Meh — I have owned this car for about 3 years now. When I bought it I just needed a car to get around and did not have the finances to afford anything more expensive but the amount of money that I have sunk into it must be 3 times the cost of the car. I am so happy to get rid of it in a month when I graduate college and can afford a newer car.

Cost Efficient, Low-mainteance Car — I bought this car new in 2001 and have been driving it for 8 of those years with no payments. Quality is generally good. I have had to make a few repairs but nothing major or more than $1,000. Good gas mileage for its age.

Pros

i liked that it was a very dependable car and cheap on gas too.

Cons

i hated that it had a short life and threw a rod with only 133xxx miles on it.

I Hope To Get Mine Fixed To Run Again Someday — the acceleration braking and handeling were all very good for a JDM car. the car was a very sturdy car when it lasted. it was very cheap to maintain. this car is very fun to drive with its touchy gas pedal and quick exceleration.

It's a great car.

Not too much, Inside space to small,

Good One — One of light weighted car, and maintenance cost is low. I think, it's a long lasting car, the look is good, it's bit old now as so many cars are in market but it was competitive during it's time. fine car

For The Money Cannot Be Beat. — Best little car I have ever driven. Gets great highway mileage (35mpg+). Good looking, white, one owner. New tires, new brakes, no major body blemishes. Good for in-town or highway driving. Even on long trips it is comfortable enough. No major squeeks or rattles.

Pros

Realiable, economical, and dependable. Toyotas are top-rated for older cars because they last for years.

Cons

Will need regular maintenance to keep it in top performance.

It's A Great Car And A Great Deal! — Performance - handles great, sharp acceleration and handling. AC is very cold. Solid, dependable car. Consumer Reports rates it excellent and a top-rated older car to purchase. Build Quality - no leaks, squeaks, or rattles. Uses a little bit of oil, catalytic converter should be replaced if passing emissions test is required. Cost of ownership - gets great gas mileage. Will need regular maintenance. Fun Factor - Yes. It is cute and sporty and has a sunroof that works.

Sensible Choice, If You Use Your Mind To Choose A Car And Not Emotions — trim is 'terra', european market. its look isn't breathtaking but the build quality is very good, and being a toyota it is also very very reliable. try searching 'corolla ad trap' on youtube and you will get the picture... 1.4l, 97bhp, that i've got is no racer but it will cover good distance with not so much fuel... around 7l/100km, and you convert it to MPG... the acceleration isn't bad but you need to keep it in very high revs to make the most of it, and the handling is not very sporty either, it feels very numb and doesn't give any feedback. comfort is quite ok.

engine converts oil to soot, poor build quality in some aspects, incredibly boring to drive.

I Loved The Design When They First Came Out But The Reliability And Car Overall Is Overrated. — I've had tremendous problems with my corolla. I have always gotten the oil changed, maintained it, and taken great care of it but it was completely fallen apart on me. It's been through 3 power window motors on the passenger side, 3 door handles on the driver side, 2 air condition recharges, and now, my engine is converting oil into soot and burning through oil like crazy. This car is not everything that it is cracked up do be. Overall, the build quality is OK. I have found a of features, like the arm rest/storage console in the front to be VERY cheap- mine completely broke somehow, and the front cup holders are cheap. The seats are decent, although the back is cramped. It's so boring to drive it almost puts me to sleep. Overall not a horrible car, but definitely wouldn't get another one if given the choice.

Nice To Drive — Is a nice, fun and easy drive. Hasnt needed any repairs since i got it, interior is easy maintenance, fuel mileage is great - with the amount of riving i do a full tank can last me about 3 weeks, full tank = approx 65-70$$.

Well Built, High Quality Materials — acceleration - ok; braking - excellent; handling - excellent; built quality - no squeaks/rattles; interior - modern but the grey colour is a litlle bit dull; exterior - I like it; it is fun to drive but it is not a BMW. you can buy it.
