2004 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I had a Camry that I loved. It averaged 30 mpg. It was a 1993 so time for a new car. I decided to go down to a Corolla since I didn't need such a large car. But I am so disappointed. I am averaging 17 miles a gallon city driving. I took it back to the dealership and they claim that is the average for this car. Of course when I bought it the sticker said 29 mpg for city driving. I would never have purchased it if it said 17 mpg. I did buy it used. It was 3 years old with low mileage. Also was certified. But have already had dead battery twice, which they did replace.
I like the looks of the car. It has good pick up.
The headrests cause blind spots. The exterior should be stronger as I have several dings from others opening their doors into mine.
