I have been happy with the S model. I am used to high comfort and performance so I was apprehensive about getting a small car like this. After test driving many cars, this one was comfortable, fun and had a good reputation. Also, I like the great gas mileage. In almost two years I have had no problems and no complaints.
I like the seats in the S model much better that the LE or CE models. I am now in my 40s and can drive long distances, so the additional comfort, support and quality of the seats is a big plus for me.
For those of us who do not mind spending more, I wish they offered a high end Corolla but I guess that would be counter to their main marketing strategy.
