"Great, reliable vehicle."

Fun to drive. Great gas mileage.
This has been a low maintenance, very reliable car with great gas mileage. It is a fun car to drive that has always got me to where I was going. Vehicle is a red convertible which you do not see may on the road any more. Recently replaced black cloth top which makes vehicle look like new. I am always being asked if I am interested in selling my car. It has been an awesome car to own!

"Sweet Car, XLNT MPG, EZ to service, XLNT Quality"

Reliable, Economical, FUN FUN FUN
Bit of a Go-Kart ride in Michigan's poor roads
36-38 on Highway, stellar reliability, fun convertible, handles excellently, FUN is the key word here . Drove it from Florida to Michigan with Zero problems. Have it up for sale, but could care less if it does not sell. I paint houses and wish my equipment would all fit in the trunk !

"Would like to keep this forever"

Reliable, good on gas, top comes off quick.
Rough ride, no cruise control
We bought the Paseo Convertible from California in 2005 with 70,0000 miles. It has a full leather interior. We've now had it for 8 years and it is still going strong. Replaced the convertible top and rear glass, and was told it would last longer than the factory one. The ride is rough and you are very low to the ground. It's been hit twice at parking lots while parked, probably because it is so small. Such a reliable vehicle, nothing has gone wrong. Our mechanic says it is one of the best vehicles he has seen and wants to buy it if we ever sell. The manual roof and dependability of Toyota were the deciding factors in getting this car. Wish it had cruise control, but are looking into finding a Paseo at a junk yard to see if it is possible to install one.Read less

"love this car"

price, gas mileage, fun to drive, reliable
bigger cars are more comfortable
I love this car but I am thinking of leaving the country and can't take it . If I could, I would. If I stay in the country, I will keep it still it dies. Then I will get a new engine and keep driving it.
