1991 Toyota Tercel LE 4dr Sedan


Review

What a good car. I've made countless trips all across the USA with no problems. The mechanic said he couldn't believe the car could run as well as it did (which was great) with the original plugs still in place after 100,000 miles. Runs well at 80MPH and 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 economically.


Favorite Features

Reliability and durability are the hallmarks of this car. It is great to not have to worry about breaking down and whether the car will perform or not. Always consistent!


Suggested Improvements

Make the engine components easier to reach and access, especially the water pump and the timing belt.

1991 Toyota Tercel DX 4dr Sedan


Review

This little car has much more power than you thought. You can drive it at 80mph without any problem. The car looks nice and it is very reliable. The only problems it has are there's a little engine oil leak on it (one quart every 1000miles) and sometimes you need to shake the transmission before starting the car. These problems are normal for a 12 years old car.

Economy and reliable

Review

This is my first car and I've had no problems with it. I've had to have the front end cv joints replaced, but that's not uncommon on a front wheel drive car. i love every minute of this beast. It's helped out in so many occasions. I can't complain one bit about it. Though it's small, it's not meant to be a big family sedan. A great car to learn on and know that you'll have great reliability and won't put much money into it other than regular work. A+


Favorite Features

Peppyness, control, convience, size, and audio system. for a person who doesn't need a big system or speakers, they work great for being stock.


Suggested Improvements

none, they dont' make them anymore:)

Review

I have had my '91 Tercel for 5 years now and I haven't had a problem with it besides the AC and a minor oil leak. It's a great car, expecially for a first time driver... mine has 104K miles on it and is still running great.
