I have owned many vehicles in my 31 years. Vans, trucks, Suv's and even Motorcycles. This 2 door gas annihilator has been the best, most reliable car I have ever had the pleasure to own. With ridiculous gas prices, my wife drives 45 miles round trip daily on just over 1 gallon of fuel. The best fuel economy we have tracked was 42 miles to the highway gallon. This is the 2 door automatic with air. We were able to achieve this unheard of mileage in the spring time when A/C is not neccesary. Time to sell our plymouth Neon and get another one of these awesome Toyota's. BOTTOM LINE I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS VEHICLE. We're over 200,000 and climbing, with NO problems at all. Change your tming belts!!
This is a dependable vehicle that I used alternately with my teenagers (3 learned how to drive on this buggy). It's just now beginning to use oil with 145,000 miles on it. 30 mpg in town and 40+ on the road. No mechanical problems.
I'm an owner of a Cadillac Escalade. The reason I purchased the Tercel was to reduce the mileage on my Cadillac. This vehicle is extremely reliable. It is fun to drive and with over 123K miles I still get over 31mpg. It doesn't get any better than this. This car was built to run and boy does it run. Great second, third or any number you choose as an additional car. If you can get one, buy one.
