"I bought this car new and it now has 78000 miles and the only thing I ever put in this car was 2 sets of tires and 2 sets of brakes. I would buy this car again tomorrow but the powers that be at Toyota stopped making this model. I am now in the market for a new ride but it is very difficult to find a coupe without this new type CVT transmission."

the best car i've owned. Never back to dealer

"I got my 2003 for my 16th birthday 4 months ago with 174,000 miles and love it. i always wanted a toyota and this is by far the best. I have put around 9,000!!! on the car. This is a very fun car to drive. I have never had a problem. Most of my friends like it until its their turn to sit in the back. I love driving this car more than anything else i've driven (2013 chevy malibu, 2012 ford fusion). I recommend this car to everyone. hoping to make it through college all the way up to 600,000 miles. I do not have any doubt that it wont. My complaint is that i'm only getting about 22 mpg with the 2.4 4 cylinder."
