2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, Youngstown, NY, April 23, 2013 11:20why is my suspension totaled
2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, Hahira, GA, October 31, 2012 10:26I, my daughter and my youngest son all bought the 2005 corolla. They have 85,000 and 120,000 miles, I have 139,000 miles. We have only bought tires, brakes (me at 110,000) and standard oil & filter. I replaced the long cooling belt at 90,000 just as a precaution. The engine trouble light came on at 138,000, it was just the gas cap was not tight, the computer print out said it could be loose wire on sensor of tranny, but the gas cap took care of it. WHAT A GREAT CAR!!! i'm in south Georgia they are in Michigan and indiana.
2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, Clermont, GA, March 14, 2012 15:51Bought mine at 50k in 07 I've put 150,000 on it since and the only repairs I've had to make is the throttle position sensor .
2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, Taunton, MA, September 28, 2011 11:04This is car has had numerous issues the transmission slips since the first week I bought it. The interior console has broken twice and Toyota fixed the first one because it was deemed defective but will not replace the second one. The computer died while I was driving it and stranded me. This was repaired but Toyota knew of the issue and never contacted owners. This is my third and last Toyota. I believe their quality safety and value have seriously declined since my first car purchase.

2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, Massapequa, NY, December 06, 2010 08:00At 90,000 the computer quit and so did the car at a stop light ($1300.00+ repair at dealer). Had 2 oxygen sensors go at different times repaired for total of $600.00. The last Toyota I ever buy.
2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, Bronx, NY, October 16, 2010 07:41Electric control module will go at some point so make sure you have your car under warrenty. My experience, I had to change a few senors due to the check engine light that rank up cost after a while and also electric issues with this car. Great gas per mile but the long term this toyota car is not reliable.
2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, San Jose, CA, July 25, 2010 12:22I have no specific complains about this car but , i met an accident last week and realised the car does not stop if you apply brakes suddenly on this car, so please don't even try putting brakes when you have to stop all of a sudden rather try to escape the collision. And More over Air bags did not come out of the car :( that was something i was not prepared for . Heard similar complains from lot many Toyota owners who have met accidents in past . So please drive this car slow and safe , its good on gas but not very good on safety. Hope this review would help someone looking for some inforation on this car.
2005 Toyota Corollagbusby, Houston, TX, June 03, 2010 16:16I have a 2005 toyota corolla cannot pass the emission test because of a check engine light. Toyola dealer says it needed a electronic computer unit has the ECU replaced and after driving the car away from the dealer, the check engine light came back on. I has to pay 805.00 for a ECU. Then Toyota ran another check and said that another transmission was needed and that it would cost me $2990.00 for one. What can I do?Enthusiast
2005 Toyota CorollaVisitor, Wilmington, NC, May 25, 2010 19:52I've got 70,000 miles and it has been very reliable with minimum issues. Just replaced a failed battery. Other than oil and filter changes, the only other maintenance I've done so far is change the spark plugs. The ignition control module failed and was replaced at 36,000 mi. while under warranty. My only gripe is that for a few years now it has had a minor oil drip from the front main seal that I have yet attempted to fix.
2005 Toyota CorollaTWWALT, Sutter Creek, CA, February 18, 2010 15:12BEST TOYOTA I HAVE EVER OWNED. GAS MILEAGE IS GREAT. HANDLES WELL. WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT.Enthusiast
2005 Toyota Corollacaddyman, Jefferson, GA, June 23, 2009 11:51Bought mine used with 10k on it. I like the gas mileage 38-41mpg hwy 34-35mpg city (with 5-speed manual) depending on how agressively I drive. I also like the ride & handling. What I don't lik e is the noise level on the highway especially on coarse road surfaces. It gets so loud you can't hear the radio or passengers talk unless you shout. The standard radio sound system is lousy & the CD player sometimes skips when I hit a bump \Enthusiast
