2006 Toyota Corolla: a very reliable car.

2006 Toyota Corolla

The car has only ever had a few problems since it was bought. It is battery has gone out and needed replacement, however some of that can partly be blamed on using cheap batteries as replacements once the original was dead. The only other issue I have ever had is a pinhole in one of the pipes. It does not affect the car's performance in any way but it does create an odd sound when the car accelerates. Everything else about it is fantastic. It can get up to some nice speeds and it controls very nicely. If you do not like a car with tight control, a Corolla may not be for you. It responds to even the slightest turn of the wheel but, personally, I enjoy that. Gas tends to be pretty cheap too. The interior is very nice. The only issue is that there is a tiny compartment next to the steering wheel which, at some point, came loose and would just fall open at random times while I was driving. It was nothing a little strip of Velcro couldn't fix, though. The seats are not leather, but that is good for me since I usually park outside my garage and the interior is black which is already pulling in a lot of heat. Not having leather seats means I do not get burned each time I get in the car. All in all, its a good car. I love it.

Reliable, high quality car for less

2006 Toyota Corolla S

My commute is less than 10 minutes so I don't have far to drive, but this car has been One of the best purchases I've made in my life. It's well built, good in the snow (surprisingly), and I've had to make relatively few repairs despite its age. It's a 2006, so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of new cars, but it's very comfortable, the interior still looks great due to quality upholstery and it's still fun to drive. The paint is chipping in spots, but I plan on getting touch up paint to protect it from further damage. One issue I did have was that the seal on the windshield hasn't been perfect. In the winter I get some frost on the *inside*. Nothing a quick warm up can't fix. Overall, it's been a great car for me. It runs smoothly and has been extremely reliable when I take it on long trips. There's hardly anything wrong with it, which I think is great for such an old car'it really speaks to the quality that Toyota puts into their cars.

The true overall daily driver.

2006 Toyota Corolla

The Toyota Corolla really is a durable, and reliable car that is going to last. It has more than enough room, the extras in the car are not overwhelming, but they're more than enough to make you comfortable on a seven plus hour drive. I have used mine working construction on some horrible terrain, through some pretty deep mud (they four wheel, to a limited degree!) And the car has held up incredibly well for the abuse it is been put through. I have noticed from two different Corollas now that they definitely need good tires when it gets wet out, or a body kit of some sort to handle the wind better. Overall, I could see myself buying another Corolla whenever this one calls it quits. The other Corolla was owned by my mother and is continuing service for my cousin, both of them still running very well at 12 years old ~30 miles to the gallon, no issues out of the engines or transmission whatsoever at this time.
