"I bought my '93 toyota corolla at the beginning of my senior year of college with 134,000 miles. I am now about to start my first year of graduate school (5 1/2 years later!!) and it is still running great!!! It now has 206,000 miles on it. I have driven it back and forth to San Francisco about 5 times (from LA).... it has never let me down! I am still a poor college student trying to finish school and I'm glad I have my corolla because it has saved me a lot of money!... Also, I am a girl, and was away at college for 4 years so would not really follow the oil changes, etc when they had to be done.. and it is still running strong.... I will definetly buy a new corolla when i finish with school..."
"My Corolla has almost 260,000 miles and is still as reliable as ever. This has been an excellent car for me, and though I would like a newer car with exciting features like power locks and windows, this car has proved to me that Toyotas are the way to go for reliability."
"My dad bought his new in '97 and handed it down to me. We have only had to replace the clutch and interior bulbs. Right now I'm coming up on 210,000 miles and the car runs absolutely perfect. If you don't run it hard, and keep up with regular maintenance there is no telling how long it can last. I would strongly recommend it to any first time driver simply because if you wreck it, you don't have much in it."
"Bought this car used in 2003 for my wife to get to and from work and after having a child, I now drive it 40 miles a day to get to work, and have never had any major problems with it. Runs perfectly and with normal oil changes and new brakes it's better than some newer cars that we've had. Toyota quality is no joke."
