- Acceptable mpg, period.
- The price is too too much for a slightly above average car...
It's just acceptable... But keep in mind, I have an old nissan Pathfinder 93' prior to owning this car. I owned it no more than a month and I found I have already holding some grudges against it (current odo reads 700 mi).
The fuel economy is definitely higher but just barely acceptable (after all I am comparing this new model to my old nissan.)
I shove out so much (not to mention the premium of auto-insurance got skyrocket!!!) and the only Pros worth mentioned is the better mpg... My old nissan PF was out of alignment, thus must hold tight on the steering all the time! This new car however gets my nerve as I have to do the same thing and barely have the chance to relax.. you know driving with single arm . The service guy said it's just caused by the uneven slope of the road or perhaps the tire, just check it myself... Fine, whatever!
There's nothing really impressed me compared to older model of corollas... Last thing, the trunk has bigger space... but it sacrifices the back seat, there's no way to fit taller persons in the car. Including interest rates, I spent about $28k + on this car... My conclusion: DON'T LOOK AT IT TWICE; it's just a decent car with a brand....read morehide

- looks good, toyota sales hip is very good, but not a word of truth in it.
- Road noise, engine noise, seats are awfull quality of materials very poor
2007 COROLLA CE now has 4500 miles on it. average mpg 26/ 32. I am 66years old so it is not abused. Local deaalers still advertising 41 mpg, don't fall for that. The 126HP is so week I have to turn off the A/C GOING UP HILLS AND PASSING. My dealer Bill Penny Toyota in
Huntsville,Ala . told me "well so of them get good milage and some of don't. Nothing he can do. Tires are out of balance and they did try
but could not fix the problem. Service guy said I had a bad tire ??
take to goodyear, goodyear said nothing wrong with the tires ??
So much for famous Toyota Warrenty and service. I had ford that had 12,000 on it no problems and the only problem I had was fixe the first time and fixed right, they replaced the tires at 3,000 miles.
Now that is quality. I think consumer union car test people are on toyota's payroll. THEY SAID THIS CAR HAS A QUITE CABIN. Man that
tester must have had his radio on rap music turned up as lout as it could go ??? If this is car is what toyota calls quality then beware of
all the cars they build. Not very good car comfort and road and engin noise and poor gas milage that is what you get and you paky $2500.00 more than the other cars in this class....read morehide

- Poor fuel economy
- Ride is to rough, road noise from tires is really bad, don't drive on a rough road surface.
I am so disapointed in this car. I am most disipointed with the auto test articles the writers put out. Where do these guys live. This car is
horrable in every way. Since I hate so much and canot get over 30mpg
on the hwy. and 25 in the city I have droven this cars compitation.
And Lancer, Nissian, and chev. and ford focus are all = to if not better.
Toyota in not in the class with the Honda Civic. I think toyota should have stayed in Japan because the quality of materials in this car is flea market brands. The most uncomfortable seats in the insustry.
Max distance I can drive is 200 miles then I have quite my back
is killing me. The cramped Cabin is horrable.
I wish I could find one thing about the Corolla I could say is average
but to be honest I cannot do that. Please do not belive the Toyota
hip they put in the car adds and the company brosures.
You can beat this car. The 126HP feel like a Brigs & Stratton lawn more
It sluggish and under powered for todays driving requirement.
Good luck i have 2007 CE FOR SALE AT A DISCOUNT PRICE....read morehide

- fuel economy was fine interior was well arranged
- very rough ride alot of wind noise at speed
you need to be a midget to get into the vehicle, there is no shoulder room in front, the seats do not ajust enough for long legged people the steering wheel doesn't have enough movementto give you a comfortable position. you should put a sign on the vehicle if you are over 5'10" don't buy this car or try to drive it. The wind noise on the expressway drowns out the radio...read morehide

- Don't think of any?
- Not sure if this Corolla is made in China?
I am not fully satisfied with the quality build of the Corolla because somehow I believe this car is made in China were Toyota mass produce to sell more cars. Some other manufacturers like Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Mazda still makes them in Japan, not like the big three; Toyota, Honda and Nissan were they are made in China....read morehide

- Good fuel economy.
- INFERIOR and far behind international Corolla
All fine; But Toyota North America has taken US and Canadian consumers for a ride for past 12 years with decontented and inferior product. I brought 99 corolla after having 3 generations of international corollas' overseas. Tonnes of problems, primarily suspension which is still an achilles heel in 2008 model.
Hopefully, new model to be brought out in 2008 will be in line with international model - FINALLY unless US Designers butcher it again.
Had to go to court to have all issues rectified. Mine was the 1st vehicle in North America to have a this issue rectified; windscreen replaced, tyres replaced, brakes and rotors replaced, seats squeeked, etc.
North American consumers dont know anything better because they have not had the choice of having owned thse international models. What better way of milking the public to a brand name....read morehide
