I purchased this vehicle one year used with 30,000 miles on it. At first, I enjoyed the vehicle but after the brakes went out, the transmission went out at 70,000 miles, and the interior began to peel away, I decided that the vehicle did not meet my expectations. Despite following all suggested maintenance, the vehicle continued to have serious mechanical failures. The day that the brakes went out frightened me pretty badly. Based on my experience, I don't plan on owning another Corolla.
5 speed manual transmission, moonroof, quick acceleration in 1st and 2nd gear.
Slow acceleration in 3rd, 4th, and 5th gear. Vinyl interior needs improvement. Disappointed in the reliability.
