2008 Toyota VIOS from Indonesia
A transportation car, do not expect too much
Paint scratches, minor, bumped a motorcycle.
My main complaints are the stability and car aerodynamics. The engine is powerful enough, yet the suspension can not compensate the body roll. Very hard to take bumpy roads, especially on winding roads, extremely hard to take full control. Stability is the main issue.
The control panel, placed in centre of dashboard might be intriguing, but is not very effective.
Anyway, as transportation from A to B, this car might be very handy, especially in the jammed traffic of Jakarta. Amazing mpg also.
Interior is a bit too much of plastic look, not so comfortable seating, very small legroom for rear passengers and some of the upholstery is easily worn out. But all is minor.
And I am only doing scheduled maintenance as directed, no plans to improve it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
