3 speed or 4 speed? Corolla - how can I tell?
 
We are looking for a 4 speed 1998-2003 Corolla, but I'm not sure how to tell
the difference in the two. Someone said that if it had an extra button on the
gear stick, it had overdrive and that made it a 4 speed.

How can I tell?

Thanks.

Extra button (by your thumb) on the gear lever.

Turns the overdrive (4th gear) on and off.

I just read something earlier that said the VE was 3 speed and CE and LE were
4 speed. Does that seem right?

So, does extra thumb button mean it is a 3 speed? The 3 speed gets poorer gas
mileage.

Thanks.

Yes, *sounds* right.

Just get a manual ("stick-shift") and you'll get five gears, which be
even better mileage, as well as actual power and speed.

I would get a manual, but I have hip and back problems and shifting gears
would put too much stress on them.
