Three years or 36,000 miles. Point: Corollas have been built since 1966, and in that time the vehicle has evolved from basic transportation into a very solid, quiet and tight sedan that drives like a bigger, m re expensive vehicle. It has excellent power, the fit and finish are first-rate and the cabin is almost as spacious as the larger Camry. Counterpoint: I might prefer a different pattern for the cloth upholstery, and engine noise is a bit intrusive at full throttle. SPECIFICATIONS:
