1983 Toyota Corolla Liftback 1.3
Solid. Very solid. And very ugly
Even though the car was 12 years old when I bought it for next to nothing, I can't remember replacing anything but oil and brakes and such (not even regularly).
Two years ago the mechanism for opening the windows crumbled away and hence I was unable to open the right window.
The seats are poor quality.
The rear door is VERY rusty.
Pros: I've always had very old cars, that I usually had to throw away after two years. This one was different: It just kept going. The most reliable car I've seen so far.
Cons: Consumes quite some fuel. And it is very, very ugly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
