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

The powertrain.
2005 0 My complaints about this car are limited, but critical. In the time I had this vehicle, I drove less than 80k miles. In that time, I had to replace a head gasket (At 50k), and was about to do so again (at 79k) before I made the decision to sell it and get something else. The window motors are attached to the windows using plastic pieces that break easily, and are non-replaceable, requiring the entire window motor and armature to be replaced (For around $200, just for parts) rather than replacing the 10 cent plastic clip that broke. The CD player started acting up at around 25k miles, and by 45k was dead and gone. I admit that this was several years into ownership, but it wasn't that frequently used.

Entire car feels like a rattle trap. Transmission going bad after only 30,000 miles. Starts hard.
2003 4dr Sedan 165-horsepower 2.5L I4

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

1. Paint poor in 1st year, chips off 2. Engine sensors die often (recalls galore) 3. Pre-Catalytic converter disintegrates and particles are sucked into engine and kill it. 4.Butterfly valve screws and plate fall into engine from intake manifold. & mo

Its a Toyota, simple as that. They are built to last.
2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
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.
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 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
4-speed automatic FWD
Other than a few minor warranty problems the car is solid.
2008 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

I have had 3 Toyotas now and all have been trouble free for over 150,000km.
2007 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
This car uses the tried and true 1NZ-FE engine and 2nd generation of the C50 transmission, both of which can take a licking and keep on ticking. It enjoys the typical and legendary Toyota legacy of reliability.
