1998 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan


We bought this car new. My wife had it, then my daughter and now it's my turn with 168,000 miles on it. Still rides like new but gas tank lever is broken, hood latch sticks, and it uses about 1 qt of oil every 1100 miles. It is about the most reliable car we have ever had other than our Toyota RAV4.

Best Features

Gentle quiet ride and quite reliable.

Worst Features

For some reason nearly everyone I know that owns a 98 or 99 Corolla starts using oil after about 90 thousand miles. No big deal but certainly is a negative.
