1994 Toyota Tercel 2dr Coupe


Bought this car in 95 and I got
what I paid for but not much more. I
had no repairs to speak of until 99k
when a connecting rod came loose. I
had taken to one garage in Florida and
two in New York in the previous year
because the oil light came on but it
had oil. They didn't figure it out
till it was too late. Also the
passenger side door and the trunk
leaked after about 50k. The seat has
always been ergonomically the most
torturous, after 45 minutes sitting on
a metal toilet without the seat would
be more comfortable.

Best Features

Gas milage is great.

Worst Features

Design the seats for tall/big Americans. I am 5'8 and 128lbs and the seat is too small for me.
