Good Commuter — This car is fun to drive reminds me of my Geo Storm GSi now only if this was that that it would be a blast to drive, only trying to find another one is like a needle in a haystack.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: mpg & what it costs to fill up.

Cons: too small for tall people.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very reliable, good economy, just keeps on running!

Cons: Not a lot of power.

My True Friend Indeed — in turns of perfomance considering the model is pretty much satifactory, the accelaration is smooth, brakes are soft for an old car and handling is not bad,minor dent on the rear left boot needs a new paint, looks more like a police car neat! it is very economic friendly,

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love my car, it is very economic not costly at all and not too much nor too less, perfect for a burn out economy.

Cons: no hate but much love

Toyota Still Going Strong Since '96 — Performance - slow acceleration, handling is solid, motor is reliable Build Quality - almost never needs repairs Appearance - all the paint is on it and there are no dents, but the trim is falling off Fun factor - not much of a wow factor, but it is a manual transmission Mileage - around 217,000 km

Pros: Manual transmission, very reliable

Cons: Not a performance car

Amazing Car. Nothing To Say Against It, I Love It. — The performance of this car has met my standards. For a 4 cylinder it accelerates fairly fast, braking is great, and it takes corners like it's no problem. The only thing repair-wise I've done to it, is the brake lines, and a battery. But those are just things that go with time. I've been working on my car, improving the look slowly, but even without it, so a little reliable car, it's really nice looking, and the interior is awesome. I just don't like that the AC adapter is right under the drink holder, so when I have a drink in there, it blocks the socket. Cost of owning this car is cheap. I bought it for 2800, and it's cheap insurance, and I get over 500 km per tank, with next to no maintenance. I think this car is a lot of fun to drive. I'll have a hard time ever getting rid of it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Hardly any repairs

Cons: No 2 door.

Enjoyable To Drive, While Saving On Fuel And Repairs. — The 1996 Corolla accelerates quickly, brakes well, and handles the curves nicely. The engine runs very well and has not needed very much in the way of repairs. It is noisier on freeway driving than the Toyota Camry, as it is not as insulated. The appearance is of a practical car but a little bit sporty as well. Cost of ownership has been very good. This car is fun to drive and it maneuvers well.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handles well, very good mileage, fun to drive

Cons: noisy inside on freeway
