How might you quantify 'improvement over factory'?

I assume half a million taxi drivers just had to settle for 'dealer spec'....

I will concede (given our poor relation status to the Celica.. lol) the handling is pretty sharp on a Carina 🙂

I'm hoping to film a comparison video soon, which will be released around episode 61'ish.

At the moment the car is handling really well, and hopefully once the interior work begins, I won't have to continue with my personal "taxi" duties lol.

As you say, the car handles surprisingly well from factory, but the hardrace rear bars are thicker and stronger, so offer less flex, I'll be fitting the rear braces this weekend, which will hopefully stiffen up the back end a lot more, and I'll report back 😄

Poondland spray-greeaz [... and/or 'White cycle chain lube' - depending on what the supplier prints on the tin! lol ] is my weapon of choice for Sunroof bowden drive cables + door hinges......

That's a top tip, I hadn't thought of Poundland.

  • 311 Hybrid Reliability

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
