Bought this car of last year so I can go back and fourth to school. I love this car. It was great on gas, and fun to drive. When I bought it, the previous owner had already painted it red and silver (red, the original color, on top, and silver on the bottom). It was an automatic.

I had a great experience owning a slightly used 1991 toyota tercel.

I wish I still owned it it was a great commuter with 32 mpg for 5 years.

I did think Toyotas were good cars, but now I am not really sure. I paid $1400 and it could cost me $1000 to fix, I just got the brakes fixed a couple days ago. Since this is the only car my daughter and I own, and we don't live close to my school or my work, not to mention our bus system is lacking quite a bit, it has been a difficult last few days!
Reliability and retained value are important. I see neither in the Saturn. My wife bought a Tercel new in 1991 and we just got rid of it last month with 72K on the odo and only because small, expens...
I've been reading a few previous posts--about the non-air. My previous car had no ac (a 1991 Toytota Tercel named Henry, whom I just sold) and it was a horrible problem when I was trying to sell it. E...
