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


Review

I bought my corolla in Nov 2002 and
after 4 months i have noticed about a
hundred paint chips all over my hood
and along the sides of my car... This
is my second toyota to date and i have
never in my life seen such a disaster..
The dealer says it is normal wear and
tear... Is anyone else having this
problem??? Oh ya, and now i am noticing
rusting spots... Tanya -MA

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


Review

I bought my Corolla ten days back and I
already have more than one thousand
miles on it! It is very fun to drive.
Got all the options on the S model,
including the leather seats.


Best Features

Exterior and Interior Styling, Audio System, Sun Roof, Foldable rear seats, Front and Rear leg room, height adjustable driver seat.


Worst Features

Center arm rest should be raised. Seats should have lumbar support. Automatic climate control would be nice.

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


Review

I bought a 2003 Corolla for the same
reasons most folks do -- basic,
reliable transportation at a budget
price. When the car finally arrived
(about 5 weeks after date of purchase),
I was very pleasantly surprised to
discover that I loved the way it looked
and drove (hadn't bothered to test-
drive the car because I owned a Corolla
previously). With 130 HP, 125 ft/lb
torque, and a manual transmission, the
engine is a LOT peppier than my old
Corolla (100 HP, AT). The surprisingly
roomy interior, super-comfy seats, CD
player, and sunroof all make for a very
pleasant driving experience. I
couldn't be happier with this car!


Best Features

Surprisingly roomy interior, lotsa trunk space, peppy little engine, GREAT gas mileage


Worst Features

Only the most minor of quibbles - the door guards seem to be set a bit low, especially since half the cars at the supermarket parking lot seem to be SUVs

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


Review

This was a great buy. I am in love with
my car and will drive it anywhere and
everywhere. I have had no problems at
all and I have no complaints. If your
in southern california, go to LONG
BEACH TOYOTA on the PCH and for
repairs, go to Chevron in Seal beach.
GREAT PEOPLE and IMMPECABLE service.
They make you feel like a king/queen.


Best Features

sunroof, radio/cd, wood grain, seats, AND THE COLOR Indigo ink pearl!


Worst Features

none really. it has the new car smell, which could be changed to a better scent.

Review

I shoulda kept my 1999 solara. V-6,
silky smooth, quiet, comfortable. I
got 25-28 mpg! This new corolla I
have has gotten 29 mpg these first 4
tanks! (all highway miles...no traffic) I
shoulda gone for the plush comfort
rather than thinking I'd save gas!


Worst Features

Gas mileage
