Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla
I've just bought a second hand car (right-hand drive), a 1997 Toyota Corolla G-touring Station wagon, 1300 automatic transmission, and I noticed that when I put the gear in reverse, the car would still move forward. Our driveway is sloping downhill so the car is also pointing downhill. I still have to use the hand brake before I move the car.
I remember I use to have another matic vehicle but it does not do this. Is it normal for a car to do this? If not, what could be the problem. Is there anything I should be looking out for with this type of a car? I also feel that the power is not that great when driving it, but perhaps it's just due to the 1.3 liter gutless engine..mileage is 129,000km.Hope you can help me out! Cheers!
You said it 1.3 litre engine,great cars very economical ideal for a shopping basket
