1994 Toyota Corona EX 1.8 from Uganda


Super car


I had problems with the engine and I had it re-done professionally.

General Comments:

I have driven good cars, high performance cars, both European & Japanese, but this is one of those super Toyotas. It has super speed/performance for a 1.8 engine and the starting power is super lovely. The booster gives it a turbo kind of operation and it's really good when engaged at 90Km/h. You will race most cars on a highway.

The most interesting part is the stability for a non sports car, the space and grip. I find it a better option amongst the Corona family.

1994 Toyota Corona GL 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand


Not fast or flash, but damn reliable


Radiator needed to be replaced at 150,000 K's.

Head gasket leak killed it at 283,000 K's, which killed it at the end.

General Comments:

Possibly the best car I've owned.

Had owned it for 18 years, and was driven every day and everywhere, and tackled all challenges like a champ.

Found it able to go 550-600 K's on a full tank of petrol. Which is pretty economical.

Body was hard and didn't pick up scratches / dings / dents easily.

Parts were cheaper to come by later on, as people sent them off to the scrap heap.

Easy car to learn how to do basic maintenance on - oil, spark plugs etc.

Wish they still built this car.

I agree with everything said in the previous review. I have had my 1994 2.0 GL Toyota Corona for about 7 years now, and it has been great. It's done over 205,000 kms now, always starts first pop, tows well, and has a good paint finish that still looks good. I would definitely recommend this car.

Also agree with this review. I had a Corona wagon throughout uni and it tolerated all manner of misuse. Overloaded flat moves. Unsealed roads and off roading. Floods. Delayed maintenance and never more than quarter of a tank of fuel. It was tough, simple and easy to maintain at home. I sold it still going (albeit tired) at 410000km. NZ new Coronas were comfortable and handled well. Chris Amon had a hand in tuning them for our conditions.

I have just acquired a 1 owner 94 Corona with just 132k on the clock. It is in immaculate condition and I have chosen to sell my 2009 Honda to run the Corona daily.

Nice car


I bought the car last year and I haven't had any problems with it so far.

Previous owner said there weren't any problems with the car and it was a good drive. And it certainly is.

General Comments:

Does anyone know if there are any modified Corona's (1994) out there? If so, please leave a comment.

I'm interested in tweaking my car for performance and style.

Here is a link I constantly visit. You may limit your search according to car make (in this case, Toyota) then model -- Corona. You can then specify your search further by year (1994) and... VOILA!

Be creative =) Enjoy.

Nice, big family car


Water pump leaking when purchased. Replaced under dealer's warranty.

LHS front door lower trim came off.

Knocking noise from the front suspension / steering (can't isolate the problem).

Headlights have turned yellowish. Toyota dealer says they need 1 month or more to order from Japan.

General Comments:

Car is quite powerful for a 1.6 litre. Compared to my previous car, that is.

Steering is light and responsive.

Parts easy get. Same engine as a Toyota Corolla (AE101,111).

Fitted 195/60 series tyres to improve the ride comfort.

Dashboard is dark brown in colour and looks cheap.
