1992 Toyota Carina GLI EXECUTIVE 2.0 from UK and Ireland
An overlooked gem
The car has been very reliable indeed.
So far the only things I have had to had done are a new clutch and a new set of tyres.
Very high build quality. Just as well screwed together as a lexus, and with the engine from the MR2!.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Why do so many people comment on the speed of the Carina. I own one with a 2 litre engine, and it is only quick over 3000 RPM. However, I wouldn't say it is remarkably fast, just OK.

I own a Carina myself, and I'd say: For the age and the price, the car is pretty quick. And one of the first "every man's" cars equipped with a 16 valve engine. But of course, its performance is nothing compared to todays cars.

I have a 1992 Carina Toyota 2.0 it is superb!! I (aid to have a new clutch and brake pads, but apart from that, it is an absolute diamond!
Large to park though, but an star buy.
