Yea the truck ran fine until the timing belt broke actually, all went downhill from there. Anyway, they have decided on a Corolla. They are probably gonna get a 2001-2006 with under 75k miles. Not bad if you ask me but I honestly think they are foolish for not getting a HX I found on CL for 3.8k that only has 114k miles on it. Thier loss I guess.

You could do a lot worse than a Corolla. I'd be curious to know what your dad thinks of it after he has it for a while.

My parents just bought a 2003 Camry to replace their 1998 Camry (which replaced a 1996 Camry). This, after telling them to buy a gen2 Prius and my mom being warm to the idea. The Camry isn't the best at anything, but it's very good at everything.

I'll ask him and let you know after a couple weeks, my parents are buying a UG tonight so my dad can work on his driving habbits.

I agree, I love my Camry, I think I am going to try and sell it soon though, I really need to get something that gets better MPG (35 just isn't cutting it).
