Reliable and efficient Toyota.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My car is very reliable, easy on gas, drives easy, etc. However it has some issues with the startup as if I am overturning my key in the ignition when I start the cold engine. Mechanics cannot discover the issue and I have even recently replaced all of my ignition coils. It does not seem to affect anything seriously. . This car is comfortable, spacious, and all-in-all the best vehicle I have ever owned. The trunk space is invaluable. I can even move small pieces of furniture in this car. The speakers and sound system that come with the car is very impressive, including the bass. There's awesome space within the glove compartment and a separate storage compartment above that. There are two areas to plug in a car charger. There are 2 cupholders between the seats plus holders in each door and a separate fold down cup holder (2 spaces) for the back seat. The back seats also fold down to allow space for longer objects through the trunk. All-in-all this car is dependable, handles well, and was a great investment.

Great mid size car with little to no problems! Great on gas!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I haven't really had any real problems with my car. If you want to know what I've had to replace (which I don't consider a problem ) are my battery, oil change, wiper blades and tires. This Toyota handles great, when I go to pass another car it has plenty of pick up, no play in the wheels and great manoeuvrability in and out of traffic. I'm a single lady and not afraid of going long distances with my car, it has been very dependable. No worries! As for comfort it seems to be very comfortable for myself and apparently for people riding with me. They always want to take my car for long distances. They say there is more room and comfort. The best feature in my opinion are good pick up, power everything, cruise control so I don't get a ticket and safety features ( air bags front and sides.) The car is a mid size, it appears to have a little more weight behind it and is good on gas.

- Debra S

Simple, basic, safe, easier to drive vehicle.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I have not had any problems with the vehicle. It has almost 100,000 miles on it and I haven't had any major issues. It has been through several accidents as well as has held up. It was my first car, is paid off, and I still drive it. The only complaint is the brakes seem to be less responsive than that of other vehicles. I have had the brakes checked numerous times and am always told they look fine. When other people drive my car they comment on how you have to push the brake pedal much harder than on other vehicles to get the car to stop/slow down. This is a good, safe car for a first time driver. It is compact, so it was easier to learn how to drive in. No, it's not the fanciest car or has all the bells and whistles, but it will get you to where you need to go comfortably and reliably.

- Miranda B

Toyotas are the BEST and most reliable cars

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

The only problem I've had with my corolla was when a rock cracked the condenser and I had to get the AC replaced. Other than that she's been the perfect car. Very reliable. She's got 110,000 miles on her but runs smoothly and will last much longer because I take good care of her. She's a 2010, so definitely doesn't have things like Bluetooth or a rear view camera, but even without these I am very satisfied. She's got automatic windows, CD player, radio, automatic transmission, and adjustable drivers seat and steering wheel. She's originally bought in Idaho, but did poorly on ice. Now she lives in the desert and does great, the only complaint would be non-tinted windows in the summertime. I can always have those added I just haven't saved enough money for them.

- Jenny V

Great vehicle of its time, hold great with easy.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

There has not been any true problems. For the performance is really nice and easy to handle. The pick up and go is nice. The gas to the miles is great. For comfort its good for even long drives ( done about 4 hour drive one way) even comfort when laying down with both front seat and laying down in the back seat. The space in the car is very roomy, got to pack in a 49' TV in the back, the trunk of the car is very big and 'deep', when you need to lay something long ways the back seats fold down nice and low so stuff can slide right on in. For features are good for being a 2010 media controls on the steering wheel are really good and do not have to look to know what buttons to press.

Happy Toyota corolla owner.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

When I first purchased my car, it was brand new, and had many engine problems. Following a complete engine replacement, it has been very reliable. I have not had any engine troubles for over 5 years. The gas mileage is about 35 mpg, which I feel is excellent. It is a standard transmission, which I prefer, and I feel that it is an easy standard to use. The windows and locks are also manual, which can be annoying, but I am not concerned with mechanical failure do to lace of electric parts. The car is pretty spacious, it fits 2 car seats well in the back. The drive is smooth and quiet. I hope to keep this car for many more years. I even hope it will last to hand down to my children.

- Alyssa D

The brand always trusted and performed well and will do the same in the future

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

Saves a lot of gas, small size makes uncomfortable especially in the highway, not really comfortable comparing to SUV cars, on the other hand it is easy to park, fits small spaces which is easy to park, easy to clean inside and outside because of the small size, besides small size I think everything else is good like good performance, same like SUV cars, they take you everywhere you want to go, I am pretty happy buying a small car because I spend almost twice less gas than my Toyota Highlander. So overall pretty happy with the purchase of Toyota Corolla. I always have Toyota makes since I started driving. The brand is reliable, uses less gas than other brands.

A 2010 Toyota Corolla Review

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I've had my 2010 Toyota corolla for 6 years, I finally finished paying off the lease. Throughout these last six year, I haven't dealt with any major problems. It is a 4-door sedan with the 1.8L/4-speed Auto drivetrain. So far it has been extremely satisfactory. One of the greatest benefits of this car is how compact it is so it easy very easy to drive. It also has great gas mileage, as I'm able to drive a 3 hour drive and only waste half the tank. The only problems I've dealt with this car is that there has been 3 recalls so far with this car. Other than that it's a great economical car.

- Guadalupe R

Best car I've had so far. Second car I've owned.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My car is very reliable in a lot of ways such as good on gas, cheap parts in case of damage, never have any major problems. The front seat is very comfortable, however I feel bad for people that have to sit in the back it's kind of small. We are expecting and the car seat does not allow for the seats to be pushed back comfortably which is annoying. I love that I can buy standard accessories for my car and they fit such as seat covers. Even though my car is almost 10 years old it runs very well and my next car will very well likely be from Toyota because of the reliability of their cars.

- Mayberry L

Great car with great features!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My 2010 Toyota is incredible! I bought it used and had slight battery problems with it at the beginning But after replacing all is well. Gas mileage on the highway varies between 33-39 mph and takes $20-30 to fill up. Overall, it is a great daily driver that I intend to keep for a very long time. If I had to mention something that I didn't like about the vehicle, it would be the overall size and how it can be difficult for taller individuals to fit comfortably. The vehicle is also very light so at times it can feel like you're being blown off of the road.

- Kelly W

The Toyota Corolla is a compact, safe and reliable car

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My Toyota Corolla is very reliable and has held up so well within the last 9 years, even with having over 125,000 miles on it. I feel safe driving it, especially after having been rear ended a few years ago with no injury to myself or my passenger. Even though this car is a somewhat older model, I enjoy having the auxiliary cord to play music and cruise control. The seats are comfortable and it is roomy enough for four people to ride in without being too cramped. I recommend the Toyota Corolla to any looking for an affordable, safe and reliable car.

- Tracy D

Nothing but reliable: 2010 Toyota corolla.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My Toyota corolla from 2010 has been nothing but reliable to me for over 103,000 miles. There has only been one recall and it did not take the dealership too much time to fix. The dealership gives you a shuttle to go to wherever you need to go for the day so it is no big deal. Never has broke down, never has made me nervous for any reason. If you keep up with regular maintenance such as oil changes, tire rotations, and airing the tires up; this car will be nothing but good to you. No complaints from me.

- Tanner C

My Corolla has everything I need

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I love driving my Corolla. I've never had a problem with it. Of course, it helps that I have it serviced at the dealership. After 9 years, everything still works. The only thing I wish it had was a/c vents in the back for passengers comfort. Also, if there are a few people with long legs, it might be tough for them to be comfortable in the back and front all at the same time. This car is more suited for children sitting in the back. That's probably the only reason I'd buy a larger Corolla.

- Diane B

Toyotas are built to last!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I have had my Toyota for 5 years and there has been no major issues. If you keep up with proper maintenance it lasts a really long time and continues to run well. My sister has her Toyota for over 12 years and there has been no issues with her's either. One of the features that I like is that even for a 9 year old car I can still use my iPhone to play music with the AUX cord so I don't feel like I am missing out on any audio features newer cars may have.

- Kate C

Toyota Corolla Delivers Big Bang for Your Buck

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I bought my vehicle in 2012 from the Hertz rent-to-buy program. The vehicle was affordable and has been extremely reliable. The vehicle is nine years old and it's never needed any repairs outside of regular maintenance. The comfort of the vehicle is good; however, I wish the driver seat better accommodated my height. I'm 5'2 and feel like I'm straining my neck to look over the steering wheel. I purchased a seat cushion and this has provided some help.

- Amy M

Don't go to the dealership I went to for a car.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My car is used and first day got it home had to be jumped and then I had to fight them for new battery. Also didn't see if before buying did all finances and then they showed it to me. Just told about it and said was in getting cleaned and it wasn't cleaned I had to get mad and complain about it before they cleaned it. I am not happy with the customer service I got from them and will not buy another car from that place. Very unfriendly.

- Bonnie K

I brought it because it was ranked #1 when it came to safety

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I bought it second hand .I really do not know what to say I had no issue with the vehicle other than I had to take it to the shop for a minor problem which took them a couple of hours to fix but had to wait a few days for the part to come in other than that it runs great only would like to update it sometime in the future. if this is your first car I would advise you to go ahead . it's a great car for an first time driver.

- Gayle G

Toyota corolla going strong!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My 2010 Toyota corolla has held up really well over the years. I have driven it across the country. The only issue I have really had with it is the jack for the aux cable which stopped worked several years ago. It is expensive to fix so I have just gone without it but I really enjoy listening to music and often miss it. Other than that though it gets great gas mileage and has been a really reliable vehicle for me.

- Rebecca B

High quality car for college students!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This car is amazing!! It drives really smoothly and everything works. We have never had to replace any parts and the gas mileage is great. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a way to connect to Bluetooth, but that is just because of the age of the car. The car is spacious and can easily fit five people, I am currently a college student and me and my friends can fit comfortably in the car.

- Amber B

The car that just keeps going.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This car just keeps running. At 150,000 miles it keeps going. I have kept up on maintenance and haven't had any issues aside from general age related wear and tear. It is not the best in the snow, coming from an SUV, but it still gets around. Also the mileage is great per gallon, especially coming from an SUV. Overall it may be a no frills car, but it gets you where you need to go.

- Pete K

Slight issues with breaks and operation of the radio.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I bought my car as a used car. It runs pretty well, however I have issues with my car sometimes making sounds when I'm braking. Sometimes there is a grinding noise. I also feel like the breaks are not tight enough. Also, I sometimes have issues with the radio when I go to turn the channel, the radio will completely turn off. Those are the two main issues I have with the car.

- Tiara E

This car is an excellent car for a family.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This car is very smooth and perfect for a small family. This is very protective and easy to control especially in bad weather. There are airbags that surround the car all around in case of any accident. This car is a very good car for the economy and resourceful when it comes to money issues. The parts aren't as expensive compared to other cars and your family will love it.

- Janice G

120,000 Miles and Still Going

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I bought this car used in 2013. I haven't had any problems with it. I only have the oil changed on a regular basis and put tires on it. I've had some recalls completed on it last year.. This car is comfortable in driving and riding in it. There are power windows, heat and air conditioning, defrost, and window washer spray. The seats are cloth. The mileage is almost 120,000.

- Deborah S

Toyota Corolla a Quality Car at an Excellent Price

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I really love my Corolla. It has enough room to transport friends and their stuff, which is nice. I appreciate that the costs of upkeep aren't insane. It is a quality car for the price point. I have found the car to be extremely reliable and that over time (as the car has gotten older) the performance has stayed the same as long as regular maintenance is done.

- Page D

Ideal sized car for a city living girl!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I love my car! It is the perfect size for city living/parking. You get great gas mileage and it is be extremely reliable on multiple road trips (12 hour drives). Trunk space is decent and the back seat is comfortable as well for passengers. It is small enough to fit into compact parking spaces but big enough to fit all your shopping bags on a rainy day!

- Danielle C

Durability at its finest... Toyota Corolla to the rescue!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I really love my car! It fits my family of 5 fairly well and has awesome mileage. The price I paid for it was well worth it because it's outlasted other vehicles a lot longer than usual. It has been super reliable and easy to work on. The features on it are basic and not up to date on new models cars but it still is a high quality vehicles in my book.

- Kristen K

Toyota Corolla Safe and reliable, a great package

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This car is super safe. It does really well with gas. It does not have many fancy features but it is very reliable. The trunk is not super big and you don't have a ton of storage space. I have had some issues with the battery. I definitely recommend this car! If you want something safe and reliable this is your car

- Vanessa C

Reliable Corolla performs perfectly

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My car has been very reliable. The brakes seem like they may need to be replaced sometime soon, but the car is 9 years old. It does what I need to do, doesn't accelerate as quickly as more powerful cars I've had in the past, but that's not something I need. I feel comfortable in my car, and it has everything I need.

- Katrina R

Comfortable, economic and spacious.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

The car is very comfortable and has a lot of space. The trunk is very large too. I love the gas performance, I fill the tank only twice a month and I use my car a lot. If I damage any part of the car (which hasn't happened), I don't have to worry about it being difficult to find or that it would be very expensive.

- Laura C

It's a silver four door sedan

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This car rides smoothly, is very comfortable, and has a lot of leg space for a small car. It gets good gas mileage and I have never had engine troubles. I have gotten in a few minor crashes and it has held up great in all of them. Overall it's a very reliable car and I have never had any big problems with it

- Amy S

Do not settle for base model.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

There have been so many recalls and base model does not have cruise control. Great on gas but I've replaced 4 sets of both front and back breaks in 9 years and have gone thru 2 complete sets of tires. Very basic and not worth price. Many of repair costs were due to some recalls that is weren't addressed.

- Janet P

my vehicle is very compact and can fit any size.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

The battery sometimes shuts down. When I put the ac on it creates such a loud noise. When riding on a hill it tends to fall back quicker and also when u press the gas it tends to make this rough noise. The brakes are very sensitive. The speakers tend to have more sound in the back seats then the front.

- Rosie A

Reliability in one vehicle

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This car has been a great value. I have more than 100,000 miles on this car. I've only had to do regular maintenance (tires, oil, brakes, etc). It has been reliable and consistent. It is definitely not a fancy car with all the latest bells and whistles but if you need something reliable, this is it.

- Jamie P

Reliable and low maintenance

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This car has been extremely reliable, with only basic replacements (like tires) needed after 150000 miles. Acceleration to merge onto a highway can be a little sluggish, but otherwise drives well. No complaints about comfort or anything else really. For a base model car it has been all I could ask for.

- Tim G

Good vehicle, basic sedan , low gas mileage and cheap insurance

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

Very reliable car just a little too small when it comes to having two kids. It has lasted me a long time so I do feel like it's worth the payments every month, the other nice thing is the insurance is cheaper because it's a smaller car. So all in all other than its size it has served as a reliable car

- Shanna B

My Toyota is a practical car for me, with good gas mileage.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

This is my second Toyota. It is easy to handle, good size and very reliable. I don't do much long distance driving and it is easy to handle. I never have big repair issues, other than regular maintenance and this year I had to replace a starter motor, but it is a 2010. I would buy another.

- Martha G

Comfortable and reliable for long drives and trips.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

A small car for 5 people, very comfortable and reliable. Toyota is a well known make. We've had it for about 9 years and still working good. Very potent and easy to drive. We have drove from PA to FL several times and we've had good experiences. We try to keep it regularly well-maintained.

- Blanca F

Long haul, the 2010 corolla is a great choice.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My favorite thing about the Toyota corolla I own is the excellent gas mileage. 2010 Toyota corolla ride is a little bumpy, and road noise loud when on the highway. Mechanical issues are evident. I enjoy the sound system of the vehicle, but it definitely has a couple sensor issues.

- Erin W

Happy with Toyota corolla 2010.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

My corolla is extremely reliable and had not had any issues, major or minor. It is extremely comfortable even on long car rides and gets excellent gas mileage. Maintenance costs are also very manageable through the dealership. It is pretty good with carrying larger items as well.

- Allison C

It's a great and reliable car

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I've had a few brake problems (brake pads wearing down) and a cylinder that makes my gear shift move went out. It is very reliable and I drive with a baby in a car seats comfortably. My vehicle is fairly simple but I love that I can switch radio station on my steering wheel.

- Karla B

Great on gas. No major issues for an almost 10 yr old car. Very affordable

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I haven't had any major issues with this car. I runs smooth for an almost 10 yr old car. Only time I have to take it in is for the usual oil change and tire change when needed. I think it is a great car for someone starting out. The price was good and it is also good on gas.

- J W

Great mileage and smooth driving

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

Seats are pretty comfy but it can get a bit cramped in the back seat especially if the driver/passenger are reclined. Haven't had a whole lot of car issues mainly just oil change and brakes. One thing I have noticed is that the headlights/tail lights go out too quickly.

- Jasmin J

Reliable and Sturdy Vehicle

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

Very reliable vehicle. Haven't needed to have any parts on it replaced in the 9 years I've had it. It's also helps that it doesn't cost much to fill up the tank. It is also a compact car so it can fit nearly anywhere you need it to. By far the best car I have drove.

- Carolyn M

A good reliable and easy to maintain vehicle.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

Constantly needs oil changes more so than others. Comfortable. Has aux and CD player on base. Big backseat for kids. Family friendly. Gas is amazing for that vehicles. Maintenance is rather cheap. Body seems weak and easy to damage. Engine is pretty small and weak.

- Justin L

The car has a sunroof and spacious trunk

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

The car is overall good and has been kept up to management. No leaks and very light exterior and interior damage. Good on gas. The car is white and has black seats. Clean title and there has been no smoking in the car. Very reliable and it is really in good shape.

- Anna F

Easy to drive & park, fuel efficient, comfortable, iPhone accessory, reliable.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

Too small, interior plastic is falling apart, runs great, reliable, very fuel efficient, low maintenance, has lots of stickers on it, paid for, comfortable seats, easy to drive, great for parking, good sound system, aux cable port for apple music, a/c works great.

- Erik P

Toyota Corolla 2010 amazing

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

We love this car. It's the perfect size for a small family. The seats are comfortable. Although we bought this car as used, it has still proven to be reliable. We definitely would recommend this car to someone looking to purchase an affordable and reliable car.

- Jessica U

The 2010 Toyota corolla is a car we love to drive!

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

The airbags had to be replaced by the dealership due to a recall. Other than that, this car handles well, it gets very good gas mileage, and is reliable. Acceleration is great, making it a dream for merging onto freeways, and for lane changes. I love this car!

- Cora N

Reliable and affordable, best brand on the market.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

It is very reliable. Great gas mileage. Looks good. Roomy. Great pickup. Handles really well. It will last for at least 250 thousand miles. I have only needed to just due maintenance work on the car. I have had no major repairs required for my Toyota Corolla.

- William H

Gas mileage is really good. It lasts couple weeks with daily commuting and use.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

It is an older model so it has outdated air conditioning system and radio. Comfort is good but does not look luxurious. It is more of a practical car. It has really good gas mileage and fast acceleration. It drives fairly smooth but maintenance is expensive.

- Alex C

It get me from to where I need to go and back. Hasn't broke down on me

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

The performance is great. I've only had issue when I did not drive for sometime which is expected. Overall the cars comfortable for me it not a huge car but not small either. The features are basic. It's a 2010 car, it 9 years old. It's not like cars today.

- Olga T

It doesn't use a lot of gas which saves us money.

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

We have had it for a while and it has never given us problems. Just do the maintenance when supposed to and it should run great. It doesn't use a lot of gas so it is good for most long trips. The only thing we constantly fixed were the windshield wipers.

- Chris B

Compact car with great performance

2010 Toyota Corolla Base

I would have to say that my vehicle runs very well. It's easy to drive and I've never had a problem with it. It's reliable and the seats are comfortable. It's roomy on the inside with enough trunk space. I just wish it worked well in the snow conditions.

- Samantha L
