Corolla SR-5 Coupe
| ||Model||Corolla SR-5 Coupe|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Trunk is too small. Seats only 3 comfortably.|
| ||General comments?||I bought it in '97 with 113k miles. Since then, got the belts replaced at 120k, replaced the clutch, replaced the tires, replaced the struts, replaced the exhaust. Items needing replacement that were not normal wear and tear were the power lock switch ($5 at junkyard), sunroof belts ($500 - had to pay because the darn thing was stuck open!), and the AC ($500 including retrofit to new R114a cheaper and friendlier refrigerant). The engine runs like a dream though, and now that everything else is fixed, I can see this car going well into the 200k's. I can drive like a maniac at times, and this car doesn't even flinch, just takes it all and keeps on going.|
| ||Previous car||Nothing similar used, but I can't imagine any other '89 car with 147k miles holding up to my driving style...||
