For the money, you're getting a decent car for the broke-ass high school or college kid. Something that companies like BMW can't compete with and probably don't want to. They're brand new cars with warranties. They're in NO WAY AT ALL FAST/QUICK. They are the average Japanese import that look a little better then the normal Honduh. Fully loaded you'll only pay 17k for one of these cars. For a base model BMW you'll pay no less then 30k+.
I personally hate the cars. The XB and XA or whatever are uglier then Rosie O'Donnell in a bikini. The TC, while it looks decent, is just a car which ripped off every design from another company. I have to hang it to Toyota though on the TC. They produced a car which every ricer in America strives to own. Congratulation's.
