What the heck..... it runs

1994 Toyota Tercel DX 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought mine used at 60K and found it quickly going through oil. It started out needing a quart about every 1500 miles and eventually degraded to every 400. On the recommend on my mechanic (he thinks it has a cracked ring) I switched to 20-50w oil returned to 800 miles. It is NOT comfortable, NOT roomy (I'm 6-3) and NOT fun to drive. It is a pig on hills and you can forget about trying to pass anyone on a two-lane road. But it has always gotten me where I need to go and may continue to putt on for who knows how long. It now has 134K miles and I am giving it away to our church.

Favorite Features

It always feels great to get out of it.

Suggested Improvements

How about a little engine power? More head and leg room would be nice.
