2003 Toyota Corolla Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love my vehicle it is just excellent!
The seats are comfortable, its all just
so perfect. I used to always buy ford's
until my corolla, now i'll never want a
ford again. The only flaw that i have
found in this vehicle is its lack of
power compared to the weight of the
vehicle.


Best Features

the braking, exterior styling, comfortable seats, reliable


Worst Features

higher horsepower engine, lighter vehicle weight.

2003 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I just traded in my '97 Toyota Corolla
for an '03 Corolla S, and I am
completely amazed. It's very quiet at
highway speeds, well at every speed.
It's very refined, and the gas mileage
just makes me smile. The interior room
is very deceptive when looking at the
car from the outside, it's huge
inside. The stock audio system
(6spkAM/FM/CD) is okay. Overall this
is a lot of car for the money, and
with Toyota's reputation there was no
other choice for me.


Best Features

Instrument cluster lights @ night (S Model), temp display, plenty of cubbies, 2 power outlets, smooth ride and quietness, very good gas mileage


Worst Features

Matching interior lights (cluster and HVAC controls), bigger wheels and tires for the S model, ABS standard

My wife wanted the car and in $14k range

Accura and Accords before? Am Totally
Impressed.

3 Way radio could saound little better, steering wheel positioing seems a little strange, but getting use to it.

2003 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I had a lot of time to buy a car, and
I'm loyal to Japan, Honda in particular
because I'd had an '88 Civic that was
frugally equipped but loads of fun to
drive and extremely reliable.
Disappointed with some Honda test
drives, I looked more closely at Subaru
and Toyota, and noticed that the ever-
conservative Corolla was redesigned and
affordable for me. Did lots of
research, which led to a test drive and
purchase. I'm not easily impressed,
but this car has impressed me, and of
all the cars I test drove, it was the
only one I felt really comfortable in.


Best Features

Great interior, S body cladding makes it look less tippy, white face gauges, huge trunk. Perky engine (130hp is 38 more hp than my Civic), nice shifter, good gas mileage. No sulfur smell (fingers crossed).


Worst Features

Seat fabric that clings less to pet hair, pocket on back of passenger seat for maps, etc., felt-lined change box.
