I've owned this car for two years and it was great at first. Now The passenger side window won't roll up the back window won't roll down, but it falls down. My headlights have started flashing on and off so I can't drive at night. My windshield wipers work intermittently. And my Traction, Anti-Lock, and Brake light all have come on at the same time. My warranty has run out. I took the car to an auto electric shop and he said I would need all four window regulators which are over 300.00 dollars a piece. That's just the beginning. Anybody want to buy a car?
I enjoyed the gas mileage and the look of this vehicle
I bought it new and got a 7/100K warranty that pd for itself. Great mileage and fun to drive. Typical American maintenance. That is why they lose their value quickly. But I knew this going into the deal. No serious problems with car. I think a fifth gear would be nice and a little more grumble from the exhaust. An aftermarket battery should be made available. As of now, you go to the dealership. It is either all or nothing with the stereo system too. Modular aftermarket components would be a nice option for upgrades. The leather is not up to Toyota standards and they do get hot in the summer. More front passenger leg room. The dash lights up like a cockpit (really like that!).
Heads Up Display, Supercharger, 10 disk CD changer, Steering wheel stereo control, heated front seats.
A little more pwr, modular stereo components, upgrade seat leather, optional ride comfort, hide wipers when not in use (are car manufacturers in cahoots with ANCO?). Auto-sensing wipers. Dual exhaust with the GRRRRRR!
I bought this car with 42,000 miles on it. It now has 120,000 miles on it. It has been a great performer, gets great gas mileage (30 mpg highway) and is still very solid and rattle free. The stereo has killer sound. Everything works on it like it was designed to do. Am thinking of buying another one, but this time the GXP.
No service issues until 40K. Now @ 50K: Transmission, Wheel barings, CV Joints, Tie Rods, Steering rack, Window motor, Dash gauges & lights, Radio, Heated seats, Converter & Exhaust, Rotors, Calipers, Strut mounts, struts, 02 sensors, A/C, mass air flow sensor, injectors and some other engine parts. Now the supercharger is dying, and there is a strong vibration during acceleration that no dealerships can seem to figure out. Also, the car is rusting in spots.
Head-up display, memory seats, Big bold styling, lots of features.
Better overall quality. Fold down rear seats. Make replacement parts easier and cheaper to obtain and replace. Thank God I have my own dealership or I would go broke fixing this thing.
