2000 Toyota Corolla VE 4dr Sedan


Review

Purchased car with 93K on it. Had owned five previous Toyotas and ran most of them past 200K. This one is an oil burner - uses 1 quart per 400 miles. Toyota does not recognize that it is a design defect although it seems to be very prevalent in these cars (98-2002 Corollas). If you are looking to purchase one - be sure to check the exhaust pipe for excessive black soot and look in the oil filler cap for oil sludge (check underside of cap for black crumbly deposits and look inside oil filler for brown coating - if it has these features I recommend to stay away from it). Also the engine light just came on - not sure yet what this problem is. Struts are worn out as well.


Best Features

Car looks nice and reasonably comfortable. Fuel economy is above average.


Worst Features

Own up to oil sludge problem in these Corollas

2000 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan


Review

It might not be the most powerful car I ever driven, but it has never let me down. The fuel consumption is excellent and the service cost is really low. So far I only needed regular maintenance on this car, nothing major (currently at almost 140k).


Best Features

The low fuel consumption


Worst Features

Just keep it as it is.

2000 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan


Review

I had it for six years and had only one problem with it. One of the the automatic window stopped working, but repair was unexpensive. The car in general is very reliable. While having it, I didn't care too much about gas prices going up because it is an economy car. I recommend this car.


Best Features

gas mileage, reliability. Easy to sell.


Worst Features

I don't like recent exterior design of the Corolla, and it is only reason that I didn't buy a new Toyota Corolla again after I sold mine.

Review

Not the flashiest of vehicles, but definately the most reliable car I have driven. I bough my car used with 23k miles on it in '03, and have put about 25k miles a year on it driving between WA and OR states. Not a single problem. Engine power isn't bad, and fuel economy is awesome. I get about 40 mpg on the hwy with my 5 sp manual.


Best Features

No features on my car, I got the base model :( only has a/c.


Worst Features

Better styling, a quieter, more comfortable ride (although not bad for a small car)
