Toyota Tercel

Recommended Posts

Well I have the opportunity to buy a '92 Toyota Tercel for $900. 93k miles on it, two door one, in good condition.

 

Should I take advantage of the opportunity? I've been told it gets great gas mileage, which I need more than power these days.

I drove a tercel for a while, while i had my permit. i had to pay for gas at the time, and ill tell ya, it was a lifesaver. but the price seems a little too good to be true, i dont know about your lemon laws, but i would suggest getting it checked at a mechanic right away if you buy it. and last i heard, you oldsmobile wasnt holding up too well, so anything right now is a better investment, well, almost anything

Have ur mechanic run a compression test or a leakdown test on it to check the engine. If it is a manual tranny give it some gas in first gear and make sure the clutch isnt slipping. I belive they have a 1.5L 5efe. Those cars can actualy be kinda zippy, so i hear.

 

The cars price deperciates alot, so i can see it being that cheap
