I Love This Car, Runs Great And Gets Good Gas Mileage — There wasn't nothing I disliked about this car. It was small, but for a small family like I have it was great and as well as if you are a high school or college student it would be a perfect car for them.

Great Car — I love the car. I want to get another one, just a newer year. Car is good on gas only had to fill up once a week. Maintenance for this car is reasonable. Engine is very quiet and the body of the car is nice.

Great Little Car — This little car has been very reliable and drives nice. It get very good fuel economy and has cost very little to maintain. It has been wonderfully reliable and is comfortable to drive. We have make many trips to Chicago and have driven it on Vacation to Colorado. It has 130 K mile on it and acts like it has many miles left in it.

2005 Toyota Corolla Type S — Excellent car for a college student or commuter. Has great gas mileage and very economical to maintain. Comfort features not luxurious but power windows and locks are minimum necessities and this car has it. Looks are good especially after a car detail. Black on Black can't be beat!

Great Commuter Car Or Student Vehicle — I have loved this car for 7 years. In fact, I gave it to my teenage son to drive as he got his license last week. Its solid, still gets 34 - 37 miles per gallon. Ive had almost no major maintenance costs. New tires, oil changes and a few minor uppkeeps (lightbulbs in the dash, new battery, etc.) Shes got 168K miles on her and still looks and feels brand new. Great little runner!

Plush upholstry won't let your clothes move when you do.

Excellent Vehicle To Own Until Death Do Us Part. — I've rented corollas before and was impressed with their big car spaciousness and classic style. There's no better vehicle on the road for overall practicallity and you don't feel like you're stuffed into a sardine can. Lots of headroom, sufficient power and road feel to toss her around like a little sports car, and a large trunk. I traded my Cadillac Deville for her, dying at a mere 145,000 miles. I expect the Corolla to last well beyond that number.

Good value for the money and is worry free, which I like.

My Wife Loves It, Great Fuel Economy And Reliable, No Visits To The Dealership For Service. — This is my wife's car she's had it since it was new, it has over 120,000 kms on it and has never been to the service dept. I do all the oil and filter changes, I use Castrol Synthec and a K&N reusable air filter. It gets nearly 50 miles to the gal!! It always starts. It handles pretty good, I have taken it through some twisty roads at pretty fast pace and it was very responsive, it's a 5 speed manuel with a 130 hp 4 cylinder engine. It has a 6 disc CD player and a good sound system.No squeaks or rattles still feels like a new car!!Looks good and is holding up very well, I'd buy another one.

Reliable Car That Is Torturous To Drive. — This is a car that can best be described as a transportation tool. It is not exciting in any way and has nothing redeeming about it other than the fact that it is a solidly-built, reliable car. Nothing else can be said of the car. Get this car only if you want to have a dependable and affordable car (which basically means most people).
