The 1991 Corolla was a solidly reliable car that was also like a trusted friend
Early on, I had a situation that occurred twice where a spark plug actually shot out of the engine while driving. On one occasion where this happened, it left a dent in the hood. However, I think this was due to the Autolite Platinum spark plugs I used. After I replaced these spark plugs, this situation didn't occur again.
This is a very basic car. It is not the sportiest or most eye catching car you will ever own.
However, the 1991 Corolla is (or was) very reliable, and easy to maintain.
Despite a weird spark plug situation early on, my 1991 Corolla was a very low maintenance vehicle that just felt like it could run forever.
When I traded it in early 1998, it was for reasons of vanity, and not due to any forseen potential major problems.
I actually felt guilty after I traded it in, I almost felt like it was a baby I gave up for adoption without just cause. I still miss my 91 Corolla, despite the fact I now own a 2003 Corolla.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
