A Two Month Date — pretty good overall. you need to have it standard though. the car that built canada. great on snow and ice...you keep in the powerband and release while jacking a bit the handbrake. Look a lot like the first family car to practice with

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: economy

Cons: the shift stick look frecking ugly

Yawn — Performance - Lacks acceration, handles like it's on rail but, needs more power to be able to push the limits of the suspension. The Brakes work too. Build Quality - There's a few random problems, and 13 year old car that's in good condition hasn't been driven enough Appearance - Good basic appearance, doesn't stand out and that good to me Cost of Ownership - Costs more then it's really worth Fun Factor - this car is really dull

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

Pros: Cruising about

Cons: lack of power

Good First Car. — Acceleration is terrible, also, with the Gen 3 4A-FE engine, there are few modifications that can be done to it. The vehicle is comparable to a tank, despite the plastic bumpers, the rest of the vehicle is incredibly resilient. It's not fun to drive, it's just the kind of car you'd need to get from point a to point b. Decent gas mileage, decent acoustics for after-market sound as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economy

Cons: Performance

This Would Be Good For Saving Money On Gas But Thats It — this car is a piece of crap. slow, sluggish handling, jerky brakes, it's suspension was too stiff. the inside and outside looked the same. it was pretty good on gas but the steering was off a bit. the only way it would be fun is if it had a v-8.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: low fuel mileage

Cons: slow slow slow

Perfect College Car — It's a really nice car. The acceleration is very slow, however that's not necessary for a commuting car. The braking is outstanding, and I've never lost control of the car in any conditions. It's not the sportiest of cars, but it's the perfect reliable car for a college kid looking for a good life out of a car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable with good gas milage

Cons: Slow

97' Corolla Is Good For Starters- Overall A Fun Car — The color isn't the greatest, it's a tan colored vehicle. The overall best thing about it has got to be the SPOILER :) in the back. Otherwise its fine in the exterior. The interior isn't too bad, there is a wood finish inside on the controls dash and I have a custom stereo inside. The speakers are surprisingly great. I got about 156,000 miles on it, quite much but it still runs well. Maintenance is strictly annual and very spread out- really if you just change the oil, put gas in, and wash it once in a while, it will work fine. I NEVER sent it in for any major problems except for a tire becoming loose but that is because of its overuse :D This car isn't a speed racer but it is fun to drive because of its smaller size. I recommend this car to any teenager getting their license like me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: SPOILER :D, acceleration not that bad, overall really good feel and control.

Cons: Color is a bit of a drag, and the wood finish isnt the coolest on the dash, but its minimal.

1997 Corolla Bz Wagon — Love the car. Had it for nearly 4 years. Heaps of go for a 1600 20V Blacktop but thats good ol' 4age's for ya. 6 speed box is great and handles great with after market lowered springs. Sounds mean with a FGK stainless muffler

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Blacktop 20V 4age sings and puts out lots of go

Cons: 4th gear synchros
