This is my second Corolla and it is a great every day vehicle. The only 2 times this car did not start was dead battery and when dealership overfilled it with oil. From handling and power point of view this car performs fairly well - it is easily controllable and very predictable. I found the car to be very comfortable for long rides as well, even at higher speeds the engine noise is manageable and the mileage is great.
Interior material quality (other than black seat fabric that fades), s-model steering wheel and gauges, outside air temperature gauge, Odometer A & B in addition to the main, smooth ride
I hope that current models address quality of the black fabric, material at interior door seals which peels a layer, higher power option (like civic Si), sexy hatchback option, and cleaner styling with no unnecessary bumps and curves.
