Bang for the Buck!
By Senna21 on
1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo 2dr Coupe
Bought it w/ just over 100k on the
odometer. The only mechanical repairs
I've had was to rebuild the power
steering due to a leak and replace
emergency brake cables. Previous owner
wasn't too mechanically inclined and
I've had to fix some problems due to
his poor mechanic skills. Parts are
expensive and Labor time adds up due to
mid engine design. Luckily I do most of
them myself. That said, this is one of
the best cars I have ever owned!!
Engine is bullet proof and over
engineered to 400hp. Handles better
than a Ferrari 348
with the same acceleration time. Dollar
for dollar this the best
looks and performance you can get.
Styling. Driving with the T-tops off!
140k+ miles and I've gotten 30mpg on
the highway. Lots of performance
upgrades available. Wonderful MR2
owners community (MR2 message board) to
help get information.
Sway bar upgrade and 1993 chin spoiler
to help with high speed instablility.
New E-brake design- the're know to
freeze up. Larger wheels and tires.
