Early 2000's Corolla. Simply the best.

Problems: at this point, I do have a bit of squeaking in the driver’s side, but I know it is merely the springs itself. I have had to replace the back and front struts, and currently I have a strange creaking noise when making a right hand turn. I am unsure as to what the problem is at current, but I am keeping an eye on my fluid levels. So far, I haven't had too many issues with it aside from these. Regular maintenance and break changes when needed. Performance: my car still accelerates like it is supposed do, with very little engine noise. The gas consumption is perfect. Reliability: my car has been very reliable so far. It is older now, but with this particular brand and year of vehicle, if you take good care of it, it’ll more than make up for maintenance costs. What’s different with mine as well is the fact that I do not do much in terms of long distance driving. The odometer can in a ways be a true indicator of age. Before I got my license, the car had been sitting for a good four years at least in one spot. All that failed were the tires and battery. Comfort: it has bucket seats, which could cause a problem when you have bad knees. There is enough space for four people to ride in comfort. Features: the version I drive is a ce, so there are manual side mirrors and manual wind down windows. The radio is still the original with FM/am and a tape deck. The speakers still work, which is amazing after 16 years. There is air conditioning and heat. A key opens the passenger and driver’s side door. It also works for the trunk. This car is an older vehicle and does not use a key fob. Turning the steering wheel to the right will lock it once in a parked position.

Toyota Corolla Used Review.

This car is very reliable and easy and affordable to repair. I am very happy having purchased it for a very reasonable price and only having to put minimal money into fixing it. Also the gas mileage is outstanding. It gets around twenty five to thirty miles per gallon and maybe even a bit more on the highway. If somebody were considering buying a similar model to this I would completely recommend it. Rather than spend a lot of money on something of questionable reliability you try it out. I have never had to do a major repair on this car, only minor things such as starter or ignition and batteries periodically. Some of the repairs were so easy that I was actually able to do them myself having little to no mechanical abilities. For being such a small car I have never had a problem transporting my whole family or whatever items I need to get to my house. In closing I am thoroughly impressed with the longevity and quality that went into the engineering on this car. After twenty plus years on the road it shows no signs of stopping anytime soon. The 2002 Toyota corolla is definitely a solid choice for anybody looking to get a reliable car that will keep them happy for years to come.

Good small, practical, reliable car.

Bought it used with about 80,000 miles on it and have had for about 5 years now. It has been safe and reliable. It has never broken down on me other than for something common like a flat tire after I ran over a sharp object. Some parts have needed replaced due to age and normal expected wear (brake lines, tires, bearings, battery, etc.). Gets good gas mileage. Small size is helpful for parking and maneuvering. Has some rust on the sides due to being parked outside at all times. Needs oil somewhat frequently compared to other cars- seems to go through oil quickly. The front seats are reasonably comfortable, but the back can feel cramped. I like that the lights come on automatically when it is dark outside, and that the engine is fairly quiet when running. It is not a glamorous car, but it is practical and reliable and has served me well. It has all of the basics and has not given me any unwelcome surprises. I would recommend it.
