A high performance, but highly practical car
The plastic radiator started leaking at 75k miles - replaced it with an after-market metal one.
Converted the air conditioning to R134 in 1995.
Seats are pretty worn by now.
The clear coat over the black paint is peeling off.
This has been a really wonderful car to drive, and very reliable. I love the power and handling. Needs to run at high RPM (redlines at 7600) for best performance.
Hatchback with folding rear seats makes it easy to carry large items like lawn mowers or many bags of mulch.
Seems you can't go wrong with a Toyota.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
