"I purchased this car in white. I have been the only owner and the only driver all these years. I have replaced parts and made upgrades to keep it as reliable as it was when I first bought it. I have driven other cars, but have never found the overall practical, handsome and reliable Tercel to be surpassed by another style. A very negligent driver recently ran a light at excessive speed and struck the driver's side. My little Toyota saved my life. Insurance adjuster for the party at fault insisted on totaling it, even with engine and transmission and other valuable parts not affected. I just find myself wanting to bring it back to life, and help it to get back home with me. It has been with me through so much for so many years. I'm afraid I will never find another one. I wish they would find me a replacement. I am lucky to be alive, and I am thankful to be. I just find that I'm grieving for the loss of my car more than people can understand. This car is the best. If you have one, be thankful."

Pros: "Great on gas, easy to drive, Perfect first car!"

Cons: "Paint fades without reason"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I got this car in high school as my first car. It still runs great! It is 18 years old and I have only had to replace the water pump and I am sure that was my own fault. The only issue I have ever had with this car is the paint. The paint seams to turn a white color (my car is red) and it had faded to extremes. At first I thought it was just my car, but every Tercel I have saw is the same way no matter what color it is. Overall this is the greatest car I have ever had. I took it to the beach on $20. The beach was 5 hours away."

"I have had this car for a couple years and it has not dissapointed. It works great! My car has drink holders just so everyone knows, seems to me that, that is the only con. I liked and gas was amazing.. But needed a bigger car so now i am selling it and came on her to know for how much. I feel happy selling it and know the people who are going to buy it will for sure not be dissapointed. Thinking about buying one? DO IT, If you want to save a lot on money of gas. It's worth it!"
