The Best $15,000 Investment I Ever Made

I bought my 1996 Toyota Corolla DX in May, 1997 from the Toyota dealer in Boulder, CO. It had 1,300 miles on it. When I purchased it, I had the center console and front bug installed. I paid $15,000 cash. Today this wonderful, reliable car has logged 300,800 miles, going strong, never a mechanical problem- ever. I just drove it on a 700-mile road trip. I am the original and only owner. In the 26 years since buying this car, I have also owned a Dodge Ram van and Subaru Outback. They are fine for the long haul but no way do they match little "Red Snapper" for running short hauls around town. I love this car!

Amazing 1996 Corolla auto

With 180,000 K on the clock, this vehicle is running well. Had some work carried out earlier this year.. new front engine mounts, new air con compressor, new rear brake drum seals and am auto trans service. Only item needing attention on recent service was a blown brake light bulb. It is reliable, economical, more than adequate performance once the motor isxwarmed up. This was my mother's car, and now that she is not allowed to hold a drivers licence, I have adopted it and am keeping up with the maintenance. A terrific car and a keeper
