2003 Toyota Corolla 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.

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


Review

I have owned a Toyota in the past, and
felt comfortable buying another, after
having owned a 99 Neon. I bought a
stylish looking 03 Corolla, and was not
disapointed... Until I drove it home.
I commute 164 miles a day round trip on
a highway that is quite windy year
round. I hit a wind gust of about 35
and it blew me a lane over. Holding
onto the wheel (which could be a foot
closer to the driver) was a white
knucled affair. Ordinarily this
wouldnt be a problem, but putting 50000
miles a year on it, I need it to feel
right. Unfortunately I had to return
it and get my old car back. The car is
just too tall for its wheelbase.


Best Features

Stylish Exterior and Fun toys to play with. S/A a twilight sensor, and a Better than average Radio.


Worst Features

Either lower the car, or increase the wheelbase. Extend the Steering wheel out more.

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


Review

Just had my first 1500 mile oil change.
Love the car so far. Milage is low yet
for every day driving, 28 mpg. The only
thing I hate is the steering wheel is
to far away and the arm rest is too
short. I'm 6'1"


Best Features

Looks, seat support, sound system.


Worst Features

Decrease engine noise during pick-up. Very noisy during this time.

Review

I love my car! It is my first new car,
and it is great! It has tons of room
inside (enough to fit 6 people...if
they squeeze in the back!) It rides
smooth and is the cutest car ever!
