Ode to My Tercel
By billjriv on


1996 Toyota Tercel 2dr Coupe


You go down in history as one of the best cars ever invented. I love my Tercel and she has been through everything with me through thick and thin. Keeps going and going. I wish they'd bring back the Tercel like the old wagons with 4wd. You could camp in them, haul stuff around they were the perfect car, even for a family. This 96 model is great, it is a great cheap car with the gas mileage similar to a Prius for $20000 less.

Best Features

Gas mileage, I get about 37-44 MPG, reliability.

Worst Features

Could have made the exterior metal out of something a little thicker but that would add to weight and what can you expect for something so cheap, it's already a Cadillac compared to most of the big fat gas hogs on the road now.
