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


Got the used car in 2008. High resale value bites both ways, doesn't lose much value when selling, but ain't getting as much as competitor cars when buying. Decent build quality, but some haphazard metalwork and greasing present, probably clogged door's drain hole. Car is relative quiet and comfortable, but steering feels artificial, especially when hard turning corners; feels like wheel orientation and steering don't match up. Rattling present at 30K, unacceptable for Toyota. Lot of blind sides when backing up; lot of newer cars seem to have similar problems (trunk too high, pillar too thick, window too small). Bumpers can't take a hit. Reliable but disappointing purchase.

Best Features

Reliability, quietness, ride quality.

Worst Features

Steering, better design for improved views, better quality control. Stronger bumpers that actually does their job. Auxiliary ports (probably already implemented).
