"Pros: value, style & reliability Cons: too much play in the steering Minor cons: center console too low to use as an armrest, no adjustable intermittent wipers (intermittent, regular & fast speeds only), no key-fob trunk release. Would like to see ABS offered in the Corolla"

"I love my 2006 Toyota Corolla. It has great gas milage and rides comfortably for my 40 minute commute back and forth to work. It has NEVER let me sitting along the road. I have always taken this car in to be serviced at its scheduled time. The air conditioning and heater in this car is awesome. It air con. can cool you off in a few minutes! The most expensive repair I have ever had on this car was replacing the tires. It has held its value and I really hate to part with it! :("

"I bought this car before children and thought for sure I would only keep it for a couple of years. I was so wrong. It has been a wonderful car for the last 11 years and even had enough room for 2 kids in bulky carseats. Mechanically this car has been amazing, just the expected repairs and maintenance has been needed. The only thing I can complain about is the paint. I have seen several Corollas around the same year that have oxidized paint as well, but I guess that is to be expected since I didn't wax as much as I should have. Love this car!!!"

"I have had this car since it was new (2004). I have spent under $1,500 on minor repairs since it was bought. This car has been a reliability dream. Nothing fancy, but a solid car - I have been spoiled by the low maintenance of it."
