Driven daily. It is now in the 300K mile club. Despite the scratches and dents, this car is fun to drive. Great on gas! Powerful 1.8 L engine and great handling. I just love this car, still looks great. You would not even think it has 300,000 miles. The engine still purring. Low maintenance, great reliable car. Way to go TOYOTA!
I have had this car for almost 8 years. I bought it used with 70,000 miles on it. The only thing have had to replace is the clutch at 108K miles. I am now at 167K and no problems except I need the valve seals replaced due to age. This car has been extremely reliable, never broken down, never runs bad. The a/c and heating system is superb. It handles like a sports car and is a pleasure to drive. I love that it is a 13 year old car and still looks very stylish.
Body style, sunroof, comfortable seats, acceleration, dependability, overall look of the car holds the stand of time people don't believe how old it is when I tell them. Very sharp looking especially with some 18" chrome rims on it!
A little more room in between the shifter and cup holder, different material fabric to line the roof with - that's it, love everything else.
I have owned this car for almost seven years. It has been incredibly reliable, with excellent gas mileage and very little maintainance. Regular oil changes, tire rotations and upkeep have made this car an amazing driving experience. I am sorry to sell it but have found a new Scion tC to take it's place.
I've had this car for almost 11 years
now and never had any major repair
work done. Oil changes, new tires,
sunroof motor for $50 and the required
high mileage check up. Been a great
strong dependable car and its still
worth $2600 according to Edmunds.com.
Can't beat it. Toyota's run forever!!
Sunroof, body style, steering,
security of the solid build of the car.
At 109,000 the vehicle had its first
repair job other than regular
maintenance. The AC valve was
replaced. Original front brake pads
were replaced at 70,000 miles.
Original rear shoes lasted to 92,000
miles. Engine and transmission still
perform well. Oil is still clean at
oil change time. Has never needed oil
added between changes.
Handles much like a sport car. Corners
well. Has a true "feel of the road".
Excellent gas mileage.
