Excellent for the money.

by from Tucson, AZ on June 23, 2010

Extremely reliable, handles well on the highway, good feel for the road, decent gas mileage. Fine for 2 people, any more then that is very uncomfortable in the rear. We'd buy another one.

Greatest Subcompact Ever!

I have been driving this car for close to 4 years now, and this car is so inexpensive to maintain and gas up. Everyone already knows how reliable this car is, and it has yet to fail me. Of course, it gets kinda cramped, but most Corolla drivers don't have passengers, so the space issue can be resolved by simply sliding the front seats back. The audio system works great, and there is no need for an aftermarket system. This car gives me gas mileage that's better than the EPA estimate because I'm not a leadfoot, and so I don't spend a lot of money on gas.

NOT a Winter Car

I have been driving the LE, and while it is a zippy little thing in the summer, it cannot hold up to long Buffalo winters. It gets stuck in snow constantly, slides, and is rather terrifying to drive in snowy conditions, no matter how slow and safe one drives. It is a good quality vehicle, very bland in appearance but gas mileage is phenomenal, and it is a very sturdy, reliable vehicle. Very low maintenance costs. Just don't try to manage your way downtown in the dead of January in it.

Best Car For The Money

Bought this car in 2002, it is now 2015 and i have clocked in over 230,000 km on it. I have not had a single part to replace worth over $50 in the 13 years i have been driving it. I have only changed ...
Bought this car in 2002, it is now 2015 and i have clocked in over 230,000 km on it. I have not had a single part to replace worth over $50 in the 13 years i have been driving it. I have only changed the battery once. It is bland, but the gas mileage makes up for it. Super reliable, recommend to anyone as their first car, or if they need something cheap and reliable.

I bought this car in mid august 2012 and I have owned it for a month. It had 75k on the engine and it purrs like a kitten. The acceleration is good, the handling is fair and the ride is choppy like a small car. The gas mileage is great, I'm totally content in that area. Overall I am well satisfied.

Very Good Used Car

I had been looking for a car for a while and finally had Nichole Cerkowski, who is a dealer at Toyota of Clifton Park on the hunt for me. When I came home from college on May 14th, she had the car in my driveway a few hours after I arrived and I bought this car the next day. It had only 56k miles on it which is very good for being a 2002. It is so reliable and absolutely amazing on gas. I fill it about every week and even am able to take long trips with it. I would buy this car over and over again every time! Definitely look into Toyota of Clifton Park and ask for Nichole because she will give you a great car for a great price!!

I bought this car in 2002. The vehicle is bland on the inside, but not to the point of annoying you. It gets great mileage, and you feel good when you put gas into this vehicle. Of course it could use a bit more space on the inside, it exceeds expectations, so naturally, I would recommend this car without any reservations.

I bought this car with 88,000 miles. Found out it goes through about a quart of oil every 700 miles. Researched this and found that this is common in this year of car and it will get worse as time goes on. The only fix is a new engine. I thought they were suppose to last longer than this. Also shocks are shot. Doesn't smoke or leak but the tailpipe is black. Beware.
