Test drove the Elantra, Mazda 3, Sonata, Fusion, and the Mazda 6 before going Corolla again.
Eight months old and just hit 20K on the odometer for my '12 base model. The car has zero issues, and is a great commuter with occasional long trips.
My other Corolla is a '03.
As it should be the '12 is noticeably quieter, comes with ESC and ABS not on the '03.
Its basically same engine, but '12 seems tuned for more power -- as the '03 would have noticeable power drop when using AC.
Even with more power, regularly getting 33 to 35 average MPG on each tank full on the 2012.
