2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder 1.8 from North America
Great for summer tooling around
Nothing so far.
Bought in Oct. 2007. Had it 2 years now; actually 2 long summers as I only drive it for about 6 months out of the year, and it's stored winters.
I bought it because I wanted a small 2 seat convertible. I'm a Honda man with 6 Honda's in my immediate and extended family. I just couldn't fit into the S2000. First Toyota...
I fit in it just great.. 6'2" 210 ibs. Get around 33 mpg and drive with the top down as much as I can. I actually like the rear engine placement. The engine stays very clean back there. No problems so far. I do all my own maintenance. Anyhow, I'm in my 50's... it was either time for an affair or a sports car... the car is cheaper...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Update on the MR2... yes it's me. I learned about Spyderchat.com... bought a frame brace, put it on this past summer, along with new tires, Continentals. WOW! What a ride difference! Rides much better for the bad roads here in Wisconsin.
Have 33k on it now... Will soon be storing it. Took the front tire out, and use that space for additional trunk space. Bought the Slime tire repair kit from Walmart, and use that as the safety backup.
