1997 Toyota Tercel CE 2dr Coupe


i have not owned my tercel that long. but i bought mine after having known others that used theirs for years with no problems. Overall average of about 32mpg. probably about 37mpg on the highway. no problems with the car, the old owner said the same. I got it with lower than average miles, about 72000. The design is very simple, so things like installing a stereo or mechanical work is easy to do yourself. Not much power but since the car is light it doesn't need it, so it does get peppy on the highway, but it does build speed very slowly on hills. My a/c is ice cold. A great little car, I love it.

Best Features

Simple design, great on gas, a/c is ice cold.

Worst Features

Well the car is not around anymore and even if it was I would still like it the way it is. But if I could change something I would make the frame less flimsy, 4 speed automatic would be nice.
