2010 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
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.
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.
I've never had a new car with rattles and squeaks...??
Low wind noise, fun to drive, nice interior, the S looks nice and clean.
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.
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 :).
On the topic of the Corolla only having a 4 speed auto:
Keep in mind that it STILL beats just about all the cars in its class for mpg.
And on top of that, the 4 speed auto is proven, it is a battleship, ultra-reliable.
I don't know you can say that for all the new 5 & 6 speed autos that any maker produces.
Tires can produce lots of noise on a concrete road vs. ashpalt.
The Corolla is very quiet for a car in its class.
