Pros: The size is fun.
Cons: nothing !!!!Good with gas milage.
Std shift poor quality
Pros: Excellent ride yet good handling
Cons: Poor quality on clutchHad this model for 4 years, had problems with clutch master cylinder at 47,000 miles, Toyota turned me down on warantee repairs, At 61,000 miles cluctch burned out due to poor repair. Then tire pressure monitor went haywire, sold the car in frustation,but the design and concept were good. I think Toyota has the GM disease.
Pros: LED lighting and great handling
Cons: trying to insure - most want to list options as 'custom'This is a great 2 door coupe. Great handling & performance with a good ride. Has good mpg and quality. What really sold me on this car was the cool add ons available.

Advice: be wary, aluminum head $$$$$repair$$$$$I loved my car up until about 2 wks ago. I bought it new in 2005 gets great gas mileage compact yet comfortable...but....it started over heating last week it was the head gasket, had the head checked for cracks all was good and also had it resurfaced...they put it back together still overheating...the head is aluminum and is warped in one way or another...I already put almost a grand into fixing and now it needs a new head. it only has 103000 miles on it...I had hoped like alot of other foreign cars that it would last and last....no dice it is now just taking up space in my garage...oh yeah and I just paid it off too!!!
