1996 Toyota Corolla Spirit 1.6 4A-FE
Great little car for running around
The headliner started falling off at about 81,000 km.
The clock light has stopped working.
The cassette deck acts weirdly sometimes.
I bought this car new at Lane Toyota in Glen Waverley in late April 1996. It has served me faithfully over all these years with nary a complaint.
Performance is acceptable considering it's an automatic.
Parts, if needed, are plentiful and cheap, as you can go to the local pick-n-pull and get the parts for chips.
It's easy to park.
Gets about 9L/100km / 26 MPG / 31 MPG in the city and about 6.5L / 36 MPG / 43 MPG on the freeway, so very economical. I would recommend the car.
Oh, and the seats are okay, and being locally produced, I supported local manufacturing at the time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
