I really enjoy my vehicle. I enjoy driving it and the performance. I like the interior design, body design and the mechanical mechanisms. I did purchase it used so there are issues that come with vehicle age(2002). There is no rust. I have owned Toyota’s that I have purchased used and was very satisfied with them as well. Gas mileage and engine mileage with little to no problems. What I purchased them for I was able to sell them after 5+ years and made 1/2 of the money back that I had purchased them for. I enjoyed them as much as my current vehicle and share the same opinions of them as my current Toyota.

My vehicle is very reliable.. It is a 2002 but the engine didn't go out until I hit 164,000 miles in 2018 other than that no major problems occurred.. It is very sturdy and heavy metal.. My car was parked and someone hit it extremely hard but you cannot when noticed because of how it was built.. It is a small car but very comfortable.. Gives you the race car feel which I love.. Features are pretty simple, radio, heat, air conditioner, front wheel drive.

It is good if you don't have a lot of money. It is an older car so obviously, it is not going to be the best car in the world. But overall it is a nice car.

I like the design of the car. Sadly though because of its wear and tear, I don't like it as much as a couple years back. But it was a hand me down so I cannot complain much. The gas maintainability is poor. But the overall driving is smooth for such an old model.
