Had it for 2 years. Compare to the same year civic, civic is much better performer: transmision + handling is way better then toyota's. Well corolla is not a performer, but it gets you from point a to b.
Nice interior, enough space for a small car. Good build quality, reliability.
Handling is terrible, transmision quick , but jerky. CE version windshield wiper has only two speeds fast and very fast.. it's not even funny..
