I bought this car new and have put 190,000 trouble free miles on it. It does not even burn any oil between changes. I have done just the routine maintenance and replaced wear and tear items as needed. A few signs of age have cropped up lately, notably bad valve stem seals and front upper strut plates, but who can complain after nearly 200,000 miles? Get that kind of service from an American car? Doubt it.
Gas mileage. Still get 30 with mixed hwy/local, 35 on trips. Air conditioning still blows nice and cold. Overall mechanical reliabillity.
The 6 way power driver's seat offered poor thigh support until it became molded to my form after a couple of years. I notice this is still an issue with Toyota products to this day.
