I get very good gas mileage. The only thing I don't like about my car - or the thing I dislike most is the fact that I have to take it to a mechanic to have the transmission fluid checked - there's no dip-stick in the engine which I find very annoying.
Nice, roomy, economical car.
Totally Un - impressive
Pros: None tremendously disliked this car . Its worse than a stock auto.
Cons: the fact that I own it and its my only car.This auto has a no tech package and came with a key entry system,its a uncomfortable ride, I stand only at 5'2 and it has no head room , many times I hit my head getting into this car is so stressful to drive seat is uncomfortable on a long ride it makes me tired has no cruise control its boxey in its handling on turns,has no pick up so it can not change lanes effectively or merge onto interstate traffic it won't ecelerate unless you floor it hard. other driver's frequently harass you that are behind you since they can't comprehend why your not moving.This car may be usefull to a new driver or a driver that only use's it for short neighborhood errands.
Very dependable car that gets great gas mileage. Take care of routine maintenance and this car will take care of you.
Pros: Sporty look, roomy back seat.
Cons: see aboveThe secret is the gas cap never fits very well so your engine light comes on and stays on costly mistake thinking the Catalatic converter was bad, anyway to fix it 'NOPE' ,the lumbar support broke the first week we owned the car. Wheels/rims have to be replaces often then bend easily. Several recalls. And bumpers are easly damaged backing up into something. Over all the cost of this car you get what you pay for it, actually has more power then you read about, gas mileage is also better. Mine is almost paid for will be good for another five years then I will go back to a American Truck that by then may get better gas mileage. Also be fore you ship a car to another state make sure this car was sold there, and can be serviced there, this model was never sold in Hawaii, and is serviced by a Toyota dealership garage.
Motorcycle now car!
Pros: The amount of room inside from a small car.
Cons: nothingI purchased used to save money on gas from a Jeep (still have) & this Aerio is great! Love the ride for traveling, little loose for the twisties. Power is great for a car that gets 30MPG average on mountain back roads, highway & traffic. Plenty of torque for the hills. Tons of room when seats are down & rear seats have great room for adults.
Great little car ... and cute, too
Cons: The only weakness I can see is that the paint is very thin, thought the color is great.I love this car. It's fun to drive and very comfortable, with better seats than Honda or Subaru (our last two cars). It has a fine Garmin navigation system, and true keyless operation ... and the sound system is much better than H & S, too. We're at 3200 miles now, and getting about 29 mpg avg.
