2005 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Overall it is a great car. Fun to drive, a lot of pep for a car this size (without A/C, and only driver). Good design, holds up well. Got the car Feb 2005 - and it has 90,000 miles on it Sept 2008. No Major complaints, would recommend to anyone. Had to get the ECU changed within the first couple of months because it was hard to start. The tires wore extremely bad on edge even after Toyota Dealership aligned them Only 16K on 60K tires. Got them aligned recently and it has been much better. Passenger window rattles at any speed. Also the idle/tensioner pulley makes ticking noises and has been replaced 5 times, yes five times. Without the extended warranty I'm sure this would probably be costly.

Best Features

6-CD changer is awesome, overall looks and dependability are high

Worst Features

Mechanical issues (idle/tensioner pulley), better noise reduction from road noises and rattles/and other various noises
