It is a workhorse. That gets you point to point economically.

Great gas mileage, maintenance reasonable. I think the suspension could be better and the vehicle noise in the car cabin less for highway driving. Seats are not the most comfortable. But the ce is the base model. I have 75000 miles on the car and the paint on the top of the car is showing significant wear. I do live in the south and get direct sunlight and the car is not stored in a garage. It is also 13 years old. So some of this is simply age of the vehicle. This year my air conditioning has died on the car. Again, this is the most common repair on cars the age of mine as my mechanic tells me. My regular maintenance is tune ups, alignment and brake care. I know that I'll need to do the cv joints in the near future. Again, a function of age and mileage. I am a low mileage driver and newer cars are made to handle higher mileage per year. In general a very good car. Handles well, easy to drive. My complaints are not that the mechanics of the car do not work well. They'd be because I have the base model and I'd recommend you get the le version or another upgraded version to have better comfort seats, quieter car cabin.

It is extremely reliable!

I have owned my Toyota Corolla for some time now and I have to say it has been a dependable little car. As long as I have taken care of the basics, such as oil changes and tune ups my vehicle has never let me down. It is features are basic, regular am/FM stereo, power doors & locks, and air conditioning, but I am perfectly happy without my car being fancy! It has a nice smooth ride on the highway and is great on gas, something we all can agree on as a positive feature. I've owner both this Corolla and a Toyota Camry and I have found both to be dependable economical vehicles. I am a happy Toyota driver!

It is a car that will last you as long as you take care of it.

I have a problem with how easily the car paint has faded and chipped. I notice the same thing in all of the Toyota Corollas that I see, it is not just a problem with mine. I like that it has lasted thirteen years and does not show any signs of slowing down any time soon. I like the comfort of the seats, but the stereo area is outdated and when I bought a new system to install, I was told that I cannot even do that because of the way the car was put together, so I am very disappointed in that. Now I just feel like I am driving man old, faded, car with no way to listen to good new music.
