The previous owners did not look after the car. I had basically everything go wrong with the car. After a couple of months of maintaining it goes great. Some of the things that were faulty are:
Torque converter (auto transmission).
Tx valve (air conditioning).
Once the car was fixed up it is very reliable. Starts every time and goes well for an auto. It could still go a bit faster but the next thing that will get done is a engine rebuild.
I recently bought a 2000 model Corolla, as I drive approx 3000km/week. I gave the 405 to my wife to drive, but we will be doing a swap. The 405 is the most comfortable car I have driven.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
