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


Review

I LOVE MY CAR IT HAS BEEN IN 2
ACCIDENTS AND I HAVE NO DAMAGE. I WAS
REAR ENDED TWICE AND I HAVE A MINOR
NECK INJURY FROM THE FIRST WRECK, BUT
MY CAR HAS NO DAMAGE. IT WAS INSPECTED
AND THEY ADVISED NO DAMAGE. NOT EVEN A
SCRATCH...


Best Features

I LOVE THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION AND THE FUEL ECOMONY.


Worst Features

I ALSO OWN A 2003 CHEV IMPALA. THAT STEREO SYSTEM FROM THE FACTORY BLOWS AWAY THE COROLLAS STREREO SYSTEM. I RECOMMEND AN UPGRADE TO THE STEREO.

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


Review

Just bought my Corolla last week. Rides
like a charm- very comfortable and
plush; makes me feel like I'm driving a
Lexus(actually the same platform as the
Lexus IS300, only with a 4 cylinder
engine). Toyota has done a great job
with their restyling of this car.
Performance, feel and design are head
and shoulders above the similar Nissan
Sentra and Mazda Protege. Reasonably
priced and reliable as it gets, you
cannot go wrong with the Corolla.


Best Features

Interior comfort; exterior looks; Outstanding fuel economy; Handling; Smooth ride; Reasonable price


Worst Features

Slight lean on sharp turns; clutch pedal is a little awkward and tough to push all the way down

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


Review

Bought a 03 Corolla for my wife in
January. Love that car so much, I
bought one for me in March. Build
quality is excellent, it's quiet,
smooth, refined. The engine is peppy,
I'm getting 28MPG in the city and it's
not even broken in yet. Not enough can
be said about it's exterior styling...I
turn heads everywhere I go, people are
shocked to learn it's a base model
Toyota. The steering is precise, the
brakes are excellent, and there is a
ton of trunk space. I'm not that tall,
but there's plenty of leg room, both
front and back. The dash and controls
are well laid out, very logical.
Overall I am SUPER happy with these
cars!


Best Features

Just about everything mechanical, and really love the styling. Toyota's reputation is a definate plus!


Worst Features

Ask someone who knows what music is SUPPOSED to sound like BEFORE you toss a stereo in and call it "deluxe".

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
