1996 Toyota Tercel 1.5 turbo diesel from Malta
A truly bad bargain
As soon as I bought the car, the clutch began slipping, the ignition blew off and a short in the lighting system of the car led to a fire in my car interiors. I had to say bye bye to that car.
A car which has very low performance and low acceleration when compared to the NISSAN skyline I've just bought.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Credible or not, any car potentially could catch fire... but it's a rarity amongst the Tercel.

I can't believe that you just compare the performance from a Toyota tercel to a Nissan skyline. For what I know, there isn't any Toyota tercel diesel out there, at least in stock form. Those two factor pretty much tell me that your review is a fake, and a very very bad one.

Yes, Toyota did produce a 1.5 turbo diesel tercel. The same engine was used in the 1996 Starlet, although non turbo-ed.
