"I love my Corolla. It has been a good car for me. I have had little problems. The water pump and serpentine belt had to be replaced which were covered as it was a certified car. I also had to have brakes done in front but that is all the expenses except for new tires and air filters. Very satisfied."
"2 days and 225 miles after I bought the car, the check engine light came on. Took it back, they said since its not on at the moment to come back when it was. 2 days later it came on again. The fix is an internal engine part. Complained enough to get another 08 corolla as a loner. The tire pressure light is on on the loaner and the pressure is fine. Then, another indicator came on that I have never seen before. Don't have a clue what it is.
Stay away from the 2008 corolla, evidently it has its problems.
I plan to cut my losses and trade in a few months. I want my indestructable Civic back."
Pros: "Economical, fairly roomy for a sub-compact car"
Cons: "front rotors/pads seemed to wear out easily"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"Very reliable car - if you maintain it (oil changes, fluid changes, etc.). I owned this car for 11 years and had no major problems with it. It also had a good trade-in value as Toyota does not depreciate as fast as other makes out there. This was my trusted and reliable friend."
