#1593 of 4027 still funny noises from 03' corolla s
Mar 07, 2002 (3:30 pm)
after a few days now, there is still rattling coming from the car!!!! it only happens if you run into some rough pavement, but you can definitely hear it. its coming from the driver door panel, right beneath the driver window. also, i have noticed that if i go over speed bumps at low speed the rear suspension makes a "squeeking" sound. really annoying. just my observations so far after a few days of owning it. i think its so uncharacteristic of toyotas to have any squeeks, rattles, etc, especially if its brand new!! damn, even our other car, a 1992 camry is still solid as a rock. well, gonna take it in soon to see whats going on.

Ifan- On my car, I didn't notice any temp. related rattling. Seems like most new 03' corolla owners have some sort of minor glitches huh?

Has anyone tried cars4u.com for car purchasing? They offered $24200(on the road price)for 2003 Corolla LE+Auto. The delivery time is 2 to 3 weeks. It is very attractive!

I was driving home in freezing rain last night after a tire rotation and my check engine light came on. I couldn't find anything wrong. THis happened a couple years ago too and toyota couldn't find anything wrong. Its a 92 LE. Anyone know why its happening? Thanks.

I suspect the light was signaling the computer detected something in the emissions system and "was coding" (as I think they refer to it). "Coding" can be as simple as the gas cap not being on tight, or or an oxygen sensor, or a myriad of other things. Your service garage can read the code, and determine what was detected.
My 92 Acura has been havings some problems, and the codes have been read twice in the past two weeks. Newer cars have even greater capabilities over and above our 92's.

I checked out the '03 Corolla today at the Minneapolis Auto Show, and was disappointed they had no LE model. But they had a silver CE and red S. I was very impressed by the quality and room of the CE's interior, very classy in light grey. I'd say it's 2nd in class behind the Golf/Jetta. The rear seat was plenty roomy, in the same range as Focus, Protege, and Elantra. I really needed the seat height adjuster from the LE because the seat cushion was too horizontal.
When I saw the Mazda 6 sedan on a turntable, the first thing I thought was that it looked like a stretched Corolla. The rear and side views in particular; the 6 has a more agressive grill, and smaller headlights.

Had local dealer call us when the new Corolla's came in. Drove up to test drive one.
Approached within 15 feet, stopped, turned around and left (it was an S model). From the 3 road tests I've read since, I don't think we're missing anything.

Some guy wants to sue because he feels gouged because he bought a 2002 which supposedly cost "a significant amount more with less content". He wants to file a lawsuit against Toyota. I can't wait to see how far this goes before it flops. If he gets a decent lawyer, he/she won't even let the case occur because loss is inevitable.

#1602 of 4027 Looking for a Corolla
Mar 11, 2002 (8:34 am)
Hi all. I am looking to buy a used Corolla/Prizm. Probably 91-95 year. Just looking for advice on problems, pricing or any quirks I should know about. Thanks to all for any info.
Just FYI, this would be my daily driver, and the only must have is a manual tranny.
Looking on MSN they state the 94 was available with a 1.8L turbo engine. I would tend to stay away from the turbo for maintenance and reliabilty reasons. Is this appropriate based on your experiences?
