I bought this car in summer of 2000 as
my first car (thanks to parents) and
other than regular maintenance have not
put a penny into it. It doesnt have
the power i like, but it handles nice,
is comfortable in my multiple hour
drives and is always dependable. Would
definetly buy another toyota.
A hand-me-down. Engine rebuilt at
140000, and runs like a kitten. Rest of
car is just starting to get old. Damn
fine car for 1991, but is starting to
show it's age in terms of interior
acoutrements. Engine performance is
excellent and the V6 puts a smile on my
face during passing.
Been told by the dealership that the
trannys have problems around 150K, but
ours is still holding in there. First
generation ABS also leaves a lot to be
desired. Interior panels have become
very brittle and are breaking off by
If you see one and it's in decent
condition, I would recommend this car
despite a couple gripes.
Excellent trouble free car, though
being a 4 cylinder vehicle, it does not
seem to have the pickup power one would
want, especially in city driving. The
vehicle has also been excellent when
driving on snow and ice-covered roads.
Layout of the car is excellent,
finishes are great. No complaint from
this driver after 11 years. Expected
to keep the car forever, but had to
relocate outside the country. Great car
and a tribute to Toyota's engineering
and attention to detail.
