One door panel came loose.
Radio volume control works on its own call.
The paint on the spoiler came off (dark gray paint).
I go through batteries like no tomorrow- 6 in 14,000 miles!
The steering wheel is too close to the driver.
Leg room is below average in all seats.
The cabin is noisy.
The transmission is creamy smooth.
The seats are contoured well and very comfortable.
The headlights are weak.
Absolutely horrendous in the snow and rain.
Acceleration is barely adequate.
The brakes are good.
Rear vision is good.
The doors close with a guillotine thunk- a sign of quality on the doors.
Defrost is decent. It was better than my last car.
Rear-seat headrests are a nice touch.
I get 25 MPG city and 32 MPG highway. Pretty bad for a car of this caliber. My last car (although with a manual transmission) was more like 30/45.
The paint must be rustproof. There is no rust yet (in PA).
It just wasn't what I was expecting. I probably won't purchase another Corolla, but maybe another model.
