At 32 mpg overall, this generation Corolla's fuel economy was among the best we'd measured in any conventional car with an automatic transmission, other than a hybrid or a diesel. The manual transmission model gets the same fuel economy as the automatic. The pleasant and refined Corolla provides a comfortable ride, an improved driving position, and a roomier rear seat, compared with the previous model.

What Owners Say

"Acceleration is under all criticism! Not powerful enough for mountain driving or passing cars."

JAN B., CA (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"The Corolla has a good balance of power and handling, with reasonably good acceleration while keeping up with traffic, entering freeways, etc. While not a sports car, it handles nicely on curvy roads, etc."

PETE M., WA (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"Just to note that steering was (for me) unacceptable until steering computer was replaced, to make the electric assist feel more like a traditional hydraulic power steering (in 2010). Ok now, but still wanders a bit more than many other cars, but is definitely acceptable now."

K S., CA (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"My comfort level is pretty low with the acceleration of this car, especially when passing or merging."

Anonymous, NC (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"We had cruise control installed, and that made a world of difference in driving on long trips. Otherwise this is a "Plain Jane" car - no electronic window adjustments, no inside rear view adjustment and no automatic door locking/unlocking.."

Anonymous, KS (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"Our best example of the good of this is the following: We just returned from a 6,000 mile trip to 6 National parks in the West and Canada. In the Western states where the speed limit is 75mpg, we were able to cruise all day at about 82 mpg for days on end, up into higher altitudes and up and down as the terrain changed. Through Mt. Helens, Olympic, North Cascades, Glacier, and Banff National Parks our Corolla never faltered, and navigated the roads easily, which could have given problems. We"

SHERRY H., WA (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"Handling misses the mark in that it behaves like a larger vehicle than it is."

"Not great pickup on highways or hills."

Anonymous, WA (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"Excellent value for the money, reliability, and fuel economy. Good acceleration and handling but not as nimble or fun to drive as my 2005 Honda Civic. Leg room versus distance to reach steering wheel doesn't fit my body well - either too little leg room or a bit of a stretch to reach the wheel - but better than earlier Corollas."

"Handles well"

Anonymous, KY (2010 Toyota Corolla)

Gary W., TX (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"Well it's great on gas. I wouldn't say acceleration is its best feature but doable. Handlong is good but not so good on stopping short in an emergency. Car can't handle sudden stops well. But all and all its a good value."

Michael V., NY (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"Very Good"

Doris N., CA (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"There was a faulty chip which caused the car to stall unexpectedly at any speed. Apparently, the accelerator and brake were activated simultaneously. The problem was fixed and was covered by the certified used car warranty. But I was lucky not to have been involved in an accident."

"very poor acceleration"

J B., NY (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"It doesn’t accelerate as quickly as I would expect for an S model which implies it’s a sports model....which would imply it might go fast. Fast is not this car. And it seems like there is something making the rpm’s stall momentarily during accelerating. The steering is too touchy as well. If your not super careful you might run off the road when looking at a road to the the side."

Anonymous, AK (2010 Toyota Corolla)

"Handling is good. Acceleration is average for such a car but need to allow enough room to get up to speed. Wish it had a little more if a tight situation occurs. Turning off AC in summer helps to gain some speed. I have done this on occasion. Braking decent."

There's 152K miles on it and it has never been repaired (big surprise - I don't expect a repair until the car hits the 250K mark and then it's only minor repairs. At this point I give them to a under privileged person who needs a reliable car). The other thing that makes this car a great value is that it averages 36-37 MPG."

"This car has been a gem. I take it for servicing twice a year, change my tires and update brakes every 4-5 years, have bought one new battery, and that's about it. The digital display on my radio/CD player is starting to fade, probably more due to heat here, and that will be the first part I've had to replace in 9 years. Excellent service on any recalls. Most years, I have spent less than $100.00 plus gas on the car."
