Great Reliable Car!
By decator on
2001 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
We bought this car new in May 2001, we now have 135K miles on it and still love it! The only issues we have had to deal with was replacing the clutch at 95K (driver fault) and simple maintenance. The front brake pads lasted until 120K (I check them regularly). I still average about 31mpg when its all city driving and 36 when I commute on the highway. We could afford a new car, but I will drive this one until it's last mile, and would not hesitate to buy another. With that said it is not perfect and there are drawbacks like interior size, road noise, etc.. But I am a believer that those are little things while reliability and affordability are the things that are harder to come by.
Gas mileage, still love the exterior look, reliability, 5-speed acceleration, great commuter.
Road noise, more room in back seat, fold down rear seat for access to trunk
