Very reliable, no new technology needed.
I bought this vehicle used, from a Toyota dealership, when it was four years and 51 thousand miles old. I've had it for nearly seven years now and have had nearly no problems with it. While it is not used for long daily commuting, but mostly short distance, around the town driving, I have also taken many road trips without incident. Having put 80 thousand miles on it since my purchase, I have made sure to keep up on all regular and recommended maintenance. Some minor problems I have experienced have been the abs assembly unit making a noise and possibly not working anymore, but no lights come on. I got my second set of new tires about a month ago and also replaced all five tire pressure sensors, which had probably never been done before. Those are only estimated to last seven years, but I got ten out of them, so that is a positive. There was a recall a few years back on some sort of part that caused the car to make an almost unnoticeable/slight jerk while driving. This would only happen randomly while driving, but stopped with foot on brake at a stop light or similar. I took it to a dealership to have the part replaced, but sometimes I still think I feel it. In general, I do not recommend dealerships for service, as I also had a different one leave out the transfer case plug when I had the 110, 000 mile service done. It drained all the way out and I drove for a couple days with dry gears. After taking it to a local oil change station, they had to put 5 quarts in, so I wouldn't be surprised if my rear-end goes out sooner than later because of that poor service job. Overall, the I love the features in this car and am unimpressed by the technology in newer vehicles. It has just what I need and has always proved reliable, comfortable and nice to look at. Although, my husband does not agree about it is comfortableness, but he rarely drives or rides in it, so that is irrelevant.
