Very Good, Useful Car — Living in the Catskills, I call it my "box turtle" because that is how much ground clearance it has - not much more than a turtle has. Fine in Spring, Summer and Fall but it is not really built for Winter conditions. Where snow and ice has piled up it is easy to get the frame perched on hard ice because of such a lack of clearance and only two wheel drive. But studs in the tires does help.

Pros: Handles neatly

Cons: Going up a long hill,  do not get in a hurry.

Incredible Custom Show Car — The fuel economy was great. The handling was very zippy. The way cool factor was awesome. The custom two tone paint job, custom two tone leather, lowered suspension and 18" wheels and tires, Bluetooth DVD, TRD exhaust, twin euro air horns, barbed wire pin striping with matching stitching on seats and door panels, carbon fiber door pillars, roof mounted rear spoiler and custom aluminum pedals and shifter made it into a true show car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: nice car

Cons: none

Great Fun Ride, We Each Have One! — I can not say enough about this car. I go for practical, dependable, inexpensive to run. I run a lot, putting many miles on my vehicles. I usually own them for many years and take care of them. This one has repaid me by not breaking down, falling apart, or requiring anything more than regular oil changes, a few (very few) brakes and windshield wipers. I would buy another if we needed a third. (Yes we own two).

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Super economical, unique style, roomy inside including backseats, good sound system

Cons: not known for power, but you can't have it all!

We Really Love That Little Car And Are Sad To Goodbye. — Really a great car I think it has that same status that a VW Bug had at the time groundbreaking. A car that just goes and goes, servicing is really inexpensive and for the money there is'nt a better car out there. It can seat 5 easily and has room to spare. If they made an all wheel drive version with a little more power we would buy another one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage, really easy to park and drive almost no blind-spots, fun car to drive just zips around town.

Cons: Would love the car to have more power, but with that being said the car really flies on the Hwy. Before you know it your zipping along at 80 mph.

Sharp Little Car. — I have loved this car from day 1. I just wish it was big enough to grow with my family. I really don't have anything bad to say about it. Being a dark car in SC it can get hot inside but the AC will cool it down quickly.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love the seats.  It is like sitting in a chair.  It is comfortable and you can see everything around you.  I am going to miss the radio functions that are built into the steering wheel.  

Cons: It is not as large as I need.  It doesn't work for a large family.

2006 Scion Xb — 44,000 miles, and it seems like it'll go on forever. Gets 30 mpg, and has a 9 gallon tank. So, you'll go 270 miles with $25. Its way better than a 1996 VW Gti, especially the one owned by Iordan. Its a fun and stylish car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its really roomy and its purple

Cons: Only a 1.5L Engine

Never Again — MPG are amazing, very spacious on inside. Tiny, weak engine, not made for driving over 50 on windy days. Everything falls apart wicked easy but it is toyota made and the internal stuff is keeping up pretty good. Its size makes it easy to handle

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas MPG

Cons: Falls apart easy
