1987 Toyota Corolla FX from North America
Greatest Value/Quality/Size Car EVER!
Sections of exhaust piping had to be replaced several times (not very expensive).
Rust had formed on all of the wheel wells.
This was a phenomenal car.
I put approximately 30,000 miles per year on this car and barely had any problems.
The gas mileage was excellent (30+ mpg city/40+ mpg highway).
I was able to reach speeds in excess of 110 mph on the highway (this is NOT recommended) without making any modifications to the car and, at one time, maintained a speed of 95 mph (also NOT recommended) for 4 hours straight without any problems whatsoever.
My baby could fly.
I have never (and I really mean never) seen a car handle better in the snow.
The car is very spacious both in the front and in the back. There isn't much room in the 'trunk' as most of the room has been allocated to the driver/passenger seating.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also own a 1987 Toyota Corolla Fx. It has lasted a long time, but rust has gotten to most parts of the car (which I have repaired). The gas tank & fuel lines and brake lines have been replaced. Radiator was replaced. I replaced the oil pan myself. All due to rust through.
