1996 Toyota Corolla 4dr Sedan


Bought this from the second owner 6 years ago. 5 speed stick with A/C. Now have 143,000 miles on it. Has never broken down on us. Other than a suspension job at 141,000 and a new a/c compressor at 143,000, never anything but standard maintenance. Northern car, bad winters but no rust. Last week, got 45 mpg on a 300 mile drive, with the a/c on. Not a fast or fancy car, dies on steep hills, not much pep for passing. But a great car if you want something reliable that is cheap to drive and won't leave you waiting for a tow. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

Best Features

Sound engine that uses little gas. 5 speed stick.

Worst Features

Better way to secure driver floor mat. DX engine would have given better performance passing and getting up hills with a car loaded with passengers and cargo.
