Good small, practical, reliable car.

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

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.

corrolla 2002 with 290000 kilo

2002 Toyota Corolla ce

this car was purchased new and never failed to the task. I did my mechanic myself and parts are dirt cheap. This models had issue with oil consumption but for everybody who ones one try making a few engine flush on you next few oil change. my 19 years old car is all banged-up as it was used by my son and 2 daughter for student car... the thing refused to die even after my daughter ran it dry 3 time without oil... I will never find another car like this one. not a sparkling sporty by any means but the most reliable tank you will ever get.

Small Yet Reliable Toyota Corolla

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

The Toyota Corolla is a reliable car, but small. It seats five, two in the front and three in the back. The seats are comfortable, although it is low to the ground, you can feel every bump. Nice storage for trunk despite the small car. No issues with overheating, but I did have a co2 sensor go, with some issues with the light turning off after being fixed. Some might argue it was actually never 'fixed.' Overall, reliable.

though old and though slow the 2002 Corolla has proven positively positive

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

the car is old so it has normal old car issues like the suspension is rough and might need some work but otherwise the car has been extremely reliable to me. It always starts and gets me from point a to. The biggest issues I have with the car is that it takes a little while to start up and the rough suspension. It isn't the most comfortable car it's completely basic and just for basic transportation uses

Sturdy, reliable, enjoyable car

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

No real problems throughout the time I have had this car, very reliable and very sturdy. Engine always starts very well and even in really cold weather I have had no issues with the Toyota. I enjoy the cruise control and during cold weather I am glad I can turn the car on from inside the house with the key being able to turn the car on from outside the vehicle

It is always worth getting a Toyota.

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

What I enjoy about these cars are the gas mileage. Toyotas have great maintenance. They are also low maintenance and a good first car for new individual. The only thing I do not like is that between the different service stations sometimes they maintenance personnel do not take the time to see if that service has already been performed.


Little red machine that keeps on going!

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

I like my car it's very reliable and gets good gas mileage and I have never had any major problems. Only downside is rust problem on front quarter panels. It also drives smoothly on mostly original parts. I have taken it on very long trips 4000 miles without any problems. Great engine and transmission even though it is an automatic.

Toyota corolla, America's most reliable car.

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

This is one of the most durable cars I have ever owned/known. It is over 17 years old and still runs perfectly fine. I currently use it as a my main commuter and have no reason to believe that it will break down on me anytime soon. It is green. Never had any problems. I would consider it very reliable and highly recommend it.

Running 3 years without any repairs

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

I haven't had any problems out of it I be not done any work on it since I got it 3 years ago. Only bad thing is there bad about door handles breaking off. Other than that they are real good dependable vehicles. Motors in them run forever was always told the car will call apart before the motor stops

Toyota Corolla 2002 - Grey

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

My Corolla, despite being old, is the best car a young guy could ask for. It's reliable, the AC works, and it drives smooth. I have cloth seats that are comfortable, and the speakers actually sound pretty good. The car has held up through hitting deer and other cars very well and I love it.

- Daniel L

Great car, few issues not expensive. And spark plugs for tune up is right on top.

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

Car is great with gas but I keep having things go wrong one thing after the other. Known for gaskets to go out and ignition coils otherwise is an amazing car. Fits 5 people comfortably and it rides very smoothly and quietly as well. Style of car is nice nothing embarrassing about this one.

- Jessica B

The corolla gets great gas mileage and is low maintenance.

2002 Toyota Corolla CE

I haven't had any mechanical issues with my Toyota corolla. I get good gas mileage and I rotate the tires and change the oil regularly. I recently replaced two original parts that were 16 years old. I cannot say enough good things about driving the Toyota corolla.

- John D
