1988 Toyota Corolla SR5 Coupe 1.6 af from North America
Build quality you can rely on
Due to its age, the clear coat was dull/hazy; a bit of buffing took care of it.
Missing service records, so as a precaution I replaced all belts and water pump.
Replaced cracked steering rack boots.
Replaced rusted muffler.
Top part of the seat fabric is a bit faded on the rear seats.
I was very lucky to find this car, I got it from a dealer wherein someone traded it for a newer Corolla.
So far this car is very reliable. I drive it everyday to work. Whether it's summer or -30° C in the winter doesn't make a difference, it starts in one turn.
Very fun to drive, especially on corners, it feels like a small car yet almost the same length as a sedan. Gets to highway speeds with ease. Not very powerful, but gets the job done.
The previous owner got it rustproofed, so no rust problems.
Lots of trunk space. Head turner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
