Air filter housing has several screws--need flexible tools to reach few of them. Then it is a simple wasp. Be careful--not to drop the screws--you need them to close the housing upon completion.

Now 12500 miles since new. Great drive train with great acceleration and braking.
Service A done to Mobil One at 1/2 of dealer's cost. Easy maintenance! Summer tires are great, but trade-off is thread wear--may last another 8K. Use Winter tires/rims--great for the past 2 stormy winters in Northeast.

53000 since brand new. Best dealership experience with recall to fix minor problems. Earlier than usual brake pad replacement--4 wheel drive! Easy parts replacement. Looking forward for long term ownership. Replaced 2 front strut due to leak @$700. Great car with recent long trip to Florida and back. Used Lucas engine lube--great product to clean engine--smooth run!

92000 miles now since new. Poor dealership service for Check Engine Light--on--replaced Air Flow Sensor--solved problem @ own cost of $300. Parts more expensive than other imports. No problem for last 40K. Looking for long term ownership for another 50-60 thousands miles.

Great car since new--now 95000. Replaced only Air Flow sensor at reasonable cost (dealer) $250 @ 40K and 90K. Timing belt changed @86K for $600 at Dealer special--noticeable improvement drivetrain performance. Maintenance done in local shops with common Toyota parts. Looking forward to keep car for another 50 thousands miles. Easy tire replacement via TireRack.
