I drive my 97 Toyota Corolla around
town for the most part; about 11,000
miles per year. The car operates
wonderfully in town. It has good pick-
up and is nimble around turns. It has
enough room to fit 4 passengers
comfortably. The trunk space is
surprisingly roomy as well. It is low
to the ground, punches forward when
you tap the accelerator, and corners
on a dime.
The Overdrive button allows the driver
to deactivate 4th gear and use only 1
thru 3.. On the highway, punch the OD
button and jump ahead of traffic!
The A/C system has very simple
controls. It takes some fiddling to
get just the right temperature. On hot
sunny days it can be impossible to
keep the car cool, and the A/C saps
quite a bit of engine power
