My friend's cousin drove us somewhere in her Yaris way back when I had friends. I asked her about the instrument cluster and she said "I like it! I end up speeding, though."

I still think that mounting an Android tablet and installing Torque is the way to go.

Please excuse me while I talk crazy

I am unsure what exactly my business is, but since I have an LLC, I qualified for a small business disaster loan. This is the first Corolla that drew my attention: 2009 Toyota corolla LX model for sale by original owner - $6250 (North Phoenix)Kelley is $6,446 in excellent condition for that mileage.

Oops, no, the front driver's bumper is scuffed.

$5,832 in very good condition.

The loan is at 3.75%. I believe the cool kids say that I cannot afford not to buy things that I do not need with it. Then I claim it as a tax deduction!

[and pretend it is now free even though it absolutely isn't]

The federal tax is 22% for me, so if I pay $5,800 it would really only cost me $4,524, which is practically free!

Yeah, I am totally going to do something else with that money.

I reached out to a bank or credit union to create an account that gets 4 or 4.09%, but you cannot apply on-line, you are supposed to have them call you.

Huh. I wonder if that was one of the calls that I missed. I should figure out who that was and follow up!

Guys. Guys! Do I need an Accord with more miles, fewer doors, less headroom, and a bad transmission? :D

Look at those rims!

No footprints, but not great, although it looks different than mine.

"interior is really nice." It is the wrong color and are there both seat covers and a steering wheel cover?

I am unsure what the differences there are between the LX and the EX, but I am sure there are some parts that I can use or sell.

Lots of parts that wouldn't fit my car! I don't know where I would store them, I turned the shed into my office!

$750 definitely sounds high for a high-mileage car with a bad transmission.

Haven't seen a 2-door Accord of that generation for a while. On a sidenote, even though it may take longer to sell everything which could still worth something, wouldn't it return a higher profit if you part it out?

Personally I'd be looking at something like this

2008 Prius - 105K miles - $5200
https://phoenix.craigslist.org/nph/c...116926513.html



My 2005 and 2009 were the most reliable cars I've owned. The only thing they needed besides routine maintenance was the 3-way valve for the coolant thermos which doesn't actually have to be fixed. The 2005 was sold at 147K miles / 13 years old and the 2009 at 115K miles / 10 years old.

My parents have a 2010 with 185,000 miles that has only had routine maintenance. (No 3-way valve in the 3rd gen)

The 3rd gen (2010 - 2015) drives better and gets a little bit better fuel economy. The 2nd gen (2004-2009) are a couple grand cheaper.

If I were going for a Prius, probably I'd still rather get either a 3rd-gen or a Prius c just to avoid having to deal with the chain at the power-split device.
