1994 Toyota Tercel 2dr Coupe


This car is an IDEAL starter, HS,
college, commuter car. It's my starter
car and I'm still driving it(my second
year). It took some serious punishment
with my driving (that includes peeling
out, handbrake slides, going over bumps
at fairly fast speed, fast cornering),
yeah it lacks power but it surely
doesn't handle badly(60mph on 35mph

My tercel also was consuming oil at one
point, but after timing belt replacement
(and oil change with it) it stopped!

I managed to blow (well crack) a head
gasket in it, but with a $2 bottle of
radiator sealant and new spark plugs, it
was back up and running. Up to this day
it is still running with 90k miles on
it, no engine/tranny problems

Best Features

-manual transmission -coupe -suspension (surprisingly it takes bumps better than many cars) and doesnt fly out on turns -ease of repair/maintenance (CHEAPEST TIRES!) -light weight (1950 lbs!!) -35mpg -surprisingly roomy (for a car its size) it fit me, 5 girls and a dog. dont ask :)

Worst Features

-power -headroom -better seat upholstery material (mine's cracking in some places) -passanger seatbelt is funky, first time passangers are usually lost trying to buckle up
