Summary:

" The car for 16 year olds who are just starting to drive, or the perfect college student car!"

Faults:

Not one thing at all!!

General Comments:

When I got this car back in 2003, it belonged to my 81 year old grandfather who drove it gingerly. It's white, and the body still looks like it did when he got it back in 1997, which is like new! Even the blue interior still looks like brand new!

The reason for buying the car? Well, my 1991 Corolla had 185,000 miles on it, and the motor went, so I got my grandfather's car. Before he went into a nursing home, he sold me the car for just $6000.

I still have the car, and not one thing is wrong with the car. It runs great, handles great, and is great on gas!

So if you are in the market for a great car that's great for a first time driver, or as a car for the kids that are just starting to drive, or just need a second car that can easily be used as a commuter car for city driving, look no further! You cannot go wrong with these cars! And they are very dependable and long lasting vehicles!
