I purchased my 2007 Toyota Corolla from the dealer new in Jan of '07. Overall, I went with the Corolla based purely on the proven track record of its reliability. It hasn't let me down. Only maintenance I perform is changing the oil every 5k miles (I've used synthetic since the first change at 2000 miles). The engine runs like new. Tires have been replaced (upgraded to 205/16 from 185/15) with some 90,000 mile Michelin Hydro-Edge so I think they will be the last set I buy before I trade it in. I will perform a full maintenance at 90,000 miles just to be safe.
Gas mileage. Seats are pretty comfortable to me(5'9" 170 lbs). I think they are the old 2006 Toyota Camry seats.
This car picks up a lot of road noise but getting the new tires actually helped it some. I would like to see the db's lowered in the interior.
