Great little sporty car! Awesome gas mileage!

It is fun to drive, handles great in snow without studded tires, accelerates well, and mine is zippy. Always starts, feels like quality and drives solidly for such a light car. I get well over 40 mpg ...
It is fun to drive, handles great in snow without studded tires, accelerates well, and mine is zippy. Always starts, feels like quality and drives solidly for such a light car. I get well over 40 mpg on the highway and 28-35 around town. It has only a suggestion of a back seat, not really usable unless for a small child or the dog. Only gripe is that it needs a hatchback, it is hard to reach into the back window area. Minimal frills inside and the drink holder is in an awkward place. Trunk holds 3-4 large rolling luggage pieces! I have been surprised at how much I can get in the trunk. I love this car, it is probably my favorite over 30 years of driving, just needs a hatchback. I would recommend it as basically a 2 seater with extra room. Nice car and a cutie-pie to boot!

The Toyota Paseo is a very good car. It gets very good gas mileage (around 30 mpg) handles very well, and is resonably comfortable. If you're in the front seats, that is. The back seats are a joke for anyone over about 12 years old or 4 and a half feet tall. Also, while it handles very well, it has very little power. It doesn't have a problem staying at highway or interstate speeds, so it would make an excellent commuter vehicle, bit its acceleration is about what is to be expected from something with about 100hp. Overall a very nice and good-looking vehicle but not recommended for performance or carrying more than two and a half people at a time.

Fine commuter

I actually have a 1995 Paseo, but 92', 93', 96', 97' were my only options. Anycase, bought this car brand new back in 95'. It was my ride of choice for college. It was flashy as no one had ever heard of this model from toyota. Through out the course, I had since bought other cars, but still retain this paseo. Now, it is over 300,000 miles on it, it still runs, but needs a few replacement parts. It does drip some oil, and burns oil as well; however, I would keep this car as long as I can. It's that great of a little car!
