2010 Toyota Corolla XLE 1.8 from Mexico
Terrible transmission and terrible engine
At 142,000 km the transmission was damaged and I had to change it completely.
At 173,000 km a connecting rod of the engine broke and damaged a piston and monoblock. I had to change the engine completely.
It is the most prestigious car in the world, but it has been one of my worst cars. Now it's only half a car.
The performance of the car is bad.
There are no lights on the board and I added a high flow air filter to increase the response.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

A Toyota Corolla is "the most prestigious car in the world"?
Horrifying news to Rolls, Bugatti and Maybach owners everywhere... ;)

I think the original reviewer meant "most reliable" car in the world. Which the Corolla was at one point in the late 90s voted by many motoring magazines. I don't know if it still holds that title today.

Started skating and hitting the change from 3rd to 4th.
When I took it to my friend's workshop, some plates had a lot of wear; did not come in the repair kit.
It was cheaper to make the complete change than to do the repair.

I clarified that my comment is about the sedan.
Bugatti and Roll Royce are now sedans?

That’s subjective to the actual owner really. The review car obviously was held in high regard by its owner. My first used car was bought a year before I even had a driver's license. Even my parents didn’t even know about that buy til they got home. My dad wasn’t real happy on seeing it at first, but said I negotiated it well. At that time (age 15), to me it held that very title. 1950 Plymouth tagged and running price, $50.00, purchased in 1968. So a 50 for 50. Waxed it, detailed and cherished it. Sold in 1972 for $300.00 to my high school teacher. That was my prestigious Rolls Royce in my mind at the time. In reality though you are right.

A 2018 Rolls Royce (sedan) will run around $420,000 base profs before taxes. I would rather have a convertible version however.

No, not anymore, Toyota quality started to slip in the late nineties.
