Wonderful And Reliable, Am Selling To Get A Dual Sport Motorcycle, Absolutely Loved The Car Tho. — It's a good car and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. Also toyota care is very nice takes care of maintenance for you and the (still active) 3 year warranty is just what they say it is. For instance the foam in the driver seat broke they replaced it no problem, and my dogs paw pushed in the dial to change the vents where the a/c comes out and they replaced the knob no problem. Keeping the Toyota in tip-top shape is a breeze it never needed anything mechanically, just tires rotated oil changed n gas :) also i take out the backseat headrests for maximum visibility out the back window and take out the back cover so you can lay the back seat down with ease it's a breeze to open and close it just pull the 2 knobs back there and you can carry anything i literally carried 6 foot posts home to build a fence for my dogs with this versatile little hatchback toyota =)

Pros: it's just a car, nothing special about it, but fast and zippy since it's manual transmission and very small the 106hp is more than adequate.  Handles well it's not a sports car but it's not priced like one either.  It's very attractive in my opinion it looks cool, 2011 and before the front was terrible and although not as bad as pre-2012 i don't like the front grill on the 2015's either.   the 2012 has a mean front face ready for action :)

Cons: i have nothing negative to say about the car other than the fact i'm 6'4 it can feel a little cramped for someone my size (over 300lbs), that said if you're say 6'2 270lbs you're gonna fit fine.
I fit fine, just saying big as I am it is a small car ^_^

Overall:

Economical Yet Different — Performance: This vehicle performs quite well except for a lack of cruise control. It accelerates normally, braking is quite good yet can get to you at times due to the quickness, and the handling is quite well. Build Quality: It seems like it is built to last despite its small size. The only downside is that the vehicle may shake due to the road. Appearance: The appearance is quite decent. Cost of Ownership: I do not own the vehicle; my friend owns it. Fun Factor: It's mostly fun, yet can be difficult without cruise control.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's economical.

Cons: No cruise control, and the instrument cluster is in the middle (i.e., you'd have to guess your speed because you are not looking directly at it)
