1999 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan


Review

We were looking for a new vehicle in 1999. My wife suggested the corolla because her sister had a 1997 model. We looked at Ford, Chevys and Chyslers, but decided on the corolla. We only drive approximately 7500 miles per year and have had zero problems with the car, except for a dead battery. Just one minor crash into a wall, but it held up well. (The wife did it.)


Best Features

The gas mileage of course. Man, I dislike those large gas-sucking SUV's.


Worst Features

Some say the back seat needs to be larger, but I have never had a problem with it. So I would say, none.

1999 Toyota Corolla VE 4dr Sedan


Review

There's nothing fun or flashy about this car... but it holds up so well you don't care about that. I had the original brakes replaced at 115,000 miles and there was still plenty left on them. This car has been through hot and cold weather and never a problem. If you want reliability, get this car.


Best Features

Reliability, gas milage.


Worst Features

Toyota really stripped down the VE model to the bone. It came without a lot of accessories that would have been nice.

1999 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan


Review

This is my second Corolla, and wouldn't buy anything but a Toyota. These cars are extremely reliable. With just under 100000 miles, I've only had to change my starter, and that was a few months ago.


Best Features

Gas mileage is great! Very dependable.

Review

The Corolla has generally been a strong car. It's smooth, refined and suprisingly quick. The fuel economy is outstanding, over 37 mpg on the highway with an automatic. The interior is comfortable, although rear legroom is an issue. The feature list is . . . odd. This is probably due to the practice of adding packages, but my wife often chides me for having a car with power doors and windows, cruise, a/c, alarm and keyless entry, but no tachometer or power mirrors. The cruise control stalk occasionally brushes my knee during low speed turns, but this isn't dangerous. Taller drivers may encounter this problem.


Best Features

Excellent build quality. The interior is simple, yet not as spartan as that of a Civic. Ample power, safety and intuitive controls. The driver can operate most essential controls without removing a hand from the steering wheel.


Worst Features

One potentially serious problem: some 1999 Corollas may have problems with fuel injectors. Two failed on my car, and without my service contract, this would have led to a pricey fix. I don't believe that this is a common issue, but Toyota is aware of the problem.
