I purchased my car in 1998 and 7 years later it has never let me down! Unfortunately the body has not fared as well and I have to get rid of it :( I am picking up a Geo Prizm today, (same as the Corolla..sense a pattern here?)
The pep of the engine. A 14 year old car has no business being zippy!
The body needs improvement. It's much like a tin-can on wheels.
