1995 Toyota Tercel DX 1.5 DOHC from North America
Wanna race? I have a 10 speed bike!
Everything; the car is junk.
The engine says it all!
The cylinders go bad one day.
The second day it's drinking oil and has no power.
Well it never had power.
I have owned other Toyota cars, that weren't as bad as the Tercel, but I still wasn't very happy with them.
My last car was a Honda Accord; I thought that didn't have power, at least IT WILL OUT RUN A 10 SPEED BIKE. Of course I wouldn't recommend the Honda, but it was a lot better than any Toyota I have owned.
I WOULD RECOMMEND THE MADE IN US CARS FIRST.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Well I don't know about the Tercel, but I have a 1993 Corolla with 201,000 miles and it has been a wonderful little car and its just now starting to burn a little oil, I'm hoping to get around 300,000 miles before I replace it with a new corolla.

Toyota is legendary for making engines that just don't die, I have 2 Toyota 4Runners, one with 370,000 the other has 268,000-both run perfectly. Like any kind of car you can get a lemon-my brother had a lemon Corolla and another brother has a lemon 4Runner-but these are rare occurrences. I have had 2 Tercels and both had over 200,000 on the clock-good cheap transportation! Try to get a good used Corolla, the 1993-96 (1.6L 16 valve) especially are unstoppable.
