I bought a 1997 Toyota Corolla CE brand new back in 1997. At the time, I was doing a lot of travel for my job, and needed something dependable and good on gas. Toyota's reputation for quality brought me to the dealership, and I was soon sold ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliability, durability, reputation
Cons: Non-glitzy

The Corolla I now have is my third Corolla, and every one has been reliable -- I've never had any problems. I also pay a very low monthly lease payment, which is a high priority for me because I don't need it as an accessory -- I'm not in it for the ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: cheap to maintain, minimal blindspots, good field of vision for driver
Cons: minor electrical problems, somewhat noisy, not very powerful engine

I'll be the first to agree that the Corolla is not the fastest thing on four wheels but for basic get-you-there-and-back transportation it's the greatest! As a driving instructor I have recommended them to students as a first car. Try as they may the ... read more

Pros: price, dependability, gas mileage, look & style
Cons: leg room is slight, no sunroof on mine and option is high for that

I got my Corolla in July of '97 because my Buick century finally died. I was so tremendously heartbroken, that I didn' t even want to look at a car, at last I did, and boy am I glad! I really don't know where to start! I had a 2 year lease--they gave ... read more

On May 4, 1999, my wife was involved in an accident with our 1997 Corolla CE. This vehicle performed tremendously, folding just as its manufacturer intended. Although the front end collision totaled the car, I was more than impressed with the safety ... read more

Everyone is writing such wonderful reviews for this card and I have ad nothing but heartache over it. It is like a bad omen. It stays in the shop, and just when we think it is fixed, it breaks down. The main problem is not starting. WE go out, ready ... read more
