I bought this car used with TONZ on miles. 160,000. They said it had been rebuilt. NOPE. Car ran great with miles, even put up with me building it, turbocharging it, and street racing, all the way up to 160mph. These cars motors are great, they make a little clatter cause of the VVTI-L, but otherwise a great handling vehicle. Try taking a corner at 30mph, drop a low gear and floor it out of the corner. Whew.. the car will make you smile. AMAZING performance with turbo. Enough said. Great little car, not quite fast enough acceleration to be a race car, but it did okay with builds. The car has 170,000 miles on it today, and still stands up and shouts with the best. I give it a 8 out of 10.
Scary good handling when screaming down canyons, and traffic swimming. Great sound with Magnaflow muffler, and fun response in the snow.
MORE TORQUE AND HORSEPOWER. You make the car seem fast with its looks, and it barely beats Honda Civic Type-R's... Embarrassing Toyota.. Come on... You can do better.
