot summers day. They were extremely knowledgeable about their vehicles, happy to show us any documentation we requested, had already transformed any elements of the vehicle that were in Japanese to English and you could tell took great pride in their cars. They also wore uniforms - even in the heat - which is the sign of good standards. It's been over a month since we brought the car from them and touch wood so far so good. Very happy to recommend them for the initial purchase and I hope we'll be doing the same should we befall any issues/the service. Thank you Toho. Mrs A & the A Team.

***** 5Star Toho motors is specialist supplier of niche market vehicle. Being in the market for just that type of vehicle I took the trouble to travel 120 miles to have a look and duly purchased a nice Honda. I found the proprietor, Mr.Tariq, a most pleasant gentleman and the purchase experience was smooth and uncomplicated. As it happen, on my way home i had to pop in to a local business and a chap came out and said, "Tthat's nice car. I've never seen on quite like that. Where can i find one?" I then spent 20mins showing him around the car and told him to look up Toho Motors online. So, Tariq, if you get another chap from my part of the world calling by i hope you will remember that when i come round to trade up in a couple of years time. For anyone seeking a nice people carrier i would suggest that it is worth going out of your way to pay Tariq a visit.

Hi all at Toho, Just a note to say thanks for all your efforts on my behalf, the Estima X(4WD) is running well and serving the uses I had in mind for it, ie, taking all my and others heavy and space eating SCUBA diving gear with ease and the high quality finishes, its now a 5 seater with a very large boot, but with 8 bolts back to an 8 seater - excellent flexibility. Thanks once again. Best wishes for these troubled times. Denis willoughby***25/05/2011 15:24:28 ***
Hiya "Mr Toho" than you for sourcing my Toyota Noah for me, I would like to say that the car was presented in tip top condition and the time you took to explain everything to me and show me how the many features worked, was excellent. I look forward to many happy miles of motoring, safe in the knowledge that should I have any issues I can just give you a call. Thanks again TG .......30/10/2010
I was incredibly happy with the service and friendly, honest people. My car is perfect!....12/09/2010
Hi, Feedback Name:Mr Keane Email:thomas.t.keane@***.com Phone:0781 866 4464 Feedback:We recently bought a Nissan Elgrand from Toho Motors, we are extremely pleased withour purchase. The car was just what we were looking for, after weeks of frustration looking at the usual disappointingly small 7 seaters to accomodate our family of 6. It is in immaculate condition and whenever we go out, people come up to us and admire the car and ask us where we bought it. Thanks Mr Keane .......23/08/2010 thomas.t.keane@***.com
Hi, Feedback Name:waseem hanif Email:Waseem Hanif [ email@example.com] Phone: Feedback:Dear Toho Motors, Just like to say a special thank you with the purchase of my Toyota from you over the weekend. The car is exceptional and more importantly, the family are very happy with it. The condition of all your vehicles are immaculate and are prepared to a very high standard. Your customer service is great, very friendly and I like the fact that there were no pushy sales tactics which made the initial visit all the more comfortable. Equally important is your after-sales service, the flexibility and the valuable advice given to me. I would recommend you to anyone and look forward to coming back to you in the future. Thanks again Waseem.......... 15/06/2010

As we were looking around to buy MPV, we went to a few dealers, the last dealer we went to was Toho Motors, as we went to the showroom, we liked two vehicles, they were very clean and tidy and one of the staff members came along and explained about the features about the vehicle. Then he took us on the test drive, we loved this vehicle so much, we decided to purchase this. Toho Motors provides us with this vehicle, full service includes the cambelt, new MOT and full valet. We are so happy with the service we got from Toho Motors, we shall recommend them to our friends......Thanks ... Joe

16th August 1998 Toho Motors Letter of Appreciation Dear Sir, On Monday 3rd of August 1998, at 5pm, I pulled onto your forecourt with a vague interest in Toyota Space Cruisers. One of your staff quickly explained about its liability, flexibility, high standard of equipment, and your free servicing and warranty policy. I went for a test drive, and was pleasantly surprised at how easy and comfortable the vehicle was to drive. You gave me a fair price straight away for the car I had arrived in. I explained that if I was to buy the Toyota, I was in a rush, as I was going on holiday within days. You recommended contacts to have the towbar fitted, and the first insurance company you recommended was £100 cheaper than my usual company. You had the Toyota fully serviced, including, 5 new tyres, and ready for my collection the next day. When I arrived, the large bouquet of flowers left inside for my wife was a very nice gesture. We have just returned from towing a large caravan with a Toyota. The vehicle handled this superbly, the air conditioning was great, and my children preferred to sleep in the Toyota than the caravan. I have recommended your company to several people who have asked questions. I know that my work colleague, Mr. Martin. Arnold, has since bought a similar vehicle from you, and he too is delighted. Thank you again on behalf of all my family for your superb service. Mr. Andrew. McManus
