Got 800 miles on it so far, I went all out and got the S with sunroof, wheels, leather w/heated seats and XM radio! I have to say that I am extremely happy with my purchase. Couple negative things I will say about the car (the few I have) is that the passenger seat needs to have lots more room then it has now. I think this is mostly in the design of the dashboard and how far it comes out. I'm 6'3 and fit perfectly in the drivers seat, but my knees are almost touching the dash when I sit in the passengers seat. Toyota...make intermittent wipers standard! I was quite dissapointed to spend 21k on a car not to have them. Finally I would love to see auto up/down drivers window.
I have to say I was quite worried based on the reviews with this whole steering issue, but unless they made a major change in 2010, I am experiencing ZERO issues...I think most people aren't used to the new electric steering vs. older versions of the corolla and its hard steering.
I average 30 mpg combined around town and 34 mpg doing straight highway. This car (equipped like mine) reminds me a lot of the Lexus IS 250, just with a smaller engine. Toyota has done a great job with the finishes on the car up to including closing the car doors...solid.
This car may not work for everyone, however I would give it two thumbs up! If you can, take advantage of the 0% financing and no payments for 90 days!
