My new car ( not a Celica :( )

Well as some of you know I was looking for a new car. I really wanted a Celica but it never happend frown They couldn't find one for me. But I found something that made up for it. A new 2005 Corolla S. I love it! I was also tempted by the new Scion tC. But all in all I think I picked up a great car that will also help me with gas too. I get 30MPG City and 38 on highway.

What you guys think? It's not a celi, but hey! I got a new car smile

I don't like the new Corolla's, I liked by '99. Design was simple, small & effective. thumbsup

now you have to lower it and get some sways, those things dont drive like the celica, my dad has a camry, but he likes the celica more, so he got sways and lowered it for a more aggressive handleing, i dont know what hes going to do next, i dont know much about camrys...

Yeah I did want the XRS but it only came in Manual. frown I haven't ever drove a manual before (but I would like to.) so it probly wont be a good idea to have a newb try manual on a new car. smile Anyways the only thing that different between the Xrs and S is some of the interior and the engine.

it's a good buy, not a racer for sure. XRS is probably a better choice. i didn't know how to drive a manual until i bought my celica. it's a good way to learn manual by forcing yourself... thumbsup thumbsup
