It's been almost 1 year since purchasing my '01 LE - what a wonderful little car - there have been no rattles, squeaks or any other unwanted noises, and no recalls! the gas mileage is great, I get between 31-33 MPG in the city with the 4 speed auto, the ride is smooth and quiet - everything works great - the car starts the first time every time and I have no regrets about chosing the Corolla over the Focus, Civic, Sentra, Beetle and Protege - which are the other cars I had looked at.
outside temp gauge, interior design
more room in backseat - which isn't a problem for me since I rarely have backseat passengers
