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.
