You'll wonder why you ever considered another
Absolutely nothing!! If you're tired of bringing your car to the dealer for problem after problem...you'll love this car.
Purchased new, S model was only 5-spd on lot..I'm not a fan of tacked on "aero" kits, but it's growing on me. I drive a great distance for work, and now have over 56,000 miles on this car in app. 14 months of ownership!! I have not experienced one single problem. Yes there is a great deal of road noise, and a few MINOR creaks now and again... but this is still an "ECONOMY" car, costing under 16,000-loaded-out the door. Compared to my Nissan Sentra made in 1988, this Corolla feels almost lexus like. I'm 6'4" and 285lbs. with a muscular frame, and I fit well. After regular trips of 350 miles non-stop..I arrive none worse for the wear. Gas mileage is a little weird... In warm months it's between 36 and 40mpg hwy... in colder months it's between 30 and 34mpg hwy. No change in driving style, just a drop due to climate change. I still feel that the mpg is outstanding.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
