Recall on master brake cylinder. 4 wheel alignment (toe) was grossly out of spec from the factory. TPMS is not reliable.

The powertrain.

Entire car feels like a rattle trap. Transmission going bad after only 30,000 miles. Starts hard.

This car was in the shop more days then I actually drove it. Worst vehicle I have ever owned.

I am a stickler on maintenance and was very disappointed on the driver side drive shaft seal leaking twice! I was not given any reason why this would happened but so far since the last repair it seems all is fine. I change my own oil and was able to notice the problem way before it was serious as I notice an oozing of manual transmission oil around this drive shaft. I have not been able to find this is a common problem though.

Its a Toyota, simple as that. They are built to last.
2009 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have not had a single problem with the car in the first seven months of ownership. Put gas in, change the oil and it just goes.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
It has a good reputation. I have known many Toyotas to have well over 250,000 miles on them without so much as minor maintenance and a few small repairs.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Have owned this car for almost three years. NO need to go to the shop at all (oil changes and other routine maintenance has been done at home).
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

I have had 3 Toyotas now and all have been trouble free for over 150,000km.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Know others who own Toyotas and all are very happy.
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

Other than a few minor warranty problems the car is solid.
2007 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
No problems whatsoever, although its only been 14 months and 10,000 miles so far. Seems solid and well made, for a car in this class.

No experiences with mechanical defects, just repairs from normal wear and tear, and even those are rare.
