1993 Toyota Tercel Base 1.5 from North America
Great first car
The only real problem I have with the car is whenever I start the car, it burns oil and smokes at startup. This has resulted in my having to put a quart of oil in about every 2 weeks or so. I took it to a repair shop, but they said there was nothing they could do short of replacing the whole engine. They suggested the heaviest weight motor oil (20W-50) but unfortunately it hasn't helped much.
The car gets me from point A to point B every time and in all weathers. Reliable.
I can go a week and a half without putting gas in it, GREAT gas mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
