Toyota falsely advertised the mpg. They say it should make 30/38 and I'm getting 20 mpg!!! This is so far off - it's inexcusable. I made the same mileage with the car I sold - my 1971 datsun which I had owned for over 45 years! Pick-up not as good and the shifting gears not as smooth as my old car. Turning radius is lousy. Windshield wiper controls in a stupid place - constantly hitting them which is really bad for the windshield. There are a few other little things that I don't like. What I do like is having air conditioning and I do enjoy the power steering. I had one other big concern which is when I had to make an extreme sudden stop, the brakes made an awful noise. I had my mechanic check it out and they claim it's normal!
TEST DROVE THIS VEHICLE FOR OVER 6 MONTHS BEFORE I BOUGHT ONE PAID FULL PRICE FOR ONE AND BOUGHT ONE 8 MONTHS LATER FOR ABOUT 4000.00 DOLLARS LESS.. THE 1ST ONE HAS OVER 105,000 MILES ON IT IN LESS 13 MONTHS AND THE BRAKE PADS ARE STILL AT 90% I'M 6'4 AND 220 LBS AND FOUND THIS A VERY COMFORTABLE EVEN IN THE BACK SEAT. I WORK IN DELIVERY AND OVERALL AVG. MPG IS ....32 - 44 MINE HAS A TRAILER HITCH AND I PULL MY 16 FT POP UP TRAILER AROUND WITH EASE.....SEADOOS ANY ONE .... HIGHLY RECOMMENED FOR FOR EVERYONE AND I TWO TONE IT
The thing that sold me on this car before I got it was the gas mileage: 30 MPG in the city! I live in the greater metro Atlanta area, so I drive a lot more than I'd like. Keeping my fuel costs low was crucial in the vehicle I buy. This car more than fits the bill, the average MPG meter in the car's dash consistently tells me I'm above 30 MPG. My Android Fuelio app (to keep track of fuel consumption), has my average fuel consumption at above 31 MPG. For the biggest reason I bought this car, it really is living up to its sticker!
