I'm in the market for an MR2T (hopefully a virgin one) here soon and I want to know what kind of problems or things I should look for when I go to look at them.

my friend just got a 94 n/a. CLEAAAAN...compared to my car. But the guy was asking for like 10k or somthin. And the car had nuthin wrong with it except for a crack on the bumper which the guy covered it with a mr2 bra. So my friends dad hassled him for it and he got it for 7250...not bad i guess. Its clean though. Good luck finding your deuce.

6. it turbocharged, check the turbo for play
