Purchased this vehicle in March 07 with 26000 miles on it. Got a great deal! At first was a little skeptical about spacing, moving down from a Toyota Matrix, but now we love it. My wife and I carry stuff all the time and that does not hinder its performance. Gas mileage is not as rated, but great anyway. Toyota hit it right on the money when they designed this line. This car is awesome in every way. Roomy interior, comfortable seats, best stock sound system I have heard in a vehicle. This car can handle anything and I have the most fun driving it of any other vehicle.
Audio system, great gas mileage, doesn't falter any with 2 people and being fully loaded, build quality of vehicle, fold down seats, center gauges, rear wiper, turn signals on side and in mirrors, can't put it all here.
More storage space, maybe a standard or upgradeable center console. Getting a little closer to window sticker ratings.
