Powerful little car
By AOW on
2005 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
It's my mother's car but I drive it every now and then to make sure all is fine. It has been very dependable, never in the shop for anything except brake pads, battery and regular maintenance. Did have problem with weather strip around the front doors. The dealer replaced them under warranty and the whistling noise went away. Every time I drive it, I'm amazed by the power it gives. Merging onto freeway is a breeze and the pick up from stop is also great for 1.8L. This is the 3rd Corolla in the family. Can't beat the overall value.
Power, gas mileage, size and function. Car is always on alignment, easy maintenance.
Driving position is not always comfortable for short people, no telescope steering wheel. Rear view mirror got loose after sun visor hitting it constantly. Car feels light at 70+ mph.
