This is a fun, reliable, economical car. It has good performance, excellent braking, handling and outstanding Toyota reliability. I love this car and am planning to keep it forever :) This is my fun car and I keep it in the garage and don't drive it when the weather is bad. It is my baby and I keep it in great shape. A little red convertible.

Bought my convertible a little over 2 years ago, and it's needed nothing but regular routine maintenance (previous owner took great care of it - front struts, axles, tie rods, brakes were replaced before I bought it, and I don't drive it all that far in daily driving). The convertible is perfect for east Tennessee (south of Knoxville) as I can drop the top about 10 months out of 12. :) The only thing I'm looking at as being a major $$$ project is having the top either repaired or replaced - the car was "converted" in May of '92, and it's the original top... there are a couple of seams where the threads are starting to fray, but no leaks yet, thankfully. Only regret is the automatic tranny.

very reliable, only unexpected probelme
was alternator failure at about 75k.
some quirky problems, i.e. piston that
operates roof sprung a leak. Mostly
minor or midde level routine maintenace
(replace wheel bearings, muffler, ect)
have 196k on car and will drive it till
it dies. Take care of car and it takes
care of you. Annoying problem is vinyl
roof which looses clarity and shape
creates real blind spots. PS radio
lights failed. to expensive to figure
