1995 Toyota Corolla DX from North America
Reliable, but nothing more!!!
Alternator went at 100,000 miles (as I was told).
Bearings began squeaking at 140k (never fixed).
Interior passenger door handle broke off at 160k.
Starter was replaced at 170k.
A/C has never worked.
Amber/corner lights also have never worked.
An extremely reliable car, but not a lot more! You will get what you should expect with a Corolla.
My problem with the corolla is its extreme lack of stability! Particularly on the freeway, I can't say I feel safe in this car. And when its raining outside I find myself driving like a grandmother. My head almost touching the windshield desperately trying to spot any upcoming puddles of water to avoid the frightening feeling of hydroplaning.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Uhm, a set of new (er) tires will help alleviate your problems...it's not rocket science!

Oh; I have a 1993 Geo Prizm (which is the same thing as your Corolla) and I love my little car. I call it 'the road warrior.' I don't have any problems in the rain or interstate.

LMAO! You mean you buy an 8 year old car, own it for 4 years, drive 70,000 miles and cry about basic repairs and being 'scared' on the freeway... wow... get a new car next time.
