Replaced fluids and changed the front brakes and my cousin has a car that'll probably be trouble-free for years. Price: $5k CDN

Very similar story & price as my Firefly, except it had less than half that mileage on the clock when I snagged it.
I never had a Toyota before this 99 that was given to me w/ 233K. I'm haveing less concerns than my Honda's that were younger & a 100K less. Better gas mileage too. All mine were stick w/ 4cyl & the best I got w/ any of them was 35MPG. 47.5 is my best with my Scan Guage ii. I was only expecting low to mid 30's when I picked it up. My all around daily driving this summer is 44-45. I'm planning on driving this car until at least 300K @ 243K right now.

Good luck w/ your great find you've got a keeper,
