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


The Corolla has been mechanically sound throughout my ownership. Other than gas and oil, there have been no outside expenses. I got the 5 sp, which I think is a must for a small car, and have not been disappointed. The car handles well, brakes well, and gets up to hwy speeds with no problem. Living in NYC, I do not approach the sticker mpg claims. Generally around 25-27 around town and 33 on hwy. My only complaint is the ease in which this car is dented. Both front quarter panels have been dented, and simply from someone leaning on them. But overall, this has been a quality car that I will be trading in (need more space for growing family). Good job Toyota.

Best Features

Love the interior, the stereo kicks, love the 5 sp. and sunroof

Worst Features

Improve the integrity of the metal used on the outside. A hybrid would be awesome too
