Scotty says this model is better with a CVT transmission w/ 6 cylinder engine. The 6 speed trannie had trouble. Otherwise, and reliable car. ONly made for a couple years because the 6 speed failures gave it a terrible reputation.
Don't buy used car with non-functional A/C (if A/C is important to you). A/Cs can be expensive to fix. Scotty talks about the old Toyota Vans like I had. He liked them. They stopped making them because they were expensive to build :(
