Typical Toyota - you pay for a strong reliable motor.

Costs

3 out of 5

Servicing costs a bit steep, but parts are the best for the car.

Superb handling and great acceleration.

Performance

4 out of 5

On paper they don't look good, but my mates with 'faster cars' always want to go out for a spin..?!

Reliability

5 out of 5

Never failed me yet - even though I drive it hard.

I bought it because it's very rare. Never fails to turn heads. It's completely standard and looks great.

Comfort

2 out of 5

Seating bearable, but have no creature comforts. Cabin reasonable in back, but that's not why you would buy this car.

Immediately bought a Thatcham 1 alarm. Has been broken into, but that's my fault for leaving the stereo in the car.

Service

Good, but my dealer is extremely expensive.
