"This car has been nothing but trouble for me. I bought it brand new in Dec 2001. At 50,000 miles, the engine used up all the oil in less than a week (about 500 miles). The dealer refused to fix it, and blamed the damage on me. I talked to Toyota, and they said the same. They wanted to charge me $2500 to fix it. I tore down my engine to replace gaskets, and bearings myself for $400. Next, at 70,000 miles, the right side driveshaft bearing inside the transmission failed. This cost me $1500. My mechanic told me that this is a design flaw, and he has fixed several of these. The problem is when you turnright to hard, it puts pressure on the bearing, causing it to fail. My car will not get better than 25 MPG now. I used to get 30 without even trying. Finally, my AC compressor clutch is failing, so there's another $1000. 80,000 miles= $5000 in repair plus maintenance costs."

"I bought this car brand new in 2001. Other than regular maintenance items such as change oil, buy new tires once, replace drive belt, buy new battery, new spark plugs, and replace front brake pads once, this car is extremely reliable. I now have 81,000 mile on it and it runs fantastic. Very economical 33 mpg city/38-40 hwy. Get the 1.8 Litre engine for best milage."

"I purchased this car new from the dealer in 1998. I have put 146,000 miles on this car. No major problems. It gets 34mpg. Terrific car if you maintain them. Plan to drive to at least 400,000 miles. Highly recommended."
