The fan to the air-condition only works at the two top speeds. This makes it very noisy.
The rear suspension gave up after 170000km.
This is a very reliable car. It is not very comfortable, but it takes me from A to B without any problems.
It does not need any maintenance, apart from new oil and oilfilter once a year.
It does not drink a lot of fuel. 7,3 liter / 100km.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1975 Toyota Corolla KE20 1.2
As reliable as rust
Rust in fenders.
Brakes front and back done at 130k.
This car has never failed me, it starts at first kick in -25 celcius.
Transmission is smooth like cream.
It rides low so it feels fast but is not = safe driving.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a 72' KE20 Coupe, its my bush basher, sat down the back since 1992 (still has rego sticker), spent 20Min on it and went for a drive! Has same points, leads, and belts since last serviced in 1987! I like the solid radiator they have. Just an excellent fun bush car to drive - light small and "noisy" with no exhaust pipe. Geeze those 3K Engines make some noise! Also own 2 other KE20's, a KE36 and a KE38 with Aircon and 4K in it. GO! THE 'KE' range.
