this a 2010 Corolla S Automatic canadian edition, drove 16000+kms for 5 months now. my last car was a 1998 corolla VE, drove it for more than 6 years and 200000+kms. Not much changes to the basic car, drives without much problem. i drive around 150kms a day on weekdays and averages 7.2liters/100kms. Good traction on snow and ice when combined with michelin
X ice tires.
Observations- Paint chipped
off with few months, On cold mornings the accessories belt/pulley whines while starting. Both these
according to Toyota Service advisor are usual and they can do nothing about it!
Gear change from 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 had a slight delay, the dealership corrected it during 2nd service
Traction control and VSC system is very helpful. Fog lamps, telescopic steering with audio controls are all good. Black interiors.. Good improvement on the lighting system. The Auto light feature is very good. Fog lamps also helps a lot.. ABS system does work. Electric steering and Electric throttle works good.
Corolla is the car that had taken me to work and back in all kinds of weather for the past 7 years
As many have mentioned the clock is at the wrong place, coin holder is missing, wipers looks like designed for Right Hand Driven cars!. There a windshield area in front of driver that the wiper fails to wipe.
paint need improvement.
workmanship need improvement, there
was rattling noise from inside the car, two visits to dealership failed to find out the cause, finally i figured out the sound is coming from driver side sun visor. Toyota replaced the visor after few follow ups, the technician did not install it properly, had to go back to dealership 4th time to get this corrected...trunk release through key fob failed to actuate.Had to report
twice with dealer to get this corrected...
