Starleto Love — fast, light, appealing, low cost, fun to drive, medium build quality but very strong engine, nice handling, poor braking, bit of rattly, medium cost of ownership, seriously fun to drive, uncomfortable, money drainer if you love it, never going to get rid of it (virtually)

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

Pros: all-around low cost fun

Cons: maintenance, how to drive

Starlet — it's blue...got lots of dints in it from living next door to a shopping centre...stupid trolleys and morons who can't drive..it's doesn't go very fast but I can beat quite a few cars off the line...the best part about it - it's not a hyundai excel and it costs less to run than a commodore

Pros: small, cheapish

Cons: very dirty when i cbf cleaning it

Economical — Styling is not all that but i did change the colour.. put metal flaked blue (like on a stock impreza only better) Its only about 80 bhp so perfomance is lacking. Rear suspension os pretty weak so i had to change it..cost about 35k inclusive of fitting

Pros: Economical and small

Cons: pooor perfomance, styling is bland

Cute, Cheap!!! — This car is very cute, very cheap to run and also cheap to fix. The size is the biggest sell point, it lowers the fuel cost, and if you need to you can fit 5 people snug in the car. The 40ish lt fuel tank can get up to 600 kms compared to my Falcon's 68 lt tank that gets between 300-450 kms. At 100km/h on a freeway the car screams and road noise is high so car is not for cruising. Ideal for city driving.

Pros: Low running cost, reliable, ideal for city driving.

Cons: Not for cruising, small interior.
