Corolla ce: small but efficient.

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

My corolla 2001 car is a small but efficient car. It provides good performance for my purpose of driving to school and work every day. The thing I like most about my car is that I can save a lot of expense of gas on this vehicle. Also, the small size is convenient for parking especially when I live in a crowded city like San Diego. I trust my car because Toyota has excellent reliability. Although my car is an old car, the engine is always consistent and smooth when performing. On the other hand, the car does not provide auto system for locking and opening the passenger doors, which makes me spend a little more time when having passengers with me. The ac still works well, and the audio is also in excellent condition. The car seats are comfortable enough with adjustable features like lying back or sliding up front. However, the seats cannot be adjusted higher or lower. The only big problem with this car is that it consumes, which means I have to change the oil more often like once every 3000 miles. Since my car is well maintained, the engine is in excellent condition even though it has been running for almost twenty years. The car is a sedan with four doors and limited space. Therefore, it works best for personal use rather than being used in a family setting. This car is an excellent choice for students who want to save during college. Overall, this is a great car with great value, and it is easy to drive and maintain.

Takes on LA traffic like a Pro !!

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

This car has been very reliable for my boyfriend and I. We take long car trips quite often in Southern California, so we need to have a car that is decent in gas mileage and doesn't break down every 10,000 miles. It is easy to handle in traffic and the steering is responsive but not to delegate to the touch. I have been is several car accidents previously to having this car so feeling safe is important to me. I love driving it. Repairs are simple to do. We have had some issues with the brakes recently but so long as you give it some TLC it should last you a while.

Old reliable Toyota Corolla

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

Extremely reliable and great on gas. Yeah, the looks aren't all that great but looks won't keep you on the road. I highly recommend for your first car. I learned how to drive in this car so needless to say it's been through it but 4 years later it's never let me down. Radio is definitely old school with the cassette tape player but you can tune in on your basic radio channels or simply buy a cassette with an audio attachment to play from your phone. With a little time and money you can make this car into anything you desire.

It drives smooth and amazing.

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

My Toyota Corolla has been an amazing car! It's been in our family since it came off the lot. Still runs amazing and strong. She has 195,000 miles on it, but we've maintained it very well and she has never broke down. The seats are very comfortable. No blind spots. I'm also in Missoula Montana so there's snow here 9 months out of the year which you almost need 4 wheel drive for, but my corolla gets around great for only being a front wheel drive car.

2001 Toyota Corolla, NOT worth the problems

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

As far as comfort goes it is a great little car. However, I do not like that the windows aren't automatic. Also, there is no CD player. I have had so many problems with this car. It is not reliable at all. There is a new problem every month. Recently it has been pulling to the right really hard. I just had to get new brakes put on it and then the brake light came on the very next day. Also, the brake line is leaking.

Toyota Corolla 2001, simple yet graceful

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

The car is really smooth even though it doesn't look that impressive from the outside. Appearances can be deceiving and so is the case for this car. It has good mileage. I have been driving it for over 6 years and I haven't had any trouble with it yet. It is comfortable inside. It has foldable seats and good air conditioning system. Not too fancy electronics but I can play music from my phone or listen to the radio.

Big Wheels keep on turning.

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

My car is old, however, it's reliable. I've had a few problems in the past like the black box in the glove compartment had to be replaced, the shift would not move, had to purchase a new part for that, Of course new battery, s from time to time. Paint peeled off the top of my car, the inside strips around the inside of the car due to the hot sun. Great Performance. I would purchase another Toyota Corolla.

Been through the thick and thin: growing up with the children.

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

My car was bought by my parents, but given to me after my sixteenth birthday. Purchased in 2001, the brakes have worn down and the maintenance light is always on. We have gotten the brakes replaced a few times, but they are not like they were when we first bought them. The car is running decently and isn't broken down but it could be a lot better.

That its so good on gas I can go a long time without having to go

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

I love my car it's great on gas and it's not a lot of work to do or cost a lot of money to fix. Its small because my family is over 6 foot. But it's what is needed right now.it's has a sunroof and and it has a CD and rm and am radio. And ride real good and I live far from family but I get there safe and sound. With no problems

Toyota Corollas are dependable cars

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

Toyota Corolla is a really dependable and durable car. Bought it used and have put a lot of miles on it with very little problems. It is a great car for a first car or for college kids. It gets good gas mileage as well. The size of the car is beneficial for parking and it is easy to see out of all the windows.

been driving for over 19 years and has needed some repairs but nothing too major

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

The handles on most of the doors inside and out are broken, the inside cloth of the roof is falling and ripped, it is in need of repairs for the radiator and catalytic converters, is a very reliable car has over 200,000 miles, relatively comfortable but seats are made of a weird material.

- Kali H

Its drivable and it gets me to places I need to go.

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

Getting old and right tail light is smashed so the bulb, wires, some of the number is pretty much torn off. It is getting old to the point where it will not be drivable. I do not like how low it is. And it's almost to its mileage breaking point. Windows are little too clear too.

- Morgan H

It lasted forever and is still running today

2001 Toyota Corolla CE

Has bad shocks, engine issues, body issues, the hood is stuck, is reliable, but not a comfortable drive, however I've had my car for 18 years and it's been up and down and far and wide which is a testament to how well this car is made and produced by the Toyota company
