Worth Every Penny! — This is a fun little car to drive to and from work or wherever you need to go. I'm never bored when I'm in my car. It's a fairly sturdy one for it's age too, a couple rattles and squeaks but nothing major. The interior is very logically laid out and everything is within arm's reach. The styling of the car is something that I get compliments on all the time, and the question "What is that?" is almost unavoidable. She gets phenomenal gas mileage, easily twice to three times what my old Mountaineer got. The maintenance fees are really low too. :)

Pros: Phenomenal handling, fun to drive, comfortable

Cons: If you have kids or carry passengers, AVOID!!

A Perfect Car If You Are A Boring Person. — It's a decent economy car. If you're looking for a mundane car that doesn't really stand out but is good on gas, it's ideal. The performance is lacking, but that's to be expected. All together it's pretty solid for what it is.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very solid & reliable.

Cons: 93 bhp.  That's the equivalent of about 15 push lawnmovers tied together.  Don't expect to go anywhere fast.

Fun Commuter — this car needed a celica motor or turbo, the tercel motor lacked horsepower the car was well built being it was made in Japan I liked the appearance but did not like the lack of aftermarket support very reliable and 5 speed was great on gas it was fun but lacked power and space

Pros: nice and reliable

Cons: lacked power and space

Best Smallest Car Out There! — the car is pretty quick off the line because it's only about 1,100 pounds. small, but convenient. not too much room to party in the back. this car saves a lot of gas! with a full tank (9 gallons), you can go about 180 miles.

Pros: saves gas and it's quick off the line.

Cons: small, a little too small to even be a car.

Great Little Car — I had this car for 8 years and it had 207,000 miles on it when I sold it. It ran great with no problems. I sold it because it was time to get something bigger. It was a quick little car that got around 32 mpg. It was very fun to drive because of its light weight and its responsive steering. I would recommend this car for its great mpg.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great mpg and fun to drive

Cons: could have more hp

Perfect First Car By toritown

As a 16 year-old, spending $900 on a car seemed incredibly risky, especially a 20 year-old one (older than me!), with 160,000 miles and a model no one had heard of. Well it turned out to be exactly w... Read More
