Default Toyota rukus

Has anyone had experience with one of these.
I know it's basically a square camry but what are they like.
I want a practical s/wagon don't want a rav4 so this fits the bill.

My brother in law has one, easily one of the ugliest cars i have ever seen. In saying that they have never had any trouble with it.

I have a ZH Outlander and it's been trouble free and a great wagon

My mum has one and has had it since new, people reckon they are ugly, i love it. If she didnt have one id buy one purely to put my bike in. It has been trouble free since new with not one issue apart from a recall.
They have lots of space aswell.

Mechanically they're basically a Corolla so you can guarantee they'll be reliable. Toyota tried to sell it here as a youth vehicle but instead it proved more popular with the elderly.

If you can get over the looks, they're fine. As noted above about the running gear - whitegoods reliability.

A mate had the Nissan Cube for a while (equivalent concept). He regrets selling it, as it was just so useful.
