After about 12,000 miles, this car started to fall apart. Rattles everywhere. Have replaced the steering column, brakes and rotors already before 32k miles. Problems with loud rattles in sunroof mounting. Misaligned fender. Busted trim. The antenna in the roof was disconnected and rattled. They have had to take the dash apart to fix rattles that are still there. AC smelled horrible. Suspension is noisy and squishy. All Toyota can say is sorry, but cars have problems. Have had it in the shop 12 times in the last 15 months. So much for Toyota quality. This doesn't even include any of the issues associated with the recall. I can't get rid of this car soon enough.
The car is roomy inside. It drives well on the open highway, but on curvy roads, the suspension is too soft. The stereo is not bad and it looks nice at night the way it is lit up. You don't get a lot of outside noise in the car, which makes all the rattles more noticeable.
Start all over with the design and finish of this car. Edmunds is correct when they talk about the cheap plastics. The overall finish is poor.
