Muffler replaced at 5,000 miles because I was driving too fast over a bump, and because this car is so low to the ground, the muffler hit the bottom and was destroyed.
Tire size is way too big for the car.
Cheap plastic from top to bottom.
Brakes are starting to wear at only 17,000 miles.
Suspension is always squeaky, and the dealer can never find out the cause of that. They are right now deciding if they should replace the whole suspension under warranty.
What has gone wrong with Toyota with the styling? My wife had another Toyota a long time ago, and that was a good car, but this one is the worst car I ever had since I first drove in 1949 (I'm 78 years old and I'm not afraid to say). This car reminds me more of a Volkswagen than a Toyota. Everybody including my wife says Toyotas are very reliable, but my last Minivan was way more reliable. My wife talked me into getting this car because of its reliability, which is false, and also because of the high gas prices we had in the past, and it does get good gas mileage, which is the only thing I like about the car.
We did need another car to replace our high mileage and gas sucking Ford Windstar, which gave us no major problems until it reached 180,000 miles. Time is money for me, and I'm not saving with this car being at the dealer half the time. If these problems don't get resolved, I'm going to file for buyout under lemon law.
