"Looks and drives like a Porsche Roadster except at a wonderful budget value. Handling and driveability is very enjoyable. True convertible roadster experience - top down driving, taking turns well, and always getting looks due to limited availability."
I bought my Yellow Spyder about 9 months ago with 94,000 miles
I love this car !!!
It handles Awesome and I get over 35 mpg with the ac on 80% of the time !!!
The top goes up in down in 10 seconds !!!
I love this car way more than my 2000 miata !!
I removed the donut upfront and put a can of fix a flat and a cigarette pump
The car brakes and shifts extremely well for a 100K and clutch is durable and quiet !!!
AC is very powerful !!!"
"After care giving my late husband for 2 yrs as he battled cancer I felt I needed something fun in my life.
I decided to buy a Prius. I've always owned Toyotas and went to the dealer ship. Looking around the lot, I spotted the MR-2 Spyder.
I aways loved sports cars (my first was ab 1958 TR-3) and the Spyder brought back memories of driving with the top down, wind in my hair and great fun!!!
I checked it out, drove it and I was sold. I thought of the practically of it and the fact that I have 6 grand daughters, not practical at all. But I was sold!!!
I've had nothing but fun in my Spyder!!! It has been very reliable, not a bit of trouble with it. I've driven it on long trips and found that it is anything but comfortable but that issue is secondary to the top down and sun shining!! Trunk space??? Who needs to haul all that "stuff" around on a trip anyway???? I can fit a change of clothes and an overnight bag in the compartments behind the seats.
Yes it is impractical but I have loved every moment behind the wheel and am the envy of my gals and my children too!!! This granny is not too old to enjoy a fun car and jealous glances from other drivers!!!!
PS: I have another car to haul the g'kids around!"
