- recent trip across florida.. 42mpg, snappy for a small 4cyl car, smooth predictable handling
- oem tire choice is terrible.. but what do you want for a $14k car?
I love this car. No seriously, I've had many other imports to date and so far this one takes the cake. I drove mine off the lot for just over $14k. I bought it new with 41 mi on it, I now have just under 10k on it and happier and happier with it every time I drive it. Its not a rocket of any sort, but for a naturally aspirated small displacement 4cyl.. its pretty snappy. when I test drove the car I had 4 adults in it.. and it did just fine. Toyota did their homework and geared the auto transission appropriately for the engines power curve. I cant speak for the 5sp as I have not driven one, but the auto downshifts when its supposed to, has solid upshifts and cruises at a decent rpm to make good fuel mileage. (3000rpm +/- @ 80mph) Only thing I have changed was to drop in a k+n replacement style air filter. Surprisingly, that change took some of the howl out of the intake at higher rpm (ex merging onto the highway or when passing) and brought me over 40mpg. The origional Goodyear tires are to be lacking though. Soft sidewalls provide a smooth ride but will fold over if you push them the least bit. They would do fine for most, I tend to drive a tad on the aggressive side. The factory (base model) sound system is .. well for a factory car its not terrible but its not audiophile quality. Over all, for $14k n change.. Its a great car. I'd make this purchase again in a heartbeat.
