It's a pretty basic car, but it does the job well. It survived a couple of minor parking lot fender benders without any issue to how it ran. Four doors and can seat five people. Back seats could lay down to fit things like luggage (or my snowboard!).
Story
The most memorable times I had in this car were when I would drive it out to the Blue Ridge parkway in Western NC to go hiking with friends or snowboarding in the winter. It handles mountain roads (and even blizzards!) like a dream.
Pros
It has very good gas mileage. I can get almost four hundred miles to a tank (about 12 gallons I think).
Cons
There's no Bluetooth (unlike new cars these days), and for some reason, the clock is stuck in military time. I can't get that to change...I don't think it's an option.

It was very reliable. I was a new teenage driver and needed something for driving to school and work. I never had any performance issues with the car save for a couple of sensor light errors later in its life.
Story
It took me through my entire college career. To mountains and parties and everywhere in between.
Pros
Very well engineered. Never needed any maintenance other than routine checks.
Cons
Only had front-wheel drive, which was not ideal when I moved to the mountains.
