Great sturdy car that gets you where you need to go. Currently own a 97 with over 193 thousand miles on it and there's no signs of slowing down.
Story
Took the car into the city for a mini "staycation", it was small enough to find plenty of parking but big enough for us to feel safe
Pros
The car has good gas mileage and needs little maintenance besides the routine ones (oil, brakes etc.). Good handling on the car, air conditioner still works! Dependable!!! Trunk is huge, has lots of leg room in both the driver/passenger section as well as back seats.
Cons
After just owning a 6 cylinder this car has less pick up so that's been an adjustment. It's not bad, just not as fast as I'm used to. Has less bells and whistles than I'm used to with new cars but for the cost I paid I'm more than thrilled with how well this car runs

1997 Toyota Corolla - This car never breaks down.

I have had this car since 1997, when my other car was destroyed while I was on vacation. Other than for routine maintenance, it has never been in the shop! I did have to replace the starter once when I was away from home. Other than that, it has given me no trouble and it has over 200000 miles on it!
Story
I was pulled over in in and the police officer asked me if I had any grenades. It must make people look tough, when they drive an old Corolla.
Pros
You will spend very little money on repairs and you will not be without your car while it is being fixed.
Cons
It doesn't hold a lot of cargo, and it has a small engine.
