My summer-only Potenzas had to go, so
I put a set of Michelin X-Ice tires on my '04 MR2 and voila! An unlikely snow machine! Before X-Ice I got stuck in a quarter-inch of snow. With the X-Ice tires installed I went to a level parking lot right after a 6-inch snow, before any plowing had been done. Much to my surprise, and delight, my 2200 pound, less than 6 inch ground clearance car thought it was a snow plow! I could start, stop, back up, and park
all without any problem. Sure, the tires slipped some, after all, it was slick snow. But I doubt that the engine revved over 2000 rpm at any time. Ice performance was just as good. Summer fun, winter fun; you can't beat it!

A very fine car in many ways. Handles perfectly. Quite agile on corners. Driving it is a pleasure. Almost every time I enter or leave a parking lot, somebody tells me what a cool car it is. I have actually managed to carry driver and passenger with two bags of golf clubs behind the seats.

After having my MR2 now for over a
year, I still have that desire to just
find a reason to drive it. It is so
tight and easy to handle.
The sequential transmission is just
plain fun. I have physical problems
with my legs and had given up on
clutches some time ago. Now with the
touch of a finger, I have the same
wonderful sensational feeling of
I have owned several Toyotas and have
always been impressed with the quality
of craftsmanship that is put into each
vehicle that I've owned.
When considering a sports car in this
price range I was certain that nothing
else could touch the dependability
provided in this vehicle.
