I test drove both the Scion and the
Corolla and went with the Corolla
because it had more pickup and
comfortable handling. I love the fact
that the car is taller than most sedan
models because I feel almost as tall
as the larger SUVs on the road.
I like the placement of all of the
instruments and the fact that
everything is uncluttered.
Owned a 97 Geo Prizm before and didn't
hesitate to buy a 04 Corolla.
Unfortunately I did not test drive it
close enough. Major problem with
steering wheel too close to dash, and
an ackward seat/floor. This has
resulted in personal left foot problems
(I've called "Toyota foot"). Also
problem with rotten egg smell while
ideling at a stop. Need to inform
passengers that it's the car "not me".
Engine has more pep.
-Move STEERING WHEEL out.
-Correct ackward seat/floor layout that
puts significant pressure on heel of
- Fix the rotten egg smell.
I have had this car for 3 weeks now. It
is such a comfortable car to drive. I
am 6'tall and it is very roomy inside
the car for me. The ride is quiet on
the road and it has a smooth ride. This
is my first Toyota and so far I am very
happy.The wood grain interior looks so
much like the Camry. My sister has a
Camry and they say the car looks so
much like the Camry in Looks.The dealer
was GREAT!!! they got me the color I
The Ride and Comfort. The gas Mileage.I
do like the Radio and CD Player. The
bass is better than I had in my Nissan.
