1996 Toyota Carina E 2.0 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Nothing after 66k apart from an over-sensitive alarm system (now fixed free of charge).
Very reliable large roomy family work horse. A pleasure to drive although I was given a 1.8 litre petrol Carina as a courtesy car during a service and I wasn't impressed with it at all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your comments on the Toyota Carina E were very good. I have a Carina E 2.0 TD GS. The only problem I'm having is the remote control won't open the doors and when I go to open the doors by using the key, the alarm goes off and the engine gets immobilized and so I'm unable to start the car.
Your survey suggests that this problem can be rectified free of charge. Would I have to take it to any Toyota dealer, or is there some other procedure. Please advise. Thanking you very much.
