1997 Toyota Corolla DX 4dr Sedan


We bought this car in May 1997. Sold it as we had to go out of the country in Oct 2005. We put on 90K miles on it. We crisscrossed the continent with this car. We lived in DC area and drove it to places as far as St Louis, New Orleans, Atlanta, Boston, Toronto, Quebec City and Ottawa. We did this with two kids, stroller, suitcases and other stuff! The car never ever let us down. Bullet proof, absolutely reliable. All I did was regular oil changes. Only had to change brake pads, timing belt, tires and of course the battery. After all this the car felt like new while driving, gave amazing mileage (30-34 in city, 37-40 highway). We felt really sad selling it. Lucky lady who bought it from us!

Best Features

Easy to drive, small car, very small turning radius: get out of tight spaces easily. Great mileage.

Worst Features

Could have added map pockets on seat backs, better cup holders. Rear cup holders. Cover plate for the opening in center console to prevent things from falliing off.
