Thought about the LE, but didn't like
the mushy ride. Went with the SE with
the V-6. Glad I did. The strut tower
brace and stiffer springs and
performance tires, make this car a joy
to drive. Waited for the new 210
Horsepower engine in the late model 03
models. What a difference in power and
fuel economy. Getting 23city,
30Highway, Not bad! Only thing I don't
care for is the rear spoiler. Sporty
but not functional and makes backing up
difficult. Overall I'm satisfied with
my first Toyota so far.
Smooth V-6, Suspension. Opted for the
Woodgrain interior and side airbags.
Lower the rear spoiler, Power window
buttons not user friendly, Remote trunk
open feature should raise trunk lid,
not just release lock.
