Purchased new; Have kept up on all
maintenance and only 2 problems in 11
years: approx 1995 AC recall (covered
by Toyota) and the mechanism in trunk
which allows it to remain in the open
position broke (@ 110,000mi) The result
was $1,100 in repair costs because it
caused the hinge to break and it bent
the frame of the trunk itself.
Otherwise, GREAT CAR! I commute over
50 mi/day and am completely confident
in this vehichle.
Sporty style; reliability;
driveability - extremely stable
(although nothing like an AWD); gas
mileage remains 28-30 mi/gal
Increased hp; Only a 3 star safety
rating; If I had a chance to do it all
over again, I would purchase the All-
Trac, but one wouldn't be disappointed
in settling for this one.
Really can't use cigarette lighter (for
radar detector) at the same time one
uses the cup holder.
