First year production at a newly retooled Mexican plant makes it an unknown, but first year models tend to have more problems.
2011 4dr Hatch 120-horsepower 1.6L I4
6-speed automatic FWD
Now that my transmission has blown at 2600 miles I am concerned about other repairs that may have to take place.

Toyota quality makes for a vehicle I plan to run over 180,000 miles. Peace of mind knowing vehicle will run well and trouble free at 150,000 miles just like it does now at 5,000 miles.
