1997 Toyota Tercel Limited Edition 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought this car used in 2008, and it has been outstanding. It was driven from Florida to San Antonio, where I bought it and then driven back to FT. Benning, GA. I travel a lot and have already put 24,000 miles on it. Besides having excellent gas mileage it is very durable and dependable. I hit a deer doing 45 mph and still drove the car home without any damage to the engine. I only had to replace the hood and driver's side headlight. I have no doubt that this car would make a long trip at any given time. Toyotas have always been good products.

Review

An exceptional car with amazing performance and reliability. The controls are easy to use.


Best Features

Peppy, and handles wonderfully. Few problems until about 9 years and 80,000 miles of usage in city driving.


Worst Features

The back seat is too small for average sized American adults.

Review

I thinkt hat if a car can last through a highschoolers driving performance, thenit must be a good car. The only problems I have had with this car is that it can be a bit noisy when it idles. Otherwise, it drives quite well/comfortably (for what it is) and especially for the price. I woudl suggest a car like this for any new driver!

Review

Great car. Nothing fancy - but reliable and inexpensive to maintain. Not for a taller or larger person - but great for a first or second car.


Best Features

Inexpensive to maintain!


Worst Features

better material for interior - mine is tacky. also - make the transmission 4 or 5 speed.
