    Great Commuter. Can Carry Bulky Loads And Still Provide A Comfortable Ride — Very dependable, but expected to get higher MPGs, especially with manual transmission. Great for everyday commuting, and surprisingly large inside for a compact car. Acceleration is slow, but it's not a sports car. Braking is very good, handling is good for a high center of gravity car. Outstanding headroom and cargo room, and excellent road vision seating position. Fit and finish have been perfect. Maintenance has been relatively inexpensive. Can be fun to drive, but annoying in bumper-to-bumper traffic due to stick shift.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Utility, cargo room, overall quality

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Toyota's Box Version 2 — Not a bad car overall, kinda hard to see out of. Great for trips, much better than the older version. Much better power, but not as good on gas. This model has cruise control, a must. Kind of strange dash design. Traded in on 2008 Hyundai for personal reasons, better mileage, and lower payments.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Sharp looking, plenty or room, great on trips, good power, all around good.

    Cons: kind of hard to see out of, dark on the inside. Strange looking dash. Fuel MPG not as good as the older ones.

    Pros: Its apprearance and looks great when you fix it up

    Cons: Its kinda low almost looks like its dropped so you have to find ways to maneuver it sometimes
