1997 Toyota Corolla SD - special 1.6 gas
A classic and very reliable commuter
The only thing that has ever gone wrong with this car was a rear strut that needed to be replaced at 220000k. Its hard to believe, but this car has never caused a single problem - nothing! I still can't believe it!
With the exception of having to replace tires, brakes, filters, and general maintenance, this car has never needed anything. It certainly isn't a performance oriented car, but it has the toughness of a Mercedes Benz. I have a Chevrolet - its garbage. Forget US manufactures they're no good. The Japaneese know what they're doing and it shows in this car. This little four cylinder has driven from Eastern Canada to North Carolina, New York, Pennsylvania - anywhere you want to go it will take you! Make sure you undercoat, because they do have a tendency to rust. I will definitely buy another Toyota product - the quality is unparalleled.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
