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

Review

Owned domestic cars for 20 yrs. Bought this to test the Import waters. I am disappointed. The driver side floor mat is worn, and Toyota will not replace under warranty (Dealer replaced it as a courtesy). The lug bolts break off at the recommended torque, again not replaced under warranty (Dealer again replaced as a courtesy). The carpet in the rear seats is worn from the floor mats rubbing against it. Highway gas mileage is supposed to be 40, I get somewhere between 33 and 38. The paint on the hood is chipped from bugs hitting it. Lousy handling. If this is what you get with an import, forget it. I have problems with domestic cars, but at least I am not paying a premium for the vehicle.

Favorite Features

I can honestly say that I bought the car with high hopes. I am disappointed.

Suggested Improvements

The import automakers have a great marketing campaign going. How else can you sell such a vehicle at such a premium and still convince buyers that the car is a great vehicle?
