Summary:

Not so great car - maybe it was just old

Faults:

The doors wouldn't open right. The windows also wouldn't close right. So had to get all those fixed.

General Comments:

I had to sell the car quickly before too many things went wrong.

It was also huge on gas - expected as it was V6 2.5 liters.

I recently bought a Toyota Spacio now - so I can feel the difference. I am thinking about getting a 4X4 in the near future.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Very reliable car with plenty of grunt when it's needed.

Very comfortable with plenty of luxury features such as electric mirrors, cruise control, velour seating, 4 point driver's seat alterations, etc.

Great fuel economy on the highway of 7.2L/100 km on the freeway ranging to 8-10L/100km in traffic.

Good size, not being too wide and therfore easy to park with a good turning circle.

Holds its value, and easy to resell.

Turning circle? I had a Taurus with about the same radius. I'm constantly dismayed at the radius of my '89 Camry. Also the power steering seems under assisted, although this may be due to the car's age. I really expected better from such a small car. I do love the mileage, though.
