Nothing glamorous about this car, but it continues to be a pleasure to own. I marvel at this piece of engineering. It has a strong, quick engine, it is agile, gets great gas mileage, and needs little in the way of major repairs (knock on wood). Concerns are that it tends to run hot, so you have to pay attention to fluids; and it is a compact car so big people are not terribly comfortable. I bought the floor model, which was made in Japan. I "only" have about 190k miles on it, so it sounds like it is easily good for another 75-100k.

One of my favorites of all time. This is my third and they are getting harder to find. Runs circles around my AWD CRV in the snow. Better traction and gas mileage than the Honda. I don't know why Toyota doesn't make a nice little AWD wagon with MANUAL transmission and good gas mileage. They have handed the market to Subaru.

This car is really fun to drive and gets a get gas mileage. I get 36-37 all the time on the highway, and have gotten up to 40 at about 60mph. I have owned since 188,000 and have only replaced the clutch and exhaust manifold.

I bought this car 5 years ago and it
never let me down(well once, the gear
would not shift, took us $20 to repair
the brake connection). the A/C lost
most of its coolness during last
summer. but I guess it happens for a
lot of old cars. Every time you go to
the car, with 7 inches of snow or not,
you know it is going to start and carry
u. It is also not hard to sell. 5 year
of ownership, total cost is $250 for
brakes, some $ for oid change and $40
for battery and $20 for brake
connection. Not bad for a 10+ year old
car at least by my standards.

I've had this car for two years now and
I couldn't be happier. At first I
thought "This is a station wagon, how
can this be cool?" Now with only minor
repairs and maintenance( tires, brakes,
oil changes as needed) I am sincerely
impressed with this car. Even on road
trips with it completly loaded down
(pulling a trailer) or for getting to
those great mountain biking places this
car has more than kept time with our

I bought this car about 5 years ago (it
was already 8 years old) just for basic
trans for a year or two until I get
something better. Well, oddly enough, I
can't let it go. It's the best car I've
ever own. Not the prettiest or most
comfortable, but does the job and never
so, I bought THIS 1990 COROLLA and the seller lost the power steering fluid cap and stuffed a rag in it... Didn't notice anything wrong when test driving, but on the way home when I got up to 60MPH, I...
