Save Your $ And Buy A Toyota Or Honda — I find it sometimes unnecessarily complicated for service of some of the typical home mechanical repairs. Oil changes are easy enough, changing the passenger side headlight is a 1/2 day adventure since so many pieces of the airbox behind it must be removed. It is the 1.6 liter 1996 with auto trans not quick off the line at all I find it could not even get out of its own way. Build quality as I mentioned as of service the things that break are things you never expect to-window cranks, heater control buttons that fall off. Appearance, looks like a Honda or any small mid '90's car. I expected better milage, my Corolla gives me 48mpg HWY and 28 CTY and this is about 38 HWY and 25 CTY. Fun Factor - ZERO. Parts are hard to come by. If I had to do over I would have kept my old Tercel.

Pros

cheap spares, easy on the wallet, smooth engine

Cons

flimsy build

35

Very Reliable — excellent for daily commuting, and good for short distances, good performance for the price, and weighs only 950 odd kilos. very easy to drive, easy on the money, interiors are boring, quality of plastics are bad, and switches are not good enough
