Good Mileage - not much else unfortunately
By jring123 on
2010 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Had this as a rental for 2 weeks - looked like [violative content deleted] outside (scratched, chipped and dented all around) and inside (seat fabric worn, plastic color rubbed off everywhere) after a year - albeit with 30k miles. Even if one reckons in careless handling it did look worse than any other rental I had - including a lot older ones.
Performance was ok but not more - I guess I'm spoiled by my saab turbo...
Steering was unremarkable, what was a bit strange was the whole Traction Control, Anti-Skid Brake and Cruise Control unit - see below.
Seats and Interior were very uncomfortable for my 6'2" - seats don't go back far enough for sufficient legroom and hard plastic on door and dash hurts legs.
40 mpg average going fast on mainly highway & interstate
Traction Control was not really working - got tires spinning easier than on my Saab which has more horsepower and torque and NO traction control....
Anti Skid Brakes where also not so hot - did skid several times while getting used to the strange brake curve with lots of dead way followed by a sharp brake...
Cruise Control has a tendency to accelerate while and after going uphill - normally stops after some seconds but once did continue for at least 15 seconds until I switched it off at 80 mph or so.
Cheap Interior, outside scratches and dents easily, very uncomfortable even for moderately tall persons, Controls are at awkward places
