I Loved It. — I loved everything it had to offer, it was nifty, fuel economical. Very reliable; Toyota sure knows how to make 'em! Parts were never SO expensive. over all I LOVED it and would buy one again, same year and everything.

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

Pros

Exterior is shiny black. Windows are good for passing, traction on tires/road makes changing lanes smooth.

Cons

There are no keyless entry on the keys, but there are power doors and windows. Need a panic button!!  There needs to be more lights on the instruments in the dark of the night. (car feels and looks too dark). Not much room for your legs in the back seat.

Blackie — 2/4/14 I just got it today, drove home 20 mile. Great, smooth ride...radio was loud. Pick-up to get on freeway and accelerate was good. Seat was comfortable. I like blinker turn signal knob. Will see how it does in traffic tomorrow.

Great Car, Great Low Price — this is the best car in my opinion for under or close to 10 grand, seats 5 comfortably gets a consistent 30mpg+ and costs very little to own. reliability is off the charts and its very easy to resell. excellent buy

Love It, Fun To Drive — Traded my 2005 Mustang and got the top of the line 2009 Corolla XRS , Silver, w/59K miles, used. This car is great , fun to drive and saves me gas not like my mustang. Yeah miss my mustang but decided to get something to save gas and will have a great trade in value should I decide to let it go in 3 or 4 years...maybe :) So far, no problems whatsoever.

Pros

This car is a lot more fun to drive than our '06 Xterra.

Cons

The gas mileage isn't what we hoped it would be...  :(  Then again, this isn't a hybrid (though we weren't expecting it to be 35+.

Fun To Drive And Attractive Design/color. — It's a lot more fun to drive than our SUV and averages approximately 29 MPG currently. We're taking it on a freeway road-trip soon so hopefully that average will go up significantly. With gas prices over $4/gallon right now that is very helpful.

Great Car — I like this car a lot and would not get rid of it accept there is not enough interior room for a rear facing car seat behind the front seats, The person in front of the carseat only has 8 to 12 inches of knee space

Its A Great Car To Drive — Well I like the fact that it has the camry's 2.4L engine and it gives great gas mileage. I just didnt like the fact that Toyota could have done more to make it a much better car to have fun with!

I Love It — Excellent car. Easy to drive and handle on the road. Very cheap to maintain. Reliable and can be trusted when it comes to safety majors. A smaller version of the Camry. But not much difference in price. I will not hesitate recommending this car for family use.

I Like It — Cargo Capacity is too small. Performance on the high way is much better than expected. The maintenance and parts are very cheap. I just replaced, the from tires, front breaks + completed detailing for less than $ 300. The air condition is excellent ( very cold). My wife loves it as it is easy to handle and control on the road.
