Pros: Love the radio controls on the steering wheel
Cons: Did not corner as well as I would have liked.
Advice: Great car for the money. Definately a better buy than its brand name counterparts.I recently test drove the SE V6. I'm rough on my cars, I drive them hard, so when I took it for the test drive I truly worked its performance features. It has a lot of power, the engine offered smooth acceleration, it cornered smooth, but not as well as some of its wider couterparts. All and all I was pleasantly surprised with its power. I'm happy that I purchased this vehicle.

Advice: You will like itFor a V4, it is amazingly fast and stable on the road. After driving it for exciting 8000+ miles, I'm still enjoying the great fun and style. Very comfortable and safe with standard four airbags. It could be the best car that people can get at the price.
Pros: Mid-engine handling.
Cons: Dealing with dealership untruths.
Advice: Find somebody other than Toyota dealership to service it.Loved everything about the car except the insulting buying experience. True sportscar feel with surprisingly ample 1.8-liter power. Great fun to drive, so long as you don't pack anything larger than a wallet.
Pros: the complete styling
Cons: wish the SLE came with the exterior sport package
Advice: once you test drive it you will be hookedtest drove the SLE V6 convertible loved it and bought it. the ride is smooth and the interior and exteriors style is great! its the poor mans lexus --that is if you consider 34K a poor mans car! toyota really spent a lot of time in the styling and features of this car and makes the cost well worth it.
