    My car

    It has good points: it's very well built and has excellent cabin quality with fantastic space, an ergonomic dashboard and good equipment. I also like the engine, it is very smooth to drive.

    The major shortcomings of the Corolla, however, are the stiff suspension, the small boot space and the poor fuel economy. The boot is ridiculous - way too small for its class. I've also noticed too much vibration.

    All in all, not as good as advertised.

    My car

    Great all round vehicle except on ice or snow - hit a slight incline, and the Corolla goes nowhere. I suspect insufficient weight at front end.

    This is a problem I have heard several Corolla owners complain of. Toyota should fix it.

    My car

    Excellent car to drive, have owned this pre-owned car for 18 months and I am very happy with it.

    We had to have the engine replaced under manufacturers warranty due excessive oil consumption. This was carried out with minimal fuss.

    All in all this is a very good car to own and drive, have just completed 1400 miles in 5 days driving around Scotland.

    I have this car from Wed 22nd june and I like it a lot so far. Not as good as the Mazda6 I had to give up, but better than the Rover 45 that I replaced it with.
