OK except wierd brake placement
By Robert Weiner on


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


traded in an old SUV and got clunker discount on a new Corolla. Main problem with the Corolla is brake pedal engages way down near the floor where the accelerator pedal is. Easy to hit accelerator when trying to brake. Why does Toyota for 2009 decide to situate non-adjustable break point so low? Electronic steering becomes annoying after a while too. No real road feel as in a normal hydraulic steering system.

Best Features

rear seats fold down for long cargo. Engine very peppy (so don't hit accelerator unless you really want power!)

Worst Features

Reposition brake pedal away from accelerator territory. Go back to hydraulic assisted rack and pinion steering.
