1997 Toyota Corolla AE101R 1.6L Twin Cam
Cheap, reliable small car
Speedo stopped working
Rear hatch popped open
Engine feels effortless around town and the ride is decent.
Problem with speedo and hatch were fixed by dealer prior to purchase.
This model doesn't have air conditioning, but is not really a problem most of the time. Vents seem to gently blow warm air all the time, even when set to cool or the fan is off.
Have spent some time in an automatic, definitely get a manual, the auto is harsh and uses a lot of fuel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
