It's Just A Pricey Toyota

Very disappointing vehicle. I was looking for an upscale car that would offer low cost of ownership. This car has been very expensive to maintain and has required some costly repairs, including brakes and rotors. Very poor lighting in the cabin at night. Even the kids complain about the lack of lights. Switches are not backlit so finding the right switch is difficult. The temperature controls are absolutely horrible. Has independent temp control for passenger and driver but there is no correlation between what you set and what it delivers. It's as though the sensor is on the outside and not in the cabin. The voice recognition for the phone is mediocre at best. Paint chipping on hood.
Bluetooth interface works flawlessly and keyless ignition is very nice. Seats are very comfortable.
Better temp controls. Better interior lighting and backlight switches. Change feature that opens all windows when you hold the unlock button. Can activate unintentionally. A better idea is to have the windows go up so when a storm comes, you don't have to go out to roll up the windows.
