Great car to own
By Rima on
1997 Toyota Corolla DX 4dr Sedan
The car is very reliable. I bought it
new and in the 7 years I owned it, it
only broke once (minor repair - starter
cable wore off). It gets great mileage,
both in the city and on the highway. It
is comfortable to drive, and spacious
enough for 5 people. Good investment if
you ask me.
The interior design is very nice. I
love the storage compartment between
the two front seats and the two cup
holders. The pockets on both the
passenger and driver sides hold maps,
pens and bills for tolls rather nicely.
The rear seats fold down - great for
oversized items in the trunk.
There is no cruise control in the
standard model. Also, the wipers only
have 3 speeds to choose from. When the
rain is very light, it is annoying to
keep switching wipers on and off. It is
very noisy in the cabin on the highway
even with the windows closed.
