I'm a Honda man but the new 03' Corolla swayed me. I went to a dealership that sells Honda and Toyota cars and compared them side by side and opted for the Corolla. I could have the 02'Civic LX for $13,431 or the 03' Corolla LE with some useless stuff they force you to buy, for $14,309, both prices delivered. The Corolla is bigger, has tighter build, keyless entry, CD and now looks better for less than a $900 dollar difference. The Civic is great but be sure to look at the Corolla.
