Tell me what you know.
they're little and cute.
Hm. Looks like if I get an NA model, it'll make a damned fun car, especially with T-Tops for the summer. Then I could buy an old Audi or Subaru for the winter beater....
i did it, terrible car in the snow though
pretty reliable for the most part, but when something does break prepare to get out your wallet, unless you plan on doing your own work. even then, parts usually have to be specially ordered so you can always count on a couple days of downtown.
Did you have real snow tyres, or 3 seasons? Also, did you have the limited slip differential?
it can be done. i know people who drove there in the snow, you just have to be really careful...if you drive in the winter only drive when you have to if there is snow on the ground and have snow tires...you have to watch out in the rain too, the back end likes to slide in any wetness...they are great fun little cars though, and they are not alot to fix. but then again i do all my own work so i only pay parts....and be ready to get a lot of attention and a lot of people asking you what kind of car that is, even people that are into cars don't know what they are looking at.
depends, if all you've ever owned is FWDs i'd suggest getting a FR first, like a 80s maita or mid 80s sr5 corrolla first.
lsd is tubo only, fyi
I had a turbo as a DD for four years. Awesome car for college since parking spaces are cramped. It had enough storage space for my needs.
How much storage space is there, anyway? Could I fit, say, a golf bag? Or maybe a couple decent sized duffle bags?
Yea, but it can't be too hard to install one, ja?
i don't know about a golf bag but my guess is yes...and you can fit a couple duffle bags in the trunk and one under the hood.
I've owned 2... Both were turbo. I'm in college now and its perfect for me. In hs I drove 30 miles each way to school for the whole school year. The car had about 120k miles. Only problems I've had involved basic maintanence. I've done the ignition system (plugs,wires, cap, rotor), fuel filter, ball joints, and thats it. Both my cars were/are at 16psi daily. I get about 28mpg on the interstate. The trunk should be big enough for a golf bag, its about the perfect length and width for it with a little room left as far as heigth wise.
edit: oh btw i lived in tampa and go to uf now so never did the whole snow thing
i thought you were getting a wrx
its not an LSD issue its an all the weight in back issue you can go you just cannot turn, you are not supposed to drive them in the snow without like hardcore winter tires there is even a warning in the visor
n/a's are reliable as hell though...fuckin' camry motors
my girlfriend and i have gone to florida twice, once in my mr2 and once in my 240 and i'd have to say the trip in the mr2 was 100x's better and more comfortable, the interior just isn't very big
it's like it was made for me
i would do most anything for a mint 94 turbo
i wish they had hardtops
1. buy a 94 NA hardtop
2. swap in genIII
Ok guys, thx for the info. Now I've just gotta find a local one before I start any serious looking to make sure I fit in the damned thing
Doesn't look like it's gonna happen
