I don't hate any Toyotas, but I will admit some aren't the cream of the crop.

This ought to get some debates going.
Whats your least favotite toyotas?

#1 3g Turdcel, the rear window on the hatch was simply repulsive.
#2 Previa, The driving dildo, hard as a bitch to work on too.
#3 MRS, So ugly and an absolute disgrace to the MR2 name.
#4 2g smelica, liftback only (I like the 2g coupes)
#5 3g celica, coupe only (I like the 3g liftbacks)

Nah mate, there are hundreds that look worse than that, at that time people saw those Celica's and went WOW!

I've seen MRS with bodykits that looked cool - it's a "chick car", usually there's a hottie behind the wheel.
I hate those Tokyo taxis, early Coronas, Cressida's etc but my no1 vote at the moment is the Toyota Will - looks like a mutant Citroen 2CV with an Anglia rear screen. And what about the Toyota Bb - a brick on wheels, so square it actually has a cult following? Whoever designed those and got promoted must have sleepless nights. What's more scary is thinking what kind of mind would buy one, sothat he could park it in the drive and admire it?

Am I the only one that believes if only men drove cars, there would be no 4 door sedans, MPV's or ugly cars?
Ask most chicks "what car do you drive?" and the reply - A blue one!

Whoa whoa whoa there. Now I'll admit the exterior has to grow on you and there are a couple cheapy plastic bits on the inside, but they have VERY comfortable seats and seating position, they handle... heck.. they probably handle as good or better than any other Toyota stock/stock and they get pretty decent performance out of an economy motor. My wife and I drove one on a 2400 mile round trip or so and it was a much more pleasant experience than any other vehicle I'd done it in (and one of those vehicles was a 6th gen celi, which I did about four times).

Sorry, but just had to defend the car, they could have done better on the looks and given it at least the 2zzge as an option, but you have to respect what they DID do well.. certainly not one of the worst Toyotas and not a disgrace to MR2s...

I'm just going to laugh because the MR-S outperforms your 88 GTS entirely. No offence to you but with it being a chick car and a disgrace to the MR2 family. It would embarrass you under most forms of racing.

You're basing too much on looks. And I can't blame a bad car just the bad decisions of toyota.

1. ST184 Celica for using the god damned 5sfe.
2. ST205 for never being sold in america when it would have sold better than any other performance toyota.
3. Cheeping out on the corrosion protection for the AE86 leading to horrid rot problems. (depending on location ofcorse)
4. Not selling the Curren in the states.
5. Not putting PS in the AW11. lol

Fair enough, they do handle really good. I've seen them look downright sexy with the right bodykit. One of those would be boss with a fresh 3sgte too. I think I'm just mostly mad that toyota didn't make the car as great as it should be. IMAO bone stock they are too girly/homo-ish.

09-14-2008, 04:50 PM
BTW the MRS outperforming my 20 year old pos does nothing to sway my oppinion.


And yes my words were too harsh, but it still remains one of my least favorite yotas.

i have to admit, i drove a yaris just yesterday and i have to say its definately for the soccer moms. the interior sucked, i had to reach a mile to push the window button, the cluster is in the middle of the dashboard, leaving a big empty spot in front of you behind the steering wheel, i came close to driving with no lights because the gauge lights stay on so i thought the lights came on automatically, o and i cant forget it took about 2 minutes to make it up to 70 on the freeway without having to shoot the rpms up. if anyone actually likes the yaris, it must be to save gas money.... btw they look like eggs.

I knew I was gonna make some blood enemies with this thread :laugh:

I'm not trying to hate, I would take a previa over any american junk in the same class. The previa does however remain one of my least favorite toys :p

previa all trac was awesome..lol. my buddy worked at a toyota dealership and he said this guy shipped three previa all tracs from japan... they also have oil resevoirs because they go through so much oil..lol

I would say, a previa sleeper would be great in such a wrong way.

Ryan
09-14-2008, 08:27 PM
o it would....the all tracs were supercharged...but the belt that ran the superchargers was hooked up to one of the front drive shafts..lol it pushed like 3-5 psi..lol. i would love to have one as an ultimate sleeper...

Hahah, must have been an Auto. I'd be rolling on the ground watching my wife dust you in her 5speed yaris hatch :bigthumbu But uh, yeah, they're kinda goofy looking :)

sorry cant hate on 3rd gens, they dont really die

09-15-2008, 12:51 PM
Oh snap, I forgot about the echo. And I looked up some 1st and 2nd gen cressida's too. So I would say the 3rd gen celica coupe and the Mrs.2 got knocked off the list.

I don't hate the 3rd gens. The liftback in your sig is HAWT!!!, however I still can't stomach the coupes. It's just like a traingle with a rectangle turd sloppily grafted to the back. IMO the lines just don't flow right.

Joe, even though you have a hatchback, you have to admit the 3g coupes look like an 87 regal with half the trunk cut off..

if we're going based off looks here, you mean you'd consider the previa uglier than this?

Even so, it doesnt mean they arent reliable

I actualy do. I hate bulbous shaped vehicles, more than I hate boxy cars. thats not to say round cars are bad, smooth rounded lines are good, bulbous down syndrome lines are teh shitty. All in my own oppinion of course.

xB, xD, toyota van, mk 1 supra, and anything since the turn of the century.

And previas aren't that bad. Headgaskets apparently are a MF, but never had to do one. Clutch is super easy. :)

Although they definitely are a bit odd. And kind of a POS to bleed out the coolant system. But so are all Mid-engine cars.... something about having 20ft of coolant lines.

And oh yeah, anything Land Cruiser is a PITA to work on... mostly because everything is oh holy shit big and heavy on it.

I was actually considering xB as one of my least fave toyota's, those things are just....blech. And I didnt know about the xD yet, looked it up, I dont think its all that bad.

I hate the older xB's but man I really like the new ones. I jump at any opportunity to PDI one. My least favorite car in the line up right now is deff. the solara's. I'm also not a fan of the xD's.
Previa is a dirty word in my shop.

Yes they did.

There are tons of them here 2WD, 4WD, Petrol & Diesel - Its called the TownAce here.
Buddy of mine bought one 3 yrs ago for $500 with a 2Y motor and it hasn't given him a minutes shit apart from the "fridge" packing up. Do you guys get the version with skylights on either side of the roof?

Yeah, I'm shallow like that.

At the end of the day I would rather have a ugly fast car, than a pretty slow car. But to me a car is art work and it needs to be visualy appealing to me.

Kind of reminds me of the early stages of the tuner craze when you took a small, light, simple car and went from there.

As far as performance is anything w/ a 3VZ-FE... 4runner, t100, hilux... anything... that motor is a serious POS.

I love the old school toyo van. Did you know it has an ice maker in front? Thats pimp. But i hate the feeling of being over the front wheels and driving around in it. :wtf:


The previa... thats the weirdest toyota i have ever seen. Everything on it is just wrong. The sc is badass though. I have driven both and the sc is only a tad bit faster but whats funny about it is the whistle noise it makes when u give it gas. No other toyota or honda makes a noise like it.
