This Is My Brother's Car — Though the body has fallen to bits, the engine still runs strong. He has taken it from Washington to Iowa and down to Arkansas many times. It still runs! He bought it used in 2005 and it has been through alot! It may not look pretty (especially front passenger fender (dents and rust) and the door handles may lock you in, snap off, or disolve in your hand, but the engine runs strong and doesn't stall, die, blow up, or even cough.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The engine just runs...and runs.. Drives everywhere!

Cons: door handles inside and out break constantly, window cranks are hard to use

'98 Toyota Corolla — My sister handed down her car when she went off to college and, besides the basic maintenance every car needs, this car hasn't needed a thing. A slight leak in the hydraulic power steering line is the only problem this 14 year old car has had. It has run through many 'a tire but it's one of the funnest cars I've ever driven.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Pros = Great car, easy to maintain, fuel efficient, fun to drive.

Cons: Cons = Not the sexiest car. But that never stopped anyone.

Consumer Friendly — small but very reliable, great on fuel economy. Doesn't look extrmely awsome but It's no where near a laughing stock. Interior's basic, but extremely easy to upgrade if you know what your doing. & Maintnance is never really an issue. Thanks

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's very reliable. 12 years and still running perfecto

Cons: It's weak, I like power & torque. This has neither

1998 Toyota Corolla 4 Dr Ve Sedan — Performance: Reasonably nippy for a 1.6, brakes good, handles good on lowered suspension and 17" alloys. Build Quality: Very Good, even air con worked well. Appearence: Sits well on big wheels and low suspension with subtle TRD bodykit. Cost of Ownership: Cheap to run. Fun Factor: Lots of fun with very loud exhaust setting car alarms off.

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

Pros: Drives well, not a car you see modified very often.

Cons: Granny like image on standard car.

Love It — Excellent family car but in a sports version...only about 1 of the 2 that came to Fiji...this baby had a extraordnary 110hp 5AFHE engine thats about the same as any corolla 5AFE engine but with a very aggressive air flow system which gives extra ordinary power to his car... my personal best in this car was 175kmph even though this was a automatic..manual would have clocked 180+++.. too bad had to sell it!!

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

Pros: excellent family car...with sports looks. gave me good 2 years without any probs

Cons: bit oflight weight at the rear end so not too good with fast driving..however depends on driver to handle it

This Will Get You There, It'll Just Put You To Sleep On The Way. — Doesn't look like anything, doesn't perform like anything, but I put 160,000 miles on it in 6 years and never had to do more than oil and brakes. That's impressive reliability! It has no fun factor, and the back seat is abysmally small, but it's a commuter car, and in that regard it excels.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage, Reliability

Cons: No heart, No soul

Corrolla Power — It handled well but had a bit of body roll, the acceleration was brisk, 0-60 in under 10 secs. Nothing went wrong in my 3-4 years I had it. Solid reliable transport with a bit of Zip if you pushed it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Solid reliable transport with a bit of go when pushed

Cons: It needed suspension work to get it through the MOT after 4 years so binned it!
