I bought this car new and have had few problems. Replaced CD player under warranty due to skipping. Clunking sound in rear has been present since new and I've still not found the source but it's tolerable. Very well built, smooth ride GREAT mileage w/ 29+ MPG incl. many central Pa. mountain miles. Nearly 150,000 miles now without a mechanical issue. Just replaced the timing belt and rear struts, the first maintenance other than normal brakes and oil changes. I've been using amsoil synthetic and changing on 20,000 mile intervals since new with no problems. Now starting to puff a faint blue smoke immediately upon startup when cold. I'll run it until it dies and hopefully buy another toyota.
Handles well, very strong for a 2.2 liter 4 cyl., great fuel mileage, no rust... even on Pennsylvania's salty roads.
Interior cramped, seats uncomfortable and not designed to carry 5 adults.
