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

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

Toyota Corolla — Very good made car.Good engine and gear box works like orhiestra. Acceleration is good (less than 10 sec to 100km/h) Brakes are good and road of brake is short. Materials inside are good quality what makes car silence inside and good car audio system. I admire to drive this car.

Pros: Good engine and gearbox

Cons: Front wheels drive

An Above Average Corolla —

The Toyota Corolla is normally billed as the most boring car you could buy. In some ways that is true, its never been an outstanding car and whatever it does well will be defeated next year since it only does well in categories like fuel economy, reliability, etc. Now this version of the Corolla, the 2003-2008 version, has been largely ignored by most auto enthusiasts. I don't feel that this particular car is deserving of the most boring title, I believe that's better suited to the Corolla that replaced this one. To drive, this Corolla made do with only 128 hp so it wasn't exactly that fast. Handling...it wasn't too good since the Corolla had quite a lot of body roll due to its soft suspension. However this Corolla does have proper steering feel something Toyota has not done well with lately especially with the new one. There are moments where you could have some mild fun, although the XRS is the one to get if this is your thing. The interior in this car is nicely coloured and styled modestly. The plastics on this car range from quite cheap to decent, I don't think they're as bad as certain cars. Although the lack of much metal is one thing this Corolla doesn't address. Build quality from Cambridge Ontario has been very good. Despite seeing several trashed Corollas with 60,000 kms, none have fallen apart or lost any pieces. I actually consider this car a better car than the one that replaces it. Its a shame this version has to live with the most boring exterior designs in the auto industry.

Pros: Build very well, good steering feel, solid A to B car

Cons: Boring styling, some cheap plastics, body roll is bad, thus handling suffers

Awesome Ride — This car saves you $$$ on gas. I am a student and I drive a lot and this car is perfect. Performance wise this car is moderate not really a speed machine and not really school bus slow. The car looks great and feels great. If you buys this car from the dealer buy it with the sunroof worth the extra money.

Pros: Gas, Appearance, Reliability

Cons: Can get crowded with alot of people
