2006 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I love this car. It's reliable, it's sort of fun to drive, and it gets great gas mileage. I wish I hadn't gotten the CE base model though, because it lacks power windows, doors, and cruise control. I had to have the cruise control installed aftermarket. It started making this weird sound every time I started it up, that would go away after a while. Ran great, no problems. Then my girlfriend bought a Lexus (Toyota motor) and it made the same sound, so I stopped worrying about it. If you want a great little commuter car that is super reliable, then this is your car.


Best Features

Steering wheel. I love the feel of the wheel. It corners really well too.


Worst Features

More standard features on the CE model. Better performance, better styling.

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


Review

Loved my '87 Corolla...had it 11 years (bought it used). 30 mpg when I retired it. 2000: great: 38 mpg when I traded it for this piece of crap: tranny replaced at 96K, just told I need a new radiator. Brake pedal winks when the AC is on (dealer told me it was normal). I only get 32 mpg at best (stick shift!, not my driving. I got 41 mpg on a rented Cobalt). Radio jumps stations (already replaced when the CD player got jammed). Car is too big: too many blind spots compared to older models. Back head rests block rear view (as did the 2000), removed and stored for trade-in. Even the paint on the body below the door isn't smooth. Seats don't go down fully (overstuffed).


Best Features

Sun roof. Nothing else. I hate this car!


Worst Features

Replace back head rests w/ a Honda/Volvo style...w/a hole int he middle so the driver can see through them. Improve your quality: TQM is not RFT! Reduce the stuffing the rear seats so they lay down flatter.

2006 Toyota Corolla XRS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

I absolutely love this car, it is pretty surprising how quick this car is! Also loving the gas mileage! Handles amazing. I'd line it up against a stock Civic si vtec, or a stock mustang gt, at anytime! Already beat both! All I can say is wow!


Best Features

6 spd manual trans, vvtl-i engine, 6 disc in dash cd player. and the overall look of the car itself


Worst Features

I really have no complaints as of now. I would love it if it had leather interior. That's about it.

2006 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have purchased this car in 06/2006 and had driven less than 9K miles per year. The car suddenly stopped on the highway with 18 K miles on it, the issue has been traced to a faulty ECU (Computer) and did some research on the internet and it seems to be a common problem for this model. I have called Toyota customer service and they have taken care of the towing costs to my home town and replaced the part as it was still under warranty.


Best Features

Low Maintenance, used to be a reliable car until the ECU problem.


Worst Features

Full Spare Tire should be included for the LE Package.

2006 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I really enjoy the nice comfortable ride, and low engine noise. The radio isn't all that bad either for this model. The only thing I would change is the annoying seat belt warning, and add the power package to all the cars no matter what model. I'll definitely be taking it in to get power door locks put in this week. Other than that, it's a great little car so far, with no other complaints.


Best Features

quiet, comfortable reliable car


Worst Features

Please get rid of the seat-belt warning and also put power windows, and door locks in all your models.
