2010 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I had really bad experience with Toyota Corolla 2010. When I was driving, all of a sudden I felt that my steering wheel was tightened up and very hard to turn. Lights on my dashboard (ABS, ENGINE MALFUNCTION/CHECK ENGINE INDICATOR, BREAK, VSC OFF) were lightened up and my car came to a total stop after about 3 minutes. I was very scared as I had my baby and family in the car when this happened. I tried starting my car several times but it failed to respond. I towed the car to the local dealer.The dealership people got back to me saying there was an internal malfunction in the throttle body assembly. They fixed and I took back the car and I put another 100 miles and again the same incident ha

2010 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have been very pleased so far. Reliable transportation and averaging 37 mpgs! Wish I could have afforded a camry, though.


Favorite Features

Looks, reliability, gas mileage, smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Interior seems cheap (but I guess everything is like that these days) Carpet is a joke. Plastics will have to pass the test of time.

2010 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've had my 2010 Corolla S for a while now. I'm happy that it's getting around 30.5mpg in the city driving, I donít drive much on the highway. The wind noise is pretty quiet.. Things I don't like: It has a 4 speed automatic transmission, why isn't this a 5 speed or 6 speed? Come on Toyota... Loud road noise on concrete highways. Very loud. Unbelievably loud. My friends 2010 Elantra is silent compared to this car.. I hear creaking coming from the drivers side front pillar and back pillar on passengers side. I also hear a weird rattle underneath the dash that sounds like a tan can. Who knows? I've never had a new car with rattles and squeaks...??


Favorite Features

Low wind noise, fun to drive, nice interior, the S looks nice and clean. Good MPG. Even if I have a lot of negative things to say about the car, I really do like the car. I test drove a lot of cars and the Corolla drives really nice compared to others.


Suggested Improvements

Quiet the car down, include bluetooth and usb port like every other manufacturer, include a 5 or 6 speed auto transmission. For the price of the car this should've been included, I don't care if it's a Toyota or not. If you're afraid of reliability of other cars, just get a good extended warranty :).

2010 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is a very nice, reliable, comfortable, and inexpensive car. It is quiet on the highway, and comfortable. Bullet-proof reliability. Cheap to maintain, and great on gas. Many people say the 4 speed automatic is old and outdated, but take another look. That's right, the Corolla is just about THE most fuel efficient in it's class, according to Consumer Reports. So, yes, a 5 speed auto would be bettter, but the 4 speed auto still beats just about all the other cars in this class, and it is very quiet. The engine & transmission are proven - ultra-reliable for an automatic.


Favorite Features

Fuel mileage, comfortable, quiet, RELIABLE, and safe. Paint is fine, same as other new cars, no issues in over 11,000 miles. Zero build quality or any issues - never been back to dealer except for free oil changes. Very easy to maintain yourself - only requires oil and air filter changes for I think first 100,000 miles. Although I will drain and fill tranny fluid a few times, change out other fluids at 75,000 miles just to be safe. New 2011 Corollas get 10,000 mile or 1 year oil changes. Roomy for a car in this class, and good trunk space.


Suggested Improvements

Interior has too much hard plastic that is too easy to scratch. Move clock up a little higher.

2010 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This car seems to have had every corner cut possible to save money. 1rst, the paint is a joke. Easily chipped, scratched, dinged. I feel that just by looking at the car the paint begins to peel! Buy the paint protection if available, its worth it. 2nd, the car just feels cheap. From the interior controls (ie windows, door locks, mirrors, etc.) to the body panels and trunk deck; flimsy, thin, & cheap. 13k miles and already had the trunk cable break. My 99 civic with 209K miles never had the trunk cable break. Leaves me wondering what will be next. The drive train is about the only positive so far, as the motor runs smooth and the auto trans shift smoothly. But for how long is the ??


Favorite Features

Gas mileage. My GF gets 39 mpg on the highway. Layout of the controls is designed well. The ride is smooth and quiet as well as the motor. It's almost as quiet as a Prius. Trip ODO with outside temp & average mpg is nice. Steering wheel audio controls. Clock. Low gas warning light. Lots of compartments in the interior. Trunk tray comes in handy to keep items from rolling all over the trunk. Headlights are bright and project well. Headlights are also idiot proof as they auto-on when it is dark. Tachometer. Fog-lights. Sunroof.


Suggested Improvements

Please remove the square dash corner that I smash my knee into when entering the vehicle. Use better paint!!! Good grief this car chips & scratches way to easy. Bigger gas tank! Better factory tires would be nice. Cheapest floor mats ever made!!! Camon man, you can do better. Tighten down the interior pieces better, way too much clangin and rattling when not on smooth surfaces.
