    Amazing Ride. — Fast great little car. Handles great. Lots of room. Comes with a factory premium sound system. Fast up hills. Easy on the eyes. Paid £650 for him. Great for these little English roads. Fits anywhere. Affordable and practical little sports car.

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

    Pros: Love to sit a polish him on a nice summer day.

    Cons: Hard to get into sometimes, but it's worth it.

    '93 Mr2 Rules Ok — Excellent car, I have previously owned 4 AW11s and am now living with my 3rd SW20, can't say enough about them. Good performance from 2Litre engine N/A even better with Turbo. Great cruising car especially with T/Tops off (If I had hair would be lovely feeling all that fresh air blowing through it). Lovely lines and curves on this model and truly exhilarating to drive quickly on the straight and even more so round the curves. Very good economy (considering how it is driven) Comfortable seating for my old bones (64+ years) I really enjoy the looks on folks faces when they see me ease my well rounded shape out of this wee beastie!!!

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

    Pros: Good looks, Toyota quality

    Cons: None

    Mr2 — For a 1993 Toyota, the MR2 is quite the gorgeous car. Not just in its appearance, but its power as well. This little car really does go. It turns well (but probably not as well as its brothers: the AW11 and the ZZW30) as long as you can handle it. Since the engine is sitting in the back, the rear of the car might...swing out often if you're not careful. A personal near-death experience can tell you that! But even for a N/A 5S-FE, this vehicle can really kick.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Speed, weight, size, comfort

    Cons: Snap oversteer, stock suspension a bit bounvy

    Excellent Handling, Good Power, Good Fuel Economy, Quite Possibly The Hardest Car To Drive — Great car, Good performance, Toyota quality, Excellent handling (really couldn't be better), Quite a range on fuel economy (depends heavily on driving habits). Capable of getting 40mpg with pulse + coasting, or it can get 27 if it's being kept in the powerband frequently. Same 2.2L 5S-FE out of the similarly aged Camry 4cyl. Makes about 135-140hp. Turbo models have the 3S-GE (same as Celica All-Trac [makes around 200hp stock tuned]). 5 speed is geared surprisingly low (higher on Turbo models), 120mph top speed at redline, which places 80mph at 4000 rpm. Exhaust gets loud at 3,500 rpms, so highway driving is loud. Front end can "bob" at high speeds. Handling is exceptional. If driven properly, it will take corners with an Elise, and out turn R34s, Supras, and C5/C6s due to weight. Handling does not feel "planted", however, especially in high speed corners the suspension will give a surprisingly light feel. At high speeds, the car is not nearly as stable because of the weight distribution, light weight, and stiff suspension. Increased downforce (especially front) is necessary to achieve high top speeds. Extreme attention must be paid in cornering to achieve maximum apex speeds. Suspension does a good job of communicating with the driver [mainly through the seat, but also through the wheel (more so at high speeds)]. 1993+ suspension adjustments greatly decrease any "loose feeling" of the rear end caused by the unusual weight distribution (41/59). Front and especially rear sways are a must, along with stiff struts (front and back). Slalom speeds are exceedingly quick. Note: Keeping a smooth line in a corner is very important (especially at high speeds), as any quick adjustments to the front's position will be greatly increased in the rear. This can cause "snap" understeer, which the car is notorious of. This car may just be the best handling car in the world, but if anything it could be the hardest to drive.

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

    Pros: Excellent handling, Enough power to reach high apex speeds

    Cons: Power could be increased, Lack of high speed stability, Lack of interior room, Very difficult to drive properly at max performance

    One Of The Nicest Sport Car Of The 90 — don't buy it, i won't to stay unique loll won't to make it V6 soon, and stay simple and clean i like loud sound system, this is why i have clarion sound system with GPS. Really reliable car, but expensive for parts to repair

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

    Pros: its rare and sexy

    Cons: none

    My First Car — An affordable ferrari! (although note quite that fast). Comfortable for long drives, and short trips to the store. Could use a little more in the power department... though they do have a turbo model for that. And last but not least, gotta love the Toyota reliability, and the working AC

    Pros: Looks great, drives well.

    Cons: cost

    , — nice ride sounds good with induction kit and performance exhuast ...the looks don't seem to age smooth lines.....if your thinking about getting one try and keep away from the t-bars because they all tend to leak at some stage better off getting what they call a moon roof "sunroof" it comes out and sit =s in the front

    Pros: ageless

    Cons: alot of money when they go wrong
