I have had my '91 Tercel for 5 years
now and I haven't had a problem with

now uses just a little oil. Mechanic
who replaced head gasket at said
pistons showed very little wear and car
had many many miles left; internaly the
engine was remarkably clean. Just a
great little car that's a blast to
drive and take you where you want to go
Reliability and durability are the
hallmarks of this car. It is great to
not have to worry about breaking down

Well I just got this car not too long
ago with 116,000 and had to replace a

but I got hit by a dump truck wheel,:(
so i am going to have to sell it but i
will miss this car soo much.
everything about it was great
