Good Value Option logo 3/5/2015 jvg27

The good: The Corolla LE provides a great value. There are a ton of high-end features that make it comfortable and economical. The car rides smoothly and I have averaged 33 MPG in mostly city driving. Overall, a great ride so far.The "other": I find there are quite a few major blind spots. In addition, the steering wheel does not travel far enough forward. The armrest is either too small, or too low, or just a poor design because I can't get comfortable on it.Lastly, and most concerning, I find that the car wonders. My previous Jetta tracked straight as an arrow. This car will just wonder off without warning. I really don't care for that aspect of the driving character.

Favorite Feature : Gas mileage, stereo, interior styling, seats comfort, price/value, mileage display, automatic climate control. I love the quiet engine (as long as you don't rev it), and I love the CVT - although it does take some getting used to.

Suggested Improvement : Heavier steering with a greater on-center feel would do this vehicle wonders in my opinion. Keeping it in a straight line is more work than it should be. Otherwise I'd just like to see an inch or two more of steering wheel travel and an adjustable armrest. Overall, the Corolla remains an outstanding value - just a few minor changes would make it perfect for me.

Average Rating : 4.25
