2007 Toyota Corolla Sedan CE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Most important in cars for me is the reliability. I hate when the cars break down. It always happens at the worst possible time. When I was choosing a new car back in 2007 I thought Toyota was a good name for its reliability. Wrong! This car was a disaster. Electronics don't work. Breaks break all the time. And in the end at 100K miles the transmission failed. I would NEVER expected that from Toyota. This was my first and definitely the last Toyota.
2007 Toyota Corolla Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I have owned this car for the past 10 years, and it still drives like it's new. The MPG is great, (around 38), which is great since I don't want to go to the gas station every single day. I have made a couple modifications, such as replacing the headlights, (which I needed to aim upwards, not Toyota's fault since they're aftermarket.) There is some road noise, but I don't really mind since it's not that loud, the radio is fine, but I took off my antenna since it ruined the look of the car, and the radio works just fine without it anyways. This car is very reliable to drive, and I'm not worried about it breaking down. Something funny is that I've been using the same battery for the past 10 years, and I think that now is probably the time to replace it. Storage space is excellent considering the size of the car. I would highly recommend waxing the car at least once every year to protect the paint. However, I had to paint a couple places on the car myself, so I will need the car professionally painted. Other than that, I can't really think of much else to say here, other than if you're looking for a car to drive on the daily, this is the one.
