Driving this car is so easy, effortless and fun. Outward visibility is excellent, seating position is perfect, steering effort is perfect, brake modulation is perfect, engine is willing, smooth, and virtually unbreakable...typical Toyota. On road, the car behaves safely and predictably. One caveat: regularly check the TRANSAXLE fluid level. Mine apparently leaked and seized on me. Other than that the car is tough and refined. Definitely a very good value for the money.
Simplicity, reliability, and refinement. The way the controls feel, smooth and secure engagement of levers and switches, solid sound of all doors closing, no squeaks or rattles, give this car a feel of quality rivaling that of a German luxury car.
