1995 Toyota Tercel 1.5 from North America
Almost Perfect... would love it in a convertible!
Well, the check engine light came on after I was went through a parking garage that had 30+ speed bumps. It is still on... still haven't fixed it because it runs like a champ!
The leather seats aren't the best... they have cracked. I got covers for them.
That is it! I has really been pretty perfect.
This car has been driven through the desert, the mountains, often on 6 hours drives. It could use a 5th gear, it is almost begging for it on the highway, and obviously the engine could use a bit more power, but it is of the highest quality 4-bangers of which I know.
Wish it was a convertible...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I still own it... 131k miles now... it's great... but I'm thinking of getting a little newer of a car. Just replaced the brake pads, but it is going to new a new clutch soon (these things happen), still haven't replaced the timing belt (and of course, they want to replace the water pump), and though the engine will last forever, the ride is a bit bumpy (as it has been since the day I got it... didn't get much better after I replaced the shocks and struts).

I feel the exact same way... would LOVE it in a convertible. I also replaced the shocks and struts, and the ride stayed quite bumpy. I also kinda need a new clutch and timing belt... but this car has been rock solid!!!
