1991 Toyota Tercel Coupe 2dr Coupe


Review

I had a great experience owning a slightly used 1991 toyota tercel. Never a problem with it it just keep on rolling down the freeway. at 143,000 miles I became skittish and traded in for an American model boy was that a mistake. I wish I still owned it it was a great commuter with 32 mpg for 5 years.


Best Features

engine reliability on base model. $ spped manual


Worst Features

Five speed manual on DX. AC should on base models. better paint seems toyotas paint didn't hold up well in the Midwest winter.

Review

I'm an owner of a Cadillac Escalade. The reason I purchased the Tercel was to reduce the mileage on my Cadillac. This vehicle is extremely reliable. It is fun to drive and with over 123K miles I still get over 31mpg. It doesn't get any better than this. This car was built to run and boy does it run. Great second, third or any number you choose as an additional car. If you can get one, buy one.

Review

This is a dependable vehicle that I used alternately with my teenagers (3 learned how to drive on this buggy). It's just now beginning to use oil with 145,000 miles on it. 30 mpg in town and 40+ on the road. No mechanical problems.

Review

bought new in 91. I learned to drive a stick shift with it. My wife learned on it 5 years later. At 140,000 I replaced the clutch. At 170,000 it runs perfect.

Review

For a car that was so cheap new, it has been awfuly good. Not once have I been to the mechanic for unscheduled maintenance. BUT- it does get very musty and gross in wet weather, at 110000 miles after being taken care of excellently, it is definitely falling apart. But i cannot complain that i have never spent a cent fixing the car i paid under $7k for 11 years ago.


Best Features

Reliability


Worst Features

It is definitely a cheap car- nothing reaks with quality- typical of the class
