Happy with everything but ergonomics. At 5'9", one would think I would have plenty of headroom. But in fact, with the seat bottomed out I still only have a couple inches of headroom unless I lay the seat back like I'm in a sports car. I worry about this in the event of an accident - I will, for sure, be left permanently wearing the sun visor as a hat. Also, the tilt of the steering wheel needs an additional stop point between the lowest and 1st up position. Again, I am an average build...not sure who Toyota engineers were targeting here.
Exterior looks, engine (V6), Averaging 20mpg, no problems at all (mechanically) at the 40K mile mark.
Hire a Human-Factors Engineer for better ergonomics. Level out the vehicle by raising the front.
