Cons

seat for smaller, shorter people, headlights from on coming trucks/suvs at night

Toyota Reliability, Engineering, Quality Plus Chevy Value Equals One Great Car For The Money — What i like best is the fact thats its a 5-spd, which makes the car zippy in the city and for accelerating. Its no corvette but above average for small cars. The worst mpg i have got was 31 mpg during February when the temperature was -20 for two weeks. On the highway going to and from school and home going 55 i would easily get 40 and even 43 a handful of times. It being the base model it only weighs about 2500 pounds and stops pretty good (no abs) But, because it is a 98 without the stability sway bar, its not the best handler and the body roles in turns pretty bad, but then again this isnt a corvette or viper and i dont try to drive it like one.

Pros

great gas mileage, up to 36mpg on the highway

Cons

pretty slow; has lots of stupid "involuntary" features such as constant-on headlights, seatbelt sign that won't shut off unless you buckle up, and AC that cannot be turned off in some positions of the climate control.  Also had problems like broken stater, broken door handle, and engine smoke.
