In the past, I have owned a Dodge Durango with a hemi engine and BMW so I am used to great acceleration! This car is slow on take off. I am older now so maybe zooming around town is not a good idea 🙂 I am grateful for this car!
This is my first brand new car . Always owned used cars . It’s been exactly a year now that I had my Corolla . 13,500 miles so far I put on it . No issues . Been a perfect good mileage car . Getting 35 mpg. I drive In the city 5 days a week and hwy 1 day a week . I drive about 40 miles a day back and forth from home to work . I have to say i finally made the right choice in buying a car !
Certainly not a bad car, handles better than expected. It's better than older corollas but the difference just isn't as big as it should be. Brakes felt soft. Steering overboosted and wiggles around too much.no on centre feels. It never tries to motivate any sort of spirited driving but push it harder and the chassis somewhat impresses with relatively direct response and well controlled body motions. CVT is a let down especially for long term reliability. Engine just plain old underpowered. Retune the steering, add some power a proper transmission and It will be hugely improved.
This car is fastastic. I could not believe how many safety features it came with for the price I paid for it. The grill is ugly to me (no big deal), as were the hubcaps (LE trim - bought aftermarket wheels for it). The one issue - and Toyota confirmed this is just part of it - is with the cruise control. When it's set and you hit a downslope (even the backside of overpasses sometimes) the CVT can't adjust and sends the tachometer over 4000 rpms basically until the engine is forced to "pull" again. I watch it closely now and just touch the accelerator at the first hint, and it returns to normal. So this is in the vein of "first world problems", cause otherwise the car is way beyond satisfactory all around. The guy who wrote "it's like it's gliding on skates" hit the nail right on the head. I plan for it to be a great first car for my son eight years from now.
CVT transmission is quieter than my previous car nissan sentra, I like everything but the voice command. Its hard to use it, most of the time it cant recognize my voice or command unlike my 2 previous cars which has very excellent voice commands.
I miss the hatchback on my Scion xB. It is hard to get a wheelchair into the car due to the doors and having to put it in the backseat. Other than that it is handicapped Worthy. I carry people that have mobility issues and need to go with walkers. The comfort of the backseat and the roominess has been commented on. It doesn't have a lot of power but it does get to where you're going. With my high mileage type job it doesn't get as good of mileage as I would like. Overall though I really like the car.
So easy to drive. Don't need to be a computer expert to control heat, air, radio etc. Lots of room, big trunk. Love the looks, especially the front grill. Only problem is material on cloth seats seems sorta cheap, but put seat covers on all my vehicles anyway.
The safety features on this car impressed me from the beginning. The back up camera is awesome. Gas mileage is unbelievable and probably the best part. If your looking for something that will get you the most bang for your buck in mpg, this is it. Sometimes 40 mpg! Sound system is very nice. Sporty, modern, reliable.
