Very Well Made Car — The car was the first that I bought and I loved it! One problem was that the 2.2L engine sat at an angle, so the valve cover gasket was leaking, the power steering line was leaking, and there were various other oil leaks that come with age, the car was 14 by the time I got it. The driver door seal leaked also. But it was worth the time and attention!

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

Pros: Good looking car, easy to maintain, insurance was good, the car was reliable.

Cons: Mine was initially an automatic, with front brakes only, so I converted it to manual and got rear disc brakes as well.

Street Racer — I like that you can modify this car to make it very fast, but you cant use it off road and its very small and light. The trunk isnt the best in the world. I like the front seats, but the back is small and not spacy. You should put speakers in the back.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a reliable little car that has good steering and easy to drive. There are alot of parts for this car.

Cons: Its very small and has bad brakes and a bad trunk. Not enough space.

A Car That Was Too Ahead Of Its Time To Succeed — Great in the snow. good acceleration. Pretty rare car so you don't see too many around. This car was so ahead of its time that it failed. This car was the predecessor to the WRX and evolution except with two doors. Great in the snow, comfortable but supportive seats, good handling. Overall a very fun car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: i really liked the rarity of this car.  Only saw a few others the three years I owned it

Cons: I didn't like the lack of aftermarket support, but have to expect that with there not being very many of them on the road

Great Inexpensive And Reliable Starter Car! — I bought this car in 2003 after graduating high school and working fast food/going to college. I paid maybe $3200 but its 2011 now and it's still running. This car (knock on wood) has never left me stranded. I'm not the richest person in the world so I spent like no money in maintenance and sometimes was late on oil changes. It drove me on 6 hours trips from college to my parents house. Even though it is very old, I can depend on it. Toyota sure used to make good cars! I still have the car although I am looking to buy something newer. Sure it makes a couple rumbles and odd noises here and there, but it's a tough trooper. Great on gas. I wouldnt sell this car for anything. I might give it to my children one day, or else just keep it for myself. Only downside is that it is a little snug. Would not recommend for tall or big people. More of a teen or petite person's car. One of my pop up headlights got jammed but my dad fixed it. I had an oil leak and got that fixed for $200 ish.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gas mileage, easy to park in small places, dependable, low maintenance cost, cute

Cons: hard to see in the back, small, some noises from under hood, sometimes other people driving don't see you

My 90 Gts — The car has decent perfromance for what it is given stock. Minor upgrades will greatly increase performance though. I have had 2 and have not had many repairs. Very little actual problems with them. I love the exterior styling and the interior is ok. There are just a couple different things i would change. Cost isn't to bad. Some parts can be expensive and hard to get but gas mileage can be really good. You just have to take care of it and keep your foot out of it. I love to drive this car. Thats why i have had more than one.

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

Pros: the styling and handling

Cons: trying to find parts is hard
