2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder Reviews

Best car I have ever owned. Fun to drive.
Very spacious inside compared to similar models by other manufacturers. Economical and fun to drive, convertable top opens and closes easily in less than 5 seconds. Excellent engine and drive train; my model has the sequential manual transmission which is fun and convenient.
