2003 Toyota Corolla CE 1.8 VVT-i from North America
Great tourism sedan
The all-new Toyota Corolla has many changes from the other generation, but I remarked some problems:
-Low quality plastic
-Strange noise from dash
-Low quality tires
-Non sporty transmission and drive.
But the car runs 800 kilometers with 45 gasoline liters with smooth drive.
Good car, I recommend it to everybody who has at least 18000 $CAN to invest in a car who has one of the best reputation in the market.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

800km on 45L is a bit optimistic, it's more like 600 km on 50L and that's if you light on the pedal.

800 km to a tank of gas? I get 360 km maximum to a tank with my 04 Corolla which is the same as the 03. Is all your driving done on freeways? Most people do mixed. I was absolutely shocked at the lousy mileage with this car. I am wondering if yours is so much better, whether mine is indeed a lemon. Unfortunately the dealer does not care once you buy the car. I am about ready to buy a Hyundai, seriously... my old Pony got 425 km to a tank and it was a smaller tank than the Corolla...I am very disillusioned with all the advertised promises about Toyota.
