A very reliable car!!!
The back, right ball bearing wore out.
Many owners of the Toyota Tercel, think this is an underpowered car, but the one I have is actually very quick. Compared to my previous car - a Volvo 760 - it is very quick, as the Volvo had a 2.8 L V6 engine.
The 4WD is very useful in the hard winters, but I have some problems getting the car back to 2WD, as it has a differential lock.
When I'm driving the cabin is big enough, and I'm about 2 metres long. A problem is when I am about to enter or exit the car, there is not enough leg room to get out in an easy way.
Loading capacity is surprisingly large. I fitted a nearly 1.5 metre EL piano back there. There was still room for a passenger in one of the back seats.
Economically it uses about 0.7 litres of fuel in the cities. The repair costs are fairly cheap, as they are rare.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
