Just curious what you guys n gals drove before you had your Corollas. I traded in a 2001 Jeep Wrangler in on an 07 Corolla LE and haven't looked back before that I had a 95 Dodge Spirit, a 89 Chrysler Lebaron an 87 Dodge Dakota a 85 Volkswagon GTI and an 81 Oldsmobile Delta 88

Until my Corolla arrives in about a week I'll be concluding my 2 and a half year use of a 2001 Hyundai Accent. Best decision I ever made!

Until Friday, I'll still be driving my 2003 Buick Centruy (silvery-tan). Before that it was a 97 Century (maroon), a 93 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera (light blue), and my first car ever was a 1986 Pontiac 6000 STE (black).

Still have very fond memories of that first one, and I still like my current Century. However, the Corolla will be the first car I've actually bought myself (the others were all given by my parents, the 97 and 03 Centuries initally belonging to my mom), and as such I'm sure I'll feel even more attached to it. I'll even still have the Century in spirit; it'll be going to my g/f so she doesn't have to rely on her parents to take her to work and such anymore.

Chevrolet Corsica LT 89 (3.1) (great first car when your 18. exhaust was nice)

Dodge Neon SOHC 1998 coupe(this car was my best one, never went true the engine or tranny and never cost me too much to run and handling was outstanding)

Mazda 626 1998 V6 MTX - A real piece of crap In five year I put like 7000$ in repair. Never buy this.

Ford Focus ZX3 2001 - Very good car, handling great and confort A1 for a little car. I would have buy a focus instead of the Corolla but I am waiting for the next Gen coming to north america coming soon.

Mazda 6 2.3 MTX 2005 - Never buy this. Nice car to drive but weak clutch assmbly on those year. I sold the car after 3 moth of ownership.

And finally a 2009 Toyota Corolla.

The last car I had was a 1995 Eagle Talon ESI (non-turbo). It was a great little 30MPG gas sipper, but one day on a road trip, the water pump crapped out and busted the timing belt. It cost too much to fix so I ended up donating it to the Purple Heart car donation.
When gas prices spiked over the summer, I needed another gas sipper so I bought a 1997 CE at a used car lot.

I currently own 3 other cars (2005 Stang GT, 2003 350Z, 1983 380SL Benz) which I drive for fun. My Corolla is used primary as my daily driver.
