Buy this car..
By jbintegra on
2002 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
My LIFE is driving. I annually put
around 40,000 miles on vehicles, and as
an avid older Porsche collector, I
demand satisfaction. My Integra
with 376,850 actual miles (original
VERY tired engine) finally croaked.
Found the "S", liked it, and got the 0%
financing. I am in LOVE with this car-
the "squishy/squealy tires" and soft
suspension are exactly what I need for
my job. Indeed, I am 5'10 and 135 lbs,
so the seat-comfort complaints might be
valid for larger drivers. What I love
is how quiet it is, the impeccable
build quality, the ample power and the
incredible gas mileage (39.6 avg). Turn
the key and drive it for 10 years. I
The hiway ride is the best feature.
The engine is second. The "S"
interior, factory alloy wheels and
foglamps make a very bland car
acceptable (I am 29. Cruise is very
responsive, hibeams the best I have
ever seen in any car (I suggest
aftermarket H4 WhiteLight bulbs).
The rear seat is awful-no leg/foot
room. No glove compartment lock or
light. The side trim was placed badly
(it dings EASY). Buy the Xenon HID
bulbs, a B&M shortshifter, a small
factory spoiler, and theres a winner.
Mines got 39k already. DEPENDABILITY
