Pros: "Great price, mileage efficiency (30 + mph )"

Cons: "none"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This car and has over 130,000 miles on it and all it needs is regular oil changes and tires when they wear out. I did replace the interior door handle, but that was cheap to buy and install. I think I paid about $7 for the handle. I also changed the MAF sensor, also inexpensive and easy to do. No need to bring it to the shop for that. I will look for another when I need to retire it. 27 mpg in the city, 33-34 on the highway."

"Good design both inside & out. Well made car. Made in Tennessee even though it's a Toyota. Would advise family and friends to buy used or new Corollas."

"I bought this car because I wanted something cheap, reliable, and easy on gas. It has served me well for two years. After about 140,000 miles on it, I started to have to do increasing amounts of part replacement though. It is almost time for me to sell it b/c its value is at the point where I don't think its worth it for me to keep fixing it."

"This car also has automatic lock and automatio start, whic is good in the winter in Nebraska. You can start the car indoors, its locked so no one can steal it, and wait till it warms up, such a neat feature. It is beige with darker beige inside and brown. Its a nice little car and has served me well. Easy on the gas and easy to drive."

Cons: "Not very good leg room in the back seats"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"We bought this 2002 car in 2001 new from the dealership...and we have absolutely no regrets. The car has been super reliable. The only money we have put into it is the regular maintenance (oil changes, tire changes/rotations, brakes --although brakes only needed to be changed twice in 12 years). We love our corolla so much we bought a 1997 model from a dear friend of ours, that one only has 95,000 and is running like a champ. Unfortunately, due to our recent adoption of our third little one, we need to sell our '97 in order to buy something more spacious (Toyota Sienna). The only con about this car is the space in the back seats, not very roomy."
