We purchased this car as a downsize from an SUV because of gas mileage and gas prices. The Corolla has great gas mileage, we average between 32 and 35. Handles well and looks good. It is so small though. The door pockets are not large enough to put much in. There needs to be a trunk release on the keypad. It would also be nice if the direction and temperature indicator was on the rearview mirror instead of the dash. The front drivers seat can be raised... it would be nice if the passenger seat raised as well. The map lights on the rearview mirror are nice. The passenger can have it on tp read a map or whatever without it disturbing the driver.
Gas mileage. We went from 16 in our other vehicle to 32-35 in the Corolla. Has some good punch for a small car.
Some features too small. No trunk release on keypad. It would be nice if the horn beeped when you lock the car with the keypad so you know it's locked. Shifter can be knocked into neutral while driving just by bumping it or something sliding into it when you are stepping on the brake.
