I bought this car last year with 200 000 km on it for 900 bucks.
Changed the 4 shocks(didn't have to but back end sagged a bit) and changed the oil.
Doesn't burn oil still and now has 240 000.
I have never seen a car so reliable. car handles great, even better that my accord.
Once a honda man, now a toyota man.
I'll keep it until i fall through the floor.

Well, I owned a 99 corolla from new until 2005 when I sold it for 4 grand. At that point it had a little over 315K miles on it, didn't burn oil, no lights, and everything that was in it worked.
I had to replace oil every 3k miles, but that is about it. It handled better then a civic, got better mpg, and was faster off the line, not to mention cheaper to insure.
I would love to get my hands on a 99 corolla with a blown motor with the options I had in mine, it is a perfect candidate for a 2zz swap.
I have owned over 18 cars in my life, and nothing on the planet will take a beating like a Toyota. Not Honda, and nothing American can come close.

I bought my 1999 Corolla VE out of desperation. Needed something to replace my 1993 Accord with almost 300K miles (no kidding). I wish I would have taken my time, because I'm not loco for this car. It is too basic. I bought it in Nov. 2007 with 76K miles for $9K! I felt it was too much, but OMG it was a Toyota. Quality this, quality that. Yeah, this car can take a beating, and still run its little sluggish heart. But it is ugly in the back LOL! It looks mad as hell in the back with it's squinting eye taillight design LOL! It's probably mad that it can't perform worth words I cannot say at church. If ANYTHING, get an LE model and not the VE, at least you can have power everything. VERY LEAST!
Can anyone tell me how to access the rear speakers in a 2000 toyota corolla sedan? I bought some new speakers but I can't even figure out how to take the old ones out! Anyone that knows how to change ...
My wife called last week from the Target parking lot and said the car would start but wouldn't stay on. When I got in it, if I gave it gas it would stay on. I drove it around the parking lot and not...
My question is: there are obvious differences between the two cars - brand, engine (focus 2.0L vs corolla 1.8L), various features, interior/exterior looks...but to me - someone who has driven the sam...
