Reliability And Fast — Dark colors make cars be hotter inside, but the Toyota Corolla's A/C works well. Overall, the car is reliable. The motor is still new even though has been used for a little bit. I had no problem since I purchased the vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas savings and goes fast. AC works good. Interior is tan color

Cons: It is black. It needs a little work.

Loved This Car —

i purchased this car new-ish.. it was a leftover that no one wanted because it was a stick. It was also a weirdly optioned stick, as it didn't have the spoiler, the fog lights, alloys, but had leather and a moon-roof. When i purchased this i had leased it with the intention of keeping it. I was working on Long Island and living in NJ, so my commute daily was killer. The miles poured on, and in 3 years i had done 100K miles. i owned the car for an additional 3 years in that time i put on over 300K miles. I had figured that this car would run as long as my 85 camry, however it did not.. There are some issues with this car to which you should keep in mind.. 1. The 1zzFe engine in the 98-99 corolla is not the same as the 1zzfe used in the 2000 - 2014 models. There is no variable valve timing. (VVTI) as a result the parts are different between this one and the new ones, which means they are a little more expensive. 2. The clutch in the manuals sucks.. 3. The DRL have a design flaw, so you will eat through bulbs like water 4. The power window regulators suck, and do not close right. 5. The O2 sensors are expensive, and this model had an issue with eating them. (i pulled the check engine bulb and gave up, drove another 100k miles and didn't care) Aside from that, i am certain you cannot kill these cars.. I know as once i got to 250K miles, i decided to rip it apart and make a tuner. This was a cheaper investment than a Honda, and the outcome was brutal fun.. at 250K miles. Motor was replaced with a 2zzGE(gen1) with forged internals (9200RPM redline) The transmission was replaced with a (gen1) 6speed from a celica gts The clutch was replaced as well as all the linkage.. with a stage 4 clutch and lightened flywheel. (Added LSD) The interior was gutted two racing seats installed Added coil-overs 17in Rota's and street slick summer tires. Sold the car at 304K miles after having some fun. (got 7k) ran a 13.2 on all motor and still got 30mpg..

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: manual transmission with all the bells and whistles..
comfort, reliability, build quality, handling, braking, safety

Cons: Read Review

An Excellent Car — The car is best that I have ever had.I have had for six months and I don't intend to give it up for any price. The car that owned before this one was a Pigeout 1979 which made me a regular guest at the mechanic's. This one has caused no problems so far.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I have this car on which I put 33000 Km. It is reliable so long as you change the oil on time. The brakes and acceleration are excellent.

Cons: The car is a little bit cramped and the back seats are as comfortable as we expect.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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).

Good Car For A College Kid Like Myself — good commuter car. nothing special as far as performance or build quality goes. the hubcaps really make the car stand-out and gives it a sharp look. fun car to drive but not the greatest car to go joy riding in.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's comfortable and I made it my own with a few minor appearance upgrades.

Cons: I wish it had more power/bigger engine

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is reliable

Cons: It is small.

Corolla — It's a good car just some things suck about it lol The roofing is poorly made. The handles cracked so had to buy new ones.. But it is a good car. I love my little car. It takes me places. Toyota is a good brand of cars.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It drives me around...

Cons: poorly made materials... handles r cheap
