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.
Very nice appearance, I love the
MoonShadow Gray Metallic Exterior with
a lighter Gray Interior. The ride is
very smooth and quiet. Acceleration is
very good and makes for easy passing
and entry into traffic situations.
Braking is easy and smooth. Controls
are all in easy reach and easy to
operate. Seat belts are of adequate
length even for the larger occupants.
I am very fond of the remote windows,
doors, mirrors and remote keyless
entry. The style of the car is a bit to
the sporty side, yet appeals to the
THIS IS MY FIFTH TOYOTA. I'VE
PREVIOUSLY OWNED 2 COROLLAS AND 2
CAMRYS. I LOVE THE STYLE OF THIS
COROLLA. TO ME IT FEELS LIKE A BABY
CAMRY. IT IS JUST WHAT I NEED TO GET TO
WORK AND GET AROUND TOWN. I REMEMBER
WHEN I FIRST GOT THIS CORILLA. IT WAS
THE SECOND WEEK OF APRIL, 2002. BRAND
NEW, NOT TOO MANY LIKE IT IN THE ROAD.
HAD ONLY BEEN OUT 2 OR 3 WEEKS. REALLY
TURNED A LOT OF HEADS. THE BEST YET.
EASY ACCESS TO EVERY FEATURE. ENGINE
COMPARTMENT IS A BREEZE. NOTHING
COMPLICATED. OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE GAUGE
IS NICE TO HAVE. I HAVE THE BASE MODEL
WITH ROLL-UP WINDOWS. NO WINDOW
MALFUNCTIONS WILL EVERY HAPPEN. NICE
BODY LINES. FEELS GOOD WHEN WIPING CAR
MORE SPACE BETWEEN THE BRAKE PEDAL AND
THE GAS PEDAL. MAYBE ANOTHER NOTCH IN
THE DRIVERS SEAT ADJUSTMENT FOR TALLER
DRIVERS. OTHER THAN THAT, THE BEST BUY
FOR THE MONEY. PERIOD.
I love my Corolla! As a college
student, I needed something that is not
only reliable, but that offers enough
room to bring home all my laundry! ;)
This car is GREAT on gas and it's very
sporty! None of my friends can believe
it's a Corolla! I also get compliments
from everyone that rides with me on how
smooth the ride is! It always puts my
passangers to sleep! I highly recommend
Underbody spoilers and headlamps make
it look sporty! Plus the 'chrome'
accents on the interior give it a
sporty feel as well!
I'd like to see the 'chrome' racing
pedals in it, like Toyota has in the
Solara! Also, the center console where
the stereo is could have a little more
to it! (it's kind of plain)
