"I got my '03 Corolla CE in 2006 and absolutely love it. Great mileage, great reliability, looks adorable, etc. etc. Whats not to love? Its small and comfortable. Everythings is great but if I had to modify it, it would be the speed on the windsheild wipers. The first mode is too slow, but the second is too quick!"
"I have a 2006 Corolla "Special Edition" with the 5-speed that I bought new. It now has 75,000 kms. The car is extremely good on gas and is fun to drive (I would suggest getting the cruise control though). It handles four adults quite well. Excellent stereo system. My only complaint is the poor paint quality (at least on my car). If I so much as go past a gravel road, I end up with another stone chip. The wiper system could also benefit from a variable setting...the intermittent setting is too quick when it's only a light rain or mist."
