Front end rattle
By Kurt on


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


I had this car for only about a month when it developed a loud rattle in the front end on both sides. Took it back to the dealer and after a "test drive", they found no problem to fix and didn't hear any noises from the front end. They replaced some plastic clips holding a cover under the car and sent me on my way. The noise is getting worse and nobody seems to care. Going to an independent mechanic soon to get his opinion.

Best Features

Styling, performance, economy, features. The electronic steering some complain about is only an adjustment to make in your driving style, no problem. Arm rest too low? Use your lap. Can't build one car for all people's sizes. IPod dock is great as is the Bluetooth.

Worst Features

Variable speed intermittent wipers. Larger wheels and tires would improve handling which is NOT bad to begin with. This car shows a lot of thought went into its design and comfort features.
