The Reliability of a Toyota Corolla

2016 Toyota Corolla L

In my opinion, this car is very comfortable. It has plenty of room in the back seat, a decent size trunk, and is easy to drive. My favorite feature is the ability to have phone calls through the speaker and being able to talk on the phone while both of my hands are on the steering wheel to make it safe and legal. I also love to play music through Bluetooth rather than listening to the radio all the time. This car is also extremely reliable and will run forever. I have never had any issues or problems with this car. Since this car is made so well, it does not cost an arm and a leg to get tune ups or replace parts. This car is also compact enough to fit in smaller spaces. Along with everything, this car is decently priced for what you're getting.

Toyota Corolla is the most dependable, reliable and durable car on the road.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

This is my third Corolla and for good reason. In all the years I have owned Corollas, the only parts I have ever had to replace was the alternator once and the serpentine belt once. I tell others that my car fixes itself because it has! Little things here and there just go away on their own. I know, sounds silly, but it is by far the most dependable, durable and reliable car I have ever known. And the new generation of Corollas are beautiful, inside and out, and they drive incredibly smooth. I have the automatic transmission, the last one ever made in the 2016 L Corolla. All others will have the CVT transmission which I highly do not recommend.

- Jacqueline W

Toyota corolla are they way to go !

2016 Toyota Corolla L

My Toyota Corolla is the best ! It's a gas saver and it drives so smooth. Everything works great. The seats in the car are very comfy while you're going for a long drive the seats should not be a problem because they are very comfortable !! The radio is amazing It has many stations and you can even connect your device to it and play music off your phone. I've never had any problems besides the most common problems which are needing a new battery after a while and so and so. Anyways this cars is amazing and perfect for anyone and everyone!

- Lisa bel G

Maintains great shape, sleek design makes it believe its new and not old.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

The car itself is beautiful even though it's an old model but not old enough. It is convenient because it has Bluetooth and a rear view camera that lets you reverse properly. The car is incredibly spacious and sleek with the interior, since its all black leather and cloth mix. More on the Bluetooth feature that most cars have now that lets the driver go hands free since it is dangerous to have the phone on your hand. Overall, love the car and would recommend to anyone looking into the Toyota dealership.

- Ana S

Solid car that is bigger than you think.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

When I went in to look at vehicles, I remember telling the salesman that this had to be a Camry, not a corolla, as it was way bigger than I expected. Obviously, I was wrong. It is been a great car, with very minimal maintenance needs beyond oil change and tire rotation. The only real issue I have had is with the Bluetooth, which has decided to stop connecting to my phone for some reason. Outside of that, great gas mileage, comfort, and no mechanical issues in 2.5 years of ownership.

Sound System Galore: the Toyota Corolla

2016 Toyota Corolla L

The performance of my car is great'it rarely breaks down, it's reliable, it is a low-maintenance vehicle, and its features are endless (from a rear-view camera, to bluetooth radio, to USB outlets where I can charge my phone, to an advanced sound system, etc.). The gas/mileage, however, is not the best when it comes to hot weather. Using the air conditioning kills my car's gas tank and uses it up a ton. It does tend to collect dust easily so I have to get it washed every month.

- Lucy S

2016 Toyota corolla - your reliable best friend!

2016 Toyota Corolla L

My 2016 Toyota corolla is such an awesome vehicle. After a couple of years with a 60 mile total commute to/from work, I can say that this car has been reliable and comfortable to drive. I have also taken several road trips with this car including; la to Coachella, San Francisco, and Baja California with smooth performances every time. The eco feature gives great miles to the gallon ratio and this car feels spacious, (I am 6ft tall on a heavier side.).

- Roberto G

Base model Toyota Corolla

2016 Toyota Corolla L

The car did not come with a key fob, only a key. This makes it a little inconvenient when getting into the trunk or car. The car runs great. I did have an issue with the radio going to static every time the rear defrost is turned on. I feel much safer in this car than my last car. This is a base model, so I wasn't expecting any bells and whistles, but it does have the option to sync your phone so that you can make and receive hands free calls.

- Sarah Z

The phone call history and your favorite callers is also a big asset.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

The corolla is great to drive but I am not use to driving a four cylinder. It definitely lacks pickup. It is a very comfortable drive. The controls on the steering wheel are great! I especially like how it will read your text messages to you while you are driving. I also love that the car will not stop dinging if the front passenger does not have their seat belt on. This car is also great in snow!

- Wendy H

Ideal Car for New Drivers

2016 Toyota Corolla L

Toyota Corolla is reliable and safe. The way the vehicle drives offers a lot of comfort to the driver. The vehicles performance is always consistent which provides reassurance. The Bluetooth feature in the car is a great resource for anyone who is busy and needs to have a hands free life. I highly recommend this vehicle to new drivers and people who travel a lot for work.

- Elizabeth D

The green hulk Toyota corolla

2016 Toyota Corolla L

I love my Toyota Corolla! It runs very smoothly and never breaks down. The AC works so good and I feel nice and fresh during the hot summer. This car drives excellent. I have had this car for 9 months and have not had any issues at all. We rate this car performance 10/10. The interior inside is very nice as well and has been upgraded compared to the other Models

- Chloe U

my favorite part about my car is the mileage

2016 Toyota Corolla L

The car that I currently drive is new to me. I recently bought it off of my brother because I was looking to downsize and he wanted something bigger. I am a full time student and also work 35 hours a week. I love filling up my tank and it being super cheap, I love the amazing miles I get. I love how small the car looks but I never feel like I am crammed in it.

- Maris M

Reliable and Comfortable!

2016 Toyota Corolla L

My car is very reliable, I don't think I've ever had any issues on that front, which is especially helpful because the weather and road conditions can change so quickly. I took it on a 10 hour road trip to South Dakota with minimal stops and it did very well and was very comfortable, which is very difficult to accomplish sometimes on a trip that long.

- Dakota Z

Comfort at the forefront - cool, dependable, economical. Love the heated seats!

2016 Toyota Corolla L

Several friends and family members all love the Toyota brand. It is a reliable choice that you can trust to be dependable. And also affordable with good gas mileage. I love my corolla and find it very comfortable. Economically, performance-wise, with stellar features, Toyota is a super brand that I feel good about highly recommending.

- Jen R

Affordable fuel efficient car

2016 Toyota Corolla L

This car is very reliable as long as you keep the maintenance up to date. Haven't really had any problems as for as performance in any sector. Great on gas, recommend it for people that travel. So if you're on the road often with a vehicle this is a great affordable car for that. Good size trunk for luggage and decent room inside

- Survey Q

Great mileage on a comfortable car.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

This car gets REALLY good mileage. I drive about an hour each day (mix of highway and city) and get 35 MPG. I fill the tank at most once a week. The steering wheel feels very smooth and is overall very pleasing to drive. The audio bluetooth also works very well and often auto connects to my phone.

- Rodrigo R

Great commuter car, reliable with no problems!

2016 Toyota Corolla L

I have not had any problems with the car. The performance is great and still runs brand new, almost three years from purchasing it brand new. The car is very reliable, I have drove my car with distance. For example, Los Angeles to Vegas many times, from la to way up north. Love this car.

- Tamara L

Get a lot of standard equipment for your money.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

Compact, fuel efficient, reliable, decent car, extra safety features, upgraded upholstery. Interior is solidly built and has high quality material. Comfortable ride quality. Is high fuel economy. Pleasant ride on highway and in city. Infotainment interface has user- friendly control.

- Law T

Good, comfortable, dependable car.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

Dependable car and good reliability. Comfortable seats and interior, good leg room in the back. Has roof window. Touch-control pad for music, navigation, etc. Major annoying thing is that the car must be stopped in order to switch the Bluetooth device. Good, clear navigation system.

- Anna M

Highly recommended, reliable and good.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

Save gas. Comfort. Spacious. Extensive trunk area. Value for the money. No breakdowns. Low maintenance. Rides smooth, acceleration is wonderful. Efficient on gas, comfortable and easy to drive. The car has all of that, nice style too, inside and out. Highly recommended.

- Kimberly M

It is a 2016 Toyota corolla (manual transmission) black and grey-blue interior.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

I have had the car two and a half and have had no issues with her. Only scheduled maintenance. I had an older one that I had for 13 years before I had to change the catalytic converter. Very reliable car from a very reliable company. It is definitely a car worth every penny.

- Michael L

Roof racks are amazing and I love them very much

2016 Toyota Corolla L

Its reliable, and it gets good mileage, and it has a warranty, and it is very quiet. The car has very Good breaks, and an extremely sleek design. It came with Lots of airbags on all doors and in the front two seats. I really love it and it has roof racks that I bought it

Excellent gas mileage and handling and acceleration

2016 Toyota Corolla L

Good quality and gas mileage. Would like a bigger tank however. I have a white Toyota Corolla 2016. Has a smooth ride and handles well with good acceleration. I get 40 mpg highway. Does not require much maintenance and was bought new used but has held up very well

- Ben G

Toyota corolla is amazing.

2016 Toyota Corolla L

My Toyota is really great. It never gives any weird sounds and it is reliable. I have never had a bad experience from the car malfunctioning or leaving me dry somewhere. Just make sure you always do your oil changes and this car will not let you down. Guaranteed.
