2006 Toyota Corolla CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


After reading so many other reviews, I'm convinced I got a Corolla reject! Door hinges started to come apart after a few months. I paid $700 extra for that paint protection, undercoating crap (I know, I know, my own fault). The paint scratches off when my nails hit it lightly on the trunk. I have lots of paint chips where rust is coming through! Not in places where stones could even hit it! Now, my alloy wheels are rusting from the inside and look all bubbly. There is an annoying *ping* when pulling out of a parking space that makes everyone in the parking lot turn and look. I'm so disappointed in the quality of this car. I'm dumping it now that I'm out of warranty!

Best Features

Gas mileage better than many cars today. Worse than my old Mazda stick shift though.

Worst Features

Quality control! Better paint.
