Arrived in Orlando and needed a rental car for a business trip. They gave me this 09 Corolla LE automatic in gray on gray. It drives well enough around town with it's loose steering and soft ride. The seats are soft and fairly comfortable but lack side support on long drives. The interior was a dull sea of gray which I find boring but at least it seemed better put together than a 08 Yaris that I drove a month prior to this car. The dash is at least located where it's supposed to be unlike the Yaris which puts the instruments over in the center leaving a large hunk of plastic facing the driver. The mileage was good but the 1.8 liter engine lacks punch and note that Toyota still uses an old fashioned 4 speed automatic with this car. My biggest concern with this car, also with the Yaris, is the poor high speed instability in cross wind. The limp steering and mushy handling do not inspire confidence and the lack of cruise control in a 17K car is lamentable. Overall I liked it better than the aweful Yaris because of it's better designed interior and larger size and the fuel mileage was similar but even still this car screams rental car with it's dull plain exterior styling, sea of gray interior, dull pickup and wishy washy handling.
