Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2002 Toyota Corolla OVERVIEW
Toyota's Corolla is one of the most trusted vehicles sold in the U.S. Many choose it as their first new car, and with good reason. For more than three decades, the Corolla has earned a reputation for delivering reliable, durable, and comfortable transportation. Every Toyota vehicle sold, from the entry-level Echo to the premium Lexus sedans and SUVs, is built to an extremely high standard. If you pay a little extra for a Toyota, that's what you're getting in return. Changes for 2001 include a realigned product mix. The base Corolla is now the CE, followed by a new S version and topping out with the LE model. The S version comes with standard fog lamps, color-keyed body side moldings, door handles, and front grill, a leather-like wrap for the steering wheel, and a few other touches that imply sportiness. It receives no mechanical or performance-minded upgrades.
