1988 Toyota Corolla Levin GTV 1.6 4age from Australia and New Zealand
A fun, quick and reliable coupe
Clutch needed replacing at about 75000.
Brakes replaced once in the time owned.
Hand-brake cable will need replacing soon as it has stretched.
For the engine size, the car is a good performer.
The 4age is a strong engine and will rev freely all day.
I have had next to no problems with this car since I bought it.
I still enjoy driving it today and do not plan to sell it in the near future.
I have no complaints about the (Toyota) Levin at all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I fully agree with the review. I've owned a 1988 Toyota Corolla Levin since 1995, and it's a great car! Certainly have no intention of selling this car any time soon. Upgraded the engine from a big port 16 valve to a 20 valve Black top, and boy am I having fun. Hondas and Subarus hate me! Plan to give it a tweak with a pair of half race cams. Evolution beware! Just need to know the best supplier in relation to cost.

Hondas and Subarus hate you? Not here where it snows 350 inches a year... my Corolla can't be used 5 months out of the year unless I have chains on it. But my old Subarus keep chuggin', without chains, no problem...
