should i buy this corolla?

i saw it on craigslist, not sure what trim, but it has the 1.8L 4 speed auto, not the 3 speed auto.


94 model, 211k on the clock, clean title, 1500 firm. a tad bit of scratches on the bumpers.

The milage is too high, and for 1500 dollars? No way.

The 1.8L engine is a 7AFE, which is an excellent engine, it provides both more horsepower and better MPG than the 4AFE (1.6L). Not that that 4AFE is bad. I have a 4AFE in my Celica. I'm not sure if the Corolla follows exactly, but the Celica switched in '94. You can tell by the engine size: 1.6L is 4AFE, 1.8L is 7AFE. If it is 2.0L or more, then it has a "sports" engine with extra power but less MPG. If it has a 1.5L then it is either very old, or a different engine series (not the xA-FE type).
