1988 Toyota Corolla LX from North America
Perfect car to surprise a Pontiac with
I needed a new radiator at 113,000 miles, and new brakes every now and then, but otherwise nothing...
Unless you count the strange things the previous owners of the car did to it, such as gluing a big plastic spider inside my shifting console...
The seats have worn a bit though, but the previous owner was immensely fat, so that could have a lot to do with it.
The shocks are excellent. The Corolla only seriously bounces when you hit a nasty bump.
Of course, it comes with the Toyota hallmark of reliability, and it looks far better than the boxier comparable cars. I have it in a burgundy color, which looks very sharp with the black trim.
Excellent gas saver - 20-25 miles per gallon in the city.
I love her so much, my next car is another Corolla. I'll cry when I let this baby go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
