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

Review

My first tow back to the dealer was at 26 km. Sadly things went downhill from there. When I complained about all the rattles and excessive number of engine repairs a Toyota official told me "you cannot compared the Corolla to the Dodge Neon -- they're not in the same class". Three years later I've come to realize they weren't joking. As an example of the corner-cutting in this car notice that Toyota chose tape rather than clamps to hold the windscreen washer hoses under the bonnet. Now just out of warranty, and at just 19,000 km, I've been told the piston rings need to be replaced.

Suggested Improvements

If you remove the hard plastic centre console lid you won't hit your funny bone when changing into 2/4/reverse. An over-drive gear would be nice. A proper clock. A trip-computer button located anywhere else. A quality interior.
