The 1995 Toyota Tercel is my wife's car, and at first I considered it the red-headed step-child and did not care for it, since I LOVE my 1999 Toyota Tacoma...LoL BUT...now that I live a little further away from my work, I drive it to work. I have a ... read more

Nov 14, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fuel economy, Easy maintainence.
Cons: A tad small, lack of features.
The Bottom Line: Reliable little car that is really easy on the wallet.

Last November, I was the proud owner of a 1992 Ford Taurus GL Sedan. It had truly served me well, but after 189,000 miles, my car finally gave out on me on my way home. I turned it off and tried to restart it. Nothing! Me and my dad hauled it back home ... read more

Still going strong!

Mar 28, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliability, good power (for engine size), routine maintenance is easy, gas mileage.
Cons: Road noise, not especially comfortable, paint fades easily.
The Bottom Line: My own Tercel's track record speaks for itself. Unsurpassed reliability makes the Tercel a sound purchase, although taller people my find it cramped.

Purchased new in '95, I have driven my stick-shift Tercel in every possible U.S. weather/road conditions in over 220,000 miles, and it still drives strong. Because of some very heavy demands placed on the engine (higher driving speeds, mountain travel, ... read more

Consumer Reports was Right! The Tercel IS a Very Reliable Car!

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: VERY reliable. Drives and handles nicely.
Cons: Brake pads needed to be replaced.
The Bottom Line: We have had the Tercel for 2 years and it has been VERY reliable and except for the brakes,it's been virtually trouble free.

When my daughter turned 16 she got her license, and her first job. It was becoming more and more difficult to take her to and from work, so we decided it was time for us to start looking at used cars for her. She had the money in the bank to pay for ... read more

I love this car. My parents got this car for me when I got my permit. Brand new and basic. It's silver or grey, if you want to be dull about it. It now has 150,000 miles, I know it's a lot, and is still going. I've loved this vehicle since I ... read more

I bought my 1995 Toyota Tercel when it was about 1 year old and had about 30,000 miles on it. I bought this car from a dealer (CarMax) that was reliable and advertised a "No Haggle" policy and several guarantees for the purchase, so I felt ... read more

When I first went car shopping in '97 I was dreading it. I knew that I could not afford to buy a new car & was desperately seeking a quality used car. Until I bought my Tercel I thought the term quality used car was an oxymoron. After ... read more

Pros: awesome mileage, light, quick, RELIABLE, best bang for your buck. This car is awesome!
Cons: It won't win any beauty pageants but WHO CARES?? Not for families with kids.
It's not much to look at but I do like the color (mint). It's aerodynamic, light, quick, reliable, everything that I ever needed over the past 9 years. I have had absolutely NO problems since 1995 until recently. And that has nothing to do with the ... read more
