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

Review

Loved my '87 Corolla...had it 11 years (bought it used). 30 mpg when I retired it. 2000: great: 38 mpg when I traded it for this piece of crap: tranny replaced at 96K, just told I need a new radiator. Brake pedal winks when the AC is on (dealer told me it was normal). I only get 32 mpg at best (stick shift!, not my driving. I got 41 mpg on a rented Cobalt). Radio jumps stations (already replaced when the CD player got jammed). Car is too big: too many blind spots compared to older models. Back head rests block rear view (as did the 2000), removed and stored for trade-in. Even the paint on the body below the door isn't smooth. Seats don't go down fully (overstuffed).

Favorite Features

Sun roof. Nothing else. I hate this car!

Suggested Improvements

Replace back head rests w/ a Honda/Volvo style...w/a hole int he middle so the driver can see through them. Improve your quality: TQM is not RFT! Reduce the stuffing the rear seats so they lay down flatter.
