2006 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I recently got this car from my parents as a going to school car and for my personal use. For the money, this car is great! This car is pretty much the best thing you can get for your money. This car is loaded with features for the price you pay. The few flaws it has are absolutely obsolete. It's extremely comfortable and supportive and the performance is surprisingly good for a 4 cylinder. The throttle is very responsive and the ride is very comfortable and relatively sporty.


Best Features

Gas mileage, interior design, performance, comfort.


Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel, have rear seats fold down further, be able to actually turn off your lights at night.

2006 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have owned my Corolla S 5 speed for one week and have put 1000 miles on it. This car is great! Great fuel economy, good performance and very comfortable to drive. The car has an awesome suspension and drives great on the highway as well as on the back roads. I am 26 and used to think that Toyotas were boring... now I think the value and reliability of the Corolla are paramount.


Best Features

Manual transmission brings this car to life! Real aluminum wheels, not just hubcaps. Keyless entry.


Worst Features

ABS and side airbags should be standard. Keyless entry should beep the horn when doors are locked, and should have a feature to 'pop' the trunk. Factory sound system (non-JBL) could be better... but thats what aftermarket speakers are for.

2006 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We purchased the S model in dark gray with a moonroof and spoiler and it is simply gorgeous. On top of it being a beautiful car, it is an amazing ride.


Best Features

Moonroof, awesome steering wheel, alloy rims, great performance, style.


Worst Features

A/C doesn't work too well in city traffic - seems like you have to be moving rather quick to get it any cooler. Nothing else, though!

2006 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

The driverís seat is extremely uncomfortable and cannot be adjusted for comfort. It has a lump in it that shoves up on the back of the hips, forcing the driver to lean forward and shoving up on the spine. The seat sits far too high Ė what are they doing, trying to imitate a SUV? The pump on the side of the seat is a joke, more of a gimmick toy than an adjusting tool. The adjustable steering wheel is dangerous as you must remember to shove the locking lever back. I have never had a car that rides so extremely poorly and I have driven 50 years. On smooth pavement it is fine, but you feel every bump in the road otherwise. It rides more like my Wrangler than the car I wanted.


Best Features

It has surprisingly good response from such a small engine. Of course I have not had more than two people in it and havenít driven into the mountains as yet.


Worst Features

1: Seats that are comfortable. Set them lower; get rid of the lump pushing into the driver; change the adjusting mechanism so that it works, not just moves the seat. 2. Put an auto locking mechanism on the tilt steering wheel. I am surprised the safety people allow this setup.

2006 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is an excellent little car. It's solid, built very well, looks good, gets great gas mileage and has a lot of space for a compact car. I would highly recommend this car to anyone who is not over 6' or 225 pounds. It is a compact car, and I believe large people would find it too small. Finding the right driving position will take some time, but once you find it you will feel comfortable. I changed my stock 185 Goodyear Integrity tires to 195 Yokahama Avid TRZ. This made a big difference in the ride and comfort.


Best Features

5-speed transmission, large trunk, comfortable seats, cactus color, highway ride


Worst Features

Shorten seat belt beep, give driver ability to turn off daytime driving lights, design console arm rest slightly taller, add telescopic steering wheel as option.
