Toyota Corolla (pre 1997)
Advantages: Cheap and nice for a first car
Disadvantages: Old and parts might break
My corolla was bought 4 years ago used, and I was surprised that it was still running just like new. I bought it for around 2-3 grand with a new radio inside. The car was mainly bought because it features 29-35 mpg and was a gas saving car. After some various repairs because the original owner left it slightly messed up it looked like a new car. It has four doors which I liked about this car. Mainly, because it annoys me when there's only two doors and it becomes an annoying hassle to fit more than two people in and out of the car. The cars ac can cool or heat up the whole car in a few minutes which is also nice. The trunk is also more spacious than I thought it thought it would be. Its big enough to fit a decent sized stereo in the back and have enough room for a basketball and groceries. I would only recommend this car to people who only have a little money to spare and for first time driver though.
Sadly, there are also many down sides to cars this old. Cars like my corolla are still years old and parts will break down and after driving for a while I noticed that parts of the car were starting to break down. The glue on the car was starting to come off and crack. Then the door wouldn't unlock unless it was done manually. Both cup holders in the front and middle of the car are broken. It seems like an extremely cheap car when you're inside of it and outside of it. Its design isn't that bad, but most corollas on the road this old are all usually in bad condition. Cars like these are also usually considered cheap.
Now I'm going to basically list up my opinions of this car.
Starts up fast
Cheaper than most
Parts will undoubtedly break unless used with a lot of caution
Inside the car everything seems to be made of cheap plastic
Will scrape sometimes when going up a curb with only 3-4 people inside
Summary: I would recommend for first time drivers
