Bought this for reliability, safety, and fuel economy and expected such from Toyota. Since then, there have been 2 recalls on the car. The latest is for 'unintended acceleration'! I see this as a serious safety issue and would strongly discourage anyone to purchase this car for that reason alone. I'll probably trade it asap. On the surface it seems like a decent car. The mpg is fantastic. The trunk and interior is spacious for its class and the mp3 player jack is nice. However, the cheap plastics have began to rattle. Both the seats and plastics show wear after only a year. It just doesn't seem to be made to last. Even though I knew it's not a sports car, it's boring to drive.
MPG. Mp3 and sound system. Ride is quiet and smooth.
Improve the quality of the interior materials and seats. Needs serious safety and reliability improvements. Steering is too light and finicky.
