Solid, but check for oil problems
Toyota Corolla's are known for their engine oil problems. Oil leaks or burns, you will need to add a quart of oil depending on how many miles you put on the car. I bought the car at 155000, and at 186000 the engine blew out on me.
If you are buying a Corolla, I would advise you to check for oil problems. Do not worry about anything else, this is the single problem that will drive you nuts.
Performance wise it was average, although I wished it will perform better with a stick shift.
Electrical connections were all better than most other car manufacturers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
