Just bought an MR2 a few months ago! BEST desicion i ever made
By dapersian on
2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I needed a car that could handle the Utah winters but was fun to drive in the summer. I needed a car that would give me great gas with great reliability. Out of all the roadsters i researched, I found the MR2 Spyder to be the choice for me. The engine located right above the rear tires would allow
better traction in the winters. The 1.8 L engine would allow great gas mileage. With the MR2 being build by Toyota, reliability was never a concern.
I am a 5 '5 very stocky guy and i fit in it just fine! If you want a car that is designed for comfort, buy a luxury car. The MR2 was not built for comfort, it was built to rip up canyon roads while looking extraordinarily sexy!!
Gas mileage! averaging 35-40.
Easy drop top. can be done at a stop light.
Handling is amazing. This thing was built for taking corners, at any speed.
The sleek design gets the looks, from everyone.
1st gear red lines around 15 mph.(5 speed man)
Engine that allows higher rpm than 6500.
