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

Review

Driving this car while naked is the only way to improve the experience. Bought used from meticulous owner (96k miles). Drove back from TN to waves, smiles and honks with the top down of course; got about 33 mpg @ 75-80 mph. Came back with a framed picture, a lamp w/shade, a wheeled suitcase, beach bag and a pink flamingo. Who said there's no storage? (Just delete any passenger.) There's storage behind the seats and you can sneak a few small items in the spare tire well. This car sits lower than a Mini Cooper. A Honda Fit looks like an SUV when you pull alongside. Keep lights on when driving to improve visibility by others. Buy one and look for the winding roads! YEE HA!

Best Features

Easy to drop top, mid engine, low center of gravity, Toyota quality, high MPG, unreal handling, fun factor; waves, honks and smiles from everyone

Worst Features

Rear and/or better speakers, but who's listening to the radio when the top is down? Staggered tire sizes can be a problem when replacement is due (you can't rotate tires front to rear due to difference in sizes (rear: 205, front 195). Invest in proper speed rated tires to more fully enjoy.
