Good car, but not really reliable
Serious engine failure due to water pump problem. Engine had to be completely rebuilt (done by official Toyota dealer). Even so it has consumed a lot of oil after that.
First bend of the exhaust system burned out 3 times.
Bad quality factory body finish. In addition the base layer is white. On my dark red metallic car every small scratch was visible.
Quite fast (top speed around 200 km/h) compared to the 1.6 (16V) engine and the size of the car.
If used decently fuel consumption can be as low as 7-8 litres.
Large trunk - around 500 litres.
Reliable air-conditioning and electric system.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
