yeah so i have a beat 89 corolla dx. its got a little p.o.s. 1.6l carbureted 4 banger. one day i snapped a belt (needed to be replaced anyway, im just lazy). i go and get the belt, put it on. all is good. i crank the engine with a friend checking everything underhood. ok. engine starts, smoke starts pouring from under hood. i kill it and ed says "your water pump won't turn" ......ahh ****. i bring it to the shop to have it fixed and the dude puts it on the lift. they get it running and he tells me my friend is an idiot. the water pump is fine....my oil pan is dripping on my exhaust, hence the smoke. damn, now instead of what i thought would be a $200 repair i have to shell out 500

i hate my toyota

Its an 89 ,be happy it still runs
Getting an old VW won't help things either

A Mk2 has a stronger body shell than an equivalent Toyota of the same era, Mr.Potencia VAG basher.

the car is 14 years old. what do you want? A magic carpet?

Yeah! For once I agree with Spaghetti Part 2. Some people think car's should just run forever! The funny thing is Toyotas nearly will, but every now and then (like after 15 years) you will have to replace something.
Stop yer whining!

No, it really doesn't. Mk1s and Mk2s are tin cans. The Mk2 actually has a weaker structure than the classic Beetle, I've seen the crash test pictures to prove it. But that wasn't even the point of this thread...

yep. and what about early VW reliability issues that plagued them and prevented them from strong sales in the 80's to early 90's? hmmm

Boohoo, my friend and I screwed up my 15 year old Corolla but I'll blame it anyway. Your Toyota sounds more reliable then your friend.

Re: YOU suck (Hostile)

Damn... Don't buy a VW if you're frustrated with the Toyota. Stick to Hondas and Volvos, they're the only cars that I can think of that are higher in reliability than a Toyota.
Oh and has your trunk started to leak yet? Everyone I know who's owned an 80s Camry or Corolla has had a leaky trunk... so if it has happened yet get ready to ----- some more.

Ok... so you blame Toyota because you do not maintain the car properly
