2008 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


First new vehicle we have purchased for a number of years, so we were looking for a great value. I have owned Toyotas in the past and have been impressed with their reliability. We compared this car against the Honda Civic and Mazda 3. We liked the Mazda the best based on design, look and finish, but decided it wasn't worth the extra $2-3K. Honda was overpriced as well. Overall we are satisfied except I hope the gas mileage improves with age. We have been getting mid-20's on a mix of urban/rural commuting and the best so far was 32 mpg on an all interstate highway trip. Driver comfort is not great on long trips. Steering wheel is too far away when you adjust the seat for proper leg room

Best Features

"S" styling, power moonroof, great headlights,smooth engine, safety features, great brakes, very quiet interior, largest trunk of this class, has the feel of a well made car.

Worst Features

Better quality radio with controls on steering wheel, aux plug for I-pod, interior finish is somewhat "cheap" looking on S-models, longer steering column or telescopic, trunk release on key fob, 6-way power seat option for driver's side.
