Love it
I read all the reviews before purchase and I am really happy with this car. It is a great value. The safety features that come standard are awesome. I like the radar-responsive cruise control for highway commuting, as well as the lane alert. The design of the car is such that there are very few blind spots. The seat is very comfortable, and it is just comfortable to drive. The turning radius is great and it is very responsive. I live in a city with hills and I love the hill assist feature--no rolling back! It is also great for city parking. The temperature control and sound system are wonderful. The gas mileage is fantastic! And this is a car which holds its value and comes with years of mainteance support, keeping the mainteance costs lows. The only two areas that could be improved are consistent with what the fancy car reviewers say: 1) it could go from 0 to 60 a little faster. That being said, it is consistent with other value cars that I have driven. No better but no worse. 2) The gear shifts in lower gears are a little louder than they could be. There are quieter cars out there. But overall this is car is a great value! I needed a car at a good price, that would hold its value, had great fuel efficiency, high safety standards and low maintenance costs. This car wins in all those categories. And it is fun to drive. The bonus for us is that the trunk is big enough to take the two kids camping, and the 60/40 split means one person can sit in the back seat and we can still haul longer items. Very pleased!
They should not have changed it
My family has enjoyed the use of a 1998 Corolla that was purchased new. For the past eighteen years and more than 235,00 miles, problem free driving was ours with only routine scheduled maintenance. Two weeks ago we decided to purchase a new Corolla. We test drove the 2017 Corolla. The lack of comfort and the level of road noise in "that cabin", as compared to what we had become accustomed to in our 1998 model was no small matter. The noise especially, was so annoying that we decided to purchase a Camry after giving one a test drive that very same day. I had learned from the sales manager that a lot of owners of our generation Corolla had decided to upgrade to a new Camry instead of repeating their purchase of a new Corolla after test driving the new Corolla. The manager also mentioned that Toyota made certain design changes between the model years that probably contributed to the issues we had with the new Corolla.
Toyota lost a fanboy.
First, there is a lot of things right with this car. Fit and Finish are great, and there are no squeaks or rattles, and the price (with discounts) make it a better deal than a Honda. If everything else after that was just average I would be satisfied, BUT. The transmission is horrible. The CVT works great in snowmobile, but does it belong in a car? The engine is always revving to a high rpm range when you accelerate, and you wait for the transmission to catch up. It is dangerous when you try to pass or merge from an on ramp. This creates a lot of noise in the cabin. I know now why the salesman went with me on the test drive, picked the route (city streets), and never stopped talking. It was so I wouldn't notice how bad the noise or tranny was. I took the car on a 100 mile trip to my parents house and my back hurt and I'm young, skinny, and a runner. when you take a test drive leave the salesman at the dealer. If they insist on going along, walk away. Drive onto a highway, try merging with traffic, try to pass, and you won't buy it. The car is so slow and hesitant that it is almost dangerous. I am going to trade this car on a Honda or Nissan next year, take the bath, and never look back . What we need is a law that you can return the car in 48 hours and I bet that a lot of people will.
