I set out looking for a new car that
had four doors, looked sporty, was
great to drive, was going to be
reliable, economical, and affordable.
After driving a couple of the other
contenders I finally arrived to test
drive the Corrolla S. What a drive!
Toyota made a really great car here. I
feel like I'm driving a car that I
should have paid a lot more for.
Exterior and interior design and
quality. Suprisingly comfortable and
roomy inside. Bottom line - hands down
the best value in this class.
The S model should be able to option
for more beef under the hood.
I bought my corolla in Nov 2002 and
after 4 months i have noticed about a
hundred paint chips all over my hood
and along the sides of my car... This
is my second toyota to date and i have
never in my life seen such a disaster..

This was a great buy. I am in love with

I bought a 2003 Corolla for the same
reasons most folks do -- basic,
reliable transportation at a budget
price. When the car finally arrived
(about 5 weeks after date of purchase),
I was very pleasantly surprised to
discover that I loved the way it looked
and drove (hadn't bothered to test-
drive the car because I owned a Corolla
previously). With 130 HP, 125 ft/lb
torque, and a manual transmission, the
engine is a LOT peppier than my old
Corolla (100 HP, AT). The surprisingly
roomy interior, super-comfy seats, CD
player, and sunroof all make for a very
pleasant driving experience. I
couldn't be happier with this car!
Surprisingly roomy interior, lotsa
trunk space, peppy little engine, GREAT
