TRUE POCKET ROCKET

Vehicle1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo 2dr Coupe
Reviewso i bought my 1st mr2 turbo. 122k miles mint. love it. tight interior, but after awhile you forget about it. interior design is good. seats are comfy. driving position good. really no blind sides. handles great. very quick. sips fuel aslong as your not under boost. much more raw driving experience but not over bearing. not as smooth as the vw corrado but an approach all its own. car sit
low so getting in and out is abit of a pain but a true car guy or gal would not mind. very happy with my purchase.
UPDATE! Still fabulous to drive and own. Can't see myself selling it. I always look forward to driving it. So far besides oil, transmission cables needed adjustment....86 bucks. Starter went. Easy to do it yourself but I had a mechanic do it. With new air filter, synthetic oil change and starter with labor....490. That's it! All this in three to four years of owning it. Looking forward to buying a second one one day.
Update: changed the gear fluid to redline lightweight synthetic high impact. Makes a big difference. Needs a few repairs that are common with these cars. Needs reinforcing plates on the front chassis part where the front sway bars connect. Apparently this is a common issue. Have to repack the axles with grease. The car runs great! Have a ac leak somewhere. Will take care of that in the winter months. Paint is fading but comes up with some buffing. Will repaint in the future. Still a fabulous car! Like with all old cars it's all about maintenence.
