2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Quick and easy to move around in city traffic. FUN. Easy to drive. I look forward each day driving to and from work. Did I say it is FUN to drive? I like the looks I get as I drive by. I have been asked more than once..."what is that?" Gas mileage... I own an SUV, but I drive the MR2 Spyder. Even though it is little, it gets me around. Reliable and FUN... I did say it was Fun didn't I. Can't take lots of stuff in it.. a glove box in the front and two glove boxes in the back.. behind the seats. When I have a choice, I take the Spyder. TOYOTA Why did you quit making this car!!! A true sports car, economical, easy to afford, the backing of the good name TOYOTA. Bring it back!!
The fact that it is a convertible, the fact that it is unique, the way it performs, the fact that it is affordable to purchase and to operate... except for the tires... Those were expensive tires!!! Did I mention that it is really FUN to drive? Love this car. Would get 100% if it had more space!
Only thing I can say is that it needs a place to put a brief case other than the passenger seat. a little area behind the seats would have worked great. a place over the tire could have possibly worked. That is one of 2 gripes. no space for a suit case and the fact that TOYOTA has quit making it!
