2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder Convertible 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I have owned this car only for a short period but it is fantastic. I have owned and driven many cars in my time but this has quckly stolen my heart. I love this little car. It drive like every boys childhood dream of owning a Hotwheels, only this is the adult version. This car is not practicle as you might be able to carry a gallon of milk. It is not a smoth riding car and it can be noisy with the top up. It has one job and that is to put a smile on your face, and that it does everytime you drive it. My 1st day getting it on the hwy I took a cloverleaf at speeds that would have put another car in the ditch and I didnt even know it. But I had the biggest S(&T eating grin on my face.

Review

This car is fun to drive, it handles superbly, and people cannot help but comment on its excellent looks. I would not recommend it for a commuter car because it has limited space and it has a stiff ride. It is a shame that Toyota no longer produces this vehicle but I am glad that they did not market it heavily either. You don't see them at every stop light. You cannot help but smile while driving this car on a beautiful day.


Best Features

Handling, fuel mileage, styling.


Worst Features

I didn't purchase it for its cargo space, but a little more room would have been nice.

Review

The MR2 will never appeal to soccer moms, farmers, or anyone who prioritizes "practicality" over fun; however, if you want a reliable, economical, relatively rare, good-looking, and super fun way of getting from point "A" to "B" the MR2 can not be beat.


Best Features

agility, acceleration, engine sound


Worst Features

dump the cup holder in center console

Review

If you love to drive and don't want to shell out for a Porsche, this is your car. It handles like it's on rails. So much so that it takes a little time to get used to it if you're not accustomed to high performance mid-engine coupes. I've known a couple of people who have these just to take to the track as a sprint car. They handle just that well.


Best Features

Super easy to put top up/down - you can do it one-handed at a stop light. Near perfectly balanced center of gravity. SMT tranny is an outstanding value. Basically unavailable in any other sports car in this price range.


Worst Features

The wind guard behind the seats cannot be folded up/down with the seats fully reclined. Probably too small if you're over 6' tall. I wish Toyota offered the OEM supercharger they had for earlier models. No real way to boost performance without going off the reservation.

Review

Love my car. With only 9,000 miles on it, it went under an 18 wheeler at 70 mph. If it weren't for the great handling ability and rear wheel drive, I wouldn't be here today. I was able to pull the car out at 70 mph, with the front passengers wheel torn off!! The performance and handling of the MR2 in a situation like ths is outstanding. Over $10,000 later, and 2 months, this car looks and runs better than new. Toyota should be proud of making such a safe and realiable MR2 Spider!! Thank you.


Best Features

The handling ability of the MR2 is excellent.


Worst Features

Standard cruise control, I had an add-on installed.
