    1997 Tercel Ce — I bought this car in 2006. Its not very fast but it is very fuel friendly. Now a days you need one of this to move around. I have done a couple of thing to keep it looking good and I love it. Next step its going to be making it turbo...

    Pros: Great fuel eficiency

    Cons: Not very fast

    1997 Toyota Tercel Coupe — this is a nice little car that gets 35 mpg, and pulls hard since it's manual transmission. Solid built, even though low class, it has everything needed, doesn't have any unnecessary things that cause little problems. Also the car is really light for that reason. It's a real fun car to drive around, especially with gas price this high.

    Pros: 35mpg, Manual Transmission, light, simple

    Cons: no power window nor power lock.
