Great gas saver, VERY RELIABLE!!!
Replaced front brakes at 155K.
The distributor went out at 160K.
The right inner CV joint was replaced at 182K.
Clutch is starting to slip (original clutch I believe).
Several interior plastics have broken such as the door handle, cup holder, air vents.
I bought this car from a friend and had no idea that I got such a gem! There is nothing super special about the car, several plastics in the interior have broken, but the Toyota engine and drive train are bulletproof.
I average 32 miles per gallon with a mixture of HWY and CITY driving. On a trip to the east coast last summer (3000 miles round trip) I averaged 40 mpg!! I have thought about buying a newer car, but I just can't justify getting rid of this car. IT IS A GREAT CAR!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
