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

Review

I bought the car new in 2003 as a 2004 model. It ran great and had a great MPG in mid 30s w/ low maintenance until 60K, then everything - one by one broke down. The serpentine belt, left rear wheel, radiator and rear wheel bearing that required entire hub assembly to be replaced. The ran mostly highway in the NE. I wont be buying another Toyota for a while. It feels as it is only built to last 60K, then things break down one by one. With the Toyota recall all over the news, I am starting to wonder about the build quality. Oh, the paint chips at 30-40K miles. The noise is unacceptably high as compared to my new elantra.

Favorite Features

good mpg. low cost maintenance before 60K. as long as you don't need to replace broken down parts

Suggested Improvements

please improve your build quality. reduce wind noise. the new corolla since 09 is very cheap feeling. it will probably break down even sooner.
