This is my third Corolla. I traded in a 1995 for a 2003. Loved the 2003 S, I only traded it in because the miles were high (I drove a lot back then.) I feel that Toyota really let the interior quality go down hill. There are rattles and shakes in the doors, glove box and sunroof. My gearshift wobbles and the felt lining in the ceiling is coming out... not what I expected. I'll still keep the car until it gives out on me, but I'm very disappointed in the interior quality.
This is a reliable, low maintenance vehicle and the MPG are 2nd to none! I love the look and it's a comfortable car for the 17 hr drive I do twice a year.
None - the new 2009 is near perfect. I should have held out a few more months, but I still love my 2008.
