I love everything about this car!

Fast, Fun, Gorgeous — Fast, great handling, decelerates as soon as you take your foot off the gas, so my well-preserved brakes are mostly used for coming to a complete stop. Reliable--only repairs are standard maintenance and oil changes. Consistently gets great mileage--30 in mostly city driving, 36 on long road trips (at 80 mph). Total strangers on the road and in parking lots give me compliments on this car, and it is TONS of FUN to drive. After owning it for four years, I still drive the 30-mile circle to get donuts down the street, and hit the mountains once a week just for the fun of it!

Fun Car — This has been a great car. I've never had a single mechanical problem in the 3 years owning it. All reguarly scheduled maintenance has been kept. The speed and lighweight of the vehicle makes for a fun driving experience. Being that I have child on the way, this car isn't as practical for driving a baby.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Cute Little Hot Rod — sporty appearance, 4 cylinder engine, very good condition, affordable, great fuel efficiency. Tires needed balancing and front end was aligned - handles like a dream. I would buy this vehicle again. The dealership was outstanding. Fantastic customer service - it was an excellent transaction.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Fun, agile, and a rare breed!

Cons

doesn't handle as well in wet weather

More More More! — Awesomely nimble, great performance- out of cars in its same category (MG TF, Mazda MX5 and Honda) its easily the best! Not bad fuel consumption, even if you drive like a crazed lunatic! A little problem it has is propensity of getting stone chips- toyota paint isn't as solid as others!

Pros

Everything

Cons

Not enough sunny days (oh and maybe the lack of storage space)

I Want For Nothing! :-) — This is the best car I have ever owned! Beautiful styling, the roof down on sunny days, great acceleration and a nice "growl" from the engine. I used to wish I hadn't sold my Celica. Now it's history! Even the fuel consumption and insurance costs aren't too painful.

Favorite Car I've Ever Driven By Chris
