Very Reliable

1997 Toyota Corolla Sedan DX 4dr Sedan

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.

Review

I've been driving this car for the past 3 yrs. It has never caused any problems whatsoever, and I've been communting to and from school pretty much every day. It still runs very well, and is very responsive. Drivers seat is very comfortable as well as the back seat. Trunk has a good amount of space, I just had to install a trunklight, no problem. Speakers were kinda low quality. The one problem I had was the door locks broke, but the dealer had that fixed in no time. Its a very reliable car, and I would recommend it to people looking for a realiable used car. It's very practical for a student/teenager.

Review

This car is supposed to get at least 26 mpg. Over the past years it has only gotten 17!!! I don't live where there is tones of stop and go driving either. This car is not what it's made out to be. The engine is very high strung and noisey. And, if you don't mind having every car passing you when you're getting on the interstate, have at it!

Review

the corolla is a great car for anyone. It gets from point a to b wonderfully and it is very reliable. i've had mine for a little more than a year, its got over 100000 miles, and all i've had to do besides change the oil is put in a new battery and a belt that had worn out.

Great Car!

Review

I bought my 1997 Corolla when I turned 16, as a first car. I've put that car through a lot of abuse (rare oil changes, squealing tires, etc.) and I've never had a bad problem with it. It's held up beautifully. I was even rear-ended by a brand new Cadillac, and the Cadillac was totaled, and my Corolla had a slight scratch on the rear bumper...it was amazing. While it's not the most fancy car, it's certainly the most reliable, well built, and all around practical car. I highly reccomend the Corolla, especially as a first car, because it holds up so well, and needs little to no matinence.

Review

If you want a dependable, reliable car with good gas mileage, this is it! I have 73K miles (purchased used with 27K miles) and no problems or repairs (except normal oil change, tires, air filter). Tho not fancy, I can depend I will get where I need to go, I've never been stranded, and love my Corolla! Also good acceleration for a small engine/car.

I highly recommend this vehicle for anyone interested in a car that starts every time. Keep gas in it and worry about more important things in life than your car.
