This Will Get You There, It'll Just Put You To Sleep On The Way. — Doesn't look like anything, doesn't perform like anything, but I put 160,000 miles on it in 6 years and never had to do more than oil and brakes. That's impressive reliability! It has no fun factor, and the back seat is abysmally small, but it's a commuter car, and in that regard it excels.

Pros

Solid reliable transport with a bit of go when pushed

Cons

It needed suspension work to get it through the MOT after 4 years so binned it!

25

Corrolla Power — It handled well but had a bit of body roll, the acceleration was brisk, 0-60 in under 10 secs. Nothing went wrong in my 3-4 years I had it. Solid reliable transport with a bit of Zip if you pushed it!

Very reliable

Cons

Loose-feeling steering

My Aunt's Toyota — My aunt's car. It's a fine car - my only quibble is that the steering and pedals don't give you a whole lot of feedback. There's also no cruise control, but this is admittedly not much of an issue on the PEI roads where this car is driven. Strengths include an excellent factory stereo with an analogue volume control (so that there are theoretically infinite volume settings instead of set levels that are sometimes too far apart).

My Ride — Acceleration nice breaks make a very fun sound when applied. Solid body but colour wears out quickly. Interiors,exteriors are terrible, alot of dust due to off road driving. Gas consumption excellent and maintenace costs low. Manual, i love it.

Did a Corolla just over take you?  Yes it did.

Cons

reliable = dull

Some Cars Just Don't Fit. — This is a very reliable car, it is hard to find another car as reliable as a Corolla. Usually when you think four door sedan, you think of three speeds slow slower and stop. Not so much with this car, in fact it is quite possible to leave that pack and go lone wolf. Which is where you will spend most of your time. There is no spark to this car and is straight out average.

Great Commuter Car — Owned this car for 10 years and nothing has broken. Performs well for a 10 yr old car. I plan to drive it another 5 to 10 years with basic maintenance. Very reliable car. I have heard from other reviewers that the paint is not that great. I would say not so much, my paint is still in very good condition.

Inferior To Previous Corolla By DavidH25
