None it's new.
4 Years ago we test drove the new 03 Corolla's and loved them. Then we went out and got a brand new Cavalier. For 3 1/2 of those four years we regretted the decision. Well we just purchased an 06 Corolla CE with the SE II package which gives in addition to power locks and Air--A power moon-roof, and power windows and mags. It is metallic black and it has a manual shift. Sporty for a Corolla.
I am writing not because I have a big history with this car, but I am writing from the viewpoint of a recent purchaser.
I chose Toyota for the following reasons:
GM built a substandard automobile that I was unhappy with for 4 years. It was in the shop no less than 12 times in 20 months. At less than 80,000 km the dashboard literally shook going over bumps and the car creaked and rattled all the time. The seats put my legs to sleep.
GM was going to give me the world to get me back... I didn't want to get sucked in again.
In comparison to the Mazda 3 and Civic the Corolla lacked the pizazz, but seemed to be a better value. It offered more bang for the buck.
I am pleased with the purchase and hope I will enjoy many years of trouble free motoring and excellent resale.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
