Well the reliabilty is going to great, its a Toyota Handling is also going to be good, because its front wheel drive, and its light. Performance is pretty decent, theyre pretty quick, but Im not sure of the exact hp and torque specs.

Im pretty sure they were transferred to FWD in 89. 1988 was the last year for RWD I believe. Same with the Celica.
