My gripes with my 2002 Toyota Corolla
is the seats, road noise and the cup
holders. Seats: on long trips my back
gets to hurting. Noise: I previously
owned a Honda Accord and the quiet
interior is something I miss. Freeway
driving with the Corolla is quite noisy.
The cup holders sit right in front of
the stereo. If you have 16 oz. bottle
of soda, you have to nudge it aside to
adjust the stereo. I think they fixed
this on the 2003 Corolla.
Otherwise, this is a great little car.
It's peppy, gets 35-40 MPG, and hasn't
had any mechanical problems.
