1998 Toyota Corolla VE 4dr Sedan


I have driven over 280,000 miles in mostly urban traffic with some expressway also. This car is not a good long distance hauler due to its 3 speed tranny. I should have spent extra and gotten the 4 speed. Thank god they don't make those anymore. It's an excellent around town car even with all the miles I still get about 28mpg which is what the EPA says I should get. Mechanically very reliable, although lately I replaced the mounts with aftermarket units and I ruined the car. It now shakes and vibrates to the point of being intolerable to all but the shortest trips.

Best Features

Reliability, get in the morning and know it's gonna start peace of mind.

Worst Features

Since this car is no longer made, its pointless except if you're gonna buy a used one DO NOT GET THE 3 SPEED.
