I Like It Because It Was My 1st Car — Performance was lil bit weak but it was manual no squeaks no rarrles ... Its TOYOTA the interior and exterior are weak because its old japanness car i liketo drive from time to time it will never cost you and you can consider it as a life time car

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

Pros: Economic

Cons: Weak at acc.

Simple Of It — My car is about 139hp on dyno( the last time) now think could be only 12x. ...coz the ori engine has beeen pulled out to re-make it's hp. hopefully after this it can go up to 14x-150hp. Exterior i dont really mind...as in Malaysia, if your car is too nice to look, you wont' dare to bring it out. We got a lot of rascals on the road. My car is fun to have on the road as most ppl need to guess the make of it

Pros: yep

Cons: maybe now..

Great Small Car! — Great performance in acceleration, breaking, and handling. Great quality and value. Decent appearance. EXCELLENT GAS MILEAGE (almost 40 mpg) and low maintenance. The car had 150,000 miles on it when I purchased it and it is in great condition and running well overall I would recommend this vehicle to ANYONE!

Pros: Excellent Gas Mileage!

Cons: NONE

Dependable, Reliable, And Fun To Drive — This car is known for it's dependability and solid build, and my car definitely exceeds those expectations. Fun to drive, great handling (I can use one finger to turn the car 180 degrees around easily), speedy, comfortable, and good on gas (25 city, 32 hwy). For it being almost twelve years old, the body and interior are like new. The AC still blows cold, and it only has 113,000 miles on it. I love this car, and will keep it for many years to come.

Pros: Great Gas Mileage, Comfortable, Reliable, Easy and Fun to Drive

Cons: Slow Accelerator, No Rear-Deck Speakers

1996 Toyota Corolla — Bought it new in 1996. Reliable car, good gas mileage. 210k+ miles and it's never really needed much work *knock on wood*. I would help if the car had more power, it takes all of it's might to get onto a highway or pass a slow car. The best car I have owned so far.

Pros: Reliability, gas mileage

Cons: Underpowered

Ae102x Corolla Seca Csx — i love my car its got fantastic handling and the speeds alright. The performance is good for the price i paid for and it can take a hard and rought races and always lived the day without any problems. Interior is supurb and standard. Everything still looks like new and looked after. I would recommend and have recommending this model to people who are looking for a fun and reliable ride. Its fun to drive but not when you got alot of fat arses in the in the car crushing the suspension. LOL sorry guys Oh yeah and the cars got alot of potential too which im looking into atm

Pros: its reliable and will never let me down.

Cons: its not turbo and hasnt got any neons on it.

Slow But Kinda Respectable? — Well, sometimes you gotta work with wat you got, so this is it, my mom bought me the one of the slowest cars in the world. but im still putting money in it surprisingly. Performance mods include Spark Plugs/wire set, Short Ram Intake, and Air Breather. My next mods include exhaust system from the cat and back, and headers, then ill see wat else i mite want to do.

Pros: Well nothing really....but toss an intake on a 1.8L 7a-Fe and you get a clean sounding ricer lmao. but its also very realiable, i got about 25k+ miles on it, and ive only been through a couple of tires and a new battery. The car ALWAYS starts :)

Cons: seriously lacking performance, intake makes the car too loud, wen the car doesnt go newhere.
