Toyota = Quality — We drove this car through a few 10 thousand kilometers. Old car, but still young, if u keep it in a good mood! That goes for the performance to! =) It isn't heavy, wheels are on the edges of the side, great maneuvre capabilities (if your suspension's alright...), gearbox is great!

Cheap to own, pretty reliable. Fun to drift.

Cons

Some parts are hard to find, and it's slow as hell stock.

1986 Toyota Corolla (ae86) Sr5 — Since it's an SR5, this car is much more economical than it is a performer. In a word, performance for anything other than drifting is absymal. Being a Toyota, build quality is excellent. Appearance isn't the greatest stock- it has a pretty high ride height, and could really use a lip on the trunk lid. Cost of ownership is fantastic: I bought it for $400, and am only $300 more into it for maintenance a year later. If it's raining, there is no other car I'd rather drive. A wet offramp makes me feel like Tsuchiya every time.

It's cage, its ability to drift, how quick it is down country roads.

Cons

No sound deadening

Much Better Than An S13 — Love this car. Has the T-VIS intake, has decent power and torque, but not until around 4k rpms. Love the 7500 rpm redline. Had a few issues but its smoothing out. Gas mileage is awesome. Great to drive, loves track time and getting rowdy on the streets.

Dont Buy One Unless Ur Willing To Make It Ur Pride And Joy. — Performance-Acceleration is awesome especially when u can get it to only weight 2000 pounds, handling is outrageous in this, takes 90 degree corners at 60 like nothing. Build Quality- Cant believe the amount of abuse this car can take. Toyota built this car to last for ever... Fun Factor- Is this car fun to drive? Hell yes its fun to drive, as long as you know how to drive it and what the handling characteristics are on the car...

Great Car That I Hope To Keep Forever — Really good through corners but not any where near fast in a straight line... Would have been really great with a 2 liter engine and a better gearbox. Cheap to run Simple and easy to maintain I build it from the ground up...

Right before registration the car, there was HEAVY PIPE LINE LEAKING!

Cons

Most of part

Just Transportation, Dont Expect Too Much About It. — Performance - Drivable. Quality - Heavy leaking(?!) with pipe line between engine and radiator. Appearance - Impressive! Cost of Ownership Mileage - 261500 km (165000 miles) Maintenance - Nothing on this. Fun Factor - Manual Transmission. That was only thing you can enjoy with this car

Get One...they Are Awesome :) — Performance isn't bad seeing as it's a 1.6, but after driving the Commodore its obviously just a little weak... but for what it is, it's great performance-wise. :) Build quality is typical Toyota... ie, excellent. I'm planning on beefing up the looks a bit, lime green paint, offset GT stripe, alloys, lowered etc, so it's got potential for sure. It does around 8-litres/100km around town and you can pritty much do any maintenence yourself so it's pritty much one of the cheapest cars out there. Insurance is mad aswell :P
