1994 Toyota Tercel 2dr Coupe


This car is an IDEAL starter, HS, college, commuter car. It's my starter car and I'm still driving it(my second year). It took some serious punishment with my driving (that includes peeling out, handbrake slides, going over bumps at fairly fast speed, fast cornering), yeah it lacks power but it surely doesn't handle badly(60mph on 35mph offramp). My tercel also was consuming oil at one point, but after timing belt replacement (and oil change with it) it stopped! I managed to blow (well crack) a head gasket in it, but with a $2 bottle of radiator sealant and new spark plugs, it was back up and running. Up to this day it is still running with 90k miles on it, no engine/tranny problems

Best Features

-manual transmission -coupe -suspension (surprisingly it takes bumps better than many cars) and doesnt fly out on turns -ease of repair/maintenance (CHEAPEST TIRES!) -light weight (1950 lbs!!) -35mpg -surprisingly roomy (for a car its size) it fit me, 5 girls and a dog. dont ask :)

Worst Features

-power -headroom -better seat upholstery material (mine's cracking in some places) -passanger seatbelt is funky, first time passangers are usually lost trying to buckle up
