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.

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.

Highly Recommended As A Reliable Family Car. — Love this car. Very economical. Comfortable, easy to drive and has performance when you need it. Fits car seat, stroller and dog no problem. Tidy appearance, like the interior in black. I just need to wash it more. Recommend to buy.

It's a great car.

Cons

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

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.

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.

Looks good, great on gas, powerfull enough, no problem to "heel-and-toe", trunk large enough to carry a pocket bike or RC Plane and all their respective tools.

Cons

No cruise, no power windows

'02 Corolla 5spd — * Performance – acceleration is fair seems to be as powerful as my 1999 Acura Integra, braking and handling are as expected for an entry-level car. * Build Quality – it hasn't needed repairs since purchasing it, though it has over 170,000 Km. No squeaks, but the shocks are beginning to have rattles. * Appearance – for an entry-level, base Toyota (not well known for their body styling, especially since the demise of the Supra and Celica) the styling insn't bad at all. Interior styling isn't anything to write home about. * Cost of Ownership – gas mileage is well above average. I'm not the most conservative driver and I still get 40+ miles to the gallon. Maintenance has yet to become an issue. Everything works just fine, as expected. * Fun Factor – is this car fun to drive? Definitely, yes! It is not a high-powered beast, but it goes right along and manages the corners quite well.
