2009 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Just traded my 2009 corolla S in today for a Honda CR-V. The corolla had a clutch issue. Constantly stalling in traffic. I mentioned it to the dealer, they just insinuated that I needed more "practice with clutch". Well, 35 years is a lot. My other car has a clutch, no problem there and anyone who drove this corolla had issues also. Paid 19k. It was only worth 9k a little over a year later. Cramped, zero headroom, cheap paint job, plastic parts that snap in the cold. It did have good gas mileage tho, and I could have dealt with all of the cosmetic stuff, but the stalling out in traffic thing is just plain dangerous. Didn't want to wait for a recall and maybe become a statistic. Shame on you Toyota!

Best Features

Great gas, mileage, great headlights for night driving

Worst Features

Use better quality materials. This corolla was made of cheap plastic parts, had cheesy paint, awful awful car. Rotten sound system, I am sorry that I bought it. Very sorry.
