I bought this bare bones model because as a student, I could not afford any
other new car in the market that I could trust. I felt confident that by buying
a new Toyota I should not have to worry about expensive fixes for the next
five years (enough time to finish college and get a paying job). I finish five
years of engineering school, a two year masters degree program, and
started to work before the car ever saw a mechanic. It has been eleven
years now and the car has now endured a wife and two kids. It still runs
Reliability. The car has never left me stranded anywhere.
