ZZE122R Wagon


Recommended Posts

Hey Peeps,

First post and yes i know where the search button is.

I just need some advise, i currently own a 91 Cressida which hasn't given me much trouble so far. It's dual fuel so there isn't much boot space...

Anyways me and the wife are expecting our first child next month and i'm looking to get a roomier car that's good on fuel and under 15K. (closer to 10k if possible)

I've come across the Corolla Wagon and wanted to ask some questions about them.

- Are they Jap or SA built?

- Are they actually roomier than the hatch/sedan?

- I can't find one with power windows in my price range, would it be a major hassle to get them done? (I would like to be able to lock the rear windows so that later on the bub won't open them)

- Are the suspension components and chassis the same as the hatch/sedan? (I'm planning to do some minor mods later on)

- Has it got child seat locking points?

Thanks,

Dennis

- Are they Jap or SA built?

A: Earlier ones could be either, later ones were all SA

- Are they actually roomier than the hatch/sedan?

A: Only interior difference is the boot, but passenger space is the same

- I can't find one with power windows in my price range, would it be a major hassle to get them done? (I would like to be able to lock the rear windows so that later on the bub won't open them)

A: Best to spend a little more and get one with the power windows.

- Are the suspension components and chassis the same as the hatch/sedan? (I'm planning to do some minor mods later on)

A: Exactly the same.

- Has it got child seat locking points?

A: It has 3

Man a big Thanks for that!

I just had a quick at Redbook and it's states they are Jap built. When you mention "later ones" which years are you refering too?

Yeah i understand what you mean about spending a bit more, but the problem is that i'll have to go for a Levin to get rear power windows. Is it really worth the extra outlay?

some of the hatchbacks were sourced from SA but all the wagons are from japan.

Even the post facelift?

yep, for what its worth i have a Jap built wagon in the driveway, its an 02 model we got it when they first came out.
