Conveniences versus inconveniences of the Toyota corolla (2004).

The Toyota corolla itself is a very convenient vehicle for someone my age who is just now starting out with driving, or has been driving since the age of 16. Although the vehicle we have is used, it still runs perfectly. The engine itself is wonderful. When driving the car, it feels very smooth. Acceleration is good as well. There have never been issues with those. The ac/heating condition is also very good and high powered. It does not take a long time for the car to heat up or cool down like most vehicles. Although the radio in the car is older, it still gets the job done. The bass and sound are wonderful with accommodating settings for the current driver to adjust to suit themselves; however, there is no aux input to match our current generation of newer technologies. Meaning, smartphone plug-ins to play music. In any case, there are other alternatives like cassette tapes or wireless transmitters that do the same exact thing as an aux input. The quality just may not be the best and is a little inconvenience when driving due to the poor connection here and there. Since it is a smaller compact car, there are 5 seats available, including the driver and passenger seats, which is plenty for my family and I. The trunk also holds a lot of weight and is very spacious! The car also has a center console with a plug-in inside for you to use for charging devices or anything that can plug-in to it which is very convenient. The glove box is also nice and has valuable space, same as the console. All in all, for an older vehicle, this type Toyota is perfect & gets the job done while providing conveniences for all your needs.

Corolla: An oldie but a goodie

It's an old car, so of course there are some problems, but that's just because of the age of the car. It runs really well for the most part. The gas pedal sticks a little but it is easy to get used to. The breaks are a little touchy, which I prefer over breaking that feels like I have no control over. The steering is smooth. The actual steering wheel can be a problem for shorter people, trying to put it in a place where you can also see your speed, rpm, etc. The radio system, which I think came with the car, is really good; it has crisp sound and is easy to use. The air conditioning system is also one of the best I've seen in any car. It gets cold very quickly and the highest setting is very powerful. The cruise control setting are very intuitive as well. One of the things that I do not like is the windshield wiper settings. It's one of the only things I would change about the car. It either wipes like once every three seconds or goes really fast. An intermediary setting would be nice for lighter rain. The other thing I would change is leg room in the back seats. When trying to drive larger groups, adults have a hard time finding a place to put their feet, especially in the middle seat. The overall look of the car is sleek and modern looking. For a cheap car, old corollas are an awesome choice. Any problems you have with it, you will probably be able to fix for relatively cheap. Mine is at 170k miles and is still running well only needing a new starter since I got it.

A great and reliable car with few issues.

The Toyota Corolla is a great car for many reasons, including its reliability, attractiveness, good value, and fuel efficiency. Very few drawbacks exist for this car. In my experience, the 2004 s model has front bumper issues, where the front bumper clips break and the bottom of the bumper comes loose. The bumper issue is the most serious because it can fall off at any time, and is significantly expensive to fix. In my research, others have also identified this issue as a common matter, and that it results from general wear and tear. I have also experienced the light in the clock burning out but this may just be a fuse; the car is 14 years old, after all! Overall, I love this car because I feel safe driving it, because it has had no engine trouble, and because it looks much more modern than it actually is! A great value from Toyota, for which I am grateful every time I get behind the wheel.
