There really is nothing better!

1996 Toyota Tercel DX 4dr Sedan


My father purchased this car for less than $2000 about 4 years ago from a co-worker, intending to let me drive it while working towards getting my license. It was at 106,000k at the time, and is now at 160,000k. I have never known a better car. It started without any problems when the temperature was -30, runs smoothly and I can trust it to get me from A to B and then some(!) without ever breaking down. Gas mileage averages 38 mpg. This is my first car, and will be my last as well. I intend to keep it until it literally rusts and falls to pieces.

Best Features

Small car, easy to maneuver, low maintenance and incredibly reliable.

Worst Features

Nothing, except I think there should be more cars like this on the road.
