1995 Toyota Tercel 2dr Coupe


Bought for $6k in 1998 at 50k miles, now running at 130k miles. No repairs at all, not even a tune up, still getting 31 mpg (9 gal every 2 wks on a 20 miles/day fwy commute). Replaced battery once and tires twice. Oil changed every 15k miles. Low-speed acceleration seems good for a small car, but high-speed acceleration only so-so. Good climber, runs I-5 left lane through Grapevine. Recently starting to show its age - eating oil, brakes, last smog barely passed. Too bad they don't make this model anymore - would buy it if they had one.

Best Features

Reasonable purchase price, good reliability, low maintenance cost, makes tight U-turns, easy to parallel park

Worst Features

Ride is rough and noisy, rear seat is a joke, gas tank only 11 gal, need easier access to left headlamp.
