Extremely reliable. Change the oil and maintain it well, and you will get 200,000 miles out of it. Very easy to drive, easy to use dashboard controls. Well engineered. This is the kind of car you keep in the family for 15 years or more. Great car for a college student.
Plenty of leg room for a tall driver. Easy to use dash. Nice body design. Still looks fairly with it, even though 13 years old.
No real areas to improve. Could use 10 or 20 more horsepower, but acceleration is adequate. Replacement Toyota parts are pricey.
