Has it really been 31 years for the Toyota Carina? And yet, we see them all over the place even if production stopped in 2001. All of the Carinas you see on the road are either used Toyota Carina for sale that have been re-sold or driven by their original owners. If you talk to any owner of the Carina, they will attest that it is a hard vehicle to sell but only because they get so attached to the car. The used Toyota Carina for sale is known as a family car. In fact, they are being described as the “Most comfortable family car ever manufactured.”
Even better is the fact that these cars are very affordable and understated. Here are some of their most valuable features:
Space – In a family car, space is a luxury and so when you get it, treasure it because it’s not often that you find comfort in a family car.
All-Terrain – Surprisingly, the Toyota Carina can handle rough terrain like a 4×4. It can also drive well under bad weather conditions. You can depend on the Carina to take you to your destination in the middle of a rain storm and arrive safely in one piece.
Excellent Fuel Consumption – A family car usually goes all over the place so being able to save on fuel is an important factor in buying a car. In most cases, one a Toyota Carina is put on the market, it is sold almost immediately if it’s in good condition and the papers are in order.
Good Cargo Space – Count the number of children riding in the car and double the cargo space needed. Each child has an enormous amount of luggage from toys to pillows to entertainment and then to size as they grow up. You need a lot of space in your luggage compartment so you take long trips and not be uncomfortable or cramped.
Comfort – The seats recline and sleeping while on the road is never going to be a problem.
In the US, the Carina was sold for only 2 years because of the 10% tax law that was enforced. This is why there are not many Carina cars in U.S. soil. But there are importers bringing them in because the demand is there and the price is reasonable.
