"From the moment I bought it I loved it! I did have a few problems that were minor and Toyota fixed several times.They never succeeded in fixing the gas tank cover. The biggest problem I had is that the Dealerships didn't know how to work on it! That scared me! After 7 years, I still have the gas cap problem,but the car is amazing to drive! This is my 2nd one and I loving driving it! It's such a cool car and the sequential transmittion makes it so easy to drive without having to use a clutch!"
"I bought this 2003 car in 2005 and love it. It has the smt 6 speed and have had a problem with it 3 months ago. Local Toyota dealership ended up calling factory to have their techs help with diagnosis and resolution. Pricey repair but thank goodness it still was under warranty. Baby Blue has only 34,000 miles and she is a little honey. Driving a big car intimidates me so I am very happy driving this one in heavy traffic or on a country road in the summer with the top down along Big Sur on Hwy 1. I have looked at Pontiac Stealth and Saturn's Sky but they do not speak to me as the Spyder does. I am single, so I don't mind the limited storage space and besides my other car is a truck. Bring the Spyder back, Toyota, you have a lot of fans with this one."
"Each year i would treat myself to a new car. I have had a BMW, Mercedes, 4 Subarus including the SVX and Limited GT, a VR-4 and 2 Miata's. None have felt like an extention of my body as the 2003 MR2 spyder. Around town with the top down or driving from P.A up the coast to Maine, every moment is a joy. I am going on 2 years now and have NO plans of trading this little guy in.."
