1996 Toyota Corolla Spirit 1.6 4A-FE from Australia and New Zealand
Great little car for running around
The headliner started falling off at about 81,000 km.
The clock light has stopped working.
The cassette deck acts weirdly sometimes.
I bought this car new at Lane Toyota in Glen Waverley in late April 1996. It has served me faithfully over all these years with nary a complaint.
Performance is acceptable considering it's an automatic.
Parts, if needed, are plentiful and cheap, as you can go to the local pick-n-pull and get the parts for chips.
It's easy to park.
Gets about 9L/100km / 26 MPG / 31 MPG in the city and about 6.5L / 36 MPG / 43 MPG on the freeway, so very economical. I would recommend the car.
Oh, and the seats are okay, and being locally produced, I supported local manufacturing at the time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
