I Have No Reason Not To Drive It (annuel Income <$80,000) — It was the best car within the same price range. both performace, build quality and apperance were average (but good enough for me). it was cheap to run, low maintenance. I have to mention that it has a big boot (relevently). Is it fun to drive? I was looking for comfortability and it has done fine for me.

Best In Its Class No Contest! — I love the reliability, quality, safety, and economy of my car. It's stood up perfectly after 140,000 miles, with proper servicing and maintenance of course. It's been easy to mod and fun to drive. The exterior I think is the best of all the generations till the current one, but the interior leaves something to be desired. Corollas are some of the best cars on the road, no contest. Go to your local dealer and buy one today!

Hassle-free Fun — White 2001 Toyota Corolla S with black interior and 5- speed manual transmission. Bought new, and it now has about 99K miles. Surprisingly fun to drive with good ride quality. Steering becomes loose at the limits of adhesion, but feels natural and progressive up to 8/10ths, brakes feel great, shifter isn't quite Honda snick-snick but still very easy to operate. Seats are comfortable. Ergonomics are great, with one notable exception--the three cupholders are mediocre. The one cupholder in the rear is mounted on the center console, and is useless--so shallow, drinks will fly out over moderate cornering or bumps, and in the front, larger drinks (e.g. medium sized fountain drinks) will block access to the console and get in the way of the shifter. Audio system is so-so. Fit is great for the class and year, finish is about better than midpack, reliability is stellar--I have not had a single issue that needed a trip to the dealership, only performed routine maintenance and accident repairs. And being an economy car, any maintenance and repairs are cheap. I average about 32 mpg in the city and 38-40 on the highway. Road and wind noise are moderate. Engine isn't quite BMW I6 creamy, but it's relatively smooth. Overall, highly recommended. Fun to drive, cheap and hassle-free to operate. What more could one ask for?

Car For Worth — It is good for carring weight, sturdy and could handle some ruff treatment. The toyota wagon have a considerable amount of space for home/business it is a real asset. I would recommend this vehicle to everyone that cannot afford a pickup but still need to transport anything and still have your vehicle personal use

Great Little Car — Great little car. Not the fastest, not the prettiest, not the biggest, but it is always a dependable means of transportation. The inexpensive cars a design for daily use in commuting. They perform there tasks very well. Mine started out as a program car and was then placed on a rural mail route, by my Mom, with 75 miles of mostly dirt roads. If you just keep these little guys serviced and do your routine maintenance, your will get years of loyal service. I am currently showing 178,000 and would take it anywhere.

Its A Toyota — Its an overall great car have no problems with it, bought it in april with 250000kms on it already, it now has 283000 and never spent a cent on the engine. It also have almost no rust at all on it. It has pretty good pick up for a 1.8L 4 door sedan. Braking system works good, only thing i payed to do to it so far was putting a donut gasket on the exhaust. The interior is in pretty good shape, and the exterior is also in great shape just alot of chips in the paint on the hood, fenders and bumpers from highway driving. The cost to own it is little to none, basically all i pay for is gas and oil for oil changes. It gets great gas mileage around 40mpg and i enjoy driving it and it is pretty fun to drive for a family car

I Love My Rolla! — Performance: It's a simple little car and she runs well. You can't do anything crazy with her, but I enjoy driving her. Amazing turning radius. Build Quality: The only work I've ever had to do on her is typical maintenance (she's at 113K right now). Appearance: Nothing amazing, but still cute. Get one with a spoiler! Cost of ownership: She gets 25-31 mpg and low maintenance costs, nearly $0 in repairs. I think this is a great car for anybody that wants something simple and dependable.

As Reliable As A Stallion — The thing i love most about this car is that reliable. Even now 7 years later, still works with out a glitch and we have yet to do any major repairs. The biggest problem that i've had with the car is when a squirrel built a nest in the radiator grill. Its a 1.4 Ltr Petrol engine. Does 0-60 mph in bout 6-7 seconds. Nothin fancy but the reliability and comfort is spot on for any car in its class. And it isnt expensive either. Once i start college i hope to trick it out with sum after market parts. Brakes extremely well. Wont take coners at 100 mph but it handles quite well. Its a decent looking car and looks even better with a body kit.

All Around Average, But I'd Do It Again. — All around average car. It got me from point A to point B, but there was nothing too special about it. It had great handling, semi-decent power, good suspension, and got good gas mileage (it was only $25 to fill up the tank!!!). I drove it from San Diego to Los Angeles and back several times and from San Diego to San Francisco and back with no problems. Very little maintenance needed in the year and a half I owned it, just the regular oil changes and new brake pads. It was a pretty decent looking car too. I liked the interior especially. Lots of black with red stitching and details, better than average looking dashboard. I'm pretty positive I'd still have it now if I hadn't totaled it.

The Best Corolla Ever :] — i absolutely love my car, it has been through everything with me given it was my first car which i still drive! It is great on gas too, I get around 30-42 mpg depending on city or freeway miles. I have it lowered with intake and exhaust as well as a killer sound system! It had a minor tranny leak right out of the factory but that was fixed with no issues since with regular maintenance!
