1999 Toyota Corolla Sedan CE 4dr Sedan


Review

My great-grandmother bought this car new, and when she passed it went onto my grandmother, and now it's mine. With 265,000 miles on it, this car is so unbelievably reliable! I have never broken down. Its only problems are a leak in the power steering fluid (an $800 fix, but no problem if you just top off the fluid every other week), broken interior lights and weak door handles that break every couple of years. This car is such a ridiculous value if you need something that will get you where you need to go-- and I get at least 29 miles to the gallon, sometimes more.


Best Features

This car is durable, and did I mention reliable?! Of course, it's a '99, it doesn't have any fancy features, but it has everything you need.


Worst Features

The ceiling is pretty low if you're tall-- and the ceiling liner is starting to come down, my boyfriend is only 5'8" and it rubs on his head.

Review

I bought this car for $4000 almost 3 years ago. have changed only tires, filters and the serpentine. The a/c is amazing, the MPG are great. The only problems are cosmetic like the center drawer door broke and the interior roof covering is peeling off. I bought it in Florida and recently shipped it to Puerto Rico and it is still unstoppable with 168,000 miles and counting!


Best Features

MPG, reliability and the A/C


Worst Features

Nothing but the interios ceiling thing!!!

Review

My husbands car has almost 200,000 mi on it and you just can't kill it! It just goes forever if you keep up with oil changes every 3k and proper maint. I just wish they would make it roomier for people up to 5'8" -6' tall. That is truly the only complaint. I am only too happy to get a small economical car that is a good buy! Not to mention tremendous resale value. I spoke to two owners that have sold their 1999 Toyota Corolla's between $2,300.00 - 3,200.00. Just goes to show the public still has confidence in Toyota! I used to be a Honda person, but switched to Toyota after two of my Honda's needed a Transmission at 180,000 mi. - Bye Bye Honda! Just bought two more Toyotas for my family


Best Features

Excellent factory installed stereo.


Worst Features

Needs more leg room.

Review

I received this car from my aunt and uncle when I got my license. Since then, it's been in 2 wrecks (1 major, 1 minor) and it's still going strong. The mpg are amazing. I can get to and from Toledo (about 2 hour drive both ways) with only $20 bucks.


Best Features

Mpg, great in snow, handles nice, durability


Worst Features

More room in the back seat, real sized spare tire(not that doughnut thing, not good if you get a flat), taller middle compartment

Review

I bought this Corolla for 500 dollars with 60,000 from someone who hit a tree and left the car to sit in an alley. I purchased a new front bumper, headlights and windshield and fixed the car. I am still driving the car 3 years later and have put 70,000 miles later. The car runs strong, I have only bought tires, oil changes and a battery. This car is amazing and is great on gas. The car is a bit slow especially when merging on the freeway but what does a person expect from a Corolla. I will buy another Corolla without hesitation. Thank You Toyota. I love my cheap little car.


Best Features

Sunroof, gas mileage (30+mpg), reliability, sound system, interior quality, its paid for :)


Worst Features

Slow but its an older model, does not handle well in the snow. I really can't complain about anything.
