Toyota Corolla Used Review.

2002 Toyota Corolla

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.

This car will not stop working.

2002 Toyota Corolla

The only problem I have experienced with the Corolla is the catalytic converter. It went bad at about 220,000 miles. I replaced it and it went bad again at about 260,000 miles. I was told because it is an older car it ruins them. The car overall though is amazing. Great gas mileage, trustworthy, and comfortable. I am tall and it has plenty of room. It drives great and I have had no issues besides the catalytic converter. It does have a small amount of rust on passenger side wheel well and hubcaps scams off but the engine and bones of this car is a tank. I have 290,000 miles on it and will probably get 100,000 more. Highly recommend this vehicle!

Quirky solo commuter's car

2002 Toyota Corolla

Since the car had only one previous owner, it was in pretty good shape when I bought it. As seems to be typical with this model, the headliner adhesive didn't last and it is held up by dozens of flathead thumbtacks. Both the sun visors snapped off recently, so I carry a couple of cardboard box flaps to jam up under the window as a substitute. It rides well enough, but I can't imagine having more than one passenger-the rear seating is really cramped.

Problems and concerns of the car I had for about 5 years.

2002 Toyota Corolla

Appearance wise, it was clean on the inside and clean on the outside as well. It was a stick shift. At first it ran fine, then the longer I had the car it caused engine problems. Had to get a new clutch cost me a lot of money! Engine wouldn't start and it also costed a lot to fix. Constant oil change than usual. Tires were so old had to replace them multiple times.

A detail about my car is the interior. It's leather, and has wood details.

2002 Toyota Corolla

The only problem that I have with my car is that the same coil pack keeps going out. Other than that, the car is perfect. It is super reliable, and it gets me where I need to go. It is also cheap to keep up with the upkeep. I love the features. Even though it is an old car, I am still able to play my phone on the radio through the tape player.

Love my carolla. Very dependable car .

2002 Toyota Corolla

I really love my car. I've found it to be very dependable and minimal upkeep costs. While all cars have problems I have to say the things that break are usually just a matter of fixing and don't usually affect my ability to drive my car. I have had some larger problems because it is an older car but have gotten someone to fix it.

Great everyday family car!

2002 Toyota Corolla

Excellent car! Have had no major issues thus far. Is comfortable to drive great on gas. Wish it had cruise control, though. For being a small car there's quite enough trunk space to load larger items when you fold the seats down. Great car for a woman. My husband is tall and has a hard time getting in and out.

Toyota Corolla 2002 LE Gold

2002 Toyota Corolla

I like my car, it just too small for me but it great on gas and mileage. The car runs great, the air conditioner still works on it for it to be older. It is dependable. I have to replace the axles up under it that's probably the most common problem I've had with it.

Cheap and reliable all around.

2002 Toyota Corolla

It is a small nice and comfortable vehicle that gets good mileage and easy on the wallet when need to refill. Look at affordable and low maintenance cost year after year cheap on self fix and repairs with p l entry of aftermarket parts available. So get one already.
