This car looks great on the outside as
well as the insdie but the performance
is sub-par. Pick up is sluggish
compared to other v-6's in the market.
The transmittion also has its own
problems as it tends to rush into third
gear, abd the driver gets the feeling
of anticipation as the transmittion
down shifts. While slowing down at a
red light, and it turns green, pressing
on the accelerater will make the
transmittion jump awkardly. After
market parts are hard to get. For
example, to get a aftermarket head unit
you would have to get a new kit for
that section of the dashboard, becuase
the current dash board theme is samll.
The engine is almost too smooth,
friends have gone into the vehical, and
do not notice the engine running. The
seats are confortable for long distance
driving. I found heated seats useful
from time to time. The in dash six cd
changer is quite convienent.
Toyota needs to re make this car with
ALOT more pickup that advertised. I
was decived at the fact that a 2 door
coupe with 225 hp and 240 ft lbs of
torque would be fast, but I was wrong.
TRD needs to hurry up and make
aftermarket performance parts.
