Great Commuter Car — Owned this car for 10 years and nothing has broken. Performs well for a 10 yr old car. I plan to drive it another 5 to 10 years with basic maintenance. Very reliable car. I have heard from other reviewers that the paint is not that great. I would say not so much, my paint is still in very good condition.

Toyota — Toyota is a really great car actually, especially if you are going to buy a used one! They tend to have noisy heaters though, especially the older they get. And if your car is before 98 you will have a timing belt which needs to be changed around 150,000 km. 98 and up its a timing chain so those last forever.

Corolla Commuter Car — VE stands for Very Expensive Edition People. This car goes from A to B and back to B, but forget about Z. # Performance – acceleration is pretty nice not too much lag from push gas pedal down, braking is fair for a light weight car, handling is pretty solid and it parks really easy # Build Quality – has it needed repairs? Not many at all which is great for a 1998 # Appearance – looks like a family car, need I say more # Cost of Ownership – gas mileage is great 40$ is the max I have paid for a full tank, maintenance is low # Fun Factor – is this car fun to drive? Meh Would you recommend this car to a friend? Hells yes it is a great little car and is very economical.

First Car, Full Of Knocks, Rattles And Grunts. But So Much Character — Crap all round... drum brakes at the back, drum brakes!!! Those were used in my mum's first car.... No power at all, loaded with 5 people and you really have to rev that engine... which didn't liked being revved... But i know every detail of it and loved it... Was sad to sell it. But admit it was crap.
