1994 Toyota Corolla DX 1.8 from North America
Great car. No regrets
Master cylinder locked up all of my brakes. The previous owner put automatic transmission fluid into the master cylinder and caused the lines to expand.
The radiator had a small crack in it, I replaced it.
The driver's side interior door handle has cracked, so it's loose and I have to grab it a certain way.
Glovebox is TINY.
Exterior passenger door handle has broken off.
Trunk will not open because the latch is broken somehow. Just happened in the last few months.
I also had to replace the strut mount because the previous mount dry rotted (20+ years old).
FANTASTIC car. It has carried me cross country in the rain or snow. It's sitting at 207k and I'm about to replace the water pump and timing belt and expect another 100k out of it. The inline four engine is rock solid and will not present you with any major problems, but you will have to maintain it.
I'm 6'2 and fit comfortably in the car with all of my friends in the back. I bought this car for 1200$ and it was a great decision. It is good on acceleration given the class of car, drives smoothly, and handles turns well. My next car will be a Toyota Corolla.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
