Toyotas run forever! Just don't push it and you're on the road!

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

This is the first car I've ever bought on my own that did not come from my parents. Its small but big enough for me! Plus it's a four door! I love it and it's reliable. However, it is an older vehicle, not made for long distance traveling or heavy loads. It will drive slower on steep hills. But once you get it going, it's a smooth ride. If you keep up basic repairs then it runs smooth always. Its true when people say Toyotas will run forever! I know this because I do the bare min. As far as upkeep and it just keeps on going. I drive it pretty much daily and it gets me to and from without a hitch! I for sure would love an upgraded version of this exact same car!

It's a very slick looking car and I often get compliments that it looks new.

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I love my Toyota Corolla! However, it came out just before all the cars starting coming with cool features. It doesn't even have heated seats, let alone all the new screens cars have nowadays to help park and what not. Toyota is really good about recalls on the car though. There has been two times I received an email notifying me that I needed to have my car come in for a recall or update. I'll definitely be looking to buy another Toyota once this car no longer suits me. For now, however, it runs just fine.

- Mary R

All things considered, it is an awesome vehicle and I am super happy with it.

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I love my Toyota Corolla, it has held up very well in the 5 years that I have owned it. Besides basic upkeep, I have not had many problems with it at all. I have had to replace the alternator and the rotors and some other things that wear out with time and mileage but generally speaking, it has been a very reliable vehicle that has gotten me all of the places I need to go. It is pretty comfortable as well which is very beneficial on those long road trips. All in all, I am very happy with my vehicle.

- Dylan E

It is a great car and I love all the cute features.

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

My favorite car! It drives great. Really smooth. I love all the little places built in to put stuff like my sunglasses, chapstick, ect. It is really great on gas. The seats are very comfortable. I feel very safe driving this car. The size is perfect for me. It also has that aux option so I can hook my phone up to the radio to play music. I love this car!

- Kayla G

Run extremely well for being a 10 year old car. It's reliable gas wise.

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

Strong durability. The seats could be more comfortable. The airbag got recalled which was an inconvenience. Lots of issues with lights on the dashboard staying On even after fixing the problem. At times the vehicle computer system will dry on and won't allow me to lock my car. As soon as I push the lock button the car locks and unlocks instantly.

Review of Toyota Corolla 2009

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I have NEVER had any problems with my vehicle. It has over 140,000 miles on it and is still going strong! It is dependable and reliable. I feel very safe driving and allowing my teenagers to drive this car. Everything is still original as far as items under the hood. I have never had anything break or fall apart on the interior of the car.

- Ashley S

Go Toyota! You will go for a long time.

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

My Toyota is my buddy. It has pick up and go power that I need, traveling interstate hwys often. I love the power of my manual transmission and would probably be bored in an automatic. It has never let me down. With almost 130,000 miles, that is a pretty good testimony by itself. Wouldn't trade it in for a Cadillac.

- Deborah C

one of the best car that I ever bought so far.

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

as far as I am concerned my car don't have much problems since I bought it in 2009 aside from any recall parts. But all in all it's all good and I love it and I drive it anywhere here in the US and still in a very good condition. I love my Toyota Corolla and giving a chance I will still buy the same brand.

- Mira H

This is a great car if you have kids

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

Has bad air pressure in the tires even though they're new. Other than that it runs great, love how it rises, great on gas, small but roomy. Not many blind spots. Easy to use and comfortable for all. It's a good car if you have kids. I haven't had any major issues with it even though it's ten years old.

- Melanie G

Once upon a time, I bought a Toyota

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

Other than everyday wear and tear; as well as some recalls, I have never had issues. My first couple of cars were Chevrolet but this is my 3rd Toyota and I couldn't be happier. The comfort, easy maintenance and gas mileage make it worth the costs. I don't know that I will ever turn away from the brand

- Megan D

I hate American made cars. I am stylish and I like luxury!!

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I don't like American cars especially ford products. I prefer luxury brand cars. American made cars aren't stylish enough for me. Right now the brakes need to be changed. I haven't had any major problems out of my car which is a good thing. The next car I am going to purchase will be a Lexus.

Mechanical problems with low mileage

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I recently had a check engine light come on. Had to do with the ignition coil. They are telling me it's a known issue and want to charge some ridiculous amount, 1700 after they already charged 900 for spark plugs. I don't even have 100K, so dissatisfied and not sure I would buy Toyota again.

- Susan N

My car drives great and is low maintenance!

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

My Toyota corolla is a great basic car. It is easy to maintain and drive. It definitely needs snow tires because it is light, but the mileage is good. There's not a lot of fancy features but there's a radio and CD player and an auxiliary cord for playing music from a phone or other device.

- Evan K

Toyota Corolla 2009, the most efficient car I ever owned!

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I love my 2009 Toyota Corolla, it gets great mileage and is very reliable. Besides replacing tires and brakes I think I only put in about 2K in repairs over the last ten years. Can't beat that! My car has 120 thousand miles and I expect to drive it to at least 200 thousand miles.

- Natalia B

A Great Car for Anyone to Drive

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I've never had any major problems with my vehicle, the Toyota Corolla. The car is a 2009. I've had to replace the fuel pump once, and a few other small repairs have been needed over the past decade. As long as the oil and tires are maintained, it's a great vehicle to drive.

- Erin G

It is working really good and smooth.

2009 Toyota Corolla Base

I love my car it is really smooth and it does not waste much gas. I usually have to put once in 2-3 weeks. I bought it like 4 years ago and it is still works nice it was about $9000. It was expensive for a 2009 but it works good so I guess it was worth the price.

- priya K
