Model Answer:

After our old car has started giving frequent troubles lately, I and my family have finally agreed in principle that it is time to buy a new car. Of course, we are still arguing about what type of car to buy this time, but I am opting for a 4-door Sedan.

The car, I would like to own, is a black and shiny Toyota Corolla. It is an 1800 cc, 4-cylinder, 3200 horsepower and automatic transmission car. Offering a seating capacity of 5 passengers, the seats in this car are fully made of leather. Offering a cruise controlling option, this particular car also has a safety airbag, attached to its steering wheel, in order to ensure maximum safety.

This sleek and stylish car has great mileage, offering about 30 miles per gallon when driving in the city. Once I buy this car, it will not only help me save my time when travelling to and from my work but also can carry my whole family to different places at their convenience. Besides, this car would allow me to take care of important house choirs, like carrying groceries in bulk or carrying other household things. Besides, it would also help me ease my tension in a great deal when I visit to see my old grandparents in another city, which is quite far from where I live. In fact, visiting my old grandparents is one of the main reasons for which I would like to own this vehicle, as our old car gives us a lot of trouble when travelling a long distance.

Well, I wish I could buy this vehicle today, but I will have to wait until next year to get it because of some financial issues.

Anyway, I want to own this vehicle, mainly because it is affordable, and it has many great features, like great mileage, and other advanced technologies. Besides, this is a spacious enough car where my entire family can fit in rather comfortably. Finally, I want to own this vehicle also because it is very reliable and comes with a great engine.
