Having a car go to the shop for repair twice in ten years is pretty good if you ask me.
This car is reliable. Great for students or someone needing transportation to their job.
Gas mileage is good sure, but nothing like what other people have been claiming. I get around 22, on the street.
This car has never failed to start, or stall for no apparent reason.
It still runs like it did when it was new.
The acceleration is impressive for such a small engine yes, but nothing like a 6 cylinder.
The car handles tightly and is very responsive over-all. Acceleration breaking and transmission shifting have never been a problem.
This car feels very safe and sturdy; it was very well put together. It has held up good considering it has been driven every consecutive day we've owned it.
My Prizm is so stripped down it isn't even funny. But it's easy to forget that you don't have power-windows (or any options really) when your car treats you so well.
The engine runs quieter than my Dad's 2002 Volkswagen Jetta. Going 65-70 MPH, this car's engine runs suprisingly smooth, with little or no road noise.
If people try to poke fun at this car, you can simply point out that it was built and designed by Toyota.
My car has lots of use left in it, and I'm confident it will last me through college and beyond. This vehicle is highly reccomended for kids who are low on cash and need a decent set of wheels.
