40 MPG and Fun to Drive!

2006 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


We've had this car close to 30 months now and it has been great. The smaller engine is offset by the 5-spd manual and decent handling for the price. Not a single problem yet. But to top it off the mileage is great! We just completed a round trip between San Jose, CA to Vancouver, WA and put over 1500 miles on the car. I tracked the mileage very close and we got 40.2 mpg for the whole trip! Now I need to say we don't speed but drive the posted speed limit (55, 65, 70). We used A/C for a 85% and this total included climbing hill, mountains and around town drives. So obey the posted limits, set the cruise control and enjoy the money you save!

Best Features

Great mileage! Fun to drive with manual trans. Easy to park and handles well!

Worst Features

A bit more padding for the seats but we drove 11 hour stretches and it wasn't too uncomfortable. A little bigger gas tank would make that great mileage even more enjoyable!
