1991 Toyota MR2 2dr Coupe

Review

I have wanted an MR2 for as long as I can remember. I love the sleek styling and awesome handling characteristics of one of the best selling mid-engine cars in the world. I am 19 and I bought this car as a project. The previous owner(s) neglected the car and it was in pretty sad shape. The engine spun a rod bearing on the freeway (was to be expected) and then I had an excuse to put a different engine in the car. The original engine was a great, workhorse motor that responded well, got good gas mileage, parts were cheap (these engines are everywhere). It was also a very easy engine to work on. Surprisingly, the car is easy to work on, the mid-engine design do not hinder basic maintenance

Favorite Features

Handling, style, responsiveness, all around a fun car to drive.

Suggested Improvements

The transmission synchros in the 91/92 are weak. It was improved in 93+ models.Many of the problems of the earlier revisions of the car were fixed in the later revisions of the car. The shifting is a bit notchy; can be remedied by upgrading the shifter bushings and using a 75w-90 synthetic gear oil
