Gets The Job Done And Doesn't Kill The Wallet. — The car is pretty nice overall. However, I did get every option available, so that may have something to do with it. The stock stereo is decent, and the 6 disc in-dash changer kicks ass. The car rides low, and with the front body kit, rides even lower than a regular Corolla CE or LE. Aerodynamically it is pretty solid, but feeling winds on the highway is tough sometimes when they are coming at you laterally. My car doesn't have the 5-spoke rims, it has 6-spoke alloy rims. I have, however, beaten this car a bit due to the nature of driving through four New England winters... the front body kit is broken in a few spots, and there is a dent in the front bumper. The brakes are good, and it is very easy to replace the pads in the front. It took my friend and I only about 45 minutes between cracking the lugs and putting the tires back on.

Pros: Gas mileage, handling, braking. Decent acceleration for a 1.8L 4 cylinder engine that puts out 125 hp. Easy to parallel park.

Cons: Relatively low top speed of approx 115-120 mph. It's tough to tell how fast you're really going because the speedometer stops at 110. There is a recall issue with a pressure control solenoid which causes the automatic transmission to be jerky when shifting, especially in lower gears and in reverse. A 5 speed would have been a better choice had I known I wouldn't be living in Boston Proper for long.
