It's a great car if you want a gas efficient family car.

Cons

The only problem with my Corolla is that its headliner fell off.

Great Early 90s Family Car! — Performance is decent, it goes 0-60 in probably 6 seconds. The Corolla's appearance is nothing special which I like. The build quality is also decent it only needed repairs on the exhaust. Its a fun car to drive since it can out run a Kia.

Amazing — Amazing sexiness!!! It may only be a 1.6L 4A-FE but damn this thing pulls at 3,000RPM! I used to be a true blue Mazda enthusiast but this car has made me question my loyalty o_O! I suppose you could say I have ventured to Toyota now. I never thought I would say this but I love my Toyota Wagon, its a beast!

Pros

MPGs, Handling, Reliability.

Cons

Other than it being old and having no frills... the seatbelts, I'd prefer a standard 3-point instead of a automatic shoulder with manual lapbelt.

Beast! — This car runs great, 21yrs old and it's still going... just had it checked and all it needed was a tierod and the battery was shot. Its a real beater, but keeps going strong.... Love it! I got it with just over 159k on it. I've already put over 1k miles on it in about a months time. Back and forth 70miles 3 days a week for school, trips to friends all over and to NY too... Sweet!

Needed Replacing — The thing was notoriously crap. Suspect handling, suspect build quality, suspect performance, but the brakes were good. And so was the stereo, special thanks to me and Dannel. 3 crashes in the 3 years I owned it, one my fault.

Great Mpg — excellent reliable transpo but it is ugly, great gas mileage.handeling is sketchy. first gear a little too low but gets out in traffic nice from a dead stop. so so interior. good metal no rust.needs wider tires than stock ones.

Doesn't break, ever!

Definitely Provides — Perfect family sedan that deserves respect. We used this car as a family, and when I say family, I mean everyone in the family used it for several years taking turns. The only problem we had in 11 years was a snapped carburetor belt in a long distance drive. And then of course there was me, the last family member to drive it. It was totaled in an accident I had and needless to say losing this car really did hurt back then.

Good pick up, low mileage

Cons

Lack of cruise facility and sunroof

Toyota Corolla — It had excellent acceleration and handling..... But once the brakes failed... It rattles quite frequently but this does not affect the performance.... It's Silver in colour and it suites the car best.... It had low mileage AED 5o full tank and demanded maintenance only once in three to four months.... It was a lot of fun to ride this car and could seat upto 5 adults and 3 kids... I wish I could recommend it to a friend but............. it's engine caught fire and we had to scrap it..

Like Driving A Matchbox — This car was very dependable (mostly, until the head gasket blew) and got great gas mileage. However, the motor was very weak, and struggled at highway speeds. The interior and exterior were both very cheap and i didn't feel safe in this car at all.

An Excellent First — There are many things a man looks forward to in his life, and they are always special. This being my first car, it was no exception. As a performer, it's nothing special. this being a regular Corolla, it was powered by a pitiful 1.6 105 HP 4A-FE mated to a 3-speed auto gearbox. Even with all those years under it's belt the Corolla was able to get out of it's own way, but passing required a little forethought. Carrying more than 2 people, or any heavy load, pushed the little 4-banger to it's little limit as well. build quality was what you'd expect of an older car. some things didn't work, and some things worked some of the time. The seats were faded and worn, and everything was loose. Overall cost... well, here's where things get hairy. The car was originally $1100, but shortly after it needed a new engine due to the PO's neglect. Over the 2 years I owned it, things would die in 3 month spurts. first year it was engine, muffler, bodywork. Second year was starter, alternator, CV joint, and Transmission. It wasn't really all that good on gas as you would expect from a small car, averaging a silly ~28 mpg combined. It still had some good points though, as cheap beater, it was fun to drive in the twisties. Decent handling and a little pep helped, and the overall feel that a tiny car with no safety features brings did as well. It was old, tired, weak, didn't have much room, and was an money pit, but I loved her all the same.
