This Car Is A Must Drive Expierience, Great Fun, Relaxing And Takes You Back To The 1970's — I like the light feel of the steering. The engine is a 1300 but has a nice crisp sound to it. RWD make's the car real fun to go dirt drifting. seemingly unbreakable motor and gearbox. done over 250k with no trouble. I dislike the availability of parts for this car, panels are not an issue, but the little detailed items such as interior are hard to come by. As it is getting older it is getting more and more rare. Great car to look at. It is a Coupe my model. 4 speed manual. great fun to drive am always smiling even in the event of road rage. Mileage is great being a 4 cylinder, 400 kilometers to a tank of 40 liters. Maintenance not much required, just your usual service. which you can do your self because the mechanics are so simple to work on. you cant stuff up hehe

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Awesome — This is an amazing car, i had the 1600 sprinter that came out with thwin carburetors. The handling is absolutely amazing. Being such an old car it has its ups and downs. Should i get another one i would not sell or swop it even if you wanted to give me a SL55

Wish They Made Them Like This Now. — These Corollas were the very definition of cheap, RELIABLE, and economical transportation. This was the beginning of the end of Detroit dominance.

Acceleration — I really like driving this car. It's great on gas and very very dependable. It does have a very stiff accelerater pedal but if you push it to the floor it will get up and go. The other issue is that the front end sits too low for my tastes. I put on new struts but that didn't improve the problem. If anyone can tell me the least expensive way to raise the front end I'd appreciate it. Hiram (donandhi@verizon.net)

Inferior To Previous Corolla By DavidH25
