    Reliable — Updated, 26June15. Now more than 4 years of ownership this car is everything I expected and more. A/C blows popsicles at idle. Uses no oil, no problems at all. 75k miles now and have spent nothing for repair. Only regular maintenance costs. No regrets. Test drove a new Corolla, didn't like it so much. The CVT is sluggish up to about 30mph but the 2006 was actually quicker and half the cost of a new one. No, it's not for the younger people. At 61 years old it suits me fine. Not a chick-magnet (like I care) but not a cop-magnet either. (I do care) Have already taken several one-stop 250 mile drives and the comfort exceeded expectations. 40 mpg cruising at 65 and 37 mpg at 80 mph. Decent Audio system. Still starts first time every time with a very short cranking time even at 15°. Still no wind whistles either, quiet as a higher-end car. Now planning on a very long road-trip later this summer, and have no hesitations about it. The 130HP 1.8L has more acceleration than one might think, a perfect blend of power and economy. When I have to 'put my foot in it' I can actually feel the VVTi kick on at about 4000 rpm. I am never in a hurry, actually a quite laid-back driver content to follow a slow truck on a 2-lane highway I frequent, US 395 in East Calif. But when clear, and the truck is doing 50, I can pass safely.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Economy, Reliability, roomy for small car

    Cons: None

    Great Value Car — Bought this car new in '06 and have had zero problems. Just a few minor fixes to some interior components. Keep up with regular maintenance and this car should reach 250-300k no problem. I bought the CE with no options, but this car has done what I paid for and expected it to do, run hassle free and get good gas mileage! It's been a commuter car for over 7 years, doing about 70+ miles a day, usually get between 38-40mpg hwy. Decent cargo space too!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Easy to maintain, great MPG's, fairly roomy and cargo space for a small sedan, decent in inclement weather with the right tires

    Cons: Not very comfortable on long drives, some of the interior components are pretty cheap, not a quiet car

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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.

    Very Dependable Car — Handling like a economy car. Can see 360 from driver seat compared to SUV and Coupe. AC never is an issue always cold or hot when needed. Not much power but that is why its Manual shift to get the most of what the engine can give. Easy shifting between gears.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great Gas. Very Reliable. no problems with anything in the car. Keep it maintained and it will treat you well.

    Cons: Very low Horsepower. Manuel shift. not much room in the back for a family.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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.
