1986 Toyota Tercel Liftback 1.5L 12V 4-in-line from North America
Oil would get into the air filter.
Oil leaks everywhere.
Carb. needed to be rebuilt at 137,000.
Motor died at the end.
Good car if you like Toyota and Japanese cars, bad if you want a car that will past 140,000 miles. our Neon's have had less problems than this Toyota.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

What do you expect with that mileage and age, especially being a cheap car to begin with?!
You bought this vehicle at 120,000 miles. Even for a Toyota, that's pretty far along in its life. If the previous owner didn't maintain it well, the motor is going to breakdown, Toyota or not. So don't criticize the car for something that can most likely be attributed to poor maintenance on behalf of the prior owner. And if it's such a case that you knew who owned it before and how they maintained it, then you should mention that in your review to minimize confusion.
