1987 Toyota Tercel 2 Door DX 1.5 from North America
An extremely reliable money saver
When I first bought this car it needed, some work. I had the brakes done, a new headlight installed, a new fuel pump, muffler work and some other minor bits and pieces. Recently however I had the heater fan and motor replaced which luckily I found for 12 dollars at a wrecker.
This car is my savior, it always starts rain or shine without doubt. It definitly isn't one of the fastest cars out there, and it doesn't look as good as it used to. However I can drive around for 2 days on 5 dollars worth of gas, and my insurance is peanuts. This makes it all worth it. I expect it to survived about 100000 more kms, then it will be time to surrender it, I definitly will be looking into buying another tercel after-wards though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
