1996 Toyota Corolla SD 1.6L 4 cylinder. (4A-FE) from North America
The most reliable car you can buy
Brake line corroded and started to leak.
This car is just like its reputation says it is: extremely well made and very, very reliable.
This is one of the 8 Toyota's my family owned/ownes and just like the other ones, this one has been nothing, but great.
My family bought this vehicle because we only had one other vehicle at the time and needed something cheap that got us from A to B. This car does exactly just that.
Even though this car is only the base model, it is very comfortable and drives very well. The automatic transmission shifts very smooth and the steering feels nice and tight. There are no rattles inside the cabin and the materials look and feel very well made.
My sister rolled the car into a ditch last winter and totalled the car. We bought the car back from our insurance agency, popped the dents out (there was a lot of snow in the ditch so the only the sides of the car were dented) and got the car registered again. It still runs like a champ.
I would strongly suggest getting the standard transmission instead of the automatic because the automatic sucks a lot more gas and power.
I would strongly recommend this car to anybody who is looking for a cheap, comfortable and reliable car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
