Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent price, quality and MPG's, good interior room even for a guy that's 6'5" tall.
Cons: Uhh...umm...well...a telescoping steering column and an mp3 input would be nice.
The Bottom Line: Absolutely recommend this car to anyone, hands-down over the competition for high MPG and quality.

We bought our 2006 Corolla in August 2006.  We now have over 40,000 miles on it.  We had been without a good commuter car for a couple of years, and we were definitely tired of refueling the 2002 Suburban that we had for daily commuting.  ... read more

Oct 6, 2006 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Good basic transportation for the non-enthusiast.
Cons: Sloppy finish on visors. Hesitation when accelerating.

I took my 1999 Cadillac Seville STS in to the dealer for scheduled maintenance yesterday afternoon. As a courtesy, the dealer gave me a loaner car so I could get to work. Usually, they give me a Cadillac, but they were fresh out of Cadillacs. The dealer ... read more
