Spacious car perfect for any kind of driver.

2012 Toyota Corolla L

Very spacious 4-door vehicle. I love the comfort that comes with it while driving. I do recommend buying seat covers right off the bat because the interior seats are fabric. Would have loved a rear end camera to help with them tight spots however cars tear isn't the newest so I wouldn't have expected that much. Very sturdy drive as shape of car isn't really tall. Making it good for a learning car.

Reliable, comfortable, smooth ride

2012 Toyota Corolla L

I purchased this car brand new, mostly use it for city driving but regularly travel 1-2 hours. Extremely reliable and no major issues in the 7 years of ownership. Extremely comfortable seats and doors are very roomy for getting large items in and out of the vehicle. Drives smoothly, not overly noisy either. I've loved having my corolla it's great on gas and I found handles well in snow.

This is a great car for daily use.

2012 Toyota Corolla L

This is a very reliable vehicle for long term use. It requires little maintenance. I have never had any issues with the engine at all. It has excellent safety features. There are a number of nice comfort features as well, including Bluetooth and a GPS system. Only issue I have had is a broken trunk release cable. Would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking to buy.

- Gregory A

Reliable and good on gas.

2012 Toyota Corolla L

This car has been very reliable and performs well. It's the perfect size for my needs. Only problem I've come across so far was the passenger airbag inflator recall and a rattling noise under the hood while the car idled and while accelerating. My local Toyota dealer was very helpful and they fixed the issues and gave excellent customer service.

- Michelle S

Reliable but not desirable interior

2012 Toyota Corolla L

Engine is not powerful but it's a practical car. HATE the cloth of the interior though. It's a terrible fabric that everything gets stuck to. It takes awhile for rev up and get going but other than that, this car is good for basic necessities and getting around. Overall I feel like it's reliable.

My Trusty Toyota Reliable for wherever life leads me

2012 Toyota Corolla L

I love this car! I have had no major issues with it in my 7 years of driving it. I do remember having an oil leak on it when I first bought it, but the warranty covered the cost for fixing it. Since then, it has been reliable and consistent. I love Toyota and very much trust this company.

- Laura U

Amazing and reliable, If you want a car that will last long!

2012 Toyota Corolla L

I absolutely love my car it has five seats is economy friendly and I only pay $30 every time to fill it up. The body isn't as strong as I would like it to be it seems more like plastic. The paint has chipped a little but all in all I love my car and I know it will last more than 200,000 miles

- Sarah N

I characterize my car as a marshmallow, a bucket, and a lemon.

2012 Toyota Corolla L

It's a cool car however it does take a lot of maintenance since it's an older vehicle. The reliability of the car is definitely questionable, but when it's cooperating, it runs nicely. The comfortability of the car is decent, but overall it is very outdated from today's vehicle interiors.

- Miles T

Reliable and practical. Does the job!

2012 Toyota Corolla L

I have had the vehicle for over five years now and I have rarely had any problems with it. Just routinely getting my oil and tires changes. I really like it overall. The only complaint I have is the car is very light and cannot drive it snow and is often hard to drive is strong wind.

- Charlotte O

Good and reliable for first time buyers.

2012 Toyota Corolla L

It is a nice and reliable car for a first time buyer. It is small and affordable. It is a gas saver, but it does not go very fast. It goes up to 180. It is good on mileage and gas. It has four doors and good working ac. It is not a car for a lot of people but it is a nice size.

- Breanna H

This is an extremely sturdy vehicle that holds approximately five people.

2012 Toyota Corolla L

This is a fairly sturdy car. I have not had any issues with it, even after two accidents. The features include Bluetooth, a camera to see behind the vehicle and comfortable upholstery. I love this car and if I had the opportunity to do it over again I would still get this car.

- Alex D

Best performance car For your money. It looks great rides great.

2012 Toyota Corolla L

The car is very reliable and I never have any problems with it. The overall value and performance far superseded by expectations. I enjoyed the car very much and recommend a Corolla to anyone who is looking for something that's dependable reliable comfortable and looks great.

Toyota Crayola bought it at the dealership

2012 Toyota Corolla L

Its comfortable I need to change the breaks renew my plates for my car have it checked over to be on the safe side. Seatbelts are good there's a radio it's grey fits 5 to 6 people, speakers are good no Bluetooth but there's a built in aux cord there is a ash tray with it

- Jessica W

Great little car that is easy to use

2012 Toyota Corolla L

Very reliable, easy to park, love the manual controls-sounds silly but way easier to use than electronic controls, light gray cloth interior bad for pet hair, gets great gas mileage, wish it had automatic headlights-annoying to have to turn lights on and off

- Tanya H

It is black and has a great stereo

2012 Toyota Corolla L

This car is extremely reliable with great gas mileage. It is 6 years old and runs like brand new after a few trips to the car Dr. I drive daily and experience no issues with this vehicle. The car is very comfortable with Bluetooth radio and fabric seats.
