First New Car — This is one of the few cars I ever bought new. It was white and that was a mistake. In the eighties toyota was using an enamel white paint that was not clear coated. This incited rust in the strangest of places. We bought this car and immediately went on vacation with it. We put alot of kms on this car too.

Pros: Great dependable car

Cons: rusting paint

My First Car, And I'm Still In Love With It — this car is like a best friend. sometimes its a bit touchy, you never know if it will start on the first try in the morning :) but after years, and driving back and forth between boston and seattle, i can still count on it. right now i have to make a major repair and everyone keeps telling me to sell it and buy a newer car, but for me its worth more to spend the extra cash to fix it then get something else. that's love.

Bought For $200 Getting Great Gas Mileage. — I stumbled across this great deal just as gas prices topped $3/gal. I've invested in new-budget tires-and front right side 1/2shaft. other than water pump periodic noise-just put in 5 gal of gas and go.

Miles Driven per Year:15,000

Pros: gas mileage, fun to drive stick shift

Cons: heat is uneven and windows fog easily in poor weather. Need the combo switch

'88 Fx-16 Gts Way To Much Fun In An Ordinary Looking Auto. — I've had mine a couple of years and think out of the 100 or so cars that I've had this might be the most fun of all. If I had known what kind of car this was in 1988 I would have bought a one new. Power to weight ratio is good. Engine is very flexible with a usable power curve. Fuel economy is good. Mine is a five speed that is gobs of fun. The only thing it does not have that I wish it did is a factory sunroof. It would then truly be the ultimate driving machine. I have had MGBs, Midgets, a '67 GTO convertible and currently have an older 450sl convertible. I must say that my FX rivals them all for driving fun.

If You Have A Passion For Performance And Speed Then, This Is The Car For You!! — Performance wise This car does not disappoint, the accelerator responds to a feather light touch. Due to age and wear and tear the rattles are minimal. Not a spek of rust on the body work. Interior is completely original. Absolutely economical and light on fuel. Fun factor= SPEED:D

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: "NEED FOR SPEED"

Cons: NOT BRAVE ENOUGH!!
