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


I purchased this car new. I have had the oil changed every 5,000 miles and it sits in my garage when not being driven. At 34,000 miles the car started making a screeching sound like a belt was bad and it began shifting roughly. The dealer said I needed the transmission fluid changed and a new belt. $312.00 later my car seems to be ok. I have had a Ford and Pontiac in the past and never had to make these types of services until 100,000. I am disappointed with this car and feel that the quality that Toyota is known for is slipping. Will never buy another Corolla.

Best Features

Roomy trunk. Bright headlights really helps with night driving.

Worst Features

Road noise at highway speeds is loud. Better reliability.
