Great Car! — love the reliability, but needs power locks and windows. great all around car for comfort, fuel economy. drives like a new car at 165000km. factory stereo with 2 speakers even sounds good still. everything works as new. we all should drive one

Pros

Solid reliable transport with a bit of go when pushed

Cons

It needed suspension work to get it through the MOT after 4 years so binned it!

25

Corrolla Power — It handled well but had a bit of body roll, the acceleration was brisk, 0-60 in under 10 secs. Nothing went wrong in my 3-4 years I had it. Solid reliable transport with a bit of Zip if you pushed it!

Consumer Friendly — small but very reliable, great on fuel economy. Doesn't look extrmely awsome but It's no where near a laughing stock. Interior's basic, but extremely easy to upgrade if you know what your doing. & Maintnance is never really an issue. Thanks

Gas mileage, Reliability

This Will Get You There, It'll Just Put You To Sleep On The Way. — Doesn't look like anything, doesn't perform like anything, but I put 160,000 miles on it in 6 years and never had to do more than oil and brakes. That's impressive reliability! It has no fun factor, and the back seat is abysmally small, but it's a commuter car, and in that regard it excels.

Very reliable

Cons

Loose-feeling steering

My Aunt's Toyota — My aunt's car. It's a fine car - my only quibble is that the steering and pedals don't give you a whole lot of feedback. There's also no cruise control, but this is admittedly not much of an issue on the PEI roads where this car is driven. Strengths include an excellent factory stereo with an analogue volume control (so that there are theoretically infinite volume settings instead of set levels that are sometimes too far apart).

Manual gear box, i love it.

Cons

Appearance terrible

My Ride — Acceleration nice breaks make a very fun sound when applied. Solid body but colour wears out quickly. Interiors,exteriors are terrible, alot of dust due to off road driving. Gas consumption excellent and maintenace costs low. Manual, i love it.
