You will not believe this! Nothing wrong with this car.

General Comments:

Probably the best lo-end car in the world. It has classical Japanese design (it's better to call it "design", because Japan cars all have one face) but sexual at the same time. Carina is the best choice for city driving, not for highway one. This engine is quite weak for high-speed driving. Moreover its noise isolation is weird.

Only minimal maintenance is required - filters, oil + fluids. NOTHING MORE. I'm in love with my TOYOTA Carina.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
