Other than routine maintenance, I've replaced the radiator, alternator, starter, pinion seals (front and rear) and the front crankshaft seal. All this was after the 10 year mark in the vehicle's life.
This vehicle still starts and runs better than vehicles half its age, it has never failed to start even in temperatures up to minus 40 Celsius.
The reliability of Toyota shines through in this vehicle, but as with any vehicle if you don't do the required routine maintenance it's going to cost you more in the long run.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
