This car was bought new back in 2004 by my mother. Six years ago it was given to me. Since then it has gotten scraped up and has over 177,000 miles on it, but nothing ever major has happened to it, and it still runs perfectly.
Story
Misjudging a drive through with my car and scraped the side mirror against a wall.
Pros
It was free. Toyota makes reliable cars. Perfect size for new(ish) driver. Even though they discontinued making them a few years ago, you still see old models being driven.

I traded in a gas-guzzling SUV for my Matrix, and have been pleased with the car since day 1. Because I've got 2 dogs, I needed a "dog mobile" that could fit them + all my things and the hatchback, fold-down option gives me as much room as my SUV without the weight and mileage issues.
Story
I lived in a town that never plowed; this tiny hatchback, though sliding a few times, managed to get me up the hills to my home (slowly) during the iciest storm of the year.
Pros
The car is smaller and lighter than an SUV, saving on gas. It also has far more space than appears externally. I've moved, carried equipment and lawn tools as well as 2 large dogs with ease.
Cons
Because this is a member of the Corolla family, it doesn't have the "get up and go" of some larger models. While it performs well once it's reached it's ideal speed, it takes a minute or two to reach 65 on the highway and it's virtually impossible to maintain a higher speed limit on mountains, leading to angry people behind me on 1 lane roads.
