1992 Toyota Corolla FX GT 1.6 from Australia and New Zealand
A great, reliable little performer that is surprisingly well appointed
Ventilation (fan) speed control knob broke off.
The rear hatch became quite heavy to lift, necessitating in the replacement of the hatch gas struts.
Quite a nifty little performer. Quick off the mark and great downshift acceleration when a boost of speed is required. (The jerky change from 1st to 2nd on cold starts probably the only complaint). Loved the "Power" option.
Terrific amount of front seat leg-room, but if you're short, the reach around for the seat belts can be a bit of a back strainer (though perhaps typical of a lot of two doors)
Well accessorised. This model came std with electric mirrors/sunroof/windows, Air-conditioning.
The interior was bland, but not unexpected for a sporty type car, everything is easily within reach of the driver and both the layout of controls uncomplicated.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
