Put a deposit down on a 2012 Corolla S today . Assuming it's good to go with its inspection and the like on Monday, I'll have it then or Tuesday! Fun times!

Remarkably close, actually. My head's just a little small in that picture . But yup! That's the one!

I'm sad that I'm late for this thread. Oh well. I'll keep my opinion to myself.

Excellent choice. A Subaru or VW can be a good choice depending on your goal, but it's hard to beat a Corolla for just general car purposes.

I'd love a Subaru later on in life when I have the cash to afford a fairly new one. The AWD capability and the glowing reviews I hear from their owners have me swayed.

I've driven several. I've driven lots of cars. In my humble opinion, unless you're getting a 2-door 2.5RS from about 99-01, or an 04-05 STi, there's not much point. Maintenance is a pain in the butt when you can't reach a large part of the motor from the top, and everything is pointed sideways. The older BMW I just sold was far easier to work on than any Subaru I've experienced.

If you want to have fun for cheap, buy a motorcycle. I just bought one for 5k that will run with any car under 100k.
