 — 1992 Toyota paseo was my first car. Has a nice sporty look to it. Has a lot of low end torque. It has a rev-happy engine. This car will get you from 0-60 and beyond at a speed nearly like a sports car... Read More
Great Car For The Price! by Damien
 — Bought this car a bit over a year ago for $2800AU, and it hasn't let me down yet. It performs pretty well for a 1.5L, pretty quick off the mark and enough grunt to get you out of sticky stiuations. Th... Read More
Perfect First Car by toritown
 — As a 16 year-old, spending $900 on a car seemed incredibly risky, especially a 20 year-old one (older than me!), with 160,000 miles and a model no one had heard of. Well it turned out to be exactly w... Read More

1992 Toyota Paseo

The Toyota Paseo was introduced for the 1992 model year as a replacement for the Corolla GT-S and SR5. Smaller and cheaper than a Celica, the Paseo was a small, economy car that attempted a sporty look and feel. However, with a tiny engine, the Paseo was no substitute for a Celica. The Paseo was built on the Tercel platform but differed dramatically in looks and had a firmer suspension and larger wheels.

The 1992 Toyota Paseo came in one trim level, a two-door coupe. It had a 1.5-liter, 99 horsepower four-cylinder as its only available engine. A five-speed manual transmission was standard, with the option of a four-speed automatic. Fuel economy was about 26/34 mpg.

Owners of the 1992 Paseo liked the car because it was cute, sporty, and got excellent gas mileage. It also came with a rock-solid Toyota reputation. However, the car was a little too small for many, and many owners said the backseat was for children only.

It doesn't happen all the time, but occasionally the engine stalls when coming to a stop at a stop light or to park. It will happen once or twice a day when the engine is up to operating temperature.
