retired. All the nuns had corollas, kept in perfect condition. When it came time for various nuns to stop driving or get a new car, my aunt would sell us the used Corollas to us for $500. It was fantastic. We had a little fleet of nun cars.


I think that a 1982 vespa would humble enough....

I don't think that "S" means what Toyota thinks it means.

"S" is supposed to mean sport.
*borrows Ryan Braun's soapbox*

For example, I driving a 2005 MINI Cooper S. The standard MINI engine is a 1.6L 4 cylinder that makes, 110hp. The Cooper S makes 165 due to the supercharger put on top of the standard engine. It also has a different suspension that makes it more capable in the twisty bits. Sport(y).

The Corolla has some plastic shit bolted on and at last check has rear drum brakes. It is essentially an appearance package. Not sport(y).

*steps off soap box, flips Braun the bird, and exits stage left*


Yeah, I've got a sweet spoiler *

spoiler is a nice look. And it's a nice looking car.


That's not true, the S has a different engine than the
by smcchick  (2013-07-23 10:37:01)     cannot delete  |  Edit  |  Return to Board  |  Ignore Poster   |   Highlight Poster  |   Reply to Post

regular versions. It does not give it a different suspension that I know of.

I have a Matrix S. The base model has a 1.8 L, and the S has a 2.4L.

Now ask me if I know what any of that means and no I don't. I just know that when the shit goes down, I can accelerate the hell out of there. It's really nice for getting on the freeway. I'm used to putt putting into traffic and this thing moves baby.



The Matrix S is different; it was modeled after the Vibe GT.

The Corolla's all have the sample 1.8L engine.


Well that sounds like a big waste of time then.

I will have you drive my car while Sarah is driving yours. You can tell me if I have good pep or not.


I've heard the Vibe GT was pretty fun to drive. *

GT. But that's just my own personal taste.


Sometimes msg can be dangerous, though.
