"I am the second owner of a 1998 Corrolla VE with 165,000 miles. The car was bulletproof until it hit 150,000 miles. Since then it has completely fallen apart. I have had to replace all 4 interior door handles, 2 exterior door handles (very expensive with paint), both front headlights, the starter, radiator, oil pan, etc. This car also has some interesting electrical problems. The center stack lights work occassionally and the reverse lights only work when they want to. I have had this checked out be several mechanics, including the dealer, none of which know what is wrong. I have been told to get the car rewired for $1000. The fuel economy also has begun to vary widely. I drive the same route week to week and my fuel occonomy ranges from 19 mpg to 36 mpg. No one can tell me why this happens. I hate this car and cannot wait to get rid of it. I want my old honda back and am going to go buy another one."
"I hate that this car doesn't have any power! I will say, though, that it is always nice to see that I get 38-40 mpg on the freeway. I have never had a mechanical problem and I have put 125,000+ miles. This has been a reliable car for my family."
