Overall, a great car. The ride is bouncy on side streets at slower speeds. Our other car, a Focus, is also small, but has a smoother ride.
For a such a small car, the Corolla is quiet, gets very good gas mileage and is competent on the road. Its fun to drive. The manual transmission is easy to shift. The seats are very comfortable for us.
Needs a smoother ride, an auxiliary jack on the radio for an mp3 player (who plays CDs anymore) and a bit more headroom in the back. Plastic wheel covers need to hide the black rims underneath. From behind, shouldn’t look like a tiny econobox.
