Purchased used 5 years ago with 86,000.
Didn't flinch at the mileage due to Toyota's reputation for reliability; car drove well, at first. Sold at 109,000 due to expensive repair and maintainence costs including:
All 4 wheel bearings, $500 a pop.
Breaks completely replaced, some more than once. $2,000 spent on breaks in just 2 years.
Evaporator sensor went bad; $400 just for the part. Muffler developed a small hole; $400 for a new one.
Straw that broke the camel's back: drive shaft developed a wobble and needed complete replacement $1,200.
Cut my losses and unloaded the hunk of junk.
Other car was a 20 year old Subaru Legacy that had fewer problems and was cheaper to maintain.
Perfect size (not too big or small). Generous cargo area.
Tight turning radius.
Maybe I got a lemon, but I don't think they make them like they used to.
