In April 2012, I bought a 2010 Corolla LE with 7018 miles, from a Honda dealer, for $13,685.
I bought it because of the advertised great fuel milage, and for the 8 total air bags ( small car safety ).
The car is a good vehicle for low speed local travel, but highway noise above 55mph is excessive!
I simply would not buy a Corolla again because of the excessive road noise.
This is obviously a cheap car, but the all plastic interior is disgustingly cheap.
I suppose I got what I paid for, but I now do NOT plan to keep this car.
Interestingly, someone else traded it in at the Honda dealership where I bought it. WHY ??
I am now planning to trade it also!
I made a mistake buying a 2010 Corolla LE!
Good reliability record.
Good fuel milage.
8 air bags.
EXCESSIVE road/highway noise!
Very cheap looking all plastic interior.
