Is wanting something newer the only reason you want to get rid of it? If so, I'd think twice. They don't make cars like these anymore. They don't drive the same, handle the same, and they certainly aren't as easy to work on. I went through a phase when I wanted to sell mine, until I worked in a brake and alignemnt shop. It showed me how retarded new cars are, and I really learned to appreciate my old simple Corolla. Maybe change something up? Get some custom wheels, tint the windows, weld an exhaust, lower it, ect. ect.

What NEW do you want in NEW-ER?
1. In about yey many months, the new will become routine then old. Was it worth it then?
2. You have a well running car, known to be reliable. Why gamble with a new purchase?
3. So, you want a new stuff. Navigation, bluetooth, kick ars stereo, what else? Oh, xenon headlights. Well, for a somewhere around $600 you can actually spiff current car.
So why bother?

Ask for 1400, but you probably won't get that. I can see getting a newer car for safety reasons. It feels like driving a tin can when I'm next to new cars and SUVs.

How much newer do you want? The folks in the 7th gen forum seem to love their cars. I got a 97 but haven't really driven it because I'm working on it first, but it does seem like a small step up from my 90.

If anything I'd like a car with a little more leg room, but for cheap reliable transportation you can't beat these Corollas, 6th & 7th gen.

I have to agree with DrZ, in that depending on where you're at you might not get 1400 for it. But then it also depends on what you're looking for with something "new". In my case, something new/newer would have to have AC and cruise control. Be a little bigger inside, and look a little more modern. It would also have to have reliability. This means a newer Toyota, Honda, or something with very low mileage on it. I bought a 99 Honda Accord LX 5 speed. I bought it very cheap (350.00), and it needs some work, but it's also got everything I was wanting in something newer.
I still have my Geo Prizm though, as it's still a very reliable car.

I don't think safety is a reason to get another car. These cars are small and old, but they defiantly have the engineering behind them to protect in an accident. Heck! I wrecked one going 65MPH and that bitch held up solid! Who even knows what safety is these days. Buy anything newer and the airbag will kill ya with shrapnel.
