1996 Toyota Tercel 2dr Coupe


I owned this car when it was 80k, and now it is 145k. Never had any problem, and I feel the accelaration is alright since mine is a 4-speed manual, and actually it is quicker than 80% of those none-sports beside you if you push ot harder. The original tire is quite thin, so I change the tires and I think that's a must. I am well prepared to see one day this car dies but that didn't happen, and now this car's engine still powerful and only little bit noise coming from the engine. I think it can still run 20000 without problem.So I cannot wait to get another new car from toyota (a Scion tc) but I will keep it as well.The gas mileage is now around 35 (highway, local combined), and it used to be 40.
