Fantastic and Indestructable

2004 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I ordered my LE 5-spd manual (loaded with goodies like leather, roof, etc.), and it has provided 58,000 trouble-free miles. This is the perfect car for someone who needs an A+ commuter car with no trouble. The interior materials are first-rate, and you would be hard pressed to find anything more comfortable or better-appointed at this price. The only issue I had a center console door that failed to close, which was replaced under warranty with no hassle. Fair warning, from a car enthusiast standpoint (like myself), this car is about as exciting to drive as a washing machine. You will want to have a "fun car" in addition to this one. Also, the steering feel is scarily horrific.

Favorite Features

The interior is top-rate. There is simply not a more comfortable or luxurious interior at this price point. Snag an LE with leather if you can. They are very rare, but provide an unprecedented level of comfort and style. The fuel economy on this car is good as well (consistently 32-35 mpg).

Suggested Improvements

Steering (feel, turning radius, etc.) is absolutely awful. You will feel at times like you are driving a 1992 Lincoln Town Car when you make turns. This is not the sporty-car in any way, shape, or form. If you can get past that, this is a flawless vehicle.
