Toyota Corolla is a good, reliable, safe car.

My car has been very reliable for the past 6 years that I have been driving it. As long as you keep up with the maintenance and give it regular oil changes, it will be on the road for many years. The only problem I have had with it on a semi-regular basis is with the emissions sensor which does not really affect the car's driving; and the muffler strap, which is not totally resistant to rust if you live in a place where they salt icy roads or live near the ocean. All in all, very comfortable car, suits my needs nicely, I just wish it had more trunk space every once in a while.

Toyota, 4 door, I have only had to put a starter on it that was the main upkeep. Then your basic oil change, tires, muffler replaced the last part of the muffler just your basic then we rotated tires greased everything. It rides real good. I have put one battery in it, the old one wouldn't hold a charge. It has your basic stuff in it nothing fancy in. Nice stereo in it. Basic speakers in the two in the front two in the doors and two in the back. Nothing extra fancy on the speakers your basic.

I had my car for 6 years. I have had a lot of mechanical issues such as the button to lift the hood and handle to open the driver's side door, break. My car leaks oil. I have to put oil in it at least once a week. The CD player no longer works. And the check engine light has been on for about two years even with me getting it inspected and the maintenance people "fixing" the issue. With all of that being said, my car is still getting me to and from where I need to be.
