1987 Toyota Tercel 3dr hatchback 1.5 12 valve 3E from North America
247,520 miles and still ticking
Just put new muffler on for 200 bucks.
Put a new seal in hydraulic clutch reserve tank.
New air filter.
New plugs, wires, and oil.
Other that this, the car is just about to hit a 1/4 million miles and purrs like a kitten.
Now for the interior. Sat for 3 years in my back yard. I put a new battery in it and it started right up; amazing. Sitting for three years though has really been hard on the interior. The Oklahoma sun has actually burned the seat to black and revealed the inside cushions.
Other than that, this car is a gold mine. I paid 300 bones for it in 2005; the best darn investment I ever made.
Wonderful to drive.
No A/C, no problem. It has 275-ac, which is short for 2 windows down and 75mph up and down the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
