- none. Fuel economy is not so good.
- Rides like a covered lawn mower, so where your mouthguard on long trips to protect your teeth.
Purchased As New
Terrible car. It is a covered lawn mower with about as much acceleration. It rides terribly harsh. I purchased this car new and finally had to get rid of it. I got a 2009 Equinox Sport. I only lost 4 MPG's average between a full size 2009 Equinox Sport and this piece of toyota junk. Let's face it, it's created by a company with the correct name. It's a toy. I had to put it away. Trunk space is none existent. I remember going to Christmas and where could I put stuff. Everywhere! No room. Get used to hitting shoulders with your passengers. Also, the automatic window controls don't work correctly. If I lockout the windows, it also locks out the driver controls. I've never experienced this before. How could something like this be missed? The arm rest is not in the correct place and so I cannot rest my arm. How could this be missed? The interior scratches if you breathe on it. Terrible quality. The tire monitor sensors kept malfunctioning. I've never had a flat, but had 2 tire pressure monitor sensors go bad. So, 100% of the time if the tire pressure sensor monitor light is on, it's not a flat. It's toyota dummy light barking at me. I'm so glad it's finally gone!!! Never again Toyota.
