Is Toyota losing their touch?
By johnhlanding on


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


This is my second toyota and has come to be very disappointing. The build quality, cheap parts, and overall value of the car is terrible. My biggest issue is oil consumption. The car uses at least 1 quart of oil a week. The dealer says nothing is wrong. Other reviews online point out the same issue. My life now consists of weekly visits to an instant oil change place to get it topped off. Thank God it is free! Otherwise I would go bankrupt just buying oil to refill it with. The steering is awful at high speeds. I fear that Toyota is becoming the Japanese version of GM. I guess I will try my luck with Honda or maybe Ford if I am forced to find another vehicle.

Best Features

The exterior design of the car has revamped the corolla.

Worst Features

Fix engine problem with oil consumption. Make interior less plain and with better materials. This cheap stuff that you installed in it is wearing out fast.
