My friend at work has a wonderful Toyota Corolla luxury edition from the year 1998. It is a very nice blue color with automatic transmission. She swears by Corolla's and when I told her I write reviews on this site she said go right ahead and write up mine.
First of all I have rode in her car on occasion like other staff have when they have needed to have work done on their own vehicles she has been very generous with offering rides to all in need. This gave me a chance to evaluate another model year of the Corolla. It is a very comfortable car and the transmission shifted very smoothly. I enjoyed driving it. Very responsive.
So far she has had only normal repairs that one would expect at this point. She has well over 100, 000 miles at this point and the vehicle just keeps on keepin on! It really doesn't seem to matter what year these Corolla"s are they just do not die.
We have another co-worker who bought one as well but an older model for a few hundred dollars you just cannot kill that one either. These have to be the most reliable cars in existence. Obviously Toyota has built up a legendary dynasty when it comes to these. The luxury edition in this case was very nicely equipped and gave a feeling that you should have paid alot more that what she did.
