Have had the car for roughly 7500 miles and so far- so good. Only minor issues such as a small rattle in the rear hatch- apparently there was a TSB (I believe a Toyota service bulletin) to fix it. The car is the special edition- so it comes with a Kenstyle body kit- upgraded interior, and a better sound system than the stock version. Real glad I chose to do that. Not sure if it is just mine but my car seems to have a whistle when on the highway anything over 60 mph which I'm not to crazy about. Guess I'll just turn up the speakers.
Big fan of the glass roof, styling, speakers, rear seat comfort, plenty of room when you lay the seats down to haul anything.
Heated side mirrors, better tires from factory, maybe a little better gas mileage (doesn't really compare to the civic and I thought it would be very similar to the corolla but falls behind that as well)
