1989 Toyota Corolla Overview

Not much changed for the 1989 Toyota Corolla, since it had just been redesigned the year before. Toyota abandoned the hatchback FX and made the sedan available with All-Trac.

The 1989 Toyota Corolla came in many body styles with several trim levels. The sedan came as a base DX or better-equipped LE. The wagon was available as a DX or SR5. The coupe came as a SR5 or GT-S. All Corollas came equipped with a DOHC, 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine. The sedans, front-drive wagon and SR5 coupe had a carbureted 90-horsepower engine; the All-Trac wagon had a fuel-injected 100 horsepower engine, and the GT-S had the most powerful with a 115-horsepower EFI version. Fuel economy is about 25 to 35 mpg, depending on the engine.

Drivers of the 1989 Toyota Corolla all seem to have a story to prove its indestructibility, like the one about the Corolla that made it to Alaska from Atlanta and had no problem starting in either climate. Some drivers have had problems with alternator.
