What a deal...................
Pros: Looks like a race car, not the basic Corolla.
Cons: Rear drum brakes, not a big deal..........My wife forced me to get my son 18, a car..... She brought home a 2006 BMW 3 Series with 86000 miles. I opened the oil cap and blowby city escaped, smoke smoke smoke. I made her return the car and went to the Toyota dealer. A sporty car with power everything, cruise, alloys, tail wing, ground effects, and four doors caught my eye. Not your grandmothers Corolla. This thing looked Sharp'' My boy fell in love as did I. Price $16000 out the door with everything. Nobdoy even comes close, By the way EPA Hhy 38 mpg. We are in love.

Reliable Commuter Car
Pros: Price and Gas Mileage
Cons: Power and lack of standard featuresI bought the very basic level model. It doesn't have power door locks or windows. This is the bottom of the line Corolla. It drives great and I get good gas mileage. It's been more reliable than my last commuter car (Nissan Sentra). However I haven't driven the latest model Sentra so things may have changed.
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
