Not a lot of expense to drive this car. A tune up, generator, battery, ty-rod, two new tires. This is after owning this baby for two years. Oh, and a whole new exhaust system for $160. After testing newer corollas, I could not really tell a lot of difference. Does not burn or use oil and runs like a expensive watch. I have 140,000 miles. I can tolerate rust. Now this does not turn heads but this car sure is one reliable Toyota. Always allow the car to drink the 3000 mile drink of oil and it will be fine.
Interior design-easy access to radio, wipers and lights.
I love this car. I got it fourth or fifth hand but it is as reliable as any car that's 10 years younger. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. As long as it is maintained there will not be any issues. As of this review, I get an average of 30.5 miles per gallon and do the 3000 mile oil change. Other than that, the car is perfect.
I don't know why the description says fwd, becuase mine is definitely a rear wheel drive, and even though it might not seem powerful, the weight ensures that it can still burn out.
The old design leads to have a shabbier look. So if that's an issue, pretty up the exterior with some cheap paint and put in a nice audio system. That makes my ride all the more fun.
A 14 year old car with 344,000+ kms on it and revving just like the day I got it except a little faster on acceleration after a cold air intake and few maf / timing tweaks. A fun, reliable ride that takes beating and asks for little in return.
Decent acceleration, firm sporty suspension, low maintenance cost even with hitting a few curbs, bit of sliding, etc in comparison to other cars I've owned before (yes, I do trash them - no point A to B stuff for me - that's what buses are for).
More base power -- 20 valve SilverTop 4age... I wish I got the version with A/C and sunroof and less rust other than that - awesome package.
AN AMAZING CAR, very reliable, gave me
almost no problems, and i really beat
that car in and still runs amazing.
Everything is original, engine,tranny
and clutch. Also the car is pretty
fast, i was taking new civic SI, and
engine, very strong. very cheap on
need to work on fuel economy, sometimes
good on gas, sometimes not.
