An all-around reliable, fun, fast bargain
Nothing major has ever really gone wrong with my car. It is very reliable.
Definitely get the larger of the two engines! The 1.8L gives this car a dramatic acceleration boost! I've eaten the Honda Civic for lunch with my Corolla!
However, the seats are not as comfortable as I would like. They aren't horrible, but they aren't the best. Definitely invest in seat covers if comfort is high up on your list.
Give the Corolla a chance. It's reliable, fun to drive, has great acceleration and handles well on the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
