This car doesn’t have maintenance history. It doesn’t start and it has unknown and undiscovered issues. The only road this car will drive is the one to the crusher.

Very Comfortable Car — I love how cheap the gas is for this vehicle, and I can get home without using up the whole tank. I wants on the Cadillac CTS and I could not go down the block without losing hope what are the tank of gas.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a great affordable, reliable car

Cons: It's not a Mercedes

Good City Commuter Car With Occasional Highway Driving. — It's OK for keeping car costs down while providing reliable transport. Had it since 1997 and put 175,000 miles on it. Still running strong. Body and interior in good shape. Highly desirable car for people looking to save gas / money.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economical car to operate and maintain.  Very reliable.  Runs good on synthetic engine oil.  Low insurance costs.

Cons: Somewhat underpowered.  Need to turn off A/C to accelerate to highway speed when merging or climbing up waterway bridge.  Thought the 4 cyl engine would provide better gas mileage.

This Car Is Good For Everyday Use, Hardly Any Problems. — The only thing I didnt like about this car is that it didnt go very fast, it accelerated very good, But the top speed needs work on. The only other thing is that it heated up quickly with my driving, it might have been my radiator. or I just need to buy better coolant. Other than that this car is the best car I have driven so far.

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

Pros: Has allot of power behind it,

Cons: Wish it could go faster, seats are comfortabel, but they look ugly.

This Is One Car I Don't Think Toyota Is Going To Stop Manufacturing Any Time Soon. — This car actually accelerates really well and its suspension is nice and tight, so it handles very well. It was rear ended three years ago and held up so well that I was amazed at how sturdy and tough it was. It's a neat looking car, not too big, very economical. My Corolla is 14 years old as of last November, and the only major things I have ever had to do were sporadic but more labor intensive than anything. That tells you how well the car was built and regular care is a part of any car's lasting durability. The Corolla is no exception. It's mileage is great for such a small gas tank but it's very fuel efficient. I actually have a lot of fun driving this car. It's the one car I've ever owned that I just enjoy driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Efficient, tough and long lasting

Cons: No reason at all not to buy a Corolla!

Okay Car, Not Cool Or Big Enough. — Ugly turd. Wife loved it, I did not. It drove well but it was slow and had no kind of traction. It did not have much room. More for single women or teenagers. That is the only people I would recomend it to.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Gas milieage

Cons: Ugly and slow

Quality Car For Its Price — A tank of gas usually lasts me about 2 weeks. It's a quiet drive, and its just the right size for someone like myself who is 5'7. Its pretty comfortable and its not too high to maintain. Sounds system is pretty good too.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good gas mileage

Cons: None

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Granny Mobile

The Best Economy Car For A First Driver One Can Get To Date. — Performance: None to speak of. Handling neither. Braking was solid even though it didn't have ABS, ESC or any of the other goodies nowadays. Build Quality: unttopable. Appearance: It's good for what it is. Cost of Ownership: As little as you can pay for a car yearly you'll do with this one. No fun factor, it gets you from point A to B

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel Economy, Never lets you down, Reliability. Cheap Maintenance. Runs forever.

Cons: Handling and Performance (Acceleration on highways), fun factor but other than that, it's the best at what it does.
