Very reliable car
Bought a new 1996 Auto Corolla. One of the most reliable cars you can get. Ask yourself what is the most common older car you see still being used? It's a Corolla. Mine has no air bags and therefore wasn't part of the Takata air bag recalls.
Purchased in May 1996.
400 dollar win
this car is awesome very poweful for such a small thing very light weight toyota is very good for making cheap light weight cars that last a life time this car could have gone for ever and ever but sadly i had to let it go however this was the best car i have bought
Perfect car for the city
Perfect car for a busy cities like mesbourne, sydney and brisbane.
Fast, small, quick and reliable, is a car for those who need to deslocate on the crazy traffic of the biggest cities in australia.
Cheap in fuel, my car needs just 7 littlers of petrol to run 100 km
Can't fault our old 1992 Corolla Hatch with 5-speed manual. This was an extremely reliable and compact hatch great for the runaround and city trips. The drive was good, power was nice and fuel economy decent too, the suspension and comfort great. Overall this car was perfect for what we needed it for. 260,000km and finally sold, I wouldn't be surprised if this car was out on the road somewhere. Brilliant reliability from Toyota once again. Highly recommend a Toyota any day! Japanese cars are the greatest.
You cannot beat 90s era Corollas
Such a good little car. I'm now on my second Corolla of this era, my first was stolen and I was devastated. At 205,000 k's my little beast is still going strong, and I fully expect to keep her going for another 10 years. As a side note we use exclusively Toyota vehicles at my workplace and they are universally excellent. Would never buy anything else.
Unbeatable reliability, cheap to service and maintain.
Not super flashy looking, mine is an ugly colour
Four Corollas and never had any problem with them
As usual Japanese car up to mid 2000's - they were the most reliable cars on Earth. Even now I prefer to buy 10+ years old Jap than anything else and I have never had any issues with them. Currently I have just bought my fourth Toyota Corolla, all of them dated 1995-1999.
Always reliable. Always starts. Always stops. Fuel efficient.
Looking at it you can tell it's not a new car; also safety features are far better in current models
I have one of these and absolutely love it, except for getting out of it, at which time I feel my age! I have never had a single problem with this car and it is the third Toyota I have had. I went away from Toyota the once and would never do it again. This is a very reliable little car, suitable for males or females.
A sporty-looking car. Quite speedy and easy to handle. Plenty of head room.
It is a bit low and I find it a little difficult getting out of it. There is not very much leg room at the back, but plenty at the front.
I believe the price was very good and the size of the car was good. Practical family car and not difficult to service. Very easy to park and overall excellent in a city environment. Also use less gas when you traveling.
First thing I have to say that I have a Toyota Corolla LE 1999. (My fiancé had a nickname for it name pookie, of cause I would say I am pookie not the car ok Mr. :)) What is good about this car is excellent for people with family, it smaller in length, but you could still load lots of stuff. Its reliability. I will not hold back...
I will keep this car until it gets to the stage where it starts getting lots of problems like my previous Corolla, which was at the 200,000 kilometre mark. The only problem I've had with this Levin is a driver's side window that is stuck (power window), which is currently needing repair. When the time comes and I need a new car, I will buy a Corolla again, but probably a sedan as I think they might give greater visibility in the rear. I would recommend any Corolla to someone on a limited income (such as myself) as these cars don't break down ve...ry much. My previous car was a Corolla, so I did not hesitate buying another one due to their reliability (my current one is a 1999 Levin hatchback). This might be the fault of the person whom I bought the car off, but the bumper bar scrapes on some driveways. It's possible that the previous owner ordered a lower bumper bar. Anyway, I'm having trouble getting the car insured each year due to the bumper bar being cracked due to this issue. The only thing I dislike about the car is the rear spoiler which sometimes limits visibility when looking backwards. I also removed the headrests in the back seats as they were blocking visibility (I rarely have passengers in the back). I also suspect that finding secondhand parts for Levins is difficult as in my search for a secondhand bumper bar, everyone told me that parts are almost impossible to find.
