Summary:

A reliable car that sips fuel

Faults:

Battery: Replaced at about 110,000 miles.

Starter: Replaced at about 110,000 miles.

Other than this, it's just been the normal things like brakes, tires, plugs and wires. Nothing else has gone wrong.

General Comments:

The car handles well around corners and in the wind and rain (Good tires).

I'm 5'10" and there is just enough leg room. All of the controls feel comfortable to me. The interior still looks new, except for the drivers set and floor mat of course.

The car has decent acceleration for in city driving. The power is Adequat for a daily driver.

The ride is good, but will be even better once I replace the struts, strut mounts, engine and suspension bushings.

Overall, I like this car a lot. I would buy another one only for the reliability and good gas mileage (average of 33-35 MPG).

Also, this car doesn't have a limited slip differential, so it's not a really good car if you have lots of snow where you live. It's good enough for flat country, but not hilly.

If you are looking for a reliable car that is good on gas, then look no further then this.

If you want more performance, get a later model or something made for performance. This is not a performance car.

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with this car. We have maintained the vehicle with regular maintenance, replacing the normal belts, filters and spark plugs when necessary.

The interior, cloth seats and carpet, has been subjected to a young child for six years and even pets during long distance travel and is still in excellent condition.

The only thing I would change about this vehicle is the comfort of the seats, as they are not meant for long distance travel.

General Comments:

This car handles well on turns and curves.

I do not like that the seats become uncomfortable after a short time in the car.

I love the low level of maintenance required.

This is the best car I have ever owned.

Summary:

One of the best cars you can buy!

Faults:

My husband had this car for 4 years before we got married and he had to replace the alternator once. Other than that absolutely nothing!

General Comments:

This car is very reliable.

We put over 220,000 miles on it and it still would have gone a lot more if I hadn't hit a deer! Me and my son walked away without a scratch and I didn't even jolt!

Very safe for a small car!

The rear seat is small when you have a car seat and no one else can fit unless they are real small, but that's OK, still a great car!

We are definitely fans of Toyota now!

Summary:

One of the best reliable cars on the road

Faults:

Nothing has gone with this car since I have had it.

The front radiator (not the Air Con one) needs replacing very soon which will cost £79.00.

One of the front side lights has just stopped working which cost £2.00 for a pack of two!

General Comments:

This car is very comfortable and extremely reliable.

One of the reasons I bought this car is because it is a Toyota and this car has been branded as one of the most reliable cars in the world.

Dashboard is well laid out and has front electric windows, central locking, air conditioning as standard.

The loudspeakers are the originals, but I have replaced the stereo. I have a professional car system, but only installed the head unit as the standard speakers are fine.

Lots of room for from passenger and rear passengers.

Handles the road very well, but not the fastest car around, but accelerates fine for me when needed.

Bought this car for reliability and comfort which it wins better than other cars I have driven (even new ones) and previous owned cars.

I do know some of the parts will be expensive, but I do know they will last a very long time.
