"The summary says it all. I purchased this car new. It has been used primarily as a commuter--30 to 70 miles per trip. It has never failed to start and get me to my destination. The most expensive repair it has required is replacement of the tensioner for the serpentine belt. Not bad for 150,000 plus miles."

This is a great car,

My Toyota

"dependable,and great on gas. This car gets close to 40 miles to the gallon gas on the highway. It's in great condition. There is some very little rust on the side and a few nicks on the hood. On the roof it has some very small dings that look like it was possibly from hail. It has new tires and recently replaced front and rear breaks. I love this little car and I'm only getting rid of it because I'm moving and no longer need it."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I received this car from an elderly relative when he was no longer permitted to drive. There was a bad paint job put on it, but as far as reliability it is terrific. You can get upwards of 38 miles/gallon highway even when using A/C. Repairs are relatively inexpensive. There is a little rust and some interior wear, but that was largely due to the way it was cared for, not because of Toyota. If you need an inexpensive commuter car or a first car for your son/daughter you can't beat it. Standard radio with cassette is unimpressive. Maybe a little tight for a person over 6'2" but at 6"0 I have no problem."

"Very dependable and 40 miles to the gallon, even at this age. Tires and oil have been kept up with. The ac is needing a charge every year, but not leaking oil or burning oil. Bought this car with 100k and now I've put that same amount on and I would by nothing but this car all over again. It's too bad they didn't make a corolla pickup this this mileage and low towing capabilities. I suppose a chop shop could make one out of it."

Cons: "can't really think of any"

"My 2001 Toyota Corolla has been amazing, the best reliable car I've ever had. No problems outside normal maintenance and I love the front wheel drive - excellent for winter conditions. I'm pushing 200,000 miles and it still runs great but have a few rust spots around the wheel wells and rocker panels but I guess that's to be expected for a car with that many miles and 13 years old. Mechanics say I can get 300,000 with scheduled maintenance because the engine is still in good shape. It's been a great car and I'll hate to trade it in or sell it when it comes time for a new car. I'll definitely look into another Corolla - a good quality car, extremely dependable and economical."
