Great car, fantastic space, drives smoothly, durable.

The Toyota Corolla has lasted several years already from buying it used. It is an exceptionally good car, with not even 200,000 miles on it yet, even though it is traveled all the way from the east to west coast several trips, in a single year, and down south and southwest, where it currently resides in the west. It does great in the mountains and gets me just about anywhere i'd like to go. It drives smoothly and is great with tight turns and crazy road conditions. Many times it has made it through serious snow storms, and is just fantastic at getting around the difficult situations.

One owner car. Had it is first tune up at 110, 000 miles.

Great small car. Gas mileage over 33 mpg in town, around 45 on the freeway. Would not recommend this car for anyone over 6’ tall as front and back seats will not be very comfortable. I have the “s” version with 15” wheels, cruise control, air conditioning, rear window defogger, intermittent wipers, color matched door protectors, remote lock/unlock and matching car mats. Has required normal maintenance without major problems. Had it is first tune-up at 110, 000 miles. Now has 126, 000 and is still going strong. I highly recommend it and would definitely buy another Corolla. ,

Corolla - the best car I have ever owned!

My car is super-reliable. I have not had any mechanical issues with it at all, and it has over 130, 000 miles. Other than general car maintenance, the most I have had to do is get new tires every few years. My Corolla gets excellent gas mileage, over 33 mpg with city driving. The heater/air conditioner heats up/cools off the car quickly. Both the front and back seats are comfortable. Although the leg room in the back seat is a little tight for the tall men in my family. My car came with a 5-disc CD player, which a absolutely love, but I do not think they make any more.
