"bought it used from Toyota dealer with 54K miles on it. Now has 131K, and still feels like a new car. oil changes, air filters, tires, and a battery. that's all I've put into it. It's peppy, but surely not a powerhouse."

"I have 197000 on this car and until recently had only replaced front brakes and battery. I get around 30-32 mpg on combined city/highway driving. The cargo space is great, especially with the back seats being folded. Sorry to see they will stop importing to USA."
