1990 Toyota Corolla LE from North America
The unstoppable chick magnet four door tank
Currently the lights have a mind of their own. When I press my brake, all of the interior and parking lights come on. Also, when I have my headlights on, all of my brake lights stay on whether I am pressing the brake or not. At least I'm not going to get pulled over for a brake light being out eh?
Also one of the rear windows makes a horrible screeching sound when rolling it up or down. My brother has a 1997 Corolla and his does the same.
Other than routine maintenance such as new timing belt and brakes, nothing has gone wrong.
The corolla is a friggin' tank. Nothing can stop it. It has been in at least two wrecks that we know of and it still runs like a champ. It was rear ended twice. The first time we fixed it and the second I didn't bother because it wouldn't make that big of a difference in the resale value. So I just took the money and went to Vegas.
As for performance, I drive like a 78 year old woman so I don't really care about that. But sometimes I do wish I had my '89 Celica back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your brake lights stay on all the time?
NO wonder you got rearended twice.
Hard to understand how this car could be a "chick magnet" by any known definition of the term.

My Corolla the temp light would come on when the alt light came on, but I have seen older Toyota trucks the the oil light would come on when you opened the door. As for being a chick magnet, maybe the people rear ending him were chicks.
