The air conditioning unit was reconditioned at 170,000 kms.
The timing belt was replaced at 180,000kms, along with the water pump.
I had a problem with wheel alignment that wore out a new set of tires after only 40,000kms of use. I now have the alignment checked every 20-30,000 kms.
There have been no problems since with alignment.
The power antenna quit after it, s first winter. I now have a non-power version.
The center arm rest is wearing badly.
Small signs of rust on one wheel arch.
I got a new battery at 157,000 kms.
I use a Toyota deal to service the car. I have spent $4,000CAN. In maintenance costs over the 125,000 kms I have driven this car.
I travel 50,000 kms a year. This car has been fantastic. Unless it is full of people and going into a headwind it passes effortlessly on the highway and cruises comfortably and quietly. It gets 32mpg on the highway. It has only let me down once when the timing belt went. My fault I did not get in in quick enough. There was no engine damage at all when it went.
It looks great and I have total confidence in the car despite the high mileage. It's characteristics have not changed since I bought it. It is very stable at speed and is confidence inspiring when passing semi's on windy days in the rain.
I plan to replace it next year, but only because I like change and I think I want a sun roof. Also maybe a V6 for those passenger laden windy days. Then again, maybe I'll spend the money on other toys and drive it for another 125,000kms.
