2005 Toyota Corolla XRS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)

Review

Price can be too high for some but if you can afford this 4 door rocket, get it! Using the Celica's engine it is rev-happy and is extremely brisk on the street! Going up to the mountains from Denver it easily scooted up those 6% inclines with 3 people in it and A/C on! Not an easy feat for most econo- boxes!!! Comfort is great, noise a smidgen high but not terribly bad! I do, however, have one gripe...the tires...lil' too much flex on the sidewall when cornering, other than that the corolla loves to be tossed into corners! Even better ABS, all disc brakes, 6-speed, cruise, etc...and with Toyota reliablility!

Best Features

6-speed, suspension, 170-HP engine, exterior design (head turner for sure), safety, gauge cluster, front/rear discs, tire pressure monitor! Auto A/C shut-off when revs get above 5000, great feature when needing to pass or climb hills!

Worst Features

Make side airbags standard! possibly two additional interior colors, instead of fixed variable intermitent wipers, make them full variable like on the LE!
