1990 Toyota Corolla Wagon Deluxe 4dr Wagon


Review

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.


Best Features

Gas mileage, steering, strong engine, carries a lot more than you'd think, if necessary.


Worst Features

Interior gadgets (visors, overhead light) have fallen apart. Heating and air conditioning are not great. Seat belts are terrible.

Review

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.


Best Features

roomy on the back, comfortable to drive.


Worst Features

not so powerful \

Review

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
busy lifestyle.


Best Features

shoulder harnesses for the kids in the back and the ability to lay the seats down to convert it to a covered truck.


Worst Features

The only thing I regret is I should have purchased the all wheel drive

Review

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
breaks down.


Best Features

Wagon utility. Nice driving position. the 88-92 Corollas seem simpler and more reliable than the newer ones


Worst Features

The 1.6 liter/3 spd auto matic = performance disaster. And alot of engine noise at highway speed. A 2.0 liter engine and 4 spd auto would be so much better. Rear seats don't fold down all the way.
