Whether people call my car a fridge or a toaster, it is anything but a small appliance. It is the first car I have bought and I couldn't have picked better. Very roomy to fit my friends for long drives, or to haul around my art things. The dealership also installed black and white contrast leather interior, so I feel like I am driving a much fancier car. Also, with the toyota name behind it, I feel safe. Someone hit me recently and for the impact I felt, there was very little damage. Great gas mileage, too, so affordable at purchase time and thereafter.
Love my leather interior! And that it looks like a fridge (mine is white). I think it is one of the few cars with a unique design (not a fan of the new toned down styling on the 08) for the artist in me.
Cruise control would be nice. I drove it across country and it made it fine over the mountains, but my legs were cramping from holding down the accelerator. Also, maybe just a tad more power in the engine.
