2003 Toyota Corolla Sedan 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 Sedan 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

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


Review

Problems galore since I got it a year
ago...suspension brackets replaced,
interior panels replaced due to noises.
Currently, front dash buzzes and
rattles, instrumentation panel buzzes,
car lurches forward when at a
stoplight, weird horn like noise when
reversing, rust spot forming on roof!
Ridiculous for this to happen to a
toyota! I wanna sell it already...


Best Features

Good gas mileage, smooth ride, dependable.


Worst Features

Shoddy paint, too many buzzes and rattles, not solid after driving for one year.Be careful folks...test drive and listen to your corolla!

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


Review

I compared several cars before I
decided on the corolla. I got more for
my money than I would have with the
other ones I was considering. I had a
99 Monte Carlo and selling realestate
it was hard for my clients to get in
and out of the back seat and the gas
mileage was another issue not a fuel
efficent car. Now I have both fuel
efficent car, plus style.


Best Features

I like everything about the car. Very easy for me to handle and park. Good gas mileage.


Worst Features

Have the driver side seat to have more options for adjustment. Since I am under 5'2" another notch in height would be nice, but I do fine like it is.
