The Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla is always the answer for anyone searching for a dependable, low maintenance, good gas mileage vehicle.

Just about everyone wants a Corolla and probably needs one because they are incredibly reliable with a 1.8 or 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine only making around 150 HP and around 135 lb-ft of torque.

The Corolla is notorious for lasting forever. It has great MGP of around 30 city and 40 highway. On top of the great MPG of the Corolla, it’s also a Toyota so it’ll most likely last way over 200,000 miles.

Another great thing about a Corolla is that they’ve always really been in low demand so they are extremely cheap and easy to find. Consumers can probably find a used one in decent shape for around $5,000 unless you want to get one brand new which will cost about $20,000.

Corollas are probably the best thing to get a high schooler as their first car because they are simple, reliable and cheap.
