Despite having an extended warranty the vehicle was in the shop so often it became too inconvenient to own.

I bought this car as a "Certified Used". I replaced the main computer twice in the first 3 months. I have replaced 02 sensors every year, sometimes up to 3 a year. Repairs are expensive and required often.

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

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.

Other than a few minor warranty problems the car is solid.

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).

I have had 3 Toyotas now and all have been trouble free for over 150,000km.

Know others who own Toyotas and all are very happy.
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.
2007 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
No experiences with mechanical defects, just repairs from normal wear and tear, and even those are rare.
