I am a 16 year old high school student whose parents bought me this car last year. It is super reliable and I haven't had to replace or fix anything. It says it should get around 19-22 mpg, but I only get around 17. It is very weak and there is nothing special about this car to me. I do like the looks of it though. I chose this car because I know that being a Toyota, it will last me forever. I have 133000 miles on it and don't plan on getting another car for a long time.
Looks, Reliability, Space, It being a Toyota so I know it will last forever with minimal problems
Better gas mileage, more power, some special features that will make it a little cooler.
The 150+ horse power I-4 is adequate for
most applications. Excellent acceleration with
the manual transmission, strong, quiet and
tuff when reved. The interior build quality is
impecable. The 2wd model which I have
doesvery well on fire roads and minor off road
driving. The high ground clearance and
manual transmission allows the vehicle to
wedge into just about any forseeable
situation. With the right tires, it is great on
snow too. If you want to climb hills, get the
4x4, but the 5 speed 2wd it adequate for most
Solid interior, extremely low maintanance,
high ground clearance, and strong 4 cyl
Most Toyota truck stock shocks are cheep-
Had to upgrade to Bilsteins. Freeway ride is
truck like (then again, its a truck)
