1995 Toyota Tercel 2dr Coupe


I had a 1993 two door coupe that I
stupidly sold. I put nearly 200K on it
and never replaced anything but tires,
brakes and a battery. Great little car.
Recently I replaced it with a 1995 and
am really pleased. The 1995 has much
more pick-up (which makes it fun to
drive - like a little go-cart) and
better mileage. On the open road I can
get up to 43 miles per gallon. We have
driven this little car everywhere, to
Vegas and back twice and to Phoenix
twice and San Fransisco. It has over
173K on it and passed a smog with ease.
I am figuring I will have this car for
the next 10 years.

Best Features

My car has a "rag-top" on it. I think this was added after market. It is basically as if they cut off the roof and replaced it with a convertible top that folds back with the touch of a button. Also, it handles very well and is smooth even at high speeds.

Worst Features

I am very upset that Toyota has stopped making this model. My suggestion would be that they start again. I parked next to an Echo the other day and it is at least 6-10" taller than my Tercel. It looks clumsy and boxy and from what I understand lacks the same pick-up.
