2001 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


A nice car, nothing outstanding, but still a very worthy buy. As the reviewers mentioned, the Corolla is very reliable car - though I have only owned it for 3 years / 36,000 miles. The car does seem to be put together well; no loose parts or rattling. Some problems: back seat way too small (no leg room), the engine performance isn't great (particularly with the a/c on), and for some reason my car has always had a problem with shifting into reverse. That being said, overall, this is a good car.

Favorite Features

Automatic lights, temperature gauge, and the fact that there are no loose parts or rattling.

Suggested Improvements

Increase the size of the back seat...drastically, brakes need to be more responsive, and give the engine some more power.
