1996 Toyota Corolla GL 1.3
Beware when buying an old car
The carburetor was faulty.
Rust on front arches.
This really put me off buying another old Toyota.
When I purchased the car I was in desperate need for a cheap japanese vehicle which I paid 300 Pounds sterling.
It was all I could afford.
I noticed the Idle speed was around 1200rpm. It should have been around 750rpm. The owner told me after it warmed up it usually went down, but it never did.
The worst part was that the miles per gallon was around 18 on the motorway. I took the car in for a repair which was £80. Sadly it was still the same. As I could only afford a used carb.
I was devastated. And ended up losing the car to the crusher.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
