The Corollinator as she's well known as.

1997 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car out of college cause it was a decent looking car and it had all the options extra options I was looking for like CD, power roof, alloy wheels, spoiler, wood trim, etc. at 12, 000 mi. I detailed cars for a living through school and she gets a good hows your father once a summer. It now has 93,000 and I've only had to put one set of front brakes and tires on it. That's it. I took it in for brakes at 60k and they told me "Nah, you got another 20 some odd thousand left on them. To this day, the car has a great finish, one crack in the vinyl on the side of the drivers seat. If you want a decent car that runs like a tank....Corollinator!

1 Quality Car

1997 Toyota Corolla DX 4dr Sedan

Review

Toyota's Corolla simply can't be beat for a quality car. My car has over 104,000 miles on it and I wouldn't hesitate for a minute taking it for a trip across the country. I average 39 m.p.g. on the highway and 32 m.p.g. in the city. Not too bad for a 4 door small car. It's easy to park and manuver in city driving. Both rear seats drop for extra luggage space. The A/C and heater will simply blow you away. For long distance driving it can become a little cramped, but not terribly so. If you do the basic stuff to take care of it, it'll reward you with years of cheap, fun driving.

Bought at 83k year and half ago. Now has 110k with no major problems. I had to do brake job which I know at the time of purchase. Still you feel like it can go upto 200k without any problems.

Review

I've had this car for over 6 years now. Unfortunately, I will need to part with it as the kids are older and don't fit comfortably in it any longer. I have only changed the tires on my car, nothing else. I change the oil of course. I loved this car and am sorry that I must part with it.

One Great Car

Review

I bought this car after it had been wrecked. It was easy to have fixed and you can't tell it has ever been wrecked. It gets the same mileage as a new Corolla. It also has some get up and go when you want it to. The biggest problem I have noted is that the seat belts could be a little sturdier. I had to replace the drivers side as it did not work correctly. The people at my local dealership say this is a VERY common problem. Also, I hate were the cup holder is. However, I really love this car and do not regret buying it.

Best Compact Sedan on the Market!

Review

I recently purchased my car (two months ago) and I have fell in love with it. It looks great, it’s reliable, and it has great gas mileage. I have the DX model, with all of the possible features, and I have to say...it is the "Queen" of all other 1997 Corollas. I would definitely recommend a Corolla to anyone.

Review

This car is the most reliable car out there. I had this car for a long time. It never gave me any problem. I did not have to change anything on this car. I had the car oil change every 4,000 miles and it still run smoothly. I had a 98 ford before and it gave me nothing but problem. if you want reliable car pick a toyota.

Review

I have had this car for 2 and half years and it hasn't had any trouble at all. Just change the oil and go. Decent acceleration for a 1.8 liter engine.
