I'm looking to take out my aunt's '04 cd player and put in a tape deck for her. She probably won't like anything by Kenwood or Sony, so I was wondering what previous year Corolla's radios would fit. Or how much is it to buy an '04 tape deck from the dealer. Thanks!

You headed down the road of my BIGGEST beaf with Toyota Motor Corporation. The curvature of the 03/04/05 Corolla dash (and radio) makes the selection of any head unit a PITA. While you can probably buy a "single" DIN head unit with cassette deck (hummm pretty rare these days), you'll need to buy the faceplate/dash cover since the stock radio is a "double" DIN. Every faceplate I've ever seen has had a small space above or below for junk storage (or dust collection) which IMHO looks unfinished and ugly as sin. Now I "suspect" that previous Corolla years will fit...but won't fit the curvature of the dash.

I would take a look around at some of the audio installers (I checked out Best Buy to actually see the faceplate in person.)
