I bought the car with 25 miles on it, I now have 400. Recently I noticed that the engine is starting to get noisy. It was silent in the beginning. When I decelerate I can feel the down shifting. Accelerating is not a problem. I've just used one tank of gas so far, so I'm still seeing what the MPG are like. I like the design, but I cannot see the front so I'm still figuring out how far I have before I hit something.
I like the backlit displays, the controls are nice and ergonomic. The pick up is great, and it's fun to drive.
Cup holders in the back seat, that was a big pet peeve. The seats are a little uncomfortable, but I lean towards the right when I drive so I don't feel it as much. Lights on the visor mirrors would be great. Better speakers, my mom's '00 CE Corolla sounds better.
