    Great Corolla — The performance of this car is quite good for what is it at this age, you can get it up to 180km/h and still stable but braking could be a bit better, It is a very fun driving car best as fast town car, i love the appearance its a 20 years old car but doesn't really look old. the interior is very nice as this model is a SE limited so there 4 power window, power mirror, defog, heater/aircon, power steering and allot more. i drive this car like there's no tomorrow and it still hold up no problem.

    Pros: Great built quality, have alot of accessory good driving position.

    Cons: brake could be a bit better and they are getting old so there a bit of rust problem

    My First Car — My car is faded red and has many dents in it as i bought it off of my sister. The performance of the car is pretty shocking. It has a dodgy gearbox and the washer motor is buggered. It has only done just under 254000km and is still a realiable car to drive. But there is one thing good about it and that is the stereo.

    Pros: The Stereo

    Cons: The Dents

    My Gti — Well... as ive only driven it acouple of times now its hard to say, i can tell you though that when my other half drives (Rags) it, it sounds awesome and both of us end up smiling! Nightmare for rusting these though so constant washing n waxing is required. Apart from that.... nice little quick, good looking motor!

    Pros: Great performance and overall looks

    Cons: NOT very fuel friendly, prone to rusting... BADLY!

    Strong Beater Car — One Ugly Car but def handled nice. No major Problems with it. Took off for being an old junker. Wish i would have never gotten rid of it. Could do just about anything to that car and it would have a problem

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: being old and ugly

    Bmw 523 Stays In The Drivway All Weekends. — I have my old Toyota DX Estate for about 7 years now. I purchased it as a second car for running about and making various trips to our local re-cycling centre in Trim. This car is a 1.8 Diesel, it does not have any toys at all ( unlike my every-day BMW 523 SEi) but what it does have is total reliability and economy to run. With diesel prices rocketing here in Ireland and the price of cars up and down, this little car is slowly becoming me day to day car. The BMW sits in my driveway more and more. My Corolla does need a few jobs done on it now..clutch and a brake upgrade, plus some small bodywork jobs...is it worth it.? YES...and in time the BWM will be sold..nice car yes..practical..sometimes..but becoming too costly to own and run wth road tax here in Ireland hitting €1500/yr with new rules coming in. Watch that space..

    Owner for 7 years, 0 months

    Miles Driven per Year:3,000

    Pros: Total reliability...even with 190k..simple to own and maintain

    Cons: ehhhhhhhhh...could do with power steering...MAYBE

    The Car Is Reliable If You Take Regular Care Of It. — My car has great interior and the body is fairly straight. The only concerns are the engine is going out and the paint is oxidised because it was owned near the ocean.

    Pros: Great fuel economy and will last longer than most cars.

    Cons: The power of the engine is going out, mostly because it has very small tires and is nearly twenty years old.

    Pros: reliability

    Cons: preformance, looks
