Love my cute Corolla


The carburetor had to be readjusted, but I suspect that's due to the fact that the previous owner (my grandmother) hardly ever went faster than 60 km /h.

General Comments:

I love my car!

It used to be my grandmother's who drove it without ever having any trouble for 19 years. She calls it the best car she ever had in almost 70 years of driving.

For me, it's dependable, economical and fun.

And, although being grey (and a bit bruised), it's ever so cute! Plus, I reckon I can start calling it "vintage" very soon.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am residing in NJ USA, I am still using the 1987 Corolla. It is very economical and reliable. Everyday I travel going to my work back and forth around 90 miles a day. Right now it is still doing good. What a wonderful car.
