2004 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I had a 1998 Corolla VE before I bought this used vehicle from the previous owner at 65k miles. It was well maintained with detailed service records and looking at the records, there were no quality problems. Since then I have kept up with the Toyota maintenance schedule for this car and have not had any problems either. Overall, it has been reliable, fuel efficient, comfortable and rides quietly. The manual transmission makes it fun to drive. Clutch engagement at lower gears is a little abrupt. However, as you get used to the car, you will figure out how to work it smoothly.

Best Features

Fuel economy (8 mo average is 36 mpg. can reach 40 at times), roominess, quiet ride, cruise control, good looking tail lights, good side profile - although front view is a bit odd - overall nice looking (the last part about the side and front could apply to my beagle cross as well!)

Worst Features

The cover in the trunk that covers the spare tire and tools is flimsy and could be better.
