When they were still being made after the Starlet was dropped from the Stateside Toyota lineup they were the smallest car sold by Toyota in the states. It was replaced by the Echo.

What exactly are you wanting to know about them? 1.5L I-4 engine, most had standard trannies and the ones that were auto were absolute dogs....wouldn't run out of sight in a week!

They are decent cars, get fair gas mileage for their size...

IF THEY ONLY HAD FUC KING OVERDRIVE... They would be gas mileage kings.

I'll take pics of my sister's tomorrow, because I put a kick *** system in it.

Eclipse 5434

Morel 4" Components (front fill)

Kenwood 6 1/4" co-ax (rear fill)

Xtant 2400 (sub amp)

2 12" Image Dynamics IDQ's

Prefab dual 12" box...

Sounds great.

In my experience they aren't so friendly to people that drive Geo Prizms (which is mechanically the exact same car as a same-year Corolla) :fyi:

See if you can buy a junkyard alternator and get it re-wound for higher amperage...

As far as the speed you would probably be best off to save on gas with this car for awhile then buy a faster one later. They are a great platform for a system.

yeh the tercel is pretty stable for a good system...just a lot of rattling in the trunk only which is mighty gay...and the whining from the ****** of an alternator...like when i have it turned up at a reasonable volume while im at a red light, then it turns green i give it some gas then it squeals like hell, i actually have to turn down my radio then gas it to get the squealing to stop....you know how bad that looks when ur stopped next to some girls and they yell out that my car sounds like a b*tch

yo, true that on the trunk rattling man, i am pushing 2 alpine type s's, which i think are pretty sweet, but not that strong of an amp, and my trunk rattles like crazy, ive tried many things to stop some of the rattling, which didnt turn out all that sucessfull, tell me if you figure out some good ways to stop some of the rattling, thanks
