Reliable, comfortable and simple


Except a leak in the trunk nothing much bad about this car yet.

General Comments:

This is a Corolla GL with automatic transmission/AC and with automatic windows/door locks etc.

It handles pretty nicely and thanks to the automatic transmission it is pretty comfortable in the city, especially if you are driving in Turkey :)

However it is not pretty much efficient on the road since it is not too skimpy on the gas consumption.

One thing I can say about this car is it is reliable.

If you are wondering why I would think again buying it again, I think there may be cars out there with more gadgets (even a simple cup holder would do) for better price.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
