I just bought the 2006 Corolla, and so far I love it. It's small, spunky, has pep, a great interior, is perfectly sized for me as a small person, and has Toyota's great reliability/durability history. I'm on a budget, so I didn't get keyless entry. Wish I did. I haven't ridden over 35 miles on the fwy yet, so can't say.
Smooth, quiet, ride. Comfy, and nice interior, cute exterior, easily adaptable for a small person.
Include keyless entry and power windows in the basic model.
