1997 Toyota Starlet 1.3 from UK and Ireland
Great first buy, highly reliable
The exhaust developed a problem within a year, but once it was replaced the problem never reoccurred. The strip on the side also got lose once, but when fixed problem did not reoccur.
There is not more reliable super-mini. I have not had a single problem with the motor, brakes or suspension. It is still (2005) going strong after 8 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
