Cons

Top Speed & Acceleration

My Whitebeauty! — Well, there is nothing that upsets me about the car apart from the fact that it only gets upto 110 MPH :( .... way too low for my liking :p Having said that, must say that the singapore model version of the same maker really flies n trust me I mean it when i say dis Apart from the speed, the car is near perfect in build quality, driving wise, its well balanced at high speeds n doesn't oversteer in the corners...real fun to drive!

My Corolla — The car is reliable and gets me from point a to point b. I like that I can get over 40 mpg. With gas prices today that's the only feature that matters.

Pros

excellent gas mileage; easy to maneuver; tight turning radius; sticks to the road

Cons

acceleration isn't the best; small trunk (only able to fit 2 12's and 2 8's); interior is very susceptible to sunbleaching and warping in extreme heat.

Great On Gas; Good On Looks. — The 2001 TOyota Corolla was built in a California plant by American workers. A reliable car with a small, but fairly peppy 1.8L VVTI engine, getting as high (from personal experience) as 41 mpg. The paint is in excellent shape, and it's fairly easy to repair. Most components are easily accesible under the hood, or underneath the car. Maintenance and upkeep are typical of any Toyota (tires, oil changes, brakes, etc), with minor need for major repairs. I've driven this car for about two years, purchased with 80,000 miles, it now has over 132,000 and has only had a Mass Airflow Sensor go bad, but still ran even then (just hard, and idle was rough). Body style was only out for two years, giving it a more unique look. Would make an excellent ricer car, or sleeper.

Pros

Doesn't use much gas

Cons

Looks cheap, rattles, takes forever to get up to speed, not really that reliable.

Worst Car I Have Owned — Well, It is a Toyota Corolla - not much to look at, not much fun to drive and not really all that reliable. Needed a new engine with only 82,000 miles on it. The interior bits and pieces rattle, there are no ABS brakes, and the ride is not all that comfortable. On the other hand the resale value stays fairly high, and it does not use very much gas. Yet I can't wait to get rid of it and get something a lot more fun to drive.

Best Work Car I Have Ever Owned — The car has been very reliable, I have had no problems. I am getting between 32 and 36 mils to the gallon depending on the route I am taking. The back seats fold down giving me about 8 feet of storage. I have treated the little car as a truck, a snow plow, and a personel mover for 6 years. Nothing has been better.

A Good Starter For New Drivers — Its good first car; and easy to manage. It is good for city trips and giving a ride to one or two passengers. Being a small Toyota, it means that it is cheap to run as well as high reliability. I've been hit twice by fail drivers and it is still running like new.
