Gas mileage is great. Small size for easy city/tight spot parking, yet spacious inside. Has a luxurious feeling to it inside. I got the LE fully equipped: ABS, EBD, curtain airbags for rear, cruise control. Acceleration is a bit disappointing on highway, but once cruise speed is attained has no problem reaching 90 mph, and sounds and feels quite smooth.
ABS/EBD, side curtain airbags for rear (I have 2 young kids) doors closing sound like a luxury car.
Need auxiliary jack plus MP3 playback capability. No corolla trim has MP3 available! Outside look bland and simple (ie. boring). Seriously considering trading for Scion xB in spite of financial hit.
