Review

These cars are excellent. The performance is great, the handling is even better, and you'll never get more looks from people with another car. One thing I do need to warn you about is the pre-catalytic converters for pre- 02's. They are known to go bad and will ruin the engine. The easiest remedy is to simply gut the pre-cats. Its most likely illegal to do but techincally wouldn't make the car fail emissions. It only takes away its LEV rating. I'd much rather lose that than my engine. Another route is to have an engine from 2002 up put in there as they don't seem to be affected. (disclaimer, I assume no liabilty if you gut the pre-cats. its easy to do but requires a bit of work.)

My Spyder turns heads everywhere I go. It is so fun to drive and it handles like a go kart on rails. I have had many sports cars in the past but this one is my favorite.

My every day commute car, lots of fun to drive. Very dependable, only problem is no storage room and not easy to carry a bicycle. I made a custom bike rack for 2 that works GREAT adn attaches to the rear transport tie downs (covered by plugs on the rear grill. Drives like it is on rails!

Review

Corners, as they say, as if on rails. Pleasantly surprised with the 39 MPG on the highway,(keeping under 65 MPH). Never had the opportunity to open it up, would love to see what it will do. Top easy to put up and down. Limitation is cargo space. Can fit enough for a weekend trip behind seat, but not much more. Disappointed that cannot get cruise control on my manual model nor get a trailer hitch to carry my bicycle rack. Other than that, love the car! Bud

The MR2 has stopped my "must have a new car every 2yr itch!" It handles well, is excellent on gas and looks fabulous. Very limited cargo and passenger space will not limit the amount of time you will want to drive your Spyder, it's never enough. If you want to have a least one person a day stop and ask "what kind of car is that?!", this is the car for you! With all that said, don't buy one because current owners enjoy the uniqueness of the MR2 Spyder!

Review

This is a FUN car to drive, provided you do not have to take much w/ you! The only problem I have had is w/ the "check engine" light. It has been back to Toyota dealer some 18 times for this. Finally, Toyota replaced the computer & hopefully this will stop that pesky light. Great in the rain but terrible on ice & in the snow!

FredWirt's review is way off the mark. As a matter of fact, I doubt he owns one (Cruise wasn't even available on the 2000! If he has it, it is aftermarket.) His problems are far out of the ordinary. Get the real story on the Spyder at www.spyderchat.com and ask the enthusiasts there. As for the guy with the 10K-15K tires...okay...sure. You can replace your tires with some excellent ones for less than $400 and pocket the difference between that and the extra $10-12K on the S2000. Don't know what kind of tires you had, but that's no reason to rate the car a 2-3 overall! :)

Review

This is my favorite car I've ever owned!!! It's HOT looking, nimble & quick! I search for curvy roads! I drove BMW Z4 & 330, Z28 & Vett, 911 & Boxster. Give me 2 or 3 MR-2's any day for the same $$$ of any of them! It maintains 80mph up 6% grades w/ no down-shifting!!! Wouldn't mind more storage, but not if it changes anything about the car. Chased a 911 thru curves @ high-speed w/ no problmes! Everyone is shocked when they find out it is as inexpensive as it is. If Porsche was still building the 914, this is what it would look like! AWSOME CAR!!!
