1992 Toyota Paseo 1.5 DOHC 16v EFI from North America
Best car EVAR which it was still in production
Nothing has gone wrong on it (yet), and I hope this car will be a lot better than my crappy Accent.
Best ever sporty, sexy, speedy, and manual FTW!!!
I use to own a 2001 Hyundai Accent GS with a 1.5 SOHC 12V engine, which was gutless compared to the Paseo, and it only generated 89HP. Also the transmission was automatic and was starting to fail on me; it was practically going into neutral by itself and staying stuck in 3rd gear; how crappy is that? So I traded it with the Paseo.
My family except my older brother thought I was crazy to trade a 2001 with a 1992. Well Toyota has a lot of quality compared to a Hyundai, and my Accent had about 163000, 2 years of ownership equals 2 year in hell. I never really liked that car, but the Paseo is a whole different story.
The only major thing I did to it was an oil change when I got it, and to swap the cassette AM/FM to a Pioneer CD player, which I had on my Hyundai (I put back the original CD player before trading it teehee!). Also the Hyundai car key broke in the driver's side door handle, when in fact the key was made of weak white metal, and it bent in my pocket, seriously!!!
So... yeah the Paseo is great, sporty, and sexy... man I could go all day commenting on that car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
