Two weeks ago we purchased a new (to us) Toyota Corolla. Its a 2004. Prior to that we were driving a 1995 Ford Windstar which was a gift to us in 2001. It served us well, but it needed to be retired. Fortunately we were able to find someone else who needed it more than we did. We decided it was time to downsize due to rising gas prices. Plus, as our children get bigger their car seats get smaller, so we don't need the room of a minivan. It has been fun to drive and much less painful (price-wise) to fill up the tank.
