Love this car

by
Feb 9, 2006 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Headlights, leather seating, style and interior.
Cons: Not so good in the snow.
The Bottom Line: I would recommend this car for people with no kids and dont plan on any.

I was looking for something to replace the gas hog SUV we had and just happened to pass this when I was doing my collections at work. I love it. It is a little difficult for me to get in, but the reason is because i have a bad back. Seats are ... read more

Did it again. Just bought my second MR2!

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Looks, feelings, sound, smell, drive, speed, attention, quality?, drive
Cons: Not suitable for winter conditions, can be used as swimming pool if not cleaned properly
The Bottom Line: I agree with the guy that said: don't buy one. I like the fact that people think: what the f* just passed me. Let us be an elite...

In 2000 I bought one of the first MR2's that were available in The Netherlands. I drove the car for four years and really loved it. My business partners thinks that true business men shouldn't drive convertibles. Your client get jealous and think: ... read more

The Poor (or not-so-rich) Man's Porsche

by
Jul 30, 2003 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Handles great, looks great.
Cons: Minimal storage and no cruise control with the 5-speed
The Bottom Line: Not powerful enough to be called a true sports car, not practical, but it turns heads and is very fun to drive.

I've had the '03 Spyder for about 3 weeks and I love it. This is NOT a "practical" car - but then, ... read more

2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder a winner

by
Feb 28, 2003 - Updated Aug 14, 2003 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Quality, great engineering, excellent ride, beautiful styling. A thrill to drive.
Cons: Trunk, driver's seat, interior lighting, top release plate. No info source. See full Review.
The Bottom Line: A 4-cylinder rocket ship with styling and quality that far exceeds its price. Classic Japanese engineering at its best. Feels and sounds like a Grand Prix racer.

OK, Now that I've had my 2003 MR2 for 6 months, I still stand by what I wrote below, but have realized that Toyota can do a lot to improve this wonderful vehicle. So, scan my plaudits (below the starred ****** line), read the new stuff in the next ... read more

Eye Candy for the Road....

by
Jan 7, 2003 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Handles amazingly, price, new body style from the 2000-2002, sexy look, smooth ride
Cons: Difficult to find parts and dealership knowledge about this car, cargo space, and hp
The Bottom Line: The car handles amazingly! I have yet to feel uneasy taking corners in this car. Its a sexy sports car that's under $30K.

This car will get people to turn heads. It has a classy look without having to pay an arm and a leg. Yes, it could use some more power in it, and the convertible top could be automatic, but overall I think it was well worth the purchase. I constantly ... read more

MR2 Going in Reverse

by
Sep 19, 2002 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: Good handling, sporty image, better front end design - more Miata-like
Cons: Lack of horsepower, lack of storage space, higher price
The Bottom Line: Toyota raises the price with little to show for it, car still suffers from too many shortcomings. Miata is a better choice. MR2 Spyder is in Reverse!

When Toyota introduced the MR2 Spyder in 2000 it had a number of shortcomings (see previous reviews by this author), so it was expected that Toyota would attempt to improve the car after a couple of years. Unfortunately, it appears Toyota is going in ... read more

My 2003 MR2 in NH

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: Cornering, acceleration, handling
Cons: 2 seats with no trunk room
A review I read talked about not driving in the snow. Well I have been through two winters using an MR2 as my primary commuting car (30 miles each way) and it's been great in most conditions. Deep snow can be a problem but why not stay home and go ... read more

I ADORE this car!

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: Absolutely gorgeous. Handling is superb. Gas mileage is fantastic.
Cons: (There's miniscule storage space, but I knew that when I bought it)
I just purchased a used 2003 MR2 Spyder with only 8k miles on it. I have to say, quite frankly this is the most beautiful car (of the sportscar genre) I have ever seen. I think it is prettier than the Porsche Boxter which is over 2x the price of the ... read more

Love my MR2!

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: A blast to drive, good gas mileage, easy to park, a head-turner.
Cons: Almost no space to carry anything, hard to get in and out of.
I was lucky enough to find a gently used 2003 MR2 that I've been driving for a month now. And I love it! I find myself looking for reasons to go for a drive! It did take me a while to get used to sitting so low to the ground and the limited visibility ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 
Pros: Looks, Price, Gas Mileage, Convertible Top is easy to use, Handling
Cons: NO Storage and it's bad in snow.
I bought my MR2 in January 2003 and quite simply I love it. People often mistake it for a car, two or three times its value. And I rarely see another one on the road. The car handles excellently and runs strong. You can cram two small weekend duffles b ... read more
