1997 Toyota Paseo Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

I am writing about this car because I am ready to buy a new one. My boyfriend is battling me on this because he says its hard to come buy a good car and he is true. I purchased this car when it was seven years old and it has never failed me. This car has taken me from florida to los angeles and back with all of my worldly possesions and my dog. I highly reccommend this car.Don't let the age fool you - its sweeter now than ever. When my friends are paying $40 to fill their gas tanks I am only paying $20.


Best Features

The easy maintenance. And the way she turns corners and the push she has.


Worst Features

This car has seats in the back but it sits more like a two seater. Great for children, but not full side adults. I would say it would almost be dangerous to have passengers in the back seat because their heads touch the glass.

Review

I bought my Toyota Paseo (a.k.a
Veronica)at age 16. It has become my
everything. This car has handling that
you could not imagine. I've pushed
this car to the redline time and time
again and it wont fail me. This car
has been reliable and will continue to
be reliable. The Paseo is one of the
most under rated cars out there and
should be given much more credit. It's
acceleration is more than acceptable
for a car that only puts out 93 horses
and 100 pounds of torque. I actually
own a 1998 Paseo and i expect to keep
this car for the rest of my life. This
car will stop at nothing.


Best Features

Handling, Sporty Feel, Interior look. Gas Mileage and shifting ability.


Worst Features

For Toyota to bring back the Paseo.

Review

I bought my paseo new. It was the first
car I ever purchased on my own. It's
small but at the time (I was 21) it was
just what I wanted. I love the way it
handles and takes a corner. In six
years I have never had a mechanical
problem. Most reviews will say an adult
cannot ride in the back but I am here
to tell you my friends have done it
many times. Of course the older we get
the less we want to! :) I think this
is a great car for a highschool/college
student.


Best Features

Handling/cornering ability. Bucket seats. Interior upholstry. Manual transmission.

Review

I've owned my Toyota Paseo since new.
It's essentially a sporty Toyota
Tercel. It's fun to drive, reliable,
has great fuel economy, and is an all
around great commuter car.


Best Features

Fun to drive and very reliable


Worst Features

Cup holder placement, needs better seat support, more leg/head room.
