    Are corolla lovelife GLi (AE111) series still a good buy nowadays? What can you comment about this car. Considering the car was taken cared of by the 1st owner.

    Thanks!

    Many people were disappointed by the small space in the "Love Life" Corolla as compared to the "Big Body" Corolla that came before it, but, personally, I think it's a better looking car.

    Fuel consumption of the carburated lower models are just so-so, but there are no major headaches in terms of maintenance, just the usual problems faced by old cars.

    Not that exciting to drive, and there are roomier cars from the same time, but the Corolla has a very European look, and Euro-look conversions are quite popular. It's a cute little car, and the Altis SE-G version was the first 1.8 liter car in the Philippine compact class... probably the best old-style Corolla you can still buy.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    The AE111 is simply an AE101 with different exterior and interior. Everything else like engine, suspension, etc. is the same. The only addition is a passenger airbag. ABS already appeared in the last batch of AE101s.

    We had the budget for this car two years ago but decided to get the older AE101 model instead, because it (1) looks better; (2) has more rear seat space; and (3) weighs less, which could translate to better performance and/or economy. And for me, the 101 is designed for the younger generation, compared to the 111 that is better suited for parents.

    It's easy to drive around and in the Euro trim it does look good. Space is a minus though (has similar space to the old B13 Sentra). As aforementioned, it did not live up to the expectations of AE101 owners.

    Barring any maintainance excessive abuse by the previous owner, it is a reliable and easy to maintain vehicle.

    I was also looking for one of those 1.8L SE-Gs before but they were either over-priced or abused units.

    agree with the previous posters. basically a simple, practical and a nice-to-drive car.
    i also like the euro look. may mga nakita ako nyan na pinapalitan yung headlights nila to a round, circular headlights.
