Cons: "Hard to find, especially lower mileage"

"Except for a few technological improvements, I would actually hesitate trading my 1994 Corolla for a new one. True, it only has 22,000 miles on it, but the steering, handling and power seems superior or equivalent to new rental cars I've driven recently. Instead of renting a car in California for some months, I bought another one--this '94 Corolla with 196,000 miles. Ran wonderfully,though the shocks were a bit rough. Reliability is legendary---my 1988 Corolla was sold to a friend--still running well. At the going price, you don't really have to worry about collision insurance. Expect 25 mpg in regular driving, regular gas. Ah, if they only made them as well as as simply as 20 years ago...."
