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

2003 Toyota Corolla 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.

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


Review

We bought this car for my wife to drive
to work because of her long commute.
The great gas mileage is what caught
our attention as well as the body style
of the "S" model. We purchased the 5
speed and were pleasantly surprised by
it's power. It's not a sports car by
any means but it has good acceleration
and reasonable handeling for a car in
this price range. It is also very roomy
and well built. I'm 6'4" and have
plenty of room in any seat. I would
recommend this car highly to anyone
looking looking for a good all around
small sedan. Buy the 5 speed and you
will be very satisfied with this little
jewel.


Best Features

Tremendous fuel economy(averaging 39mpg). Peppy and responsive engine with the 5 speed. Exterior styling. Overall build quality. Good interior roominess.


Worst Features

Lower center of gravity with wider tires for stability. Better stereo system. The signal on the radio gets lost too easily. Placement of the speakers requires high volume to get decent sound quality.

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


Review

The car blows around on the highway
when there is wind. You have to keep
2 hands on the wheel. I have the
sunroof on my LE and when you pull
back the cover it rattles. Good gas
milage, good pick up for a Corolla.


Best Features

Sun roof. You need the sunroof with this vehicle.


Worst Features

Beter Stereo
