My 2018 Toyota Corolla is the best vehicle I have ever owned!

2018 Toyota Corolla

I love all the automated features. The lane assist works great when you have grandchildren in the back causing a distraction. On the highway the cruise control is automated so I no longer have to tap the breaks, then speed back up and reset my speed because the sensors allow the car to do it for me when I approach vehicles at a lower rate of speed so when I pass them and there is open road in front again it returns to my set speed all on its own! I love having the climate control as well. I never have to freeze or be too hot again on a road trip! It is roomy and very comfortable. It also has very high safety ratings in all its classes which is extremely important to me. It also automatically senses and switches the transmission to drive in eco or sport mode so I don't have to remember to anymore. I also like that you now have a my Toyota account which keeps a connection to my service team and monitors the health of my vehicle. The backup camera has a great picture which I can change the quality if I choose. It also has a great sound system. I like that although the system allows messages and email, it only allows certain functions to be performed while the car is in motion which is a great safety feature that allows me to stay as connected as I want. Another great safety feature is being able to use auto settings on the running and headlamps so I never worry about forgetting to turn them on or off which is comforting at night when I am alone. I can lock it up and walk to my door and it gives me light to walk up, unlock my house door and get inside safely before the lights ever turn off! The best part though is that it is a Toyota! And as a Toyota it is less expensive to purchase and maintain and holds its value very well when maintained properly. All in all, it is an awesome car!!

2018 Toyota Corolla accident prevention technology.

2018 Toyota Corolla

I bought a 2018 Toyota Corolla and what's cool about the new cars is that they have a lot of technological functions that prevent accidents. For example, when I am driving in a lane and my car swerves a little a light will come on and my steering wheel will turn slightly. These newer cars help you drive more cautiously. The interior is extremely comfortable and high quality. It is spacious in the back seats with plenty of legroom. The windows are tinted and there's access to all windows and doors per one switch. When you are backing up, there is a little camera in the front of your vehicle where you can see behind you. So you do not need to always turn your head when you are about to back up; those it is probably safer to do so. As you backup, the car beeps and let's you know your proximity to a vehicle behind you, or a sign, curb etc. One problem with the car, is that since it is a limited series kind of car, certain car parts are hard to purchase unless I go to the dealership itself. If you have like a regular 2004 Toyota you can find standard brake lights and a new engine, but for this car specifically, you need a newer engine model that most dealerships do not have. To end on a high note, the performance is really smooth ensuring a safe and relaxing ride. The pedals are sensitive and move quickly even with a tap of your foot so be careful. All in all, these newer cars are amazing and are the future.

Review of the Savvy 2018 Corolla SE

2018 Toyota Corolla XSE

My Corolla SE is a really solid car, looks sporty and is very reliable. I bought it used at the local dealership which saved me from losing several thousand dollars in new car cost. I'm a Toyota fan from my college days because the company just makes solid vehicles all the way around and they rarely cost owners much money in maintenance until their older years. Even then, ownership cost is below many other car manufacturers cost. The Corolla I own is a 2018 SE and it is great on gas mileage, averaging 40 miles per gallon city. The slate blue color is a nice option for guys but my wife likes to drive the car as well although she prefers her Sienna! The leather seating was upgraded that year and is a very soft, smooth leather that is extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend giving the Corolla SE a test run if you are in the market for a sporty, reliable car you want to hang onto for a few years or even pass down to your high school kid who may start college in a few years. That way, you get to drive it a few years and have fun and it will still be in great driving shape for them when they need it.
