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

Great Looking Sedan Would Rate This Car A 9 Out Of 10 — The 2008 Toyota Corolla S is a very nice looking car it drives really good and accelerates well and the engine noise is okay and it's really quiet inside the car while it's idling, gets pretty noisy when accelerating on the highway and when it going at high speeds (50+mph) the only thing that bothers me is the noise it makes inside the cabin when driving on bumpy roads (maybe it's because the S model's interior is made with plastic and that's why it's so bad. my friend's '03 LE does not make any noises)

Pros: TOYOTA!, Gas Mileage, appearance

Cons: less HP than competors, XRS is gone

A Very Good Car — South African Corolla 1.6 (91kW) Advanced specification in Ice Blue. Car is only 2 months old. Nothing at all gone wrong so far. And nothing ever did in 3 years. Now sold in favour of a 2011 Corolla 2.0 Sprinter

Pros: Good equipment level, good value for money.

Cons: Nothing so far!
