I'm a Corolla-er for LIFE!!!

If anyone should write a review for this car, it's me. I started off with a '98 corolla. And I fell in love with it. The thing was A TANK. Unfortunately, a rare thing happened and a bolt got stuck in the engine. So I had to give her up. But that's what led me to purchase the 2010 Corolla. I drive more than anyone. I'm talking driving is not only a PART of my life... it's my passion. I racked on 220,000 kms in the 5 years I've had it.The car has been flawless. Other than general upkeep and maintenance... NOTHING has gone wrong with this car. I've literally only had the brakes replaced twice, and the sensor system fixed because all the dashboard warning lights came on. Turns out it was a sensor issue (after 3 years of intense driving). My friends are blown away by the amount I drive this car and it still runs like a gem. I don't even do regular oil changes.. I'll burn the oil low and top it up. I just took it in to get safetied and was told the only things that didnt pass were the front struts and the front brakes. So the brakes will be the 2nd time I've had to replace them. I love this car. I'd recommend it to anyone! It's great on gas, sexy exterior, comfy leather interior, love the interior storage compartments. The heated seats have been my favourite feature (and all my passengers favourite!). Literally the ONLY complaint I'd have about this car: the switch for the interior lights is a pain in the ass. And the headlights are TOO GOOD. I regularly get flashed by oncoming traffic signaling my high beams are on.. but they arent. I never have to use my high beams, because the regular lights are that good!!! I really do love this car. The only reason I am getting rid of it, is because of the high mileage I'm racking up on it. It currently has 300,000 kms and showing no signs of its end days.The exterior is in great shape and It sits out in the hot sun quite often, not to mention the winter elements Manitoba gets. No rust what so ever has started. I figure it makes sense to sell it now while I can to get a little money for it. And I am upgrading my ride... to a 2017 Corolla XSE!!! Corolla has been real good to me, and the reliability is like a rock. I'll be a Corolla owner for life! I should be a Corolla Spokesperson... cause NOBODY aimlessly drives for entertainment like I do, and Corolla has been there for me 100÷ with no hiccups! Keep it up Toyota!!!!

Toyota corolla reliable and dependable.

I have not experienced any problems with my car. It is very reliable, requires a few maintenance trips, the parts and fluids are affordable, the vehicle is spacious yet compact. Lol I have not experienced any problems with my car. It is very reliable, requires a few maintenance trips, the parts and fluids are affordable, the vehicle is spacious yet compact. . The engine size is not large, but it maintains significant power and accelerate so well. Many of the functions on the dashboard are within comfortable reach for my short arms. The trunk space is comfortable, and the back seats lay down for longer items to be stored easily. . I intend to purchase another Toyota in the future. I think I will choose another sedan. I may upgrade to an all wheel drive vehicle. I am very happy with my Toyota corolla.

I love my car and it is valuable to me.

My car is great on gas and mileage but lacks in style and comfort. The seats are very uncomfortable and hurt my back. Overtime it has worn on my back and I work doing construction so the seat does not help it just makes the pain worse. I love the gas mileage on the car though, it is simply fantastic. Depending on the price of gas occasionally 20$ worth of gas can last my car 4-7 days until empty. I love that my car was affordable and is convenient for me to get from work to school and home. Definitely a convenient and reliable car and a great help to my wallet on maintenance because the expenses are more consumer friendly. But as far as comfort and style the car lacks in that category.
