1997 Toyota Corolla Sedan DX 4dr Sedan


Review

This is the first toyota car I have ever owned, and I would be hard-pressed to buy anything else. I had a lot of problems with all of my GM automobiles. This car has always gotten me where I wanted to go. Toyota is definitely a more reliable car than GM. Why would you buy anything else?


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is the size of the toyota corolla. It is very easy to park and maneuverability is great. The car is very easy to handle.


Suggested Improvements

I would make more room in the center of the car for carrying drinks and maybe put a few pockets for change or carrying other small things. I would make the glove compartment bigger.

Review

We've had this 1997 Corolla since December 1999. It's a well built, dependable car. Good styling, cranks every time, well-designed inside and out. It's easy to manuever in traffic and it's very easy to park. We have no plans to sell it; we'll keep it for many years to come. We traded an '87 Ford Taurus for this car. The Taurus gave us nothing but trouble. It was always in the shop for mechanical repairs. We've have never had to put the Corolla in the shop. Keep up the good work, Toyota!!


Favorite Features

Easy to drive, easy to park.

Review

I have never had even one problem with this car. It is the most practical, durable car, and I wish I didn't have to part with it ever. It is the number one worry-free car. As long as its taken care of properly, it will far outlast any other car.
