1996 Toyota Corolla DX 4dr Sedan


Review

Toyota is probably the best car you can
buy for the money you spend. I have the
1.8 liter engine in my Corolla. It give
me good performance with good economy.
My Corolla hardly ever needs anything
done to it. It is the most reliable car
I have ever owned.
It sure beats the American car I
previously owned


Best Features

It's economy, durability and performance.


Worst Features

The seats are too firm. The ride on rough roads is very stiff.

Review

I have had this car for 7 years and
over 200,000 kms. In all that time i
had to replace a clutch, a waterpump,
and the front exhaust pipe for a total
of under $1000 in unscehduled maintence
which in way better than any other car
I have had or know of. I had this car
since my early 20's and drove it very
hard the first few years, never broke a
thing.
Car still gets close to 40 mpg on the
highway. The 5-speed gives the car a
lot more umph especially off the line
and highway passing. I will drive this
car until it dies which at the rate it
has been going so far will be years
down the road. Best investment i have
ever made.


Best Features

Fun to drive with a 5-speed, amazing gas mileage.


Worst Features

More power wouldn't hurt, suspension is kinda soft and floaty.

Review

This car has been excellent! I got it
used from my Grandfather who used it
to deliver the mail in the country.
The car body sure took a beating on
all those dirt roads, but I have had
no mechanical problems with it thus
far. I have had it for over 4 years.
It gets GREAT gas mileage even in the
city. Even with such high mileage, it
has performed great--unlike my
parents' American-made cars(GMC Yukon
and Ford Mustang) that have had MAJOR
problems within 2 years of buying
brand new. I am very impressed with
Toyota and would highly recommend this
car to everyone.


Best Features

GREAT gas mileage. well-made.


Worst Features

needs more room in the back seat. not much leg room back there. seats are not very comfortable.

Review

This is actually my wife's car, but as
a 6'2" person, this car is horible for
comfort. The door jam is small
compared to similar cars.

The vehicle is very underpowered and
gets lousy gas milage at that!


Best Features

It's fairly dependable. Not as much as my Ford Ranger, but more so than my 1990 SHO.


Worst Features

Size, engine, 'fun to drive' The vehicle just feels cheaply made. Besides the normal stuff that breaks, it's silly when things like the rubber around the doors must be replaced so frequently.

I have enjoyed my corolla since I have
had it I have driven it from Texas to
Ohio it has been a great car for
transporting my children when they were
little. Though now they are older and
my son 15 and at 311 playing football,
when I pick up he and his friends from

players can we fit in a sardine can!!!
Other then that this has been the best
car I have ever had!!! I HATE TO SEE
HER GO!!!
