2014 Toyota Corolla L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


This is an addition to my previous review. If you're looking for a sports car the 6-speed might not fit. Passing with the 6 speed can be a bit challenging, although its still capable. At 55 mph in 6th gear drop it into 4th and punch it to moderately pass on the open road. Do not challenge on coming traffic, give yourself room. When shifting from 5th into 6th ride the shifter to the far right as to not accidentally drop it back into 4th. A sloppy shift may end up going from 5th back to 4th. Also mind going from 4th to 5th as to not accidentally drop into 3rd. This advice applies to folks whom are new to driving manual transmissions, seasoned folks will not find this problem.

Best Features

My favorite feature is the manual trans and the gas mileage it offers. I have been driving a manual transmission my entire life and I prefer it. If you are new to a manual, take time to adjust to it, especially if you are in a 5 speed mindset. Reverse is to the left of first gear. To get into reverse there is a collar on the shifter that you slide up to "unlock" reverse, this is so you do not accidentally put it into reverse while driving forward. Favorite features are, bluetooth, tinted windows, large trunk space, gas mileage (40 MPG+ hwy)

Worst Features

Adjust the windshield wiper control to add more speeds and frequency, its either to slow or to fast. Illuminated electric door lock buttons. Auto power window on both front doors.
