Anyone who has driven with me in the past year or so will immediately acknowledge my obsession with Toyota Corollas. I usually point out every one I see, to the annoyance of my passengers. I have been researching them for a long time, frequenting toyota.com and clicking on the link “Build Your Own Corolla”. What color should it be? What features do I want? I have pondered these difficult decisions for a year, mulling them over in my brain, testing out each option. My mind has changed a million times, and I even looked at other cars, but never wavered about my decision of wanting a Corolla. (And no, I did not want a Honda Civic. So please stop telling me that I should get one. I don’t want to be like every other person my age and in actuality, Civics have gotten expensive! Corollas are just as good and much cheaper.)
As Paul’s car started giving us more and more problems, we decided to go ahead and get a new car. We decided to get a good, reliable car that was a little more expensive but would last forever. We researched different cars, including Paul’s pick – a Volkswagon Jetta – but according to Consumer Reports, the Corolla topped every other car we looked at. After much discussion, we decided to bite the bullet and get it.
As of yesterday, I am the proud owner of my very own 2004 Toyota Corolla LE. :-) It’s beautiful! Everyone should come take a ride in it. :-) Pictures!
Look, leather interior! That was a bonus about this particular car. :-) It also has a CD player – my first time having one of those and I love it. Another cool thing is that it has the outside temperature on the dashboard. It is 94 degrees outside right now. Just so you all know!
Okay I’m slightly excited!! And I’m getting married in 16 days! Hooray, fun stuff.
