Review of the 2001 Toyota Corolla

  • Reliable but bland, the 2001 Toyota Corolla is a conservative pick in the economy sedan class.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Smooth ride, spunky motor, tight build quality, refined bits and pieces, optional side airbags.

  • Cons

    Cramped and uncomfortable interior, mushy suspension, non-descript styling, lousy stereo ergonomics.

  • 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.

Great deal

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

I just recently purchased my '01 Corolla S automatic for way under blue book with 116K miles on it and couldn't be happier. The handling, turn radius and overall feel of the car is so much more luxurious than that of my 1986 Corolla that I traded in years ago with 281K miles on it. Weird thing though was as soon as I got into the vehicle, it felt like I was sitting back in my 1986 model. Toyota has pretty much kept all the dials and switches in the same place, except for the radio, so I didn't have to "learn" anything new. Love the sunroof, the engine is super quiet and even though the exterior is typical Toyota boring, the interior is very nice. I'm happy with it.




Reliable and sometimes fun

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

This is my second Corolla and it is a great every day vehicle. The only 2 times this car did not start was dead battery and when dealership overfilled it with oil. From handling and power point of view this car performs fairly well - it is easily controllable and very predictable. I found the car to be very comfortable for long rides as well, even at higher speeds the engine noise is manageable and the mileage is great.

Esther's interior departing

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

I love my car but I am very disappointed with what is happening to my interior. I have already replaced my exterior around two of my windows. This is truly a problem with the manufacture I think. This is causing me money to fix and stress because of the way the car is looking. This is my second Toyota and I can not believe what is going on. When I went to the dealership where I purchased the car they did not show interest in fixing the car but for me to purchase. I am trying to find out if this is a recall.
