Reliable & good mpg
By mike on
1996 Toyota Paseo 2dr Coupe
Bought with 110,000 miles on and now have 175,000. Still getting 31-34 mpg. (has AT) only maintenance have done is replaced bad 02 sensor a couple years ago, oil change, drained at fluid but didn't replace filter, replaced front brakes and rotor. Recently changed spark plugs and air filter idles very smooth. Not a car for a larger person. But if you're under 5'10" and 180#s, it's great.
Gas mileage and reliability
Alloy wheels get this black residue which isn't from brake pads.
