    Rola (tofa7a) — Performance: pretty decent acceleration, braking and handling. Your typical Japanese sedan Build Quality: fragile as paper, don't hit anything!! Appearance: Good looking Cost of ownership: Very economic and easy to maintain Fun Factor: Its tiptronic, and the automatic overdrive can be annoying

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Your excellent typical Japanese Sedan

    Cons: The Automatic overdrive is extremely annoying, also a bit bulky

    It Works For Now — it is a good car for driving around the city, and on trips. Great Gas mileage. It is a bit expensive thought. It would be better if it were a Manual, instead of a Atomatic. That part is a real bummer.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Save gas

    Cons: Money

    Long Term Cheap Mobility....go For This One — Great Car at its price. excellent engine, highly reliable, comfy for 4, looks ok, good resale value, don't expect much, just suffice your basic transportation needs... but pick up sucks...engine is noisy...road noise is terrible...bit unsteady at high speeds...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: engine, space, price, resale value

    Cons: noisy, bad pickup ...

    Cheap And Quiet. — performance isn't terrible seeing it's a complete nerd mobile. I have the 5 speed manual so it's a bit more fun to drive. It weighs 2600 pounds so it's light as a feather and fun to whip around turns. Build quality, well not bad. the AC broke already but it was covered under warranty. It's bland looking. There's a million of these on the road. It's cheap to run, cheap to maintain. 36mpg average. Fun factor...Eh, it's not meant to be fun to drive it's meant to be economical and it does that really well.

    Pros: Great gas mileage

    Cons: Everyone and their brother's got one.

    . — I like the interior gauges, and the quality of toyota parts, and the performance is alright, you get what you pay for. the cost of ownership is not much to maintain. no, the car is not fun to drive at all.

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: its not turbocharge

    The Toyota Corolla Not All Its Cracked Up To Be — Performance-acceleration (really jumpy, not good for stop and go traffic, uses a lot of gas to accelerate) braking (seems fine but also brand new so brakes are brand new) handling (okay but I owned a german car before so handling doesn't even compare) Build Quality-repairs (none just brought it in for the check up) squeaks/rattles (none that I notice) Appearance-interior (sleek but also kind of pointy and straight edges, seats are not that comfy and have limited mobility, back seats are squished, and air doesn't go to the back very well) exterior (My is the aqua green color I love the color choices and its a cute little car compared to the Honda civic counterpart) Cost Ownership (good gas mileage and maintenance you just have to bring it to the toyota dealership)

    Pros: color

    Cons: its not german engineering

    My Car: The '08 Toyota Corolla — very quiet. smooth handling / cornering. reliable and predictible. spacious. good visability. basic easy to use / view interior / dash controls. good gas mileage. takes almost everything you throw at it. more family oriented as opposed to sports car but definately decent.

    Pros: reliabilty, gas milage

    Cons: sportyness

    Excellent — Gets me from A to B. Quality is very good and fairly well priced. Overall fairly inexpensive to maintain and repair and parts are decently priced. Car is fun to drive other than its not a V12 sportscar. Excellent vehicle to travel in.

    Pros: Great fuel mileage.

    Cons: Not a 4 wheel drive mudding truck!

    Disappointing — The first thing I noticed was how little you get for your money when you buy a Corolla. On the test drive, the car was very noisy especially on the highway and the steering/handling was terrible. It's very unstable and in my opinion its unsafe. In addition to that the engine rattled somewhat like a diesel.

    Pros: Standard transmission is smooth and easy to use. It also gives you more power over the automatic. Roomy trunk and back seats fold down.

    Cons: Overpriced, no standard side/curtain airbags, no traction/stability control, noisy, unstable on corners and highway driving, AC isn't as cold as needed
