I'm the original poster for this review. It's now 2017 and I still have both of these Corollas. My wife drives hers 50 miles/day 5 days/week; it's about ready for new motor mounts, otherwise still in excellent condition.

My daughter drives hers daily, too. She parks in the AZ sun all the time and I had to put in a new headliner last fall, took me about 4 hours to do it... The paint is very faded, but I sanded and rattle-canned the flaking-off areas and it looks pretty good, too.

Both still running fine, no major repairs. Amazing cars.

I'd disagree with VW going downhill. Having experience with Rabbits from Westmoreland, I'd say it's business as usual with the VAG.

Wow I thought a new GT500 with close to 800 HP was pretty exciting and appealing. Ford car enthusiasts would agree.

We have a couple Ford Edges SEL AWD in our company with over 200,000 miles on them. Sure it's mostly highway, but haven't been stranded other than a dead battery. And not really that as I got a jump from someone with cables in a parking lot. And Ford's pickups are very good as well. We do keep logs and keep the fluids and filters changed and constantly checked. And not just let things go. New belts hoses etc. vs sit along a road wondering why they were not replaced when needed.

This is a review about a Toyota Corolla. Not a Ford Edge, a Ford pickup truck or even a Ford GT. If there are those whom desire to write their experiences about such vehicles, they should place them in the areas of the site for those models...

No 23:36 caused the following comments. You cannot criticize these other brands and then revert back to your perfect Toyota. Read 23:36 and see who stirred the pot please.

Am I missing something here or what? The original reviewer described his experience with a Toyota Camry. Then the very next response was something about VW's and Fords - neither having anything to do with the review...

Yes, you missed 23:36 entirely.

So in that case both of you guys are wrong. Keep your comments about cars to the cars in the review please...

Cars don't exist in a vacuum.

So what you are saying is that it's acceptable for a person to rave about a review car and then say an entire lineup of another brand is complete junk. Not just one model, but all. That inaccuracy is not expected to elicit any kind of retort? Kind of hard to stomach at times. I have a little more faith in actual owners' firsthand experiences vs one that has a beef over one model they once had. Some also complain heavily about a car they can't even afford, yet knock it anyway.

What's even better is if you actually owned an exact year and model to comment on it. Find its flaws and faults, not unrelated cars.
