As far as exterior design, nothing beats it--it's a cute car. But the power just wasn't there. My mom drives a 4-cylinder Ford sedan that seems to have far better power. It was really sluggish up hills. And the fuel economy really wasn't there either, surprisingly. It was reliable in terms of service though. I only recently had an engine light come on, and then a report came out that said it might just be a glitch. I traded it before I found out. For me the worst feature was interior noise. It didn't seem insulated or something-- just wasn't really smooth in that respect. Overall just really a so-so experience for me. I doubt I'll even buy a Toyota again.
