2009 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My wife totaled our 2006 Corolla LE. Decided we wanted another Corolla but with a little sport. So we purchased the S Model. Car looks sleek and aggressive. I agree with some posters that the paint needs to be more durable. Like maybe 3 or 4 layers. Gas mileage is incredible and you have to love spending about $30 dollars to fill up the tank. I wish though the seats can be adjusted in more different ways and the steering feels at times a little artificial. Other than that, I'd buy another Corolla.


Best Features

Gas Mileage, easy to drive, drives well built


Worst Features

Fix the artificial steering feel, more durable paint, clock should belong on the center console like the older model, why does the outside temp have to be with the clock and mpg settings?

2009 Toyota Corolla Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My car has had 3 recalls and a TSB. In the 14 months I've had the car, it has been in the shop 6 times. The steering still isn't great after the TSB. Toyota has assigned me a different first name from day one, and after many phone calls and faxes, I still can't get it corrected. Calling TOYOTA headquarters in Torrance, CA. IS A BIG WASTE OF TIME. I only drive this car around town and would be too scared to take it on a road trip. I owned a Subaru before my Corolla and drove it for 19 years. I would get rid of my Corolla tomorrow if I could afford to.


Best Features

Size, great mileage, average 31.2 around town. I like the outside temperature gauge, and how the back seats fold down.


Worst Features

Move the clock next to the radio so it can be displayed all the time. I think Toyota should offer me a buy back.

2009 Toyota Corolla Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

My '07 Camry LE was wrecked and not the same after being repaired, so bought this Corolla. MPG is excellent, but the interior is cheap, with hard plastic everywhere. Center console has uncomfortable hard plastic to rest your elbow on. The car handles well in the snow with the traction control. Outside/wind noise is quite apparent at times. In spite of these complaints, it's a very good little car and I'd buy another one if I had to, but wish I had my Camry back. The Camry was luxurious compared to this Corolla. This car sits low, making it hard for me to get out of, even with the seat elevated as high as it will go. This car will run 70+ mph on the interstates without batting an eyelash.


Best Features

Gas mileage! Handles well. Very dependable little car. Have had no service issues at all with it.


Worst Features

Padded dashboard and armrest instead of hard plastic.

2009 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Car is very dependable, handles good but steering is numb, the sport model has comfortable seating and good smooth ride. Car is responsive and will give 36-37 mpg on hwy with Cruise set at 73-74 mph., get 28-29 mpg. City driving. No problems in the 16 months I have owned the car & driven 10k.


Best Features

comfortable seating, smooth shifting, excellent gas mileage, adequate power, good audio/stereo system.


Worst Features

improve rear/side visibility, heavier coat of exterior paint would be nice. Improve steering sensitiveness.
