2003 Toyota Corolla LE 1.8 from North America
I love my car!
There's a rattling noise that comes from somewhere in the dash, but it's easy to tune out and it's not constant.
The cover for one of the center dash compartments came half off, but it was covered by my warranty.
The window rattles a bit if I'm driving on the highway with it down a couple inches, but I don't know- that may be how it is with all cars. I've never owned anything other than a Corolla.
These are the only problems I've had as of yet. I love driving my car!
The seats are so comfortable, and it's a good thing, since I drive 100+ miles a day 5 days a week.
It's also incredibly roomy and the trunk space is more than adequate.
My favorite part of the car is how well it handles accelerating around turns.
The only minor problem is that on the highway you can't tell when you're speeding since the ride is so smooth. Sure, that's where cruise control comes in handy, but I've got a lead foot and it feels great to fly past all the other cars. Sometimes I'll think I'm going 75 mph and I'm going 90-95mph.
What sucks is that since I drive on the highway so much, the front end of my car is all chipped up. All the other cars and trucks kick up a lot of rocks and pebbles, and I tend to follow a bit close. But that's my own fault.
The car's also got a great sound system.
The two thing I wish the car had is a sunroof and the ability to open the trunk with the key-less entry.
It's an awesome, reliable car.
It's very comfortable with 6 way seat adjustment.
It was a pretty good deal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you wish to protect the front end of your Corolla, there is a product out there I think it is called InvisiBra. It's a thin clear layer of adhesive polymer that works like a regular leather bra, but is pretty much invisible. This will protect your paint from the chips you get on the road, but the layer must be replaced periodically.
