1997 Toyota Corolla CE 1.6 liter 4 cylinder
Excellent car, excellent value
My only real complaint about this car in 13 years was lack of acceleration power: Not much pick up and go, it was pretty gutless even new, forget passing on a hill.
At about 10 years old, the roof headliner fell down like the adhesive holding it to the roof failed; it was held up only along the edges and under the dome light. I never bothered to get it fixed.
I hated the dealership (they're since out of business), but I would buy another Toyota from a different dealership.
The car, as manufactured, has cost almost nothing to maintain or operate. Most parts lasted well beyond expected lifetime. Never a major or costly problem.
I have loved this car! My car was totaled in an accident or I would still be driving it. I was planning to drive it beyond 200K miles! I am seriously heartbroken to have lost this car.
This car was very comfortable as a driver and passenger.
Easy to drive, easy to park, easy to parallel park, could U-turn in small spaces.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
