First, the huge tires create lots of noise and are very expensive to replace. Second, the c pillar is just to thick and long/angled and blocks views. I really feel that if they had put on normal tires and lowered the car an inch, I would get much better highway mileage, the car would be less noisy, and the cost for new tires would not be a shock. Otherwise, it is a very pleasant near-luxury wagon. I could have used another set of latch in 2nd row.
the fact that it is a Toyota and almost a wagon. the 4 cylinder engine is great.
i don't like the keyless ignition. the option packages drove up the price - i almost didn't buy it.
