I know that everyone should maintain their car. Well, I haven't. My Toyota Corolla is at 145,000 miles and I have not once had it serviced. Very bad of me, but my Toyota has not failed me once. It is great on gas, and never breaks down. I have had some trouble with the doors and hood opening mechanisms, but after 7 years, SOMETHING should break down, right? I am a huge fan of Toyota. I have owned Volkswagon, Ford, and Dodge vehicles, all of which gave me problems. My next car will be a Toyota (if ever I need one!).
Great on gas. Reliable.
Better door opening mechanisms. My inside and outside handles broke off, as well as the mechanism inside the door freezing up. The mechanism to open the hood also just froze on me, not allowing me to lock the hood completely. A trunk light would be a great added improvement.
