The car feels much more expensive than
its price would indicate. It has
decent acceleration with the automatic
transmission, great brakes, and a fine
level of fit and finish. The steering
is nimble and precise, with good
smooth ride quality. During sharp
turns, you'll notice how skinny and
unsupportive the front seats are. The
brake and gas pedals are very close
together, and if you have big feet or
drive wearing boots it's easy to hit
both pedals at once. This is my first
new car. Previously owned newer
Toyota Tercels. This car spanks the
Tercel like a homeless dog.
Heated outside mirrors, mp3 player,
fold-down rear seats, big trunk, power
windows, remote alarm and door locks.
Make the front seats wider with more
side support. Put the door locking
switch down by the window controls,
instead of high on the door, near the
shoulder. Offer cruise control as an
option. Cheap plastic gas cap could
be better quality. Put gasoline door
on driver's side.
