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


This was originally my wife's car, but as I am now the one who needs to save on gas millage, it is now mine. I do not mind the look of this car at all. The LE actually has a pretty nice interior. The 5-speed manual also allows me to get a little more power than I would expect from a compact as well.

Note, I am 5' 7". What kills me is that the steering wheel does not telescope. This is important because it's position is basically right on the dash, and the pedals are pretty high up, close to the seat. If I move seat closer to the wheel, my legs are cramped. If I move to where my legs are comfortable, my arms are completely outstretched. Worst seat/wheel design I've ever used.

Best Features

Wood grain looks nice on dash. The gas millage is so good that I cannot justify getting rid of this car.

Worst Features

Telescoping steering wheel, or pushing floor pedals further away from seat.
