Worst car i've ever owned

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

We're scrapping the car today. It made it to 90k miles. It has the following problems: * The motor (1ZZFE) was built with a design flaw, but Toyota kept using it. Hundreds of people on the internet have reported the same thing. It burns oil until it hits a point where every 100 miles it burns 1 quart of oil. The engine went bad and needed a replacement starting at 50k miles * The catalytic converter is dead. * The rotors are bad and braking feels choppy. * The driver door handle simply broke off when I tried to open the door. * The clutch went bad at 50k miles. * Some smaller issues like a leak somewhere that mechanics couldn't find, causing repeated engine lights and EVAP codes.

Terrible interior, terrible gas mileage

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

I bought brand new summer 2000 (as a starving college student). My converter died early and I had terrible gas mileage. My interior has just collapsed. I mean it's a cheap car, but really, Toyota can't make an interior headliner that looks nice for at least 5 years?

Good choice

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

My Toyota Corolla is a reliable, fun to drive vehicle. It is easy to maneuver, holds to the road, gets good gas mileage, and maintenance has been minimum.

What's New for 2001

For the 2001 Toyota Corolla, the midgrade CE trim replaces entry-level VE, top-line LE replaces midgrade CE and a sporty new CE-based S model debuts. Front and rear lighting is restyled, and the fascia up front is tweaked and now includes a chrome-ringed grille. An internal trunk release has been added, along with a push-button fresh/recirculate control for the ventilation system. Two new colors replace an equal number of shades that are fading away.

I noticed that most of the people defending the Corolla 2001 are actually owners of Corolla 99 or 2000. I also want to correct a misconception here. I did not buy my Corolla 2001 for use as a "s...
