    The Car In Front... — Driving 400Km's around Australia in the Corolla gave me a fair chance to get to know the Corolla and over all it's a good little runner. Not sporty, but not slow, the 1.6 engine in a small body shell delivers a reassuring level of power for motorways and can hold the limit for an hour with no complaints. What could be better ? The air vents in the dash get lose over time, and the bonnet stay catch has broken off at some long past moment. Like all pre-owned cars it has rattles and bumps, things need maintaining... Over all. I liked it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Economic run-about with legroom and luggage space.

    Cons: The Air con smells a bit funky for the first five minutes. The parcel shelf warps over time and does not fit too well (but does still fit).

    The "yoda" — the preformance isnt the best because its a 1.4 but it is a fun car to drive and has a lil bit of acceleration to it. it gets 30 miles to the gallon which is great the interior isnt the best but the exterior looks nice.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: it is a japanese import and is really fun to see get cooler and cooler as time goes by.

    Cons: it is really small so wen i want to go somewhere with my fiends its difficult to pack them all in  there.

    Absolutely Wonderful — I bought my FX-16 pre-rusted from the original owner in 1996 at 126500 miles, and it was a wonderfully powerful highway car and zippy rolling country road car. It has driven far longer than I imagined it would. Now (2010) at 194000 it's starting to get a little weak, but still zips along at higher RPMs. The car has been extremely reliable and drives wonderfully. I would like to invest more money in prolonging its life, but the body rust started in New England by the original owner is now quite bad in spots. It will be a very sad day when I have to retire the FX-16. The hatchback is very wide and useful, and can haul a lot. If they still made this exact car I would gladly buy 2 new ones tomorrow and never need to buy another car for the rest of my life.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: zippy, reliable, useful

    Cons: Exhaust system rust in rusty states

    I Would Buy Same Model But With 1,6ccm Engine. — Very good engine and gear box but spaer parts are very expensive.Easy for handling, brakes very good but under full loads and often use lose power.Engine don't like sports driving and temperature goes very high so I must slow down. My engine type 2E 1.3ccm iz very good after 212,000km but carburator iz in very bad condition and I cann't find new for normal price in my country

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Price, good perfomances,low consumption

    Cons: Very expensive maintenance after 100,000km

    Perfect — not much hp but lots of torque. handing and braking are like driving a go kart. built to last 400-500,000KM way longer than any now. fair price and lots of fun to drive in all weather especially wet or snowy.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: 40mpg city and 50-60 on highway

    Great Car. If You Buy Any Car For Under $300, Make It This One. — slow slow slow. but its fun. and it never gave me trouble. the only problems i had was the horribly debilating rust. gas tank, break lines and the strut supports all rusted through. but that was because the previous owner drove it in the kootnays for 15 years and never washed the salt off. so if you could get a rust free example, i can almost guarantee that you will have a decent car to drive from a-b and further. although top speed was limited to 110 because it got scary past those speeds. strictly a city car. but you can't lose with a price tag of $0. about $200-$400 for one thats not rusted to bits.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great on gas, good first car.

    Cons: check for rust! its made of bloody metal and almost 23 years old.

    Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — Its absolutely gorgeous in almost every manner. The Corolla offers great handling and its body has held up for almost 23 years with minimal rust...this car is probably the best car I have ever driven...however mine is now modified and got about 40 mpg before my engine swap...so now it gets around 30 to 35.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Handles like a dream, wouldn't trade it in for anything.

    Cons: There really are no negatives...except for the stock paint...
