Toyota MR2 Spyder Reviews

A blast to drive even at 102K and fuel economy remains at factory specs (26/32 mpg) even though a tune up has yet to be done. Low maintenance and nary a repair the whole while. Finish remains bright and shiny even though parked outdoor year round.

This car corners and handles like a dream. Headlights could provide more field of view, but the brakes are fantastic are the the transmission, suspension and build quality throughout.

Highly recommended.

Best car I have ever owned.
Fun to drive.

Its a sexy car that screams "Look at me"

It is a spooky all black 2003 w/ leather interior. I can't stop driving it. I am somewhat embarrassed to be hooked on a Toyota, when all I've owned for 18 years are two pick up trucks.

It's MY car and no one else in the family can drive it! I feel like a kid again. Nimble & quick feels very safe to drive. Shifting gears is GREAT! The linkage makes this little 'click-click' sound as you progress through the gears. Cool!
