1984 Toyota Corona GX Liftback 1.8 Litre from Australia and New Zealand
Great drive, but heaps of rust
The cambelt snapped at 250,000 kilometres.
The ignition module failed at 235,000 kilometres.
Replaced the left front CV joint at 265,000 kilometres.
The biggest issue was with rust, rust, rust.
The car drove extremely well for what I paid for it; $2500.00 NZ.
It was mechanically very good, but the main problem was the rust. I also live in a coastal area, so the salt laden air wasn't much help.
New Zealand has a very strict warranty of fitness system, where a car is examined every six months any sign of rust, and the car is rejected.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
