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

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.

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.

Great Little Car — I own an F-250, V10, gas hog of a pick up truck and when gas hit 3 bucks a gallon I bought an '82 corolla for 500 bucks.......uglyist car Id ever seen (rust looked like chickenpox) but it ran like a charm! Had a bit of trouble with the starter but I had it replaced very cheaply and now its unstoppable this little car is great, fun to drive,good on gas and now after primer and paint not quite as ugly as before!!! But still the type of car that would would make an "I love Bingo" bumper sticker feel right at home Since Ive been driving it I have had countless people offer me more then double what I paid for it

Reliability, low maintenance cost.

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.
