I have it since 2010. I'm driving 80% - 90% on highway, around 70mph, usually full load, 4 persons. Now, it shows only 30mpg when I add gas. I've been watching in different weather, hot/warm/cool, it is around there. The meter in the car stills shows 36mpg which I don't understand. Can someone tell me why? how to improve it?
I had really bad experience with Toyota Corolla 2010. When I was driving, all of a sudden I felt that my steering wheel was tightened up and very hard to turn. Lights on my dashboard (ABS, ENGINE MALFUNCTION/CHECK ENGINE INDICATOR, BREAK, VSC OFF) were lightened up and my car came to a total stop after about 3 minutes. I was very scared as I had my baby and family in the car when this happened. I tried starting my car several times but it failed to respond. I towed the car to the local dealer.The dealership people got back to me saying there was an internal malfunction in the throttle body assembly. They fixed and I took back the car and I put another 100 miles and again the same incident ha
I've had my 2010 Corolla S for a while now. I'm happy that it's getting around 30.5mpg in the city driving, I dont drive much on the highway. The wind noise is pretty quiet..
Things I don't like: It has a 4 speed automatic transmission, why isn't this a 5 speed or 6 speed? Come on Toyota...
Loud road noise on concrete highways. Very loud. Unbelievably loud. My friends 2010 Elantra is silent compared to this car..
I hear creaking coming from the drivers side front pillar and back pillar on passengers side. I also hear a weird rattle underneath the dash that sounds like a tan can. Who knows? I've never had a new car with rattles and squeaks...??
Low wind noise, fun to drive, nice interior, the S looks nice and clean.
Even if I have a lot of negative things to say about the car, I really do like the car.
I test drove a lot of cars and the Corolla drives really nice compared to others.
Quiet the car down, include bluetooth and usb port like every other manufacturer, include a 5 or 6 speed auto transmission.
For the price of the car this should've been included, I don't care if it's a Toyota or not.
If you're afraid of reliability of other cars, just get a good extended warranty :).
This is a very nice, reliable, comfortable, and inexpensive car. It is quiet on the highway, and comfortable. Bullet-proof reliability. Cheap to maintain, and great on gas. Many people say the 4 speed automatic is old and outdated, but take another look. That's right, the Corolla is just about THE most fuel efficient in it's class, according to Consumer Reports. So, yes, a 5 speed auto would be bettter, but the 4 speed auto still beats just about all the other cars in this class, and it is very quiet. The engine & transmission are proven - ultra-reliable for an automatic.
Fuel mileage, comfortable, quiet, RELIABLE, and safe.
Paint is fine, same as other new cars, no issues in over 11,000 miles.
Zero build quality or any issues - never been back to dealer except for free oil changes.
Very easy to maintain yourself - only requires oil and air filter changes for I think first 100,000 miles.
Although I will drain and fill tranny fluid a few times, change out other fluids at 75,000 miles just to be safe.
New 2011 Corollas get 10,000 mile or 1 year oil changes.
Roomy for a car in this class, and good trunk space.
Interior has too much hard plastic that is too easy to scratch.
Move clock up a little higher.
