I've owned this car from new and have serviced all fluids regularly (transmission, coolant and steering included). It is my rolling office and my main concerns are reliability and economy. It avarages 30 mpg, needed front brake pads at 72,000, wiper blades at 75,000, spark plugs at 100,000, pads with rotors at 153,000. The only unschedualed repair to date was the right rear brake light bulb at 103,000. The rear brakes have had regular cleaning but have not worn out. If Toyota made appliances, computers etc. I would buy them
This car does exactly what I ask of it. When I want driving fun and excitement I drive my MR2 Spyder - which has provided equal reliability. I have owned/worked on/driven many cars from America, Europe and Japan, all the brands could learn a great deal from Toyota (and Honda)
