1992 Toyota MR2 GTS Turbo 2.0 turbo petrol from UK and Ireland


Slight leak on the drivers side of the drainage hole on the roof, blocked up and leaking, apart from that nothing has gone wrong yet, only had it 6 days so we shall see.

Getting a good one can be a nightmare, mine is a Japanese import and you really should drive and see a few before you buy, don't buy a heavily modded one or you will be in problem city.

Most heavy modded Jap turbo's have been raced!

H O W F A S T !!!!!!!!!!!

Got the shock of my life when I first put my foot down, 1992 model is 225bhp, 1994 model is 248bhp, mine will do 0-60 in 5.8 and hits 158mph in standard form, but has larger wheels, performance exhaust and air filter, a real head turner, only thing I have against it is the fuel consumption. Driving easy and you can expect 300 miles out of a full tank at £36, drive like Satan on speed and you can expect 250 miles.

Faster than a Cossie, slower than the Enterprise.

This car is mad, get one as soon as you can.

Fuel consumption doesn't sound that bad :-)) I wack £50 in my Carlos Sainz every week and have never broken 300 miles on that... even driving like my grandmother!!

If any owners read this... how's the handling? I love cars that handle well, and have heard mixed things about the Mk2, so I'm going for a Mk1.

A few years after we bought this car, the battery began to die. We had it fixed and replaced several times. Leave the door open too long and battery dies. Have to wait several minutes before it can start. Just a year ago, the whole auto transmission broke down and failed while driving it to work. It cost about US$2000 to replace with a new one.

General Comments:

I wish Toyota would install better suspension on this car. Bumps and rutted roads make the ride dreadful. Plenty of engine noise enters the cabin. The new transmission we've just installed jerks eruptively when placed in gear.

Acceleration is slow for a sports car. The trunk is an absolute joke. It's too small to fit even a standard size luggage. I wouldn't go shop at Costco with that car. However, fuel economy is very good and handling is excellent. Overall assessment: A fun car to drive.

Dude, it's a sports-car. It's supposed to have a rough ride to compensate for its good handling capabilities.

MR2 and automatic are an oxymoron. A turbo 5-speed might well jerk your head clean off.
