Corolla, Not a Bad Little Car
By Robert Gould on


1997 Toyota Corolla 4dr Sedan


I was the third owner of this Base Corolla with 97,000 miles. It was a little beat up, but in great running condition. Had to put a timing belt on at 100,000 miles, put some speakers in the back"only came with two up front" and cd player. I have not had any mechanical problems, runs well and rides like a compact. The Clear Coat finish was flaking a bit on the roof and truck when I bought it and has continued, not sure if it pays to have it fixed. I payed $4800 in February 2009. Overall this car is nice, not very big and does not ride like our 96 Camry. Good cheap car.

Best Features

Gas Millage, Very Reliable!

Worst Features

Fix the flaking clear coat finish, Cruise Control in the base model.
