Decided to give Corolla a try, bought new from dealership. Huge mistake!!!
In the light you can't tell as well, but overcast and evenings it's horrible.
Front fender does not match hood and front doors, front doors do not match rear doors, rear doors do not match quarter panels. Dealer admitted seeing problem and called corporate Toyota. Corporate said since we see it on all white Corollas, it is "normal". Took to arbitration (as "required" by Toyota before court) who also sees mismatch but does not deem it to be a "defect"
I'm not talking about the horribly mismatched bumpers here, but the metal panels. If you don't like feeling you got screwed, don't get a white Corolla
good gas mileage compared to my old v6 Maxima.
What 4 cylinder wouldn't though...
It seems Toyota is trying to sponsor charity events and advertising to make up for their recent Prius SNAFUs in the press.
A comparable Civic was $2500 more, but now I see why the Corolla is cheaper.
I look at Kias (lower than Huyndais) that are built with higher quality than the Corolla
Toyota: Build quality vehicles like the ones that are so highly praised in the 80s and 90s, but there are a certain number of customers you can displease without negatively affecting the sales figures right?
My father and other 60+ year old guys I know drove Toyotas, but they are a "one and done" for me.
