My experience with 74. Okay let me try and elaborate
Practically, the car does not suit a person of my size i have to take the seat to extreme backward position to get in. Steering is placed in such a way that getting in and out is an exercise of its own person sitting at rear is left with almost no room if i am driving
The car is bouncy like anything and i have to be extremely carefull when going over speed bumps otherwise people sitting at back can have skull fractures.
Fitting in a music system is like taming a lion because its not designed for these type of things at all
Air conditioner throws air right at the legs of the person sitting on passsenger seat
seats are not confortable at front, They are small. Recilne angle of seats is a joke.
Engine s thirsty on fuel compared to modern cars. If you try and imrove fuel consumtion, its drive becomes that of a cart
Steering is powered (muscle powered)
But despite all this, i love to drive it because of all the memories associated with it
I love the quote on a website about this model of corolla
"if indesit were makingc ars, it would be like this"
For thse who dont know Indesit was a renowned Electrical manufacturer secilaising in fridges and freezers and was not for durability and reliability. And this thing about corolla has not changed much, Its reliable durable like a donekey but practically there are many other cars better.
