| ||Model||Toyota Corolla |
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Well, unfortunately mine is an automatic so it's kinda pokey. But I have driven stick-shift Corollas, and they are much better with the giddy-up. Other than that, there really aren't any weaknesses. It's a car that doesn't try to be anything it's not. If you want more room, buy a bigger car. If you want sporty looks, buy a sports car. If you want to go off-road, buy a jeep. But if you're a guy like me with not a lot of cash to spare and you appreciate a quality machine, this is the car for you. Way better than a Honda. (let the warfare ensue!)|
| ||General comments?||I bought my Corolla with just under 135k on the odometer. The mileage did concern me a little, but the car ran strong and my mechanic vouched for it, so I went for it. Now I know that mileage just doesn't mean what it used to, especially not on a Toyota. Sure, you will be faced with the normal wear and tear... brakes, alternator, etc... but when you're on a budget like I am these things are expected anyhoo. So, other than these typical sorts of things, the car has run like a top from the moment I drove it home. Starts right up, and runs clean and straight. There is simply no better way to spend your hard-earned money.|
| ||Previous car||I had a Ford Escort once, and although it didn't really give me much reason to complain (I got 225k out of it before it got wrecked), once I got my Toyota it was all over between me and American made||
