Carina E Vs Avensis

Recommended Posts

I know one T25 Avensis 1.6 VVTi and feels less robust than the much older Carina E 1.6 (mine, inherited at 240k miles, now on 280k miles).

Well, the Carina E was still made in JP (1993), and by that time the cabin materials were not supposed to be recycled...

Fuel consumption not any better, but of course Avensis drinks less oil and weighs more...

Steering and handling is sportier in the Carina...

I will keep it running as long as possible, and maybe after that :driving:

Isn't that the truth, cars just get heavier and heavier which does have a detrimental effect on performance,economy but particularly feel, handling etc. More and more power assitance built into the steering doesn't really compensate for tje extra weight... to my mind anyway.

I removed the towbar and associated ironmongery and now the a/c compressor and condenser along with all the pipework plugging up the evaporater. at the bulkhead on my Avensis to. try and shed some. weight :)
