Money well spent.

Handles well even at my normal cruising speed of 65. My wife and I are both happy about the lack of excessive engine noise, even at 70 mph. Gas mileage averages 30+ in overall driving. A little slippage on snow and ice but I think it's because of the standard "Continental" tires.
Versatile seating and carrying capacity, peppy enough to pass, OK fuel efficiency and reliable.
Would like to see a flat face instrument console cause cleaning the individual circles is stupid. I'm 5'10 and would like another inch upward play in the steering wheel. How about a standard travel bar for hanging clothes. Rear bumper paint scrapes from normal unloading is not up to Toyota standard.
