I am amazed that I still have the original muffler and pipes on this car! I have it serviced regularly and never had any "surprise" problems with it. It's got over 90,000 miles, is fuel efficient and I love it because it's dependable, not because it's "fun to drive". Maybe I'll upgrade to the Camry next time but I'm sure happy with my Corolla!
Smooth drive, holds the road, heats up fast in winter and cools fast in summer.
I find it inconvenient that this model has no trunk release lever from the inside of the car.
