I test drove a 2003 Corolla S..

Any of you guys know anything about this car?

Is there alot of Aftermarket, Hows the engine in the car? Can I make it a peppy engine?

I have a baby, That's why I'm looking at the 4 door corolla..

Thanks for helping me out in this decision!

The S has a 130 hp 1.8L DOHC VVT-i Engine, a nice 5 speed, ground effects, four doors and white face gauges. I looked at one before the Si. Not bad at all.

If I were you though I'd get the XRS. 170 hp 1.8L DOHC VVTL-i, 6 speed, better ground effects, four doors and white face gauges.

To recap...

170 hp > 130
6 sp > 5 sp

;)


edit: as far as aftermarket, try lokoing up a toyota web board. I know there's TRD SCs out there for the 1.8.

a friend of mine's father got the XRS, Loves it. Never gives any kind of problem. He's not necessarily hard on it, but he flings it around corners and the such.

Consider the Civic ?

i think it's too small and kinda weird looking.

The price is right, but I couldn't see myself driving one. Mid-newer Maximas, newer Altima.

Cheap and reliable while semi spacious...Saturn, yes I said it, I never had any type of maintenence issues with the ones I've had until my sister really beat the hell out of it.

TRD. And nothing else.


Suspension, maybe a SC kit depending on the motor. Clutch, brakes and bushings.

:worthy: Nice! Was it partly cause of what I said?

and I'm with Celerity, go solely with TRD... might be more expensive though.

So how does the yota compare to the SER Spec V? Both have 170hp and 6 speeds. Both are kinda fugly IMO, but I am also in the market for the 4 door kid carrier. I drove the SRT4 and it's a pile IMO. I also drove the new mazda 3 (the sport model, i forget the badge) and was quite impressed. It is very nimble, and has quite a bit of pep. However, I am seriously leaning towards the spec V just for the torque and the aftermarket.

Spec V VS Corrola? Your thoughts?
Anyone driven them both?

I've driven the V. It's heavier than the XRS, but it has a lot more torque.

XRS: 170 hp 127 ft lbs. 2670 lbs
Spec V: 175 hp 180 ft lbs. 2800 +/- lbs, Can't remember the exact number.
