I know we need to save the manuals, but this one wasn’t worth saving. Stiff clutch pedal, awkward shifter position with first gear way over at centerline away from the driver and up high, and stiff. Add to that an engine that wanted to rev up when you let off the throttle and an engine that seemed to have a uniformly bland power band. Great driver seat, nice light steering and a good ride.

I like my ‘90 Corolla better. Steel cable from pedal to throttle body, et cetera. They don’t build ‘em like they used to.
