2009 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Car is very dependable, handles good but steering is numb, the sport model has comfortable seating and good smooth ride. Car is responsive and will give 36-37 mpg on hwy with Cruise set at 73-74 mph., get 28-29 mpg. City driving. No problems in the 16 months I have owned the car & driven 10k.


Best Features

comfortable seating, smooth shifting, excellent gas mileage, adequate power, good audio/stereo system.


Worst Features

improve rear/side visibility, heavier coat of exterior paint would be nice. Improve steering sensitiveness.

2009 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I owned a 2008 Civic that was totaled and replaced it with a 2009 Corolla. The Corolla is much quieter and smoother on the road and the stereo in the LE Corolla has a much richer sound than did the LX Civic. The Corolla gets fantastic gas mileage, as did the Civic, 35mpg is easy.


Best Features

Smoothness, quietness, roominess.


Worst Features

Make the auto driver auto up as well as auto down.

2009 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I am very pleased with my 09 Corolla S as of today it has 43k miles on it. It delivers on everything Toyota claims. Incredible fuel economy I commonly get over 40 MPG with mixed driving. On a trip from Sacramento CA to Los Angeles CA I averaged 45.3 MPG with the cruise set to 70 MPH and yes after driving over 370 miles I had over a half tank showing on the display. Styling is very impressive for a compact car. It gives you the feel of a much larger car while driving. Corners like a sports car with very little body roll or tire squeaks. I am the owner of a used car dealership so I drive dozens of cars on a daily basis I would recommend this car to anybody hands down!


Best Features

fuel economy, styling, interior features, and comfort.


Worst Features

This was a tough one! I guess I'd use thicker floor mats I've placed a hole on the bottom of the driver's side mat from where my heal makes contact.

2009 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased this 09 corolla s model in DEC of 09 and traded it in on March of this year (2010). Corolla was garbage. Steering was horrible wind blew the car all over the highway and if a 18-Wheeler passed you, you had better hold on for dear life. Car was a death trap and after 4 month's I had enough and got a 2010 Kia forte coup and the difference between the 2 cars is night and day. Easy to see why Toyota is having all these problems. They are not building quality cars like they used to. According to owners reviews on this site i am not the only one who had problems with the corolla.


Best Features

the mpg


Worst Features

fix the steering issues that seem to be plaguing the corollas before somebody gets killed like i almost was.

Review

I use this car for back and forth to work and get 34-36 mpg year round and 40 on the highway. It is roomy for its size and with the backseat down I can carry all sorts of things.


Best Features

It is very quiet and gets great mileage.I change my own oil and it is very easy to service.


Worst Features

Change the location of the clock.
