    Nice Car — I love my car, great on gas! Maintenance is very low. Performance is pretty good. This car is really fun to drive. Very quiet ride, love the styling. Very sporty, love the 6 disk changer, stereo system is pretty good. High resale value is great to. I would recommend it to anyone!

    Pros: pretty quick once u get it going. Brakes on a dime if 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

    Fuel Economy — I love this car!! I even got 45 miles to the gallon once. The color is great and the wood grain is soothing. I've taken it camping, and even I can carry all I need.

    Pros: Fuel Economy

    Cons: Light - Blown in the wind

    Toyota Corolla — That it is very powerfull with the new 1600 C.C. motor with 142 H.P. but i dislike the shift transmition because the gear box is only five speed which is not compatible with the motor power, so the gear box need to be six speed.

    Pros: Powerfull and stable

    Cons: Gear box needs upgrade

    Good City Commuter, Not Very Sporty — After having driven the Corolla all the way to the north coast about 250 KM from my place, I can say it's good enough, not my cup of tea though; VERY good city cruiser, especially in our lovely Egyptian roads, if you're looking for more comfort its a good choice. If you're sports cars oriented (like me :D) you wont be able to live with it for long, you'd better look somewhere else.

    Pros: + Its smooth, very smooth and quiet, in fact most of the time I cant tell whether the engine is running or not, luckily the LED on the start button gives indication :D

    + The keyless entry option is very nice, its there on other cars, but as part of the package of the corolla, it gives a nice addition.

    + It feels well refined overall.

    + The 2 tone interior (sand beige and black) looks very good, the in dash 6 mp3 changer is very good, also the controls of the MF steering wheel are well placed and intuitive, more intuitive than Porsche actually.

    + The one I drove had the manual tranny, it's very good and smooth.

    +The suspension soaks up the bumps, potholes and all the irregularities on the road well, without sacrificing high speed stability, I think its a good compromise between stiffness and softness.

    + Dunno whether standard on all models or an option, but the auto dimming interior mirror is very useful.

    + The auto climate control is good, with its controls well laid out.

    + Has a trip computer.

    + The dash is well laid out too.


    + Good brakes, the ABS threshold is good too.

    Cons: - Doesnt give good steering or shifting feedback, you really need to keep an eye on the RPM or you'll miss your shifts.

    - The steering seems like its more comfort oriented than sporty, its not as sharp as the C4's steering nor handles as good, also as stated in the previous point, lacks good feedback.

    - Only the driver's window has a one-touch operation, all other 3 dont, really annoying.

    - Cant shut the windows from outside, also annoying.

    - The side mirrors do not dim with the interior one, and they are large and badly designed IMHO.

    - Not as much fun as the C4.

    - Not very roomy inside, our 2005 Hyundai Elantra is much roomier.

    2008 Toyota Corolla S — IT's an ok car, reliable, but im paying too much for it. The rear window seal is coming out already which is weird, tiniting it made a huge difference but has nothing to do with the seal problem.

    Pros: Good mpg, alround car

    Cons: no performance
