*Galant good car but Spare parts arnt the easiest to find, but overall a great car

*Bluebird, if you going for a Petrol then its okay but a diesel feels like driving a dinky boat

*Theres no such thing as a T190 series carina after 1995. what your looking at is a T210 Series but those fetch over 1.7M now

* Best bet for you is a AE110 which will fulfull all your criteria..

That said i am Confused on why a Lancer CK2 is not in the list.

I am agreed with Schffier and that is the truth, Carina/ corona better comfort over 110 and extra comfort come with extra price

Good luck

CK2 - Doubt you'd get 8.5kmpl on city traffic. It'll be more like 6-7. But then again I come from the land of traffic, Battaramulla. When not on traffic, does comparatively well on fuel. Around 12-13. Never really cared to measure. But this seems to be the case with whatever the loose calculations I've done to please my hybrid driving brethren.

As for spare parts, engine bits and suspension bits can be found. Never really had any issues finding parts in both these regards. Preventive maintenance is what I do. So I plan everything and spend accordingly. IAC, TPS issues with Mitsu cars are well known. Those gremlins are something you'll have to learn to live with.

Galant has independent suspension and the car comes alive when you point it at bendy, winding roads. It's just amazing what such a big car can accomplish. (My suspension setup is different. So account for that as well.)

I usually keep track of available body parts in case the need arises. Headlights, windscreens are available. I keep track of at least 4 sets of headlights and windscreens. There are at least 2 boot lids and a bonnet available.

My Galant is on Tein coilovers meant for Galants and I have an Original Equipment Front Strut brace and a rear spoiler. None of these came with the car when I bought it. So parts can be found. You have to know whom to talk to. :)

You can never go wrong with the AT210/212 Corona/Carina, but unfortunately even the pre facelift is above your budget. The 190 series is pretty old now. Like Schffier said the Corolla 110 is your best bet.

I'm just browsing through the older cars of the same era. Can an expert tell me what are the engine conditions of 20 year old cars like these. I guessing that these cars have done over 250,000 kms despite the millage.

P.S. also like to know about the condition of both manual / auto gear boxes of this much older cars.
