Pros

Gentle entry level SUV with great value for your money

Cons

its still a 5 seater...if you need more space, decide to look else where!

Gentle Suv — Great car for what it does....good gas mileage for a truck on its size...would have been nice to have a third row seat.....but i guess that was done for the 2004 onwards...good 220HP and it does pick up pretty well too...runs great even with a full load of passengers and cargo...nothing really fancy on the interior.....on the whole, it drive very well and very quiet ...a lexus in disguise...

Pros

Wish I had it again for the up coming winter time but overall I would recommend this for a family just starting off. Very reliable no worrys of it not starting.

Cons

Gas mileage

Wish It Was Still Mine — Good SUV to have for the winter. Never had any problems with snow last year and is actually quite fun in the snow. wasn't all that tough on power/acceleration but now that I have the solara with the same v6 it moves a lot quicker now. The only real bad part is if your like I am and need a cheap gas saver.... this is not the vehicle for you... gets around 15-20. Not bad if you don't drive 60 miles per day :- p

This Is The Perfect Cross Of Car And Suv — Its fully loaded with power and comfort and ability its said to have. I had the option of this or a used mercedes or lexus of the same kind of models...I.E. rx300. But fell in love with this vehicle. Its perfect for one-five full size adults or a load of kids. Tons of safety features to go with its sporty look complete this well made solid quiet Toyota. Its only draw back would be not having rear ac vents!

Smooth Luxury And Great View From Up High! — First of all, it's so nice to actually see out of an SUV. Love the power seats. Ultimate comfort, stylish interior. Easy to manuver and rides like a luxury car (Camry underneath). Have had this car for almost 3 years with no maintenance other than the oil changes.
