We looked long and hard for a suitable vehicle that my elderly mother can get it and out of, but can comfortably haul my son & 2 neighbors to school, all growing boys. We were driving past the Scion dealership and decided to check them out - we knew within the hour this vehicle was for us! Comfy, great handling, easy to get in & out of and so spacious! Handles fine in snow when it's not too deep. Happy with our purchase. Gas mileage is not as high as we hoped, but truth to tell the smooth ride & handling seems to encourage you to zip along. Absolutely love it!
I like zipping into any little parking spot we find. Great cargo capacity-just folded the back seats down and had room for a 42" TV. A new desktop computer fit in back without even folding the seat! We added the overhead console for extra storage & colorful illuminated cupholders for fun.
Minor gripes: the passenger seat does need an armrest, and the rear window wiper doesn't seem to keep up well with snow & ice in the winter.
