Great Mileage, Poor comfort
By IllesheimVet on


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


Bought new for wife. At 5ft 2in tall she loves it! I (at 6ft 2in) found it to be more uncomfortable than my old 1990 Corolla. The steering wheel is too far away and not adjustable. The armrests on the doors are very hard and my left arm goes to sleep when driving even short distances and the seats provide little thigh support for taller people. The serpentine belt squeaks constantly, (tensioner?) The valence panel below the front bumper is very flimsy and easily cracked.. Be careful when loading the trunk. The curved support arms may crush items when the lid is closed.

Best Features

Fuel economy is great. Parts and fluids are easy to find. Fold down rear seats and large trunk is a plus. Oil changes are easy with accessible filter.

Worst Features

Adjustable steering wheel. Better ergonomics related to seat position. More substantial below bumper fairings. Use better trunk hinge mechanism instead of intrusive curved arms.
