I'm also fine with the hp rating of the engine, but I would like the car to have a more standard Toyota engine simply because I think the car would be capable of lasting decades with very little repair and standard maintenance. The Subaru boxer may turn out to be as good, but their traditional head gasket issues and my learning that the service manual calls for lifting the engine to change the spark plugs is a little disconcerting.
Still, I've been waiting to test drive one. My local Toyota dealer received four recently, but they are all automatics. That's just tragic.
