    Sterring Is Not Driving Straight — My steering is not naturally drive forward but tries to steer right or left! It's as if I was a young kid with my mike handle bars turned around and it trying to turn the 180 degrees. It will not track straight. I love the MPG but I know a few others that have the same silly problem that may be dangerous if you just take you eye off the road for just a second.

    Pros: Great MPG

    Cons: Scarry to drive at 70 mph

    Great Mpg - Dangerous Power Steering — Steering Control system - I can't keep the car in my lane at Hwy speeds. Toyota checked my car and they find nothing wrong. I am worried I will have a crash but they say the feedback issue is normal for the Corolla 2009.

    Pros: Great MPG 35 mpg

    Cons: No clock in radio or dash like in the 2008 - The new EPS Power steering is like driving drunk

    My Amazing Sport Car — I love the style of my car. I park far away from other cars so im sure that i wont get any dents. I had my car for 5 months now and i still cant help looking at it. I love the inside of my car as well as the out. The black and blue interior is amazing. The only thing the sport needs is a moon/sun ruff. That always makes any car look much better. I only wish it had more horse power and that the shell of the car was made stronger. My back bumper is so weak. I hardly backed into a car and my car was the only one messed up. But i Still Love My Car!!!

    Pros: Its looks.

    Cons: How weak the shell is.

    Pros: great performance, economical car

    Cons: N.A

    2009 Toyota Corolla S — The '09 has better safety features then the '07, 6 air bags in front and rear. Anti lock breaks (all of the new corollas now require to have the anti lock breaks). Steering is nice and smooth. This car has more room then the '07 and is better in the comfort area. The build of this car is almost like the build of a Toyota Camery. I love how this car no longer has an antenna sticking up and how the mirrors fold in. I love how the seats have a unique sport fabric. These seats look so easy to clean up if you or your children were to make a mess. But what I really love about this car is that not only does it have that sporty look to it, but it is great on gas mileage and that is always a plus. Toyota cars have always been great and I would continally buy from the Toyota company.

    Pros: Safety, performance and gas mileage

    Cons: none

    2009 Toyota Corolla — Cost of ownership is excellent because it is very frugal with fuel. Toyota build quality is second to none. I live 8 hours from the nearest dealer and I am so sure that I will not have trouble that this fact is not a problem. The styling is rather coservative. the performance is not spectacular but is definitely sufficient. I would prefer a standard shift for the fun factor but my wife's arthritis prevents me from indulging this preference.

    Pros: Fuel economy. Reliability.

    Cons: Clock is in the instrument cluster in a multi-function display in front of the driver and has to be selected.

    A Car For The Accountants, Not For The Driving Enthusiast — The new 2009 Corolla is a car I just can't like. It to me is a symbol of all the things that are wrong with Toyota now. I gave it an average style rating because truthfully its just a downgraded Camry so its not pretty nor ugly, pretty boring actually. So why is the rating so low, is it the reliability? No since none of these have given me a problem. Fuel economy? Definitely not, its actually very good. Quality? Not exactly since the build quality on the cars at least coming from Cambridge is excellent. I must say though the quality of the plastics in this car are quite cheap, scratch easily and feel cheap despite being coloured nicely. Its actually how the car drives which really turned me off. The power on this car...slightly better than the 2003-2008 version but not noticeable. The handling...same problem as last time not too good and still has a lot of body roll. The worst thing from this car is...the electronic power steering. The system put into this 2009 Corolla is so overboosted, there is no feel to it. You cannot sense whether your going straight or drifting off into another lane. Buicks normally have this problem but even they have not designed a steering system so lifeless. This is definitely not a drivers car, it will never be fun. The problems from the last car still occur, only this time the car is far more boring to drive. This might be a great car for people who only think dollars when it comes to cars but I suggest a Yaris if your stick with Toyota. I love driving...but if all cars drove like this...I'd find my commutes the least fun part of my day instead of being the most fun.

    Pros: Still a pretty good A to B car, fuel efficient, interior styled nicely

    Cons: Low quality plastics, very bad electric power steering system, faults from previous Corolla still present

    Not Bad — The car is almost has high as a SUV, acceleration is pretty good for a Toyota, but the CD sometimes does not play some Discs, or the Discs get Jammed in the player,I do wish this problem can be taken care of. Apart from that it is a lovely car.

    Pros: Its Quiet

    Cons: the CD
