I Love This Car, Runs Great And Gets Good Gas Mileage — There wasn't nothing I disliked about this car. It was small, but for a small family like I have it was great and as well as if you are a high school or college student it would be a perfect car for them.

Great Car — I love the car. I want to get another one, just a newer year. Car is good on gas only had to fill up once a week. Maintenance for this car is reasonable. Engine is very quiet and the body of the car is nice.

Pros

I saved a lot of money on gas by driving this car

Cons

This car looks ugly

35

My Toyota — The acceleration and handling of this car suck. The appearance is even worst. But this car is very easy to drive, even my mom can drive this car without any trouble on the road. This car is for old people only, not for young people like me. But I am to drive it anyway because this car is cheap, reliable and easy to maintenance

Great Compact Car — It gets great gas milage. I get great service at QC Auto Service, Moline, Il I've just gotten routine maintenacne, oil changes, rotate tires, etc, I love having a car I don't have to put a bunch of money in. So far, so good. Great performance, accereration, (except against a semi, or something big.) great braking, handling, and its fun to drive.

All Round Practical Car — Good safe, reliable, low cost car. Has style in all occasional event. The performs exceed well in braking, acceleration and handling. The overall appearance and performance,safety and cost value is truly everything that is advertised by the manufacture survey.

Our Sporty Toyota — I love our Toyota :) Great Car! Sporty & Great on Gas :) We have been so pleased with our car but the only thing that sucks is not enough room for all of us. 2 adults & 4 kiddos. Need more Room. But will go with another Toyota for sure.

Pros

Fun to drive, great gas mileage

Cons

only has a 6 speed manual, some people might not like that. I love it.

Xrs — 6 speed manual, 170 hp, great gas mileage, I average 27 mpg with a mixture of city and hwy driving. MPG is closer to 30 mpg if I drive alot of freeway. Definitely more fun to drive than a regular Corolla since it has a sports tuned suspension which is noticeably stiffer than the regular model.

Fuel efficiency at its best. Lasts forever.

Cons

Not a fast car. Don't think speed with this baby.

Everlasting Car That Almost Never Lets You Down. — Well built car, looks great in its silver edition. Could do 800 kilometers with on full tank if driven reasonnably. Driving position is excellent and the seats offer good support without causing fatigue. Acceleration ? What is that ? This is definitely not a car for drag racing. It is even considered dull when it comes to driving fun. You can't have it all.
