2004 Toyota Corolla LE, 38k

6 posts in this topic

I can see why they sell tons of these....efficient, inoffensive & well built, it's no wonder it's a default choice of many shoppers.

That being said, it has the WORST front seating on the planet. I could not own or recommend this car for this reason alone. It feels like the seats were designed for Steven Hawking--they force my (average) body up & forward while seated in a position where I can comfortably operate the wheel and pedals. The steering wheel also has a weird angle to it that increases the discomfort.

I wonder how many users are either significantly smaller than me (less than 5'9") or simply take a very short test drive before purchase?

That awkward, upright & bulbous Corolla generation is/was gross.

It's as if an Echo & previous gen. Corolla mated... should of used

a condom or some birth control.

...or find some cute little bug/virus to keep any of their type from reproducing and destroy the gene pool.

I've been in a couple of '02-07 Corollas. I wasn't impressed. My Cobalt feels more solid all around, and even Hyundai's interior quality puts it to shame.

My friend has one. Total chick car in my opinion. We road tripped to see some friends at school over break, drove 80 mph the whole time and got an impressive 30 mpg. Can't beat the gas mileage. I did find the seating position awkward though (6'1" 160 lbs). It can go pretty quick...... she got a ticket for 91 in a 65.....she was lucky though since we were going 105 right before that :rolleyes:
