Great car but needs some improvements

2013 Toyota Corolla L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


It has been more than a month and I am happy with my Toyota Corolla S car. It has nice interior and built in touch screen display for bluetooth smart phone connection, radio/CD buttons. S trim doesn't have variable wipers.

All your smartphone contacts are visible and that's a great feature on display. The interior is also nice and spacious compared to Sentra in the same class. S trim doesn't have intermittent variable wipers compared to LE. It's 0.7 inch shorter than LE.

Makes lot of noise and vibration when it changes gears to high but then it's pretty smooth. When climbing uphill, it sometimes smells gas.

It has good pick up (torque) but not like previous corollas.

Best Features

It has nitrogen filled alloy wheel tires. Heated mirrors, nightview dimming rear view mirror, seat height adjustment. Display for low tire pressure and average gas mileage, outside temperature display. Trunk is spacious and has day time running lights.

Worst Features

Need to add more torque power to the car like previous corollas and need to reduce the noise and vibration when going to high gears during pick up. Steering is electronic and powered, so it's flaky at high winds and that needs to be made less sensitive and more robust like Sentra.
