2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great car but understand that it is not meant to be driven daily. Just getting stuff home from a food store is an adventure. Lordy, though, the adventure is incredible once you get out on roads with lots of curves. An amazing car. Great to look at, performance is fantasic. Body put together well, interior has some issues, things tended to just fall apart. Car has gotten louder in the interior as it has aged. But have owned lots of two seaters going back to MGs andTRs and it is an amazing car. Buy one!!


Suggested Improvements

Interior needs higher quality on dash. Seat fabric needs to be of a higher quality, tends to show wear.

2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Best/most fun car, I've ever owned. Hard to imagine how handling could be any better. Reasonably comfortable, with a decent amount of room. Styling is great, always gets noticed.


Favorite Features

What's not to like?


Suggested Improvements

Could use a litle more cargo capacity, but since it's no longer in production, improvements are not in the cards.

Review

I have had my MR2 for almost 4 years and have loved every minute of it! There are always looks to see what I'm driving. If you love lots of attention, you must drive this car!


Favorite Features

Style, ease of parking, lots of attention! Fun, Fun, Fun!


Suggested Improvements

Automatic top would be nice! The storage is an issue but you can buy those expandable bags that work just fine behind each seat!! Great for a short road trip!

Review

Wasn't looking to buy a car until I drove this one. Had 34K and runs like it is new. This is a great little car. Bought a luggage rack for traveling. I looked at the 03, 04 and 05 on the net and I like the 02 the best. Great car to get past that mid-life crisis. BTW, the wife likes it too. I would recommend this car to anyone.


Favorite Features

Handling, styling, gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Storage - there is none

Review

Toyota makes the best automobiles in the world, dollar for dollar. This is no exception. A porsche it is not, but then again it is less than half the price of a Boxster, a quarter the price of a Carrera, and none of the enormous maintenance expense. I have placed 25K on the car, the first maintenance at the dealer, 7500 miles, cost me $86.00. The 15K service was $168.00. How can you beat that in a well made, fun, convertible??? You can't!!!


Favorite Features

a fun, reliable, inexpensive car to own.


Suggested Improvements

next time, a trunk of some sort!
