1996 Toyota Paseo 2dr Coupe


Bought this car exactly five years ago with 113,000 miles on (for $2700). Have about 190,000 on now. Only maintenance is one O2 failed at about 117,000 (at engine, the second one failed -after converter- at about 185,000). I got engine check light both times and used obdII code reader. Sensor was about $75. Did brakes and replaced starter & battery. Other then that just oil change. Haven't changed timing belt. Car has automatic and gets 33-34 mpg and runs very smooth. It is developing rust on the undercarriage. Kid was using it for school but know I am using for work. Even though this car is about 13 years old it just seems like it won't die.

Best Features

It's so small I can clean it with a dish rag. People I don't like I have them sit in the back and when I hit bumps their head hits the ceiling. If I lose my tire jack and get a flat I can just pick up the car to put the tire on like a tonka toy.

Worst Features

American car companies should make a car this reliable and fuel efficient.
