2005 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I just bought this car and, so far, it's the best Corolla I've had in 7 years. (my last 2 were LE's) So far, this car has exceeded my expectations.


Best Features

Exterior body style; interior design, especially front dash displays; comfortable, adjustable seats with plenty of leg room


Worst Features

Interior seating is a dark, crushed velvety type of material that seems to capture every speck of dust or hair it comes in contact with

2005 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Have had the car for 5 weeks now. No problems, appox. 26.5 mpg city and close to 30 - with more highway use. I would highly recommend the Corolla S to anyone wanting "sporty value". I added tinted windows and a chrome exhaust tip which make the car look even better!


Best Features

Comfortable seats, leather steering wheel and shift knob.


Worst Features

None

2005 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I am very happy with this car! Fun to drive.Gorgeous interior. Plenty of pep. A fun little commuter car. 26 inch fully assembled mtn bike fits in back. My gas mileage is 30 around town, 37 on hwy. A\C nice and cold. Nice control layout and function. Car is very well sealed from outside air. Moderate road noise, not super quiet (recommend loud stereo). Some Corolla reviews I have read talk about the tires skidding on turns and other nonsense. This car handles beautifully. It is tight and responsive, but it's not a dang race car. If you want to play Fast and Furious, buy something else.


Best Features

Where to start... everything on this car is so smart and well thought-out. The interior is just so cool and roomy, seats are very comfortable, everyone comments on the seat comfort.


Worst Features

My only complaint, not a big deal, I wish the steering wheel telescoped toward the driver a bit. I like to put my seat way back and it feels like I have to reach way forward to the wheel. Road noise level is a bit high but not ridiculous.

2005 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my third Toyota, 2 Camrys before and I have loved them all. My new Toyota Corolla is a dream to drive. I spend approx 2 hrs a day in traffic and with the great sound system and comfort it makes the trip so much easier. When my husband is ready to buy a new car again he is convinced it will be a Toyota.


Best Features

Sound system is great, seats are comfortable, displays are easy to see and have easy access


Worst Features

Have a cargo net included for trunk space. The only thng I wish was different, I am short and with the seat up for me to drive, the console is too far back for me to rest my arm in it.

2005 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I just bought the 2005 Toyota Corolla CE manual. It's my very first car ever and I went with Toyota because of their reliability and the low cost of the car. Couln't be happier. Amazing gas mileage. I've put 600 miles on the car and I've only had to fill it up once so far.


Best Features

The fact that the CD player is standard. I also like the fact you can unlock all the doors from the driver side door lock. Very comfortable drive.


Worst Features

Power windows and door locks should be standard. Awkward seating controls. Pumping the seat up or down should be electric not manual. But other than that the car runs great and is a bargain
