1985 Toyota Corona GX 1.5 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Reliable and cheap to run
One window fell out as the bracket was rusted.
Slight oil leak.
Interior fan stopped working.
Incredibly reliable and cheap to run, but quite slow due to being a heavy car with a small engine.
It has lasted me four years and it has not broken down, and only once has it been to a garage to get work done (window).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have recently purchased myself a 1985 Toyota Corona 1.5L GX.
I have had a similar problem with a leaky boot through top left-hand corner of the back windscreen, and also my left passenger window decides to fall out whenever I wind it down.
I can agree that it does lack in the power side of things; 0 - 100 in around 25 seconds for me.
Other than those minor set backs, I find it a reliable car and it's very easy to drive.
