2001 Toyota Corolla 2.0D Limited 2.0 diesel from Pakistan


Great Car, Very reliable, Great Resale Value


Nothing went wrong With the Car.

General Comments:

The car is Very Reliable and well Built.

The mileage is great at within city 14.7Km/ltr Diesel.

The car is a bit high as compared to Honda civic, but that's what gives it good road clearance and reliability.

Driving Comfort as compared to Honda civic is Less, but then again Hard suspension of corolla is well suited for Pakistani Roads.

Very Nice Pick up for a Diesel Car.

Is this car made (or assembled) in Pakistan? How's the build quality?

2001 Toyota Corolla CE from North America


Good pickup, good mileage, roomy, and fun to drive.


Car needs 1 quart of oil every 200-300 miles. I have tried synthetic, and several mechanics. No leak could be found, no engine problems. Dealer would not comment on problem except saying it was not uncommon. My sister in law has a 2000 with the same issue. Usually noticed when driving long distances in warmer weather.

Seat belts don't re-track properly.

Check engine light comes on frequently. If you don't keep gas cap VERY tight engine light comes on and car stalls, until taken to dealer!

Emergency brake light comes on when I go over any bump. Taken to dealer about emergency brake light coming on, covered under warranty at 4,000 miles. They fixed it for free, but it happened again about 500 miles later.

Seats and carpet very worn in 4 years. I have owned 5 cars, and am tough on interiors. However this tan interior stained and shows wear much more than any I've has previous.

Paint had bubbles on panels under front doors 1 week after owning it. Dealer did not cover, and said it was due to road tar. Don't know what caused it, but cleaning it doesn't help. However it is not very noticeable.

General Comments:

Has few quirks, but LOVE this car!

Most reliable car I have ever owned, no major problems.

Just replaced brake pads for first time at 60,000.

Replaced tires at 40,000 miles, and what a difference it made. MUCH better handling with some better than stock tires, and I bought budget tires at my local mechanic.

Car has much more pick up than others in it's class and price range. I've driven this car for over 4 years, and love it more now than when I bought it. After about 10,000 miles the acceleration actually improved.

The gas mileage is not what they said it would be, real life I get about 28-32 mpg. It was rated by dealer at 34-38 mpg. But still better than any other sedan I've owned.

Quite roomy for a compact sedan. Seats comfortable for less than 2 hour drives.

I would buy another Toyota Corolla if looking for a compact sedan.

I've owned 2 Corollas a 1990 and 2001 and the oil usage you're experiencing is not normal for a Corolla. I've never used a quart of oil in 3,000 or 4,000 miles. When I have my emission system checked, for the state government requirements, the sensing machine can barely detect any hydrocarbons in the exhaust and that's often after many years of usage and wear.

I have heard the head gaskets on these engines are too thin... that may be why your leaking oil...?

2001 Toyota Corolla Ultima 1.8 Litre VVT-i from Australia and New Zealand


The nicest luxury small car in its class


Nothing has ever gone wrong with the vehicle.

General Comments:

A wonderful car to own, excellent fuel economy and very reliable.

Has a bit of a Lexus feel with the woodgrain inserts, beautiful and luxurious ivory cloth trim, and Optitron instruments.

A shame Toyota didn't include cruise control on this top of the range Corolla.

This is the hatch model of the Ultima, which Toyota no longer sells in Australia. The Ultima now only comes in boring pensioner sedan guise.
