2005 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


I bought our 05 CE certified used as a second commuter vehicle...during high gas prices. The gas mileage, build quality, and appearance are all excellent. Top mileage in gentle conditions (mostly highway, around 60 mph) we get 36 mpg. Average close to 400 miles per tank. I like the simple dash layout and open feel of the cabin. I am less happy with the ride quality. Pronounced road noise and jittery ride at highway speeds. On the highway it also feels light and gets pushed around my passing trucks or high winds. Know this is because it has a smaller wheel base and light frame for gas mileage. Considering trading up to Camry or Lexus. Need a better ride as a is suffer vertigo.

Best Features

Gas mileage, excellent build quality, dash layout, plush seats wear like iron, pretty tan interior, exterior styling.

Worst Features

Reduce road noise. Improve ride quality if possible given the size of the vehicle.
