One Of The Best Cars In It's Price Range — The first Toyota I have ever owned. Has a lot of room inside that from looking at the car from outside one would not expect to have. I bought it after extensive research on reliability, how it will hold it's value and fuel economy. The EPA Rating is 35/26 but I get better than that. I have measured it and got anywhere from 36 to 40mpg. Never have done a measurement "in town" One time in a very long trip I had a real nice tail~wind and got 44, Really! A bit under powered but you can't have it all, either economy or power. But For a 1.8L with 130HP it goes up a steep grade nicely, simply kick it out of Overdrive and it will tach at 3800rpm at 70 on a 6% grade and scoot right up no problem. It is very light, about 2500lbs and in a cross wind it gets pushed easily. Must be careful in windy conditions. I respectfully disagree with the Instant Market Value assigned to my car, as it only has 62,100 miles as of 12Aug2013 and is in mint condition

Faithful! — Low, low, maintenance. The gas mileage is wonderful, tires wear exceptionally well, great and efficient power braking system. Air conditioning, power windows, 6 ccompact disc changer, and a 60/ 40 split fold-down rear seat. This has been a wonderful vehicle!

Black Beauty — This car is very easy to DYI maintainence. Roomy for it's size, Easy to get OEM and aftermarket cosmetic and performance enhancements. Fun to drive, 5 star safety, These cars just want to go and go. I don't drive much during the winter months, after two months of not starting and covered, It started right up and was ready to go.

What A Great Choice! — Easy on the gas mileage. You can carry 3 kids in the back, why would you need an SUV.

Love It — Great gas mileage, fun to drive, cheap to operate. For being Toyota's cheapest car it's great!. I have been nothing but impressed with this car. The only things I would improve is putting a little more power and making it a bit quieter. $15,000 and 60k+ later all Ive had to do is oil changes.

Great Car — I've had this car for 2 years now and I am more happy with it today than the day that i drove it off the lot. It is a great car. The gas mileage rivals that of some of the new hybrids on the market. It looks great, drives great, the stereo system is great (6 disc in-dash changer,) what more can i say, the car is great. I would recommend it to anyone who is the market for a compact car.

Pros

Great Reliability, No costs other than routine maintenance in 6 years of ownership.  Easy on gas; 30-40 mpg with average around 33 for mix of highway and in town.

Cons

For long trips it may seem a bit small and when loaded down the ride becomes a bit more bumpy.

Absolutely Fantastic Commuting Car. Handles Well In All Weather And Very Reliable. — Great price new. Overall it is extremely reliable and cost efffective. Only cost has been routine maintenance in over 6 years of ownership. Cabin room is good for a small car as is luggage capacity. After 6 years there is a bit of road noise that seeps into the cabin though.

Cheap city car. Toyota = reliable

Cons

Lack of power and masculinity

Girls Car — This car lacks any serious power and room for gear. It is very thirsty at speeds above 80km/h. But it has low km's and is awesome on fuel around the suburbs. It has a wireless with AM, FM and a CD player. But crappy radio reception.

Pros

safety features, gas mileage, great appearance, and comfortable, engine runs quietly, beautiful purr if you accelerate fast enough, brakes are great, trunk has a lot of room, and nice amount of storage compartments around the dash and middle console, great family car. Repair costs are low as are prices at the pump because of it's great fuel economy. Car is very fun to drive and feels safe.

Cons

brakes do not like handling MN winter.

Great Car, Worth The Investment — Bought this car used in 2006 with 12,000 miles roughly on it and we are now just hitting over the 65,000 mile mark, having only recently taken it in for some brake repairs. I bought it to get me through college and it sure did! It got me through college, a couple road trips, and is now the family vehicle. It is safe, very reliable, fun to drive, gives me great gas mileage, the prices at the pump are always nice the couple times a month I need to fuel up, and looks great. My only issue I've ever had with this car is during winter months in MN. Regardless if my tires are new winter ones or not, I always have to be a little more careful driving on ice. I don't know exactly why, I'm probably just not a good winter driver, but there's my two cents about it. I adore this vehicle though as it has always come through for me and continues to prove itself as a great investment.
