I really like this little car. Aside from the fact that its interior is very compact (very little leg room) and it is not the most comfortable of cars, riding being a little on the hard side, it is very responsive and easy to handle. Parking is a dream. As far as repairs are concerned I would say other than the usual ie: oil changes, brakes and belts and average wear and tear, this car is really a pleasure to own. It gets approximately 20-22 mpg on a city/highway mix. Considering the size of the car and the fact that it has no amenities (manual windows, locks etc. it doesn't even have a built in clock) other than air conditioning, that's not great but definitely dealable.
It's a cute little car and very economical.
I would love it if my seat would go back one more click. I am 5'6" and I really need a little more room. As for the people in the back seat the leg room does not exist.
This car is akin to the Honda Civic.
While not as sporty or as good looking
as the Civic, this car is just as
reliable but surprisingly better on
gas. 35 mpg or almost 400 miles on for
10 gal is a pleasure. Easy to work on.
I would have no difficulty suggesting
that someone buy this car.
Cheap cheap cheap! Wonderful gas
milage, great reliability, decent ride
comfort and acceptable looks make this
a great buy.
Hard to say as this car delivers
everything that a car of this catagory
I bought this car used and have had it
for 7 years now.It now has 122,000 mi
and it just won't quit.It has never
let me down and this car has been put
through the ringer.I just recently
replaced the original battery and the
original brakes and that is it.I
really won't be able to trust any
other brand but Toyota now.I hope my
next one is as great as this one.
Reliability and gas mileage.
It is by no means a fancy or flashy
car. But it was the least expensive
model at the time made by Toyota and I
can sacrifice flashy for reliablity
I got this car in college with 47,000 miles on it. Now at 149,000, I believe this car will run for another 149,000. This is the perfect car for a student. Reliable, efficient, lots of pep, great on gas and plenty of room on the backseat for all your books. Unfortunately, it does not have enough room for a family. Mine has now lived in it for over 5 years. I love this car so much, I withstood climbing over my seat to get my child in and out of her carseat until she was old enough to do it herself. Sadly, I can now get kicked from behind by my kindergartner who has very little room for her growing legs. I am sad to have to let it go. I hope I can find a family car as good as my TOY car.
Unbelievable car. 248K+ on her yet runs like most cars with 60k. incredible cars, have only needed to recharge AC. highly recommend, 36-43 mpg mix city/highway. get one if you can, you'll thank me for it.
