"A solid but not exceptional vehicle, bought new, averaging 40mpg overall. Factory tires are poor for traction. Traction contrl cuts all acceleration at the slightest wheel slip making the car almost useless on slipppery roads; when pulling from side streets on wet roads the car just stops if the wheels slip even a tiny bit, leaving you momentarily stuck and unable to get out of the way of oncoming traffic--so unsafe that I reported it to NHTSA. Became tolerable with better tires. High quality snow tires make a great deal of difference and are ESSENTIAL if you are ever going to drive in ANY snow. Fabric seats soil easily--dumb idea. Fog lights cannot be run independent of regular headlights, making them largely useless. Poor rear vision d/t split rear window--bottom portion (the main viewing area) is ALWAYS dirty and hard to see out of. Quality is high but design issues make me wonder if Japanese designers have ever seen snow or fog. If drier climates woudl be a fine economy car but for NE Ohio, you'll need to upgrade your tires as soon as you buy."
"We purchased this vehicle new and love it. We have driven it across country at least twice. It holds its speed in cruise control better than any vehicle we have ever owned. Wish the exterior paint was a little more durable but other than that, it is wonderful!! We also have a 2007 Tundra."
"I have never regretted buying this car. I have been happy with it the whole time I have had it. The only thing I did not like was the beeping for both going in reverse and for weight in the passenger seat triggering a seat belt warning. I had to search online to find out how to disable these, since they don't tell you how in the manual. As far as complaints go, this is nothing. I had a Neon, years ago, that had problems galore. It was the last time I bought an American made car. Though, Toyota does make cars here. Anyway, the mileage is great, the features and performance equal or exceed my expectations. The car is versatile and roomy. I don't want for anything."
