2007 Toyota Corolla Colour Collection 1.6

Faults:

I have had no problem so far, but of course it is too early. From what I have heard about Toyota reliability, I don’t expect problem for a while.

General Comments:

I have had my Corolla Colour Collection for almost nine months now, and I really love this car.

The ride and comfort is great, and the petrol consumption is not bad either.

I had many cars before, but this is certainly the best. I’ve had no problems so far.

The only comment that I have is the heater & ventilation control panel is too small and not well visible, especially at day time. The clock is also useless. Cannot been seen easily.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm from the U.S.; what exactly is a Corolla Colour Collection? How is that different from Corolla's sold in the states here?

“Colour Collection” is a special edition introduced here in UK during 2006. It offers the choice of just three colours, Silver, Blue and Blank, all in metallic. It has good specification, almost to the top of the range models. Everything is the same.

What kind of fuel mileage are you getting? I'll do the conversions, as the US has yet to join the rest of the world by using the metric system. LOL. Also, what size engine is in your car and is it a manual shift?

My Corolla has 1600 cc engine with automatic transmission. According to the computer I get around 34 miles per gallon (UK Gallon).

I purchased a 2008 Toyota Corolla in July 2007. I've owned three Toyota Corollas.

This one has a problem with excessive condensation on the interior of the windshield, when the car's ventilation system has been set on defrost on a cold rainy day. When the car is then turned off and left outside for a few hours -- there is enough condensation on the inner windshield, directly over the vent, to actually drip into the vent, causing a mildew odor in the air conditioning unit when it is turned on.

I had an opportunity to drive two other 2008 Toyota Corollas while this problem was being diagnosed by the dealership, and these Corollas too had this issue -- though not quite as severely as mine. I was told this was normal by the dealership where I purchased this car.

Has anyone else experienced this problem? I question if this condition is normal -- what's normal about having moisture inside your vehicle, why have I never experienced this in a Toyota prior to the 2008.

There is zero point in getting UK Corolla MPG information if you live in America. This is because the USA never sold a 1.6 version, indeed they are 1.8 petrols. I know, I live in Texas and am a Brit. I drive a 1.8 version. I think you will find my assumption beyond absolutely correct.
