1992 Toyota Paseo 1.5 from North America
New engine at 70,000 km.
Brake replacement at 235,000 km.
Clutch after 14 years.
I bought this car on a whim as I was looking at Camry's.
Amazingly reliable little car, and if it wasn't for the garage emptying my oil pan and not refilling it at a routine oil change, I'd still be on the original engine.
Great gas mileage still, but is going to need some strut and spring work before I put it through another Canadian winter. That, and a need for four new wheels, has finally got me buying a new car.
I'm half tempted to put it up on blocks and work on restoring it to original condition again, and give it to my son when he's old enough to drive. I'm gonna miss this car. It's the last thing I owned from before I got married!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
