Pros: Maintenance free and 35 mpg.115,000 trouble free miles. Only oil changes every 7500 miles and a set of tires. I'll buy another one if it ever wears out. I'm going for 300,000!
Cons: noneGreat car
Cons: paintbest car i have ever owned. the only thing i wish was better is there paint .the car gets39 mpg on highway . my son has 2010 it only gets 33 or34 still good
A bummer of a ride
Pros: 6-cd changer, traction control, ABS
Cons: unpredictable handling--takes fun out of driving.Steering/handling is unpredictable--a Toyota technician said it's due to camber designed to handle quicker but it also results in inability to hold a straight line. Great fuel economy. Trips longer than about 150 mi create fatigue, discomfort -- rough ride, hard seats with limited adjustments. Great for short trips. Good visibility, okay stereo, easy entrance/exiting. No hint of accelerator or brake problems. I got what I paid for
Pros: She moves quickly into freeway traffic without hesitation
Advice: I went from a luxury car to this car and I advice you to dare itHello my name is Lenoire and not only have I test driven the 2010 Toyota Corolla LE, I am also a proud owner of one. Needless to say there is nothing slow about this vehicle. She goes from 0 to 60 in seconds as I enter the fast lane on the I-45 North Freeway and Veterans Memorial, something I was not able to do with my older car for fear of being hurt. She's economical,beautiful and stylish all rolled up in one name: Toyota Corolla LE. She's excellent.
Pros: almsot everything
Cons: the compartment inside that broke
Advice: Buy one :)I bought this car brand new in 04 and am still loving it. It now has 80,000 miles on it and I have no complaints except for one of the compartments inside that broke loose. No regrets at all.
Pros: 6 CD changer, the looks of the 'S' model, especially the interior equipment ...
Cons: Engine power
Advice: Consider a slightly owned Camry for the same price?I purchased my Corolla based on it's reputation for being the most reliable car in the world. I feel this was true, as in past tense. As for the newer models, the feel pretty good overall. I have owned many cars over the past 20 years and feel that Toyota needs to look at 'quality' like they used to. Following are some of the issues that I personally don't like: the steering isn't as tight/precise as it should be, sound dampering needs some work-too much road/engine noise and the small 1.8L 4-cyl engine isn't adequate enough for anything more than a straight road. This car needs a more horse power and probably a 2.0L engine at the very least. I've heard a lot of things about the paint quality, this worries me. Let's see if Toyota will do better than the domestic standard, which is to pretend that they don't know about the problem and ignore it until they have to face it in court/class action etc. Otherwise, not a bad car overall.
