After my first car (a Mazda 1300, 1975) this is the best car I've ever had. Economical, reliable and fast. If you take care of this car I think it may last forever. The only problem I had was an oil leak. It seems that this was the hair in the soup on this model. I fixed it myself but with some pain. If you have this problem I advise you to replace first the crankshaft seal. You may save money, time and some brain cells if you do this first. If just somebody would have told me this, I wouldn't have replaced everything else before to got there, but I finally fixed it. My brother is driving it now. He loved it too.
Economical, small, fast, soft steering. Easy to fix.
Brought this car 9/04 with 170,000 miles to run errands, thought I'd lost it. I have a 07 Mountaineer but I love my 91 corolla too. I can get a new mountaineer but it might be hard to find a corolla. It's small but it's packing power, fun & great on gas! I have been hit twice by older cars and only a tiny dent. This is one SAFE car!
I've had quiet a few cars, all American, but this Toyota is the best ever. I bought it with 163,000 miles on it and now it has 241,000 and is still going! It's only ever needed minor repairs: brakes, tires, battery, starter. It still gets great gas mileage. I love my Corolla!
I bought this car for my wife a few years back and I want to tell you that this little car has been the best car we have owned thus far. Fuel economy has been outstatnding (approx. 40MPG), maintenance a breeze (I do it all myself), reliability excellent and with 195,000 miles on it, runs like new. The A/C and cruise control also work too. Great!!!!
A/C still works, Power everthing, all still functional.
I purchased my car in 1998 and 7 years later it has never let me down! Unfortunately the body has not fared as well and I have to get rid of it :( I am picking up a Geo Prizm today, (same as the Corolla..sense a pattern here?)
The pep of the engine. A 14 year old car has no business being zippy!
The body needs improvement. It's much like a tin-can on wheels.
