If left in the wrong place mice can get into the car and up onto the headliner and map box.

2012 Toyota Corolla Sedan LE 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second Corolla. I've never driven another car I liked as well. I've driven a Camry, Avalon, Tundra and Prius. The car is lean and agile, ample but not over-stuffed. I like the maneuverability of the car,integrity of the body, clean, simple interior. It's a great value. It;s worth the time & money to invest in good maintenance.

2012 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Nice driving and handling car! Acceleration is iffy/slightly jumpy for some reason (transmission ??) The front seats can use more padding for sure! I've sat in cars 30 years older than this one, and they were more comfortable than these front seats! Had to add a complete aftermarket stereo system (Alpine head unit, 4 Memphis speakers and Audiopipe amp) since the factory one was so terrible, and can hardly hear it! Again, been in cars 15+ years older that have way better factory sound systems! Nah, this car is really fun to drive, and very reliable! You just can't beat Toyota's dependability! Not even Honda comes close!

2012 Toyota Corolla Sedan S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Nice driving and handling car! Acceleration is iffy/slightly jumpy. TIP FOR THAT ACCELERATION ISSUE: You need to keep the throttle body as clean as possible on these engines! After I had that cleaned, the car takes off like a raped ape, just by touching the gas a quarter way! The front seats can use more padding for sure! Not sure what type of fabric they are using nowadays! Would have liked some crushed velour! I've sat in cars 30 years older than this one, and they were more comfortable than these front seats! Had to add a complete aftermarket stereo system (Alpine head unit, 4 Memphis speakers and Audiopipe amp) since the factory one was so terrible, and can hardly hear it!

Review

My wife owns this 2012 Corolla S 4A, and it has many issues that annoy me. First the front right and rear right speakers are partially blown out. Seat ergonomics are horrible. Traction control system cuts power right when you need it. It has been reliable, and has surprisingly little body roll. The steering is direct, but numb. Acceleration is poor. It will scream all the way to 6k rpm without much happening. If you are looking for something "cheap" to get you from A to B, and you are also a toyota fanboy, this is the car for you. Otherwise, buy almost anything else. A USB port in the car doesn't do much if half the speakers blow out (happened in my mother-in-laws camry as well). Buy a civic or subaru impreza in the same price range.
