    Anybody own a '06 Toyota Corolla LE?

    I am going to go check one out tomorrow. I've done a fair amount of research both online and with checking out Consumer Reports, and Corollas have pretty much gotten uniformly excellent reviews. I also talked to a buddy in Des Moines who owns an '03 Corolla, and he would give it three thumbs up if he had a third thumb.

    Anyone here own one that can tell me more about it?

    I don't own one, but really don't think you can go wrong. That's like Toyotas most sold model world wide.

    Re: Anybody own a '06 Toyota Corolla LE?

    My sister in law has one, it seems like a box on wheels. Small and loud on the inside with an uncomfortable ride where I can feel every bump.

    Re: Anybody own a '06 Toyota Corolla LE?

    I have an '05 Corrolla S and previously had a '98 Corrolla (CE?). My brother now has the '98 with 110,000+ on it and never have had to make any repairs outside of routine maintenance.

    Love the 05 S too. Highway mileage is routinely 34 mpg or better. I don't think you can really go wrong here.

    And I have the exact opposite opinion of clones26. Mine is very quiet, rides smooth and comfortable.

    Re: Anybody own a '06 Toyota Corolla LE?

    +1000 on Toyota Corollas. I don't know where the "uncomfortable loud ride box on wheels" thing is coming from, our '88 ran to almost 300,000 without major work, until an idiot mechanic accidentally killed it.

    Plenty of power for its size and got 35mpg+
