The Best Car In The World!!!


There was some problem with the electrics the first week, but I got that sorted soon enough :)

I cleaned the exhaust right from under the car one day!

I broke booth front springs in a jump and that also took care of the forward bumper.

General Comments:

This car handled great and what ever you gave it, it always asked for more! I bought this car mainly to use it in rally and guessed it wouldn't last me the summer, but better yet Toyota proofed it is nr.1 one in car manufacturing and it lasted two years!

It is the best car I have ever had it is still running though my brother has it!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
