Toyota; I want my Sonata back
The car does not start almost 20% of the time.
Already 4 trips to the dealer (2 of them), and each time they mention a new reason for, and fix it (!), and it's the same story the next day.
Brake pads replaced at 15000Km :(
The automatic transmission is anything but smooth; specially between 1 & 2. The dealer finds it normal though!
I should damn my stupidity of buying a Corolla. Believe me or not (if you have also heard all those myths about quality of Toyotas), I have had Chevrolet, Chryslers (2), Volvo, Buick and Hyundai before this, and none of them have given that much trouble as this small Japanese junk has given in only 10 months!
You hear noise from every piece of the car (including the horn; thanks Toyota!).
The material is cheapest I have seen (well, after a Saturn I tried once). It looks more like a chinese toy than a well-known real automobile!
I will replace this junk before the winter arrives, as the handling is horrible, specially on the snow and rain.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
