2012 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
For someone on a budget that wanted a "new" car, the Corolla fit the bill perfectly. The cost of ownership is extremely low. Almost zero maintenance required throughout its life.
The interior is relatively spacious for such a small car. I don't find anything to feel "cheap" though almost everything is plastic. My interior is black so maybe that helps make it look more classy.
The ride quality is superb. The cabin is QUIET and the car soaks up most large bumps.
Mine is a 5-speed so maybe that helps with the
fun factor. I also have the S model (black exterior) which really improves the car's appearance. I'm VERY happy with my purchase! Don't let these bad reviews put you off!!
