Problemless — I love everything about this car. The backseat makes you feel like a king, and I prefer this to other car brand SUVs, personally I like it more than Lexus and Honda SUVs. I know the handling wouldn't be as good, but since it's an SUV you probably knew that already.

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

Pros: Very pretty car. It's a Toyota, so it's cool.

Cons: Handling could be better.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned, I've Had Many. 61 Year Old Alaskan — Best highway car driven, off road snow and ice here in Alaska great! gas mileage could be better but is well worth the money!!Just drove 1300 miles not a hitch! Headlights were able to show me the deer in plenty of time. passing was a breeze! cruise control was great! Looking forward to the trip home!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: quite on the road, good handling

I Love It —

This SUV is quiet, rides nice and has a very powerful V6 that's a blast to drive. Around town we have been averaging 19-20 mpg. A recent vacation trip, mostly highway with a lot of mountain roads yielded 26 mpg. 4 whl disc brakes with anti lock and ESC work GREAT. It also came with a hill assist feature that will hold the brakes for ~ 2-3 secs or until you hit the gas to prevent rollback. The winter package heats the outside mirrors and wiper blade tray and worked well. The 3rd row is comfortable and useful. The middle row is very flexible, 2 or 3 passengers with a cool storage compartment for the extra cushion if you're not using it. a Cup holder tray replaces it in this event. It's only FWD but did fine in the snow last winter. Here's some picky stuff I do not like. I hate how the door handles in the front obstruct the power window switches. There are also switches on the LH dash that are obscured by the steering wheel. There's a prop rod on the hood in this 30K SUV instead of a hydraulic piston. The cloth seats are comfortable but the cloth and headliner is crappy looking. The Trade in value seems to have taken a bit hit in the past year probably due to all of the recalls. P.S. mine was built in Japan so no gas pedal recall for me. I've only paid for oil changes and had no quality issues so far. Overall I love the vehicle and would recommend it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun, Fast, economical, versatile,

Cons: Resale maybe...

It Rocks — The car is super smooth, so you'll be going 80 down they freeway and feel like you're only going 30, which can be quite dangerous to my license! haha. All the different amenities are nice compared to my last car which was 10 year old, so the technology is obviously newer. The only downer is the speakers and radio are kind of lame. I got the base model, so i shouldnt expect much, but my 10 year old car had the JBL system in it, so there was a major difference.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: super smooth ride

Cons: no reason to hate it

The Toy — Truly the most awesome vehicle I have owned. Solidly built and it glides on the road. And of course inside, all the bells & whistles make driving/riding an even nicer experience. You sit high to see everything on the road, lots of room shoulder to shoulder and front to back. There can't be anything else on the market even close in the same price range.

Pros: EVERYTHING

Cons: universal garage door opener isn't compatible - see - I told you it is almost perfect
