Pros

It is reliable

Cons

It is small.

Decent Ride — The car is pretty cramped, but it produces decent acceleration and sustainable top speed on the open road, plus you can always depend on the brakes. Because of the age, there are some squeaks from the suspension and some repairs needed every now and then. The styling both inside and outside are decent, nothing spectacular. It has great gas mileage and the maintenance cost is pretty low. It is a car one can get attached to, even if every now and then I dream of a newer model.

Pros

Easy to drive, pretty good performance and gas efficiency

Cons

3 speed transmission, no tachometer on my model, high RPMs at 60+ MPH because of lack of overdrive gear

55

1999 Corolla Ve 1.8l Automatic — 1999 Corolla VE 1.8L, ~44,500 miles My trim was the lowest trim option available...has manual windows and locks and no ABS. The transmission is a 3-speed auto without overdrive. Performance: The engine seems to have pretty good acceleration for a 1.8L four, handling is pretty good. The brakes do stop the car very well but of course if you mash the brake pedal down the wheels will almost instantly lock due to lack of ABS. Gas mileage is around 20-24MPG all the time, even if you drive it hard. Build Quality: My car seems to have pretty good build quality, and has not needed any major repairs as of yet. Still on the OE brakes, and tire wear isn't bad at all. The engine seems to be in pretty good shape with no oil burning or extraneous gas consumption. However, the engine has been idling at higher RPMs than usual and doesn't seem to back down until a few minutes pass. Transmission is still in good shape, but shifts kind of hard if you are giving the engine a little too much gas. The interior is still in good shape too, but some vinyl door trim has shrank and peeled off from the heat, and the beige cloth driver's seat is turning black from use. Appearance: Pretty basic interior styling because it is a budget compact sedan, but it was expected. Ownership costs: Gas mileage is good at 20-24MPG, and routine maintenance is cheap unless you need a new fuel filter. I say this because the fuel filter and pump are inside the gas tank, so a mechanic will have to remove the tank and change the filter. Fun factor: Going the governor (112.5MPH) as your 1.8L screams at 6000 RPM on your 3 speed transmission (insane how 3rd gear goes from 45-112MPH). Conclusion: A great economical car for a first time driver or money conscious person.

Pros

Super reliable, good gas mileage and handles fairly well on icy roads. It's a good practical car and hasn't had any major issues.

Cons

Goes through oil. I have to add 2-3 quarts of oil in-between it's regular oil changes.

Good Practical Car — I like that it's affordable. My initial purchase of the car was fairly cheap and it was and still is in good condition. I bought it to commute to work and school but have driven it on 850 mile trips. It runs very well and is reliable. I've been very happy with it and the gas mileage it gets.

Pros

It's a Toyota.  Solid, well made, reliable, long lasting, comfortable, quiet.

Cons

I wish the suspension were a little stiffer.  It doesn't carry loads well (rear suspension doesn't carry much; but it isn't a utility vehicle).

Great Commuter/single Person - Beginning Family Car — It's a compact car. Don't expect midsize from this. Get a good set of Michellins on it and it'll run smooth and quite for years. It's sharp looking. Handling is great, steering smooth, engine has pep. Love the car. Owned for 10 yrs. Our second Corolla.

Totally Worth The Investment — Great little car. Maybe not the most attractive car on the lot. Performance is great if you're talking about longevity and maintenance requirements, however there's little power. Very fun car to poke around in. I wish it had ABS, better crash rating and cruise control.

Corolla 99 — This is my 99 corolla, it's a stock car exept the rimms and the air intake filter. The build quality is good, in the 4 years i have had the car there hasn't been any problems, there are some minor squeaks in the interior plastics if i drive on a rough road. The gas mileage is? I do not have a clue, i just go fill up when i start to run out of gas, but whit the 1330cc engine it doesn't drink a lot of gas. The performance isn't good whit 86 bhp, it accelerates poorly, the braking is okay and the handling is allso okay with the wider summer tires.The interior is terrible, well it's a little better now when i have painted the gray plastic parts black, before it looked like an old persons car weeery booring. The exterior i like, it "just" needs a new paint job and i want to lower the suspension a bit. Overall it's a good everyday car but if you wan't to have fun this isn't the car to buy, i can recomend this car to people who only wan't to get from one place to another and don't care about performance or how fun it's to drive.

1999 Toyota Corolla — I really like my Toyota Corolla. The fuel mileage (35 mpg) is a plus. It accelerates and brakes really well and it also has great handling for everyday driving. The car has a good exterior but the interior is plain, although it doesn't bother me. Overall, I really like this car.

Pros

Sexy, Good Performance, Good Braking, Good Handling and its a really sweet car to drive.

Cons

Gas Mileage & Maintenance can be a bit high if gonna be used as a drag car

45

Adrenaline Levin — This car had good acceleration being a 16/16 and not a BZ-R. The Breaking was good I could stop within the dictance on 2 lamp post from a speed of 160khm and the handling was superb, this car could take corners just as good a the cars with the strut suspension. No major repair ever needed no squeaks or rattles. Well as you can see from the pic the exterior was sexy and I did a little thing with the interior, I had installed 2 new bucket seats but the interior was incomplete. The gas mileage & maintenance were a little above average due to the fact that I harrased the car a bit doing a little Drag Racing. I Loved Driving this Levin more than n e thing I wanna kick myself for selling it.

My Car — I currently own this car in Pakistan. The Overall Performance is excellent and i quite like its acceleration. Although its a 1.6 but the pick is really fast. The Buiild Quality is also good but not excellent. Both the interior and exterior is also very well styled. It is a nice car to live with.
