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


Poor mileage, 26211 m / 981 g = 26.72 mpg. Awkward steering wheel, seat, foot pedal geometry. Steering wheel too far forward when seat adjusted properly for leg length, you'd have to sit in one to understand, it's more than just seat position. Fun to drive, reliable, great fit and finish. 07/08 government mileage ratings should reflect more realistic MPG. Very comfortable, lots of room, adequate power. Really poor factory Goodyear Integrity tires only lasted 25K, new Michelin Pilot replacements much better in snow, rain, cornering & MPG.

Best Features

Moonroof, ABS, side airbags (non curtain in 2004).

Worst Features

Toyota should replace horrible factory tires with longer lasting better performing tires. Fix strange seating steering wheel geometry. Otherwise very good car.
