Car handles great in snow, rain. It is SEVERELY underpowered and I had to replace the catalytic converter at 62,000K ($2200). Transmission started slipping shortly after at 74,000K (new ECU, $2800). My average mileage is 20.8, so no sipper at all. Now at 100K the transmission is starting to act up again so its going out the door before it becomes my issue. Will never buy a Toyota again.
What about the bullet proof reliability? Never buying a Toyota again. Bought new and it is done at 100K. I had always bought used with over 100K and have NEVER been tormented as I have been with this vehicle.
