Worth the investment?
By Desert Don on
2001 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I've owned my Spyder now for better
than 3 years. It's used as a fair
weather driver exclusively. For it's
design as an "inexpensive sports car"
it's a winner. Don't buy this one
expecting to use it for much more than
FUN. Luggage/Storage is a joke.
Although it's a very light vehicle, I
find myself looking for just one more
gear (5 isn't quite enough) and a bit
more power. Simply a FUN TOY if your
in the market for one. Bottom line,
drive this one before you spend the
added $$ for anything else!
A limited production line and a really
decent resale value. No nonsense
sports car feel/design. Aftermarket
support is decent but pricey. Top down
driving is the only way to go.
MORE! Horesepower and transmission!
Improve these and the added weight
won't be an issue. Extra options would
be nice, ie. removable hard top,
cruise control, rim/tire combos, etc..
Use the same size wheels/tires all the
