    Great Practical Car — I like the gas mileage and all the practical positives about this car. Driving is very easy and lots of visibility. Easy to maintain with having to have an oil and filter change only every 5,000 miles. Great family car.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great gas mileage, lots of head and foot room, easy to maintain

    Cons: Pick up

    05 Box Aka Pc Medic Mobile — I bought this for business use and it has been very good for that. Tons of space, unique design that looks great with vinyl wrap, sporty with the 5 speed, great gas mileage considering how aerodynamically challenged it is. Defiantely has been a vehicle I am proud to own.

    Pros: Tons and I mean tons of room.  Sporty with the 5 - Speed.

    Cons: Could use more power

    The Most Reliable Car I've Ever Owned, And An Amazing Deal. — Probably the best car I've ever owned. Between the interior space, which makes the car feel huge, and its compact exterior makes it super easy to drive and park, it really is different then anything I've ever driven. I've never had an issue with this car! It's only ever needed gas and fluids. It has a good ride feel, comfortable seats, and is great for trips especially with the XM radio which is just awesome (especially since it's free!). This car may have been geared towards kids in their late teens, but it really works well for families with all of the interior space, and fuel economy it should not be overlooked. Really an excellent car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Amazing amount of space, great gas millage, fantastic visibility, easy and fun car to drive... Unlimited free XM radio!

    Cons: Could use a little more power for uphills if it has a lot of cargo

    Toaster On Wheels — Custom wheels and black/blue leather TRD racing seats. Would like to see it with a big more power, may look into adding it to it. Love the car, love driving it and riding. Smooth running, and great for long trips. Recently got a 7 inch double-in headunit that works as my radio, mp3, vcd, mp4, usb/sd port, tv, dvd player

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its capacity

    Cons: needs a little more umph

    Ugly But Cute! — Some say its ugly, but it drives pretty good and has a ton of room inside. Gets great gas mileage too! Other then some odd issues which I believe are because Toyota cut costs to make this cheaper, its been a great car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handling, confort and gas mileage

    Cons: Minor issues

    Wonderfull — the preformance derived from the 1.2 is lacking but over all it is made up for by the handling and the safety. the build quality is wonderfull imo nothing flimsey and nothing that seems out of place. the apperiance although known for its boxy exterior is also know to be a show car, and for the interior it is very modern and sleek with much leg room for all passengers. the car for the most part is fairly inexpencive, being around 12,000 usd. the car is alot of fun to drive and very simple to drive, most of all very comfortable.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: looks and handling

    Cons: small engine

    Best Ride So Far. — Can't beat a Toyota! And there's next to nothing out there with as much versatility for modification. Anything and everything can be done to these things! Reliability and build quality are top-notch, everything you would expect from a Toyota product.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Slow, but fun to drive.

    Cons: If you like circles...or triangles...

    I Haven't Broken It Yet — I bought this box with a lot of aftermarket options, suspension, exhaust, intake, stereo, lights, 18" enki's and a huge panoramic sunroof. I couldn't imagine own one without any of this. it would probably be very boring, but very efficient. 34 mpg

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: gas mileage and customability
