Reliable — old piece of crap, getting a new one when i graduate college, decent acceleration, but has nearly 145k miles on it so don't expect crap out of it. Decent to drive, dead-pedal is located little weird for me, but i have long legs.

Nice Vehicle For Commuting; Not So Delivering A Bunch Of Newspapers. — I got this car after my Astro started having transmission problems; I was currently working for a screen printing company, so driving it to work was pretty nice. I didn't really care much about the car, since it had lackluster styling, but other than that, I was glad that it was a reliable car. I ended up losing my job, but this car helped me go around town putting in applications; it wasn't until November that I got a job delivering newspapers and that was when the Corolla started to struggle. It had a hard time hauling 300 lbs of newspapers, on Sundays and I wasn't able to afford to get anything fixed, the engine ended up blowing before I could get my first paycheck. I sold it on Craigslist to help save up money for another car.

Fuel economy, reliability, cool factor (because of mods)

Cons

Slow as balls

Cheap Thrills — I have put more miles on this vehicle in the two years that I've owned it than any other vehicle I've ever owned. Currently has 270xxx miles on it yet still runs like it's brand new. Vehicle virtually requires no maintenance. I just put oil in it every couple hundred miles and it keeps going. Perfect car for the money.

Pros

Looks, handling, space, 5spd manual, reliablilty

Cons

Could have used more power, 4-disc brakes would have worked wonders, 5spd manual not as crisp as I would have liked.

If You Need A First Car, The Corolla Is A Good Choice — Quite the reliable car, and with a 5spd manual it's fun to drive. Could have used some more power, but overall I was never disappointed with this vehicle. Excellent daily driver, good looks, extremely reliable and easy on the pockets when maintenance time comes. A great first car!

If This Car Were An Autobot It Would Be Optimus Prime! — Well my car has approximately 334,000 miles and I've literally changed the oil about once every 50K whether it needed it or not! Not kidding folks I treat my vehicles like crap. I took the car into a repair shot today because it wasn't starting during the rain and paid $100.00 for a new distributor cap. That's the FIRST time it's been in for anything (including oil changes) in the last 3 years. Doesn't anything else need to be said about a car that can stand up to that kind of abuse and still be dependable?

Overall, Its A Pretty Good Car. — Not a particularly exciting car to drive, but very reliable and great on gas (avg of 34 mpg). I Found out the hard way it's pretty darn safe in an accident too, which I wouldn't have expected given it's appearance. I was in a head on collision going 35mph and walked away with only minor injuries from the airbags. It was still running fine until its unfortunate demise in that accident.I have had to do a good number of repairs to it, though not devastatingly major ones. It had reoccurring exhaust system problems, but everything else was what you'd expect to have to replace in a 16 year old car. All in all I probably put 4,000 - 5,000 into a car that was super cheap to buy and lasted me 6 years (and probably would've lasted me at least a few more). For a first car, it was pretty great. I would recommend it to a teenager, student, or anyone who's looking to save money and have a reliable car.

1994 Yota — This was a decent car. It ran great, I put very little money into this car for maintenance cost. Even after we had an accident with the car it ran just as good as it did before the accident. I would highly recommend this car to any that was looking for a cheap, reliable car

Pros

Nothing so lovely yet. I'm just loving to work on it.

Cons

When the old guy under the hood stops working ;(

Something Beautiful Is Comiing Out Slowly! ;) — Acceleration, or may I say the engine power output is not so good due to the engine condition since it's 18 years old! Also because of the fuel we use, called CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) which decreases the engine power. Braking is good with all the stock equipments. I just changed the stock suspension to KYB Excel-G to get better comfort and handling. Needs a lot of repairs. Specially the body paint and some engine repairs. The exterior and interior appearance is not good yet. But I'm working on it and hope to make the best out of it.
