Probably the most popular piece of junk!
It burns oil; 2 trips to dealer and still not fixed.
Few parts squeak in rear-right and somewhere under the dash.
Drive it for a few hours and experience pain in hands/shoulders; is it a car or a tractor? My dealer does not seem to see any issue with driving a tractor!
This car has never died on the road, and it may never do. However, what's the point of buying a new Corolla when it'll perform worse than a 10 year old Subaru in almost every aspect?!
It is anything but comfortable on longer drives (and I believed my Subaru was not good; now I know it was great!).
That poor '99 Subaru used to let less noise in the cabin on highway, and made almost the same amount of squeak noise! Instead of burning oil, it used to leak a few drops over the night, which I do not believe was worse. I cared less about it and I was happier with it... You are right; I was stupid to trade that much better car for this new piece of junk. I could spent my money much better :(
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
