Best midsize value on the market. I wanted stability control as an extra safety measure but was kind of annoyed that this requires a whole host of non-safety oriented upgrades like leather seats and a moonroof (which is actually very nice). The other wagons in the lineup require premium fuel!? Yeah, I wanna spend an extra 20 cents per gallon for the life of the car. Anyway, it is a very nice driving car, very tight for a wagon, and can carry anything when considering the interior and the roofrack. One more thing about the roofrack, take off your crossbars when not in use. That little effort will take 5 minutes and can save you on mileage.
Storage kind of stinks. Glove box doesn't fit much. Silly little ashtray is all but useless. No practical change holder. And as a running theme, work on better mpg. I am averaging 20 mpg. Talk to Toyota about dropping a hybrid under the hood.
