Summary:

The best car I've owned

Faults:

Occasional noise from the instrument dash.

General Comments:

The best car I've ever owned. I am still very impressed by the overall abilities of this little car. It has been driven mainly in the city, but also at high speeds on motorways, in the furnace hot summers of Greece, and in -20 degrees Celsius and snow and icy roads in the mountains in the winter. Never had any problems and on a very few occasions all it needed were a pair of snow chains to make just more capable in snow than an SUV.

Summary:

Good for economical driving within city limits

Faults:

Clock lost memory every time the engine was shut off. Replaced immediately.

Rubber trims of 3 out of the 4 windows were deformed from the beginning. Replaced immediately.

Gear box is very notchy and feels as being one from a bicycle (very light).

Inside upholstery finish not according to Toyota standards.

General Comments:

The car is safe and comfortable, but the driver sits high and feels insecure to drive sporty.

Side support for the driver is inadequate.

Very convenient for city driving.
