1994 Toyota Corolla RV 1.8 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Great 1st car, goes hard
Air con tube disconnected. Had to have it re-gassed.
Rear hatch doesn't open unless the tab is pulled the same time you open the boot. Getting into the back is a two person job.
Sometimes when I lock the car, it continues to lock over and over. I can stop this by locking the passenger side door from the inside, but this hardly happens.
Pretty much best P plater car out!
It's powerful, and owns all my mate's cars.
It has GREAT suspension and top braking (four wheel disks). It is unbreakable.
I am a massive rev head, and getting it sideways is easy.
I've put on a sports pipe, which makes it sound as hard as it goes.
I would keep this car forever if it was rear wheel drive.
With some small mods, such as rims or lower springs, it looks mean and no longer like a grandma's car.
It never gets hot. I would race my old Corolla (same model) on a race track for 4 hours straight, and it never moved from halfway. The old car didn't fail, the driver did (LOL).
Great on fuel. It gets 400km a tank for me. But if driven carefully, it could get 500km.
The seats are a tad high for my liking, but can be adjusted endlessly. It has power windows in the front. Sorta seems funny not to power the rear ones too.
The backseats aren't the best for big friends, and the rear seatbelts are always jerky.
Great storage. I go camping in mine, I remove the rear seat and fold down the back, and it is (relatively) flat. Fits a double mattress like it was built to.
Love the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
