1994 Toyota Tercel DX 2dr Coupe

Review

Bought at 43K and was DOA at 128K (it still runs but burns oil). The problem started as a bit of blue smoke on startup and it lost oil slowly (1/4 quart a week). In the space of a week it got much worse. My mechanic says that 1987-94 Tercel have this problem: piston ring/seals go, the only solution is a new engine. The 95 is a great car he says, it has a different engine. Don't expect this toyota to make 200K. Go for the 95, this 94 model is now too old to be reliable.
