I've had this car for a couple months now and am pleased with what it is giving me. Great value in terms of design style and fuel efficiency + performance option in S model. This thing has a small engine so it will never feel truly sporty but I have an S model and when in Sport mode, the engine is trained to rev RPM high between gears when hitting the gas instead of holding down RPM as in economy mode (defaults to economy). So far I've yet to reset the gauge tracking fuel economy and over the first 2,200 miles, I have achieved a little over 29 MPG doing mainly city driving here in Miami where traffic can be a real pain (takes 25-30 minutes at times to travel 6-7 miles).

inspect windshield before buying

I am very saddened by the experience I've had with Toyota over the purchase of this vehicle. Overall this really is a good little car, gets the job done, decent pickup for the size, smooth enough ride although there is significant road noise compared to other vehicles I've driven, and good feel to it while driving. HOWEVER, there seems to be an issue with the windshields that Toyota is getting from its vendor. My original windshield had a very weird magnifying effect with random waves running through it that would distort the view of cars, the road, and other objects as you drove it. I took it to the dealer who agreed with me and replaced it, only to find the second one had the same problem. The third windshield is much better but still have two waves running through the driver's viewing range from different angles creating a significant distraction, and if you drive the car long enough, tension headaches. It seems Toyota is sick of dealing with this issue and is, what appears to be, refusing to fix the third defective windshield. I was given a loaner while my car has been in the shop for 1.5 months back and forth over this issue and the loaner appears to be fine. There is a great deal of inconsistency in the quality of the windshields being put on the 2015 Corollas, and recently I heard this is also true for the 2016s. Unfortunately I am now stuck with a car that has a defective windshields with waves in it, although it's better than the original windshield, and will have to replace it through Safelite on my own dime. This is a major fail, Toyota. Never again. I hope this review helps others to avoid the same situation. Not sure if this constitutes a significant impairment to the value of the vehicle which would be covered under lemon law in most states.

Good car with looks and features, noisy cabin

Bought a 2015 Corolla LE Plus. Love the looks vs the Camry's or the Corolla S Plus. The S plus has a bigger grille and darker rims which I did not like vs the smaller grille and shinier rims on the LE Plus model. I liked the steering on low speed with this car, but the thing I really disliked was hi-way driving. It is too sensitive in the steering at that speed, so it is kinda like a struggle to keep the car straight and it doesn't help that the car is more prone to wind blowing, so that makes the struggle even harder (especially near trucks). Acceleration is adequate. The ride is actually a little firm (good thing I didn't get the S Plus!) But the road noise can get harsh in freeway driving. I love listening to music and I upgraded my sound system by adding a subwoofer to the factory unit. Sounds much better, but I still have to crank up the volume because the road noise is too loud. Sometimes, it makes me have a slight regret that I didn't get the camry instead. This is what I like about the Corolla though... Good price, good looks, good gas mileage (35 avg), reliable so far, Michelin tires, led headlights, lots of interior space, and I really liked the color combo of the White exterior + Ivory/black interior. Disliked road noise, sensitive steering (harder to keep car going straight), average acceleration (engine noise too). Overall, its a great car if you don't mind my dislikes. For me, its a good buy mainly due to pricing because I couldn't afford the camry since it would be stretching my money too much (kinda poor but wanted new reliable car). Always have a slight regret due to knowing that the Camry is quieter and its acceleration is smoother. At $3000 more, it was hard to swallow the difference, that's how I ended up with the Corolla.

Good commuter car

The Toyota Corolla 2015 LE is a comfortable car for commuting long and short distances. It is a smooth ride at higher speeds on the freeways and has the power when you need it. It handles well but probably not sporty enough for most. You don't feel the bumps in the road like in most cars. It is certainly economical. It lets you know how much fuel you are using! The exterior of the car has a nice streamlined look. The interior is OK - looks a little outdated but has many convenient features like the Ensure media system. Bluetooth phone, voice activation, reverse camera, automatic climate control etc. There is plenty of room in the car and you head does not touch the ceiling. 2017: Car has been trustworthy over the last 2 years - the only problem is that it doesn't hold corners as well as some cars but is great for short and long commutes.

Fast for its class, not comfortable

Ride is pretty rough. Fuel mileage definitely not as advertised. If you're tall, you'll hit your head almost every time you get in. Comfortable once inside, plenty of head room, but getting out will be a challenge if you're not agile.
