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


I was initially impressed with the
styling of the '03. Kind of european,
not nearly as pedestrian as our '00. We
wanted a manual, we ended up with an
automatic. The car was driven up over
the Sierra Nevada mountain range as
part of our test drive. The car handled
beautifully on hairpin turns, and had
more than enough power to climb the
miles long road. The climb was done
with overdrive defeated. With O/D off
the car never doenshifted, there was
plenty of power. The car does not feel
underpowered. Fit and finish of the car
is very good. There is more room due to
the new styling, very welcome indeed.
The car is very, very solid.

Best Features

Body styling, transmission shifts smoothly, shift points allow for plenty of power to the wheels. Improved visibility.

Worst Features

More front legroom. I am 6'0" and a few more inches would have been appreciated.
