Lemon

Worst lemon. Tires deflate consistently even new factory, under grill fell off low millage, stereo is rough, heater takes 20 min to heat up, paint is nice but not strong, trim was fading at a year, doors moan, doesn't feel safe. Year after I bought it was told it isn't true Toyota. Was bought out by some cheap company and adapted. Think the dealership should have revealed that before I bought it. Kinda dirty practice.

5.0

Good Car

This is an overall solid car. It's comfortable for me. I am 6'0" and even though most would laugh seeing me in the compact car, it's comfortable for me. The vehicle is reliable, easy on gas, and easy to handle.

5.0

lovely "new" car....

what i got for my budget far exceeded expectation; amazing comfort level, smoothness, ease of handling and even beauty! Wasn't expecting the last one. Keyless ignition is beyond belief, radio omg, seats, yes....color, metallic indigo blue! I'm in heaven
