Daughter's first car
By alshoe on
1999 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan
Just purchased this car for our
daughter used within the last week. It
has 57,000 miles. Was looking for a
reliable car, good safety rating and
easy to drive. The Corolla definately
fits this description. It has the 4 spd
automatic, power windows and door
locks. It has a pretty peppy 4 cylinder
engine and expect good fuel economy.
Climate controls work well. Should be a
good car for our daughter.
Contrasting dials on the dashboard
black on light background, contrast to
red on black background at night.
Daytime running lights and sensor to
automatically turn on head lights.
ABS was an option on this model, which
it does not have. Cruise control would
be nice too which may have been
available only on the LE model.
Update. Our daughter's Corolla now has 85,000 miles on it. Just routine maintenance and on its second set of tires since we have owned it. Uses no oil and still gets great gas mileage. Have to think hard for any negative points. Car is parked outside, paint beginning to fade in spots. Interior, showing some wear. Have replaced front brakes and rotors. Also had to replace the driver side power window motor. Overall has been a great car and most important, a reliable car for our daughter.
