We bought this car for my teenage son
for his first car with 217K miles on
it. The lady we bought it from bought
it new and put three teenage girls
through it as their first car. She had
all of the maintenace records and cried
when we drove away. In the last year
I've put on brakes, struts, stabalizer
links, etc. Nothing major and it just
keeps on ticking.
Great mileage, decent ride and
handling, good power. I just love the
reliability. GM and Ford should kidnap
Toyota engineers before it's too late.
Will be topping 275k miles this month.
Still rides smooth and soft and a
comfy. struts is an issue. scared to
buy anything else since I am so used to
the reliability factor and good ride.
no major issues except for regular
Bought the car new,it is a 4 cyl.
Changed the oil every 3000 miles,
timing belt every 100k and usual
maintenance items. Still has the
original engine, trans, etc. Has
always been reliable, passed this to my
son. Wife has a 96 with 110k, again no
problems. Recently bought a 2000, hope
to get 200k+ miles from this one.
This was my second car. My first car
was a Renault Alliance, I used that
while I was going to school. I
purchased this car 4 months out of
nursing school and it was, without a
doubt the best 20g's I spent. I
haven't put a lot of miles on it; I
just turned over 100,000, but it has
run great for me and I am afraid to
trade it in for fear of getting a less
reliable car! This car has grow with
me, it was sporty enough for a single
gal (I have the moon roof and I got the
detail package), then a married gal and
now a Mom. It has transitioned nicely
with my personal life. It sure isn't
as clean and it was when I didn't have
any little ones!!!
I especially love my moon roof! It also
has a HUGH trunk.
