1987 Toyota MR2 1.6 4A-GE
Highly recommended little sports car
At about 136k miles, the charging system started to fail. Ended up being the battery cables. Replaced both for under $10.
That is really it, besides normal tune-up and wear and tear items.
Love this car so much. Wanted one for so many years, and had to jump on this one after my friend put it up for sale.
Minimal rust on the rear wheel arches, and the paint still shines. Sure, this is an automatic MR2. Most of them are manuals, but I bought this one because it was well cared for and in great condition.
It's still quite quick and the fuel economy is excellent.
The interior is near perfect, with only minor wear on the driver's seat side bolster.
Trunk space is adequate, and there is a bit up front as well. For a guy and his girlfriend on a weekend trip, you don't need any more!
I paid $1,850 for mine, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
