After taking care of my neighbor's 1995 Corolla for 14 years I simply had to buy one. This car is everything that the '95 is and more since Toyota listens. It has more power, an adjustable driver seat, interior and truck lighting.
Simple, reliable, comfortable, and economical. Did I mention fuel economy, 40+ every time. Go for the LE model as they are mostly made in Japan.
Steering wheel controls for the radio would be nice.
