"This vehicle has been treated so poorly, by rights it should have gone wheels up a long time ago. It just keeps on going despite truly lousy maintenance. The acceleration (such as it is) is smooth and even and the visibility is very good. The only down side is the 1.6L engine is very sluggish when accelerating."
Cons: "no cd player,aux plug input, long to heat up, rust"

"No doubt, that this is my first car. I bought it for 1,000! When it had 217k. It isn't the best but it gets you where you want to go. Toyota were always know for there long lasting and reliability vehicles. This 1997 Toyota Corolla DX, still runs like a boss. It has 227k!, starts up like a charm. Even in the winter, it sounded different in a way, but it still ran very well. As for everything else, it's old car with simple basic controls and designs for those who aren't to high tech nowadays."
Pros: "Dependable, easy handling, great gas mileage"
Cons: "Can't think of any."

"Bought this car in 2001 for under $6k. After 15 yrs & over 100,0000 miles, I am looking for newer one!
Reclining passenger seat & drop down rear seats make it versatile little vehicle. A friend compared it to Captain Kangaroo's jacket (Google it young ones.) because he was continually amazed at what I sometimes pulled out of it: floor lamp; ceiling track lighting; lingerie chest; rolled 8x12 carpet, sliding door pet panel, 2 campers+8X10 cabin tent+2-man raft+all camping gear."
