I bought a Paseo from my girlfriends dad back when I was 16, I'm 20 now and still drive the car everyday. as it sits right now there is just a little over 240,000 miles on the original car! all I've done is regular maintenance, timing belt, water pump, things like that. Sofar I havent had any major issues and hope it stays that way. I change the oil every 3000 miles and in between changes I have to add about a quart of oil, not much for how many miles are on the car. there isnt anything special about the car, but it has always been there and never let me down and I'll keep it until it lets go, I've owned 3 other cars in the time i've had the paseo and still keep this one around.
reliability, easy to work on.
Great design for a economy car in 95, but the cupholders are a joke
There's nothing really special about this car other than a few things it really has going for it. It's a great commuter car for students, 2dr, great fuel economy, sporty interior, dirt cheap, Toyota reliability. I would go with this over buying a more expensive car. Saving money > turning heads.
Interior, fuel economy, reliability
Visibility isn't that great, especially if you're tall. I'm a little over 6'1" so I'm a bit too big for the car and can't see out of it too well.
This car has been a lot of fun to drive. I drove it a lot at one time and it never broke down on me or did anything to make me think that it would of. At first, I wasn't really for sure about buying a 1995 but it was cute and I needed a car and no way did I want any loans. But this car surprised me with its performance, it never gave me any problems but then again I took very good care of it. This car has come through a lot more than I would have expected it to be. I give it a very high rating.
I owned the toyota Paseo for about 2
years now, and it is no longer in my
possession, because of continues break
downs I gave up on the paseo, I bought
it used in college. The paseo runs to
low to the ground especially a 4
cylinder car in New York will not last
because of steep pot holes
Great sound, air condition and strong
Make the paseo a little hire up off the
street.Toyota paseo's are not worth
more than 1,000 if it's used
I have always wanted to own one of these cars. I almost bought one recently but I was approved for a new mazda 2002 protege(can't pass that up!). This is one of the funnest cars I've ever driven. I've had two friends who have had their's for years and this little thing gets going! Dont let the small numbers fool you (93 Hp, 100fp torque). Small cars don't need as much power to move! MPG is around 35 on a manual. Reliability is insane as it's a sporty tercel.
I love the look of this cute little car. The seats are comfortable, and even though it's small, there's enough room inside for driver and main passenger. It's almost like the interior kind of hugs you while you drive. Corners unbelievably:)
The only thing I can suggest for this car is better visibility. The newer 96-97 models are a bit better on that however.
