Amazing First Car. — I love this car. It is everything a car should be; smooth, nimble, roomy, has amazing speakers, reliable, easy to drive, unmatched viability, quick, fun, safe, looks great, and a fantastic daily driver. Needless to say, this is a great car to learn to drive in, and great to have a first car, or a regular car. It has very nice acceleration for a V4, and looks good on the outside. It never requires maintenance and will run forever. Brakes are above average and are tight with great stopping power. The only slight complaint I have with this vehicle is the noise for the engine that you can hear on the interior. It is kind of noisy, but still, not enough to make me annoyed or upset whatsoever.

Cons

Not enough horses

My Corolla — Solid build, great gas mileage, cheap to maintain, very comfortable on long drives, lots of trunk space. Not enough horsepower then again what do you expect from a corolla ;) With manual transmission and only one passenger car can accelerate ok. Very practical car.

Great Value For The Money. — I love everything about this car. It runs like a charm. It has a great heater and air conditioner and the seats are comfortable. Reliability and Toyota reputation makes this car the best value on the road. 90% of Corollas built since 1990 are still running.

Great Daily Driver — I have enjoyed owning this car. It's been dependable, relatively cheap to maintain, and it still looks nice after a decade. The Corolla is easy to drive, it can be counted on to haul your groceries, make your commute comfy, and hold onto solid resale value. It will not, however, ignite your soul, turn heads, or blaze off toward the sunset as an awesome guitar solo wails like in the movies.

MPG, small size helps with city parking.

Cons

Feels like a bad FWD go-kart. Get a 3.

Econobox, Pure And Simple. — It sounds like a motorcycle, and the ABS is terrible - the brakes locked on me on 3 separate occasions. It's a wonder I never wrecked this car. The car's built solid otherwise, which is what you expect from a Toyota.

The Quintessence Of The Practical Everyday/all Year Round Stop-and-go Traffic Eater — Corolla keeps being the quintessence of the everlasting, trouble-free, almost maintenance-free always-enduring passenger vehicle. It's practical, economical and dependable. It's also boring and monotonous to drive, even though the 1.8 liter 130hp engine it equips makes sort of a bid for "some" driving excitement or at least, for prevent me from falling asleep while driving. Acceleration is pretty good, whle cornering and handling are average in the best of cases. Interior space is just enough -rear passengers won't complain- trunk capacity is average and materials & building quality is above average, but not expect european-level finish. Overall, this car does exceptionally well the job that has build Toyota's reputation for bullet-proof reliability over the years: every time i turn the ignition on, it works. Always. No complains.

My Corolla S Is Awesome! — I love the looks, the gas mileage, the reliability, how comfortable it is to drive. You cant beat the gas mileage and how well it drives for being a 4 cylinder car. I am always comfortable taking my children in my car because it feels safe and is easily accessible.

Excellent Value For Money — I bought this 6 years back and have absolutely no issues... I have done minimal maintenance and the car still looks almost as good as new. My kids love the car and my wife loves the ease of manouverability. Best 1st car to have.
