Very Good Car — I love my car!!! It only cost me $400 and it had actually never been driven on the freeway. It gives good gas mileage and it dosent cost much to maintain. This car wa made for me =) I actually get alot of offers for it but I love it too much to give it up.

It A Great Car. I Love It — I don't like the American bumper they are too long,I prefer the Japanese type. The braking system is good when I upgraded it.yes its a fun car to drive especially when I am going side way. When going side way it really shows how well it handle.

Old School Rally Car — * Performance – acceleration, braking and handling just looks like an old skool rally car * Appearance – both interior and exterior styling still looks good till now * Cost of Ownership – gas and maintenance are not to expensive if you want to use for your daily car * Fun Factor – you can upgrade this car as you like i prefer to make this car looks like a rally car

Toyota Corolla Sr5 — Not very fast, it's old, but I like how it looks, and I think as I improve some of the parts it should be quite enjoyable to drive. I've had to replace/fix some things that have worn out, but all in all, it's worked well for me.

A Great Car — I'm the second owner of my Toyota Corolla Tercel. The first owner was a lady who drove it to church on Sundays, to work every day until she retired, made two trips to the East coast, and one to the West coast. She gave it regular maintance since it was first driven off the lot. Sounds like

Antique Corolla — It has lasted 31 years, and I think it will last another decade. With routine maintenance, the car surprises all passengers with better-than-expected acceleration and the maneuverability through traffic. A fun weekend car, but not expected to cross the country. Don't count on a spacious back seat, overall you'd be amazed at the durability of this car.

A Well Balanced And Easily Kept Car — The Toyota Corolla has the highest reliability of any car i've ever driven. This model in particular has run for 30 Years and is still going!!! For a young driver it is safe and shall get you from A to B without a hassle but, it wont get you there and 100mph. However the Fuel Economy, Maintenance, Registration and Insurance costs are very good for a first car buyer and i strongly recommend this carr for first time drivers and/or young drivers
