What should I look for in a used Toyota Corolla hatchback?

The Toyota Corolla enjoys a reputation for good, solid reliability and it's been well proven with strong results in the JD Power Reliability Survey. The Warranty Direct Reliability index paints a positive picture, too, with an exceptionally low fault rate.

Despite all this, there are still things to look out for, and also a number of recall issues that you need to make sure have been addressed.
