Have always kept up the mechanical repair of this vehicle since purchase. Used official Toyota dealers for years until, just recently, when I found a local very knowledgeable repair clinic. Have replaced the radiator (with a larger one), water pump, clutch, brakes, radio, egr temp sensor, egr modulator valve, oil pressure switch along with regular oil changes. Had freon added to air conditioner system but only lasted 2 months. Probably need to replace compressor. Oil leak that engine will have to be dropped to fix. Check oil often. Paint fading and peeling very fast lately. Interior wore very well. Looks pretty good if cleaned often. Recommend a Toyota to all. Thank You
Electric door locks, windows and mirrors. Lumbar seat adjustment. Very few blind spots. Body style. Hatchback feature. Reliability. Sensor lights (also known as idiot lights). Pleasant sounding horn (toot, toot). Driver air bag. Comfort. Gas mileage (25 miles plus). Reliability!!!
Sounds silly, but cup holder much too close to radio and hard to change channels if holder is open. Not too low in found. Have scraped front underside while parking too close to berms or driving through a dip. More leg room on drivers side for taller, larger people.
