Even some small cars can actually fare quite well in moderate off-roading.

But the ultimate concern was durability. The suspension isn't exactly 'heavy duty'

For anyone seeking for reliable transportation with an excellent stability of comfort and economic system, the Corolla continues to be a few of the first-rate options.

I saw a Gen 1 honda insight on craigslist in my area for $3,200... 144,000 miles seemed like a pretty good deal
