Good everyday Car!

2001 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Fun to drive in a stick.. really zips
around! Quick, reliable, good on gas ..
Bumpy, noisy, small .. but you're not
buying a Lexus. It's a little expensive
for it's size, but your paying for the
Toyota name (and assumed quality). It's
scary to think that for not alot more
money, a Camery isn't to far away.
Brakes have gotten progressivly more
spongey as I've driven it (28k as of
now) .. Oh yeah .. I got rear ended
twice (once pretty hard) .. zero damage
except scrapes. If you change your own
oil, the filter is hard to get at and
messy to remove.
Power and zip with the 5 speed. Gas
miliage great, even if you race it
around. No problems after 28k.
Better brakes. Rev limiter for the
stick shift (I missed 2nd once during a
stop light race .. dolt!)
