I have a 2005 LE and was considering the 2009, had the opportunity to rent one for a few days (recommend it if you can before you buy a car), however the interior, what happened?  It looks like Toyota took out what made a Toyota and replaced it with a cheap Chevy-like plastic interior.  I think the reviewers were too kind.  In the 2003-2008's you had a lexus-like interior with cushion covered door handles, and durable plastic in the right places, now it feels like a car that's built to last 2 years, just look at the knobs on the radio controls and you'll see what I mean.

I will say to be fair, that the ride is better executed and handling is top notch, mechanically this car excels in every way.

But I'm the kind of person that wants a quality cabin, dealing in LA traffic it's where I spend most of my time, just very disappointed in Toyota on this one.
