My only problem was early on when the vsa went crazy, and it took dealership a month to figure out what to do with the computer. Other than, this car has been perfect. Great handling and very peppy. I don't use premium gas, only plus, and that works fine. Have gotten as much as 33 mpg on the long hwy drives; average about 23-24, which is terrific. Sound system is great and finish is lovely. The CD player can make you a little crazy until it unloads and loads; that's the only flaw. Got new Michelins (and it costs a fortune with the S model) at 43,000 miles, and standard recommended maintenance; so far, nothing extra. Highly recommend it; in fact my husband bought a 2005 TL.
