1987 Toyota Sprinter Apex Trueno 1.6 DOHC from Australia and New Zealand
Very quick car; comparable to the likes of an MR2
Exhaust started to leak around 215000 K's.
Water pump needed replacing at 220000 K's.
Tensioners for cam-belt needed replacing after 220000kms.
Goes through front tyres a bit quicker than other front wheel drive cars.
Car has superb braking. Four wheel disc brakes, no ABS and a very light car, means this stops very very quick.
Great torque from the engine. Great for towing and getting over the mountains, Southern Alps etc.
Adjustable suspension. You can adjust between Soft, Sports and Hard, and it works superbly.
The manual gearbox is great. It is very strong, and easy to shift through the gears.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
