This is a great small ute veh. In general this veh is very fun to drive. Even more so in the winter snow. It has good ground clearance and has a smooth ride with smooth shifts. With the optional 6 airbags , ABS , Traction control , VSC and Side impact beams you feal very safe. It has a great turning radius and for a 4 cylinder has great pickup and go. In very low speeds (aprox 1 to 10 MPH) the transmition could be a little smoother (has trouble finding the gear you need) but once your acclerating normally your fine. In general this veh is built solid and if you treat it right by not beating on it, changing the oil and keeping up the maintaince it will last you well over 200k miles
I love the radio controls on the steering wheel. THE AWD is a must for drivers in bad climates. VSC and TC has helped avoid accidents and is just another reason why toyota makes quality products.
I would love to see an HID lighting package! I would also like to see the back glass either roll down or flip up.A gate that flips up would be more pratical. More trunk space too!Back seats that fold flat and flush with the rear floor would be great. Larger gas tank. NO TIRE ON THE BACK GATE!!!!
This is the worst car I ever owned. I am lucky to get 17mpg around town and 22mpg on hwy. For a small car, light car it has no guts. It is reliable and has a nice look; however, it really stinks. I just traded mine in for a Saturn SUV.
