Reliable And Never Let Me Down — This car has been most reliable. I bought it new and outside of routine maintenance and tires it has been a very good car over the years. It needed a battery once or was that twice. Good on gas, 40 to 44HMPG and 28 around town. Needs Snow tires in the winter.

1995 Tercel 1.5l Manual — is a realible car, since i bought it cheap i can use the money to make it look better. since there are so many Tercels in junkyards you can, in case of accients, get replacement parts easily.

Great Bang For Your Buck. — Very, very small car, certainly has it's own quirks. For performance, it's zippy, turns on a dime, stops just as well, and can accelerate faster than you'd expect from it. The overall quality is excellent, but the interior can't take the beating the exterior and mechanical components can. It's not pretty, but isn't ugly, it qualifies as car shaped, maybe even cute. Has almost nothing in terms of cost of ownership, getting 45MPG highway easily, and maintenance is all but nil. It's a fun car to drive, but can be a little inconvenient if you've got long legs, pick one up.

Tercel Sounds Like [steve] Urkle — The Toyota Tercel is a reminder of how I met my significant other. When I assumed title from her, I knew my swingin single days were over. And once I had to add a babyseat in it, I went from "lady killer" to "just kill me". It takes a certain person to own a Toyota Tercel. She was educated, practical, non-materialistic. On the other hand, I had just lost my Dodge Shadow convertible. I was trouble. I was lost. I was burning holes in my pockets. The Tercel was such a simple formula. It was stable, reliable, and unpretentious. All it cared about was getting you there and back. The Tercel slowed my world to an easier pace, far from the road of crash n burn. Despite it being a small car, Tercel waited for me to grow into it. I used to race other random guys my age at the light like James Dean in the Rebel Without a Cause. Tercel took me in a different direction. The tires had me feeling every road noise, pothole, bump in the road of life. I used to have kickin sound systems with CD. Tercel only had radio and tape player. I used to let the top down and let my slicked back hair blow in the wind and race the stars in the sky. Tercel only mussed my hair up when window was down. In my previous cars, I never sat in the backseat. Tercel made room for babyseat. And where I used to flick people off for driving on my roads, I now took it like a man from young punks. Tercel taught me a lesson. And when it was on its last legs after 12 years, I was glad to get rid of it. I donated it to a charity that reconditioned it for disabled people.

Low Power/0-60 time.

Toyota Tercel — It doesn't have enough power, however, it gets amazing gas milage, and runs like a champ. I swear toyotas are pretty much bulletproof, and with the prices of gas going higher and higher, its a great car to have and there are plenty of bolt on parts that can be added to increase performance.

Great Fun Car, Gets Good Mileage. — I do like my tercel alot. I bought it in April with 203k on it. Since then, i had to replace the deck, speakers, tires, brake master cylinder, brake pads, calipers, fluid, and rotors. It is probably because i bought it from a stranger with high mileage. But other than that, i really like the shape and size of the Tercel, and i only paid $975 for mine.
