Toyota Corolla, Sedan

I just purchased my 2005 corolla S this last December. I can't say I'm completely satisfied w/ the car, though my quibbles are just minor things such as the lack of a cargo pocket/net on the backs of the seats, where am I supposed to store anything? at 17,500 total you'd think a 1ft square piece of cloth would come w/ the deal.
Otherwise the car is great. I love the manual transmission and the HWY gas miliage is phenomonal. 40+mpg pure HWY driving (I know cause I went on a road trip a month after I got er, talk a about a break in).
Some of the pannels on the dash have slightly warped too, I went to the dealer to get it fixed and they saidd they had to "order" them, but that was 2wks ago. Time to email them.
Great car so far, dealer was really nice too. I'm a college student so he had to work pretty hard to get Toyota Financial to Finance me, I even got 60 months aat 3.9 fixed. Can't say I feel ripped, but I thought the car was a little pricey, but it was the lowest in my area.
OK END, MM

In November I purchased my corolla ce. I too have noticed a slight warp in the dashboard. (right about the cd player.) I haven't gone to the dealer about that though. Curious if anyone else is having the problem with the ignition though. When I drive for a 40 min period or so, turn off the car and try to start it back up in 20 to 30 min, the car will just crank and not start up until I turn the key to off position and try again. I took it to the dealer yesterday and he said that the computer runs a quick check of the system and if it sees even the most minut thing it won't allow you to start your car. He sent me on my way and said it's fine. Should a new car do this? I love the car though. Fun to drive. I've always owned toyotas and as long as they remain reliable I will always own only toyota! (seats could be made a little more confy though) My dad drove my car and it doesn't quite fit bigger people. Kind of a chick or small guy car!

Hey everyone, new member. I am searching for a used car for my first. I saw a 1992 Toyota Corolla on car soup 5 speed manual with 120,000 miles on it. Anybody own one of these cars?

#78 of 113 Hi, new here...Need some info on a 96 Corolla...mk?
May 17, 2005 (2:20 pm)
I just bought a 96 Corolla with 49,000 miles. Hardly used and with absolutely no options.... I have a Sunetun mini tach out of my old Toyota pickup and was wondering where the coil is in this car.... I suspect it's part of the distributor? Theres a group of wires that plugs into the dist., does anyone know if thats where I should be looking? Any help would be, well, helpful. Thanks Chris....

In November 2004 my beloved 95 Toyota Tercel was smashed up in a collision. 10 years that car never gave me a lick of trouble. So when everything was settled in December I went searching for a new car. First choice: Toyota, second choice Honda. I didn't want a new car, wanted a slightly used one (as in let someone else take the big depreciation hit). All the dealerships in my area were pushing to finance, wouldn't accept I was going to pay cash, and some actually blocked me from leaving the dealership until I raised my voice and bolted out the door. Almost all of them wanted me to sign a piece of paper (prior to negotiations) that I would purchase the car if we agreed on a reasonable price [meaning - reasonable to them, not me]. The cars I were looking at were 2002 Jetta and 2001 Honda Civic. So I drove 300 miles to the dealer I purchased my Tercel from and picked up a nice 2002 Corolla S for cheap - only 29k miles, with the Platinum Extra Care warranty -under my price range *and* without hassles all he did was ask me if I wanted it. I love this car, I get 34 mpg, it's more powerful than my Tercel, and roomier. I know it's only a Corolla, but compared to what I had before it makes me feel like a Queen! Only problem is I hear the Cruise Control relay click on first time I set cruise. I figure if that's all I have to complain about in 10 years, then I come off real easy!

Love my new corolla... its got a smooth ride, got a great music system, gives great mileage... everything my 1996 Infinity G20 didnt have - which btw in my opinion is a junk car which gave me nothing but trouble.
Have only driven 400 or so miles in the past 2 weeks ... Planning a road trip on July 1st... cant wait.

Hi, My name is Mike and i live in PA. Just purchased by Corolla yesterday and I am elated. Will be driving this baby 200 miles round trip to work 2-5 days a week so the miles will add up fast!! Looking forward to learning from some experts on here about their knowledge and experiences with the Gen 9 Corolla. Last car was a "99 Saturn SL2 I had for 6 years and 137K miles. The Saturn treated me very well but the Corolla feels like a step up.

But still child hood I am fond of CARs. I love to know more about car engines. Will start bugging you all with lots of questions. I really Like the car. The features are too good.

I got the SRS Air Bag Light Blinking, I got it checked in one place they told me the code 44 is coming with there intial computerized checkup. I asked the dealer about it he said such code does not exist. I don't want people to fool me up
Can any one tell me what this code means?
Does this code exist? Looking on net I found for Ford this code exist.
Do different cars have different codes?
Do I need to look into it immediately.
