Fun and practical
I have had sensor issue since 45000km. Doesn't harm the car, so the mechanic I took it to keeps saying don't waste your money on fixing it.
Replaced the heat shield ($18); made a really bad rattling noise.
Regular maintenance; I have replaced every single fluid at 87000km, and the belt; it runs like it's brand new now.
Oil gets changed every 5000km with 100% Mobil One synthetic oil.
Never had a issue starting the car at -30c. Considering I don't plug the car in.
For a small car with an automatic, it sure has some power, which makes it fun to drive.
Love the hatchback with all the room. Managed to fit a 11 drawer tool box 2 pieces into it.
Doesn't cost a lot to fill it, even when gas price were high when I first bought it.
On long drives, the seats are a little uncomfortable, and I wish I had cruise control; otherwise the car is perfect.
The only issue I have with the brand is the dealership. They're rude and a bunch of p***ks. If I buy a Toyota again, it's not going to be at that dealership. I don't take my car there anymore; found a specialist.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
