    Yes the thing your reading above is right

    I read some reviews about this car.
    I am going to write down here in nice and short manner. Please feel free to ADD/Correct/Update me


    1. Poor Paint Quality, Paint constantly cracks (chips)
    2. Engine doesn't idle and produces lots of vibrations.
    3. When car is on the move, you can feel the vibrations and hear the the gravel road
    4. Bouncy Ride on the road
    5. No proper seals for the doors
    6. Battery dies if not used for a week or so.
    7. Transmission Issues : jerks on the drive and while reversing it produces jamming sound
    8. Mileage is about 10kmph compared to promising 17 by Toyota
    9. Interior plastic quality is pretty bad
    10. Overall build of the car is not a Toyota way of making cars

    that is sad i had high hope for this since it looks pretty good but i guess toyota went the all cheap route with this. A little refinement wouldn't have hurt.

    Although i would want to see the performance figures compared to other in the same segement. That might be its only saving grace.

    cant say about other things but yes the interiors are quite plain and feel cheap compared to others cars in its class.

    Performance: it lags in that segment too. Reading the review I read a bit about pick up as well. The car has poor performance in 1st and 2nd gear
