Pros

Grin factor

Cons

Luggage space negligible

35

Toyota Mr-2 Spyder — While not blisteringly so, fast enough to be a barrel- load of fun. Incredibly low cost of ownership considering the style of car, particularly for tyres. It does have next to no luggage space, but there's something wrong with you if you are buying this as a load lugger.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Its a nice cruise/daily driver

Cons

power

55

Nice Car — The body is something that most people may not like, but I enjoy it alot. The power is pretty low, but its got nice acceleration. Through corners the lightness and lowness of the car allows it to carve corners at a much higher speed than most other cars.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Quick, good fuel mpg, convertible

Cons

not for grocery getting or hauling families... obviously.

35

Fun Car! — Very good looking car :) Fast, amazing gas mileage and very sturdy. Best handling car I've ever owned prior to my Evo. No matter how hard I drove this car I never got less than 40 mpg. Very dependable car. I actually want to get another one as a daily driver when we move back to the states :)

Pros

great drive, fun, and exciting

Cons

impractical. You are always lonely with only two seats

25

A Great Car With Little Left To Desire For A First Sports Car. — Its fast for what its got, but what is more impressive is how if feels. It is always easy to control and loves to be flogged. its all about the drive and screams to be pushed. little should be fixed.

Great sounding engine, fast, good looking

Cons

scuttle shake, badly fitting rag roof, dashboard not very inspiring

My Lovely Bright Red Mr2 — My first sports car. Only let me down once after not being used for nearly 3 weeks - the battery was flat. She was really fun to drive. Had her for over 3 years and was sorry to see her go but the rag roof never fitted properly and it was time to move on.

02 Mr2 Spyder — Great gas mileage & so much fun to drive! I didnt do much to it - only replaced with a shorter antenna, added Japanese badges..but kept it stock. Only sold it to get a larger car that would seat 4. I would definitely recommend - its one car I wouldnt mind owning again.

great drive

can you handle the stick from your mates for owning one

35

Mr2 Awesome Car — great fun car, most of me mates say that its a girls car - all i can say to that is phht its like a go kart. next best thing to a kit car. Put your foot down and hear the engine roar from behind you. Handles bends like its on rails. However, i wish to purchase a kit car instead, due to being a lil bit more practical
