It seems to be a car i will be able to depend on.
So far i feel it was a wise purchase. The car is very clean inside and outside. Mileage is low for a car of this year. Love the color and the overall design of the Scion. I am glad i showed up at the car lot when i did it very well may have been gone if i had been a day later. Thanks to everyone at Superior Kia for making sure my buying process went very smoothly.
Most reliable car I’ve ever own.
Best car ever. Plenty of run in the back and trunk for family trips and projects. Perfect for long commute, great on gas. I highly recommend it, and can’t wait for Toyota to start making this car again in 2021.
Wish I could give it 10 stars
I have owned this car TEN years in December. I am in as love with it today as I was in December 2010. 2009 model Never has had a single mechanical problem....EVER. Tires and brakes, batteries and regular maintenance is about it. Total repair costs in 10 years is $88. That's a coil pack, a battery terminal, and the radiator overflow tube that I broke. Pluses! Interior room is exceptional for a small car. Ride is good and handles well. Comfortable on long ride and good for tall guys. Love the styling too. Easy to get in and out of. Peppy engine. Just an all around fun car to drive. CONS: Few nitpicky things. Road noise is UNBEARABLE, but I deal with it. I'm about to remedy that. Stupid center console and that dumb little armrest on the 08-10 models. Swapped that to a later one. Dumb single reverse light. Also improved on later ones. Single intermittent wiper setting is annoying because it's either too fast or slow. Changed to Prius one with several speeds. also, the later ones don't have the temp gauge the older ones did. That was supposed to be an upgrade? The carpet on the back of the seats, and the floor for that matter is utter GARBAGE. The back of the seats grabs every dog hair that fell out of your dog, and you can't vacuum it out with the suction of a black hole. They will be there for eternity. Major...major cheap. It does however have the oil consumption issue that's common with this engine in the older ones, and now at 200k it's consuming about a quart every 700 miles. It doesn't leak. It doesn't smoke, and it doesn't foul plugs. It runs perfectly. As good as ever. I keep an eye on the oil level and keep rolling. By far the best car I have EVER owned. Nothing else comes close. I'll replace or rebuild the engine soon and keep on rolling. I have no plans to sell it anytime soon.
