1999 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan
Bought mine as a left over in early 2000 -- somebody had returned it with about 2,000 miles logged and traded up. Has nearly all the options except (alas) ABS. It now has close to 80k miles on it and nothing has ever broken. I love this car, and it has convinced me that when the time comes that I have to pry myself away from it, only another Toyota (Lexus/Scion) product will do.
Outstanding reliability, great gas mileage, truly suprising pep and handling for a car in this class/price range.
ABS would be nice to have as a standard feature, and who can say no to more power? But, at this price, those are unfair nitpicks. Note that I am 6'1" and have no issues with room.
