Pros

Did a Corolla just over take you?  Yes it did.

Cons

reliable = dull

Some Cars Just Don't Fit. — This is a very reliable car, it is hard to find another car as reliable as a Corolla. Usually when you think four door sedan, you think of three speeds slow slower and stop. Not so much with this car, in fact it is quite possible to leave that pack and go lone wolf. Which is where you will spend most of your time. There is no spark to this car and is straight out average.

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.

Pros

Even a lemon like this one was pretty reliable....

Cons

By reliable i mean, had to change brakes and oil a little too often.

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.
