I bought my 1997 Toyota Corolla from a rental car company. It is a 4-door automatic. It came with 24k miles and I've put another 70k on it since then. I have had NO unexpected mechanical problems with it (other than the time my husband ran down the battery by leaving the keys in it all night!)I would still feel comfortable driving it on a trip. I would recommend this car to anyone, especially for a student going to college who will be driving back and forth a lot.
Fold down back seats; roomy trunk space; power side view windows.
