Amazingly fun to drive, great car
Low profile tires have some problems when they meet curbs. Besides that, everything's great so far.
Bought the car used with 41k miles a few weeks ago. Very comfortable ride, quick, agile, and very good looking. Performs like a dream. The cornering is smooth as butter, and the acceleration for an automatic is breathtaking.
The interior is very roomy, but taller people may not enjoy the low roof, and certainly would hate the back seat.
I enjoy being able to rock out to the ipod, and being able to plug it in, hide it in the compartment, and control it with the stereo is a major plus. The audio system is extremely clean sounding, and if set in "feel" mode, the music is twice as enjoyable. However, the radio has trouble picking up some stations clearly that my previous car could get no problem. Plus, you can change the color of your stereo screen with the simple press of a button. All the stereo features are extremely easy to use, which I like greatly.
The car is very fun to drive, and long, winding roads will bring a smile to your face because the car is so fun to corner in.
Gas mileage is great; I've only had to fill it up twice since buying it, and that is with long daily commutes.
Panoramic roof with moonroof is extremely nice.
A/C works great, but it's too hot this time of year to test the heat out.
The ability to modify the car with aftermarket performance parts is extremely easy, and Toyota's TRD performance parts are almost of bolt-on application simplicity, with noticeable performance gains. Aftermarket exhausts go a long way and make the car sound like a race car, (which I prefer,) with a very appealing, low rumble type sound. Comes stock with race-looking rims.
Hatchback rear and fold-down rear seats make for excellent storage space, however there is no wiper for the rear window.
Great car, and I love mine. I would recommend it to anyone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
