Ugly, slow and yet pretty good!?!
Nothing has gone wrong with it. That includes when my grand father had it from new.
I really thought I would be slating this thing as I do not like Japanese cars as a rule. I find they are very overrated and fall short of European cars in many ways.
This Corolla is in many ways just like the rest. For a start it is probably the ugliest car ever made. It is so ugly you need to crouch down when you pass people you know in the street! This one is particularly bad because it is purple.
However, I have now been driving it for two weeks and have found I quite like it. This is mostly down to it being an automatic, the first I have driven.
The car itself is pretty slow, however I can get 70-80 without too much difficulty. Unlike most slow cars I have driven it isn't frustrating. It is very relaxing and easy to drive. For such a simple car is really does offer an effortless driving experience. It would be an excellent commuting car if the fuel economy wasn't so bad (it is only a 3 speed).
My final view is that it is fine, but there are probably better cars of this type out there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
