"I have had this car for 15 years leased it new when I was 19 yrs old and then bought it after the lease ended and even though it is a little crowded with my 2 sons in the back seat now as my family has grown it still gets wonderful gas mileage after all these years and 233,000 miles and I love it. I am now 35 yrs old and we just got a 4 door much larger Pontiac G6 to share as a family car but it feels like driving a tank compared to my little car. It would fit in any parking spot, turn on a dime, used to get me in lots of trouble with speeding tickets when I was younger - I've been well educated with "driving schools" and it is still going strong. I am a TOYOTA GIRL for sure!!!"
"I bought this car because I always wanted a convertible for my mid-life crisis and it was a used car now my main car. It never gave me any mechanical problems with proper maintenance and I gave it a new top because it was 10 years old but only 60K on her. She still looks good and sporty and gives me a combined 28 mpg and 35 mpg on the freeway. It is my 3rd Toyota and will maybe get a Prius for my next car."
"I bought my 1997 Paseo used in early 2000, it had over 35,000 miles. I've had it now for 11 yrs and it still runs great. I now have over 210,000 miles on my car and still going. My car has never overheated, never broke down, except for tires. It is soooo dependable. I usually put either Chevron or Texaco gas in it, what I call the good gas. Besides general maintenence, only my starter have I had to replace so far, and I have other things going wrong on it now such as the steering rack, and lots of oil leaks; however, it still runs and I plan to keep driving it until it gives out. Besides I have no car payment and I can save the money."
