Just bought my Corolla last week. Rides
like a charm- very comfortable and
plush; makes me feel like I'm driving a
Lexus(actually the same platform as the
Lexus IS300, only with a 4 cylinder
engine). Toyota has done a great job
with their restyling of this car.
Performance, feel and design are head
and shoulders above the similar Nissan
Sentra and Mazda Protege. Reasonably
priced and reliable as it gets, you
cannot go wrong with the Corolla.
Bought a 03 Corolla for my wife in
January. Love that car so much, I
bought one for me in March. Build
quality is excellent, it's quiet,
smooth, refined. The engine is peppy,
I'm getting 28MPG in the city and it's
not even broken in yet. Not enough can
be said about it's exterior styling...I
turn heads everywhere I go, people are
shocked to learn it's a base model
Toyota. The steering is precise, the
brakes are excellent, and there is a
ton of trunk space. I'm not that tall,
but there's plenty of leg room, both
front and back. The dash and controls
are well laid out, very logical.
Overall I am SUPER happy with these
Just about everything mechanical, and
really love the styling. Toyota's
reputation is a definate plus!
Ask someone who knows what music is
SUPPOSED to sound like BEFORE you toss
a stereo in and call it "deluxe".
I love my vehicle it is just excellent!
The seats are comfortable, its all just
so perfect. I used to always buy ford's
until my corolla, now i'll never want a
ford again. The only flaw that i have
found in this vehicle is its lack of
power compared to the weight of the
the braking, exterior styling,
comfortable seats, reliable
I just traded in my '97 Toyota Corolla
for an '03 Corolla S, and I am
completely amazed. It's very quiet at
highway speeds, well at every speed.
It's very refined, and the gas mileage
just makes me smile. The interior room
is very deceptive when looking at the
car from the outside, it's huge
inside. The stock audio system
(6spkAM/FM/CD) is okay. Overall this
is a lot of car for the money, and
with Toyota's reputation there was no
other choice for me.
Instrument cluster lights @ night (S
Model), temp display, plenty of
cubbies, 2 power outlets, smooth ride
and quietness, very good gas mileage
Matching interior lights (cluster and
HVAC controls), bigger wheels and
tires for the S model, ABS standard
