2002 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


My LIFE is driving. I annually put
around 40,000 miles on vehicles, and as
an avid older Porsche collector, I
demand satisfaction. My Integra
with 376,850 actual miles (original
VERY tired engine) finally croaked.
Found the "S", liked it, and got the 0%
financing. I am in LOVE with this car-
the "squishy/squealy tires" and soft
suspension are exactly what I need for
my job. Indeed, I am 5'10 and 135 lbs,
so the seat-comfort complaints might be
valid for larger drivers. What I love
is how quiet it is, the impeccable
build quality, the ample power and the
incredible gas mileage (39.6 avg). Turn
the key and drive it for 10 years. I
trust it.

Best Features

The hiway ride is the best feature. The engine is second. The "S" interior, factory alloy wheels and foglamps make a very bland car acceptable (I am 29. Cruise is very responsive, hibeams the best I have ever seen in any car (I suggest aftermarket H4 WhiteLight bulbs).

Worst Features

The rear seat is awful-no leg/foot room. No glove compartment lock or light. The side trim was placed badly (it dings EASY). Buy the Xenon HID bulbs, a B&M shortshifter, a small factory spoiler, and theres a winner. Mines got 39k already. DEPENDABILITY and ECONOMY.
