1993 Toyota Corolla Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased my '93 Corolla new for just over 13K. Best money I ever spent. Over 12 years later it has 238,000+ miles! I've done regular maintenance, oil changed every 2500 miles and tire rotatons religiously. Had to replace parts such as the clutch, 3 alternators, a starter etc... Original exhaust still! Nothing unusual though. I'm considering a Matrix now. Will use another dealer though. I did not like the one I bought this car from.


Best Features

Rock solid Reliable! good gas mileage, avg 35 MPG.


Worst Features

None.

1993 Toyota Corolla Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

I can't help it if I have to keep praising my experience with my very dependable 1993 Corolla! There's no doubt in my mind that it was the BEST choice of a low-cost and reliable means of transportation in the world. Other than just an instance of a cracked exhaust manifold and a loose battery connection/terminal, my Corolla just will NOT quit! Whether it's through the hollows of Appalachia or out in the desolate western High Plains, it can be counted on to take me just about anywhere. Although I had purchased this Corolla with about 35,000 miles, it still keeps going after 300,000 miles added on over the years (currently just over 335,000 miles)!


Best Features

One of my favorite features of my 1993 Corolla are the very comfortable seats, as they are just right for proper lumbar and thigh support without being too plush or too hard. Another favorite is the 5-speed manual transmission! Better acceleration and better fuel mileage are the clear advantages.


Worst Features

My Corolla has some problems, particularly the hardware and integrity. A rattle or two can be heard (forgivable due to a new design/carbody beginning in 1993), as well as a few electrical glitches (dome light doesn't work since I've purchased the car). Also, the 1.6-liter engine is somewhat weak.

1993 Toyota Corolla Sedan DX 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this car from the dealer with 12000 miles. It now has 185,000 miles and has had 2 repairs. It still gets the same 38 miles per gallon as when it was new. It is a pleasure to drive and very comfortable for it's class. It has never failed us - not even once.


Best Features

Gas mileage, reliability


Worst Features

Paint is peeling at 10 years. Headlights are getting cloudy.

1993 Toyota Corolla Sedan DX 4dr Sedan


Review

I too am the lucky owner of a Corolla DX sedan and I can safely say that it has definitly been one of the best automotive investments that I've ever made. The 1.8L engine is pretty snappy for its size, and the manual transmission is very smooth. No major repairs save an alternator and a starter but that was after I had driven it for over 90K miles! I've owned this car for 11 years and it never ceases to make me proud to own it.
