The Spartan of the economy cars.
By stinkymcdugan on


2010 Toyota Corolla LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


This is not a sports car, nor is it a luxury car.
It's a compact car that happens to be fun to drive and efficent.
If your buying this car to race it your buying the wrong car. If your expecting this to ride like a caddy, your likely to be disappointed.

If your buying the car to commute to work, and pickup the groceries this is a great car.
It is predictable, it manuevers well, it is easy on gas, and it isn't likely to break down.

This car will doesn't depreciate as quickly as the rest of the competition.
It's not as flashy as some of the others either.
The corolla is a spartan car. It does the job well, my last corolla had 340K and still didn't miss a beat.

Best Features

fuel economy predictability cabin space affordabilty

Worst Features

I would like to see the clock integrated into the stereo. I believe subtle changes to the interior panels would make the car more appealing. Toyota should run synthetic in these models to make the frequency of oil changes less demanding.

Starting with 2011, Corollas run synthetic and have 10,000 mile or 1 year oil changes.
