A Great Deal
By jimharding on
1997 Toyota Tercel CE 2dr Coupe
Bought new. Have put 126K commuting
miles on it. Have not put anything but
basic maintenance into it. With the 5
speed it actually is a little peppy but
not much passing power. Gets great
mileage, about 38-40 mpg. Small back
seat so its pretty uncomfortable for
passengers. Small trunk space too.
Overall, a good bargain for the price
(new in '96 was $11,600).
Gas mileage. Reliability.
Could be bigger, but if you want
bigger, get a Corolla or Camry.
