"No doubt, that this is my first car. I bought it for 1,000! When it had 217k. It isn't the best but it gets you where you want to go. Toyota were always know for there long lasting and reliability vehicles. This 1997 Toyota Corolla DX, still runs like a boss. It has 227k!, starts up like a charm. Even in the winter, it sounded different in a way, but it still ran very well. As for everything else, it's old car with simple basic controls and designs for those who aren't to high tech nowadays."

"Bought this car in 2001 for under $6k. After 15 yrs & over 100,0000 miles, I am looking for newer one! Reclining passenger seat & drop down rear seats make it versatile little vehicle. A friend compared it to Captain Kangaroo's jacket (Google it young ones.) because he was continually amazed at what I sometimes pulled out of it: floor lamp; ceiling track lighting; lingerie chest; rolled 8x12 carpet, sliding door pet panel, 2 campers+8X10 cabin tent+2-man raft+all camping gear."

"I will be parting soon with this car which I've had since 2000. It is very reliable and for the most part I haven't had to spend lots of money on repairs but did have it painted several years ago due to fading. It doesn't have many "bells and whistles" but I would still recommend this model to anyone. Remember it is from the 20th century (1997)."

"You can't go wrong with Toyota. Best-quality cars ever made! My fave was a 1983 Corolla GTS twin-cam fastback, which I bought new and lasted me 13 yrs and 189,000 miles 'til the engine died (hey, even the best doesn't last forever)."
