2005 Toyota Corolla User Reviews
- $5,146 - $6,349
- No trim specified for this review
- 40+ MPG, build quality, utility, value
- None really, well the seats could be better for really long trips
With today's $2.50 per gallon gas this car keeps a little fun in road trips. I routinely get over 40 MPG (best 43 MPG for a tank) on the highway - see how you Hybrid owning friends react to that statement! I paid $13,400 OTD and so far it's not cost me one cent beyond oil changes. Toyota sure knows how to build them - in 6000 miles the oil level does not drop at all.
It will haul four normal sized adults and their gear with ease, there's plently of power if you wind the engine out a little. Mine does not have much in the way of options and I do miss power door locks and cruise control. It doesn't have the sporty feel of my 94 Civic EX but, none-the-less, the Corolla engine is at least the equal of the Honda V-tec, and the high seat position and great view grow on you.
The only niggles I have are a couple of minor dashboard vibrations, I have not had it into Toyota yet but I'm sure they can eliminate them. The Goodyear OEM tires seem like, well, like OEM tires, noisy and wear fast. Really long trips are not this car's forte - if you do a lot of 8 hour plus days you might want a Camry.
