I've had my 06 corolla s for about one year now and I'm very pleased with it. Before I purchased my car, I was driving a 03 corolla ce. At that time it had 52,000 miles, currently 120,000. I didn't like the BASIC trim with no pwr windows, door locks, cruise, abs, etc. The 03 is in great condition, despite some maintenance that's needed. The 06 s is way better. I love the exterior design with the full body pkg. Rated at 126 hp is not much, but really doesn't feel like 126. I've taken the liberty and placed a v6 badge on the vehicle, of course I raised a few eyebrow's, but hey, why not. Fill the tank with 93oct, and you notice a big difference. Overall I'm satisfied with it. It's a great car.
The ride quality. Very quiet and smooth. Handling is exceptional. MPG'S.
Improvement's would have to be: Bigger engine and tranny, different choice of rear suspension, maybe a independent rear suspension. More standard safety feature's. More feature's for driver and passenger's.
