Toyota Corolla Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I have given it a thrashing and nothing has broken. It is a Toyota so it probably wont be breaking any time soon. Interior components arent top of the line, but they are tough. Seat is firm and will likely last a good while.
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
60000 miles on odometer, only regular oil and oil filter changes (every 5000-6000 miles ) and air filter (once) so far. Start in the morning and then keep going
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
The most reliable car in its category.
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
This will be the 5TH Toyota that I have owned and all of them have given great service & reliability
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Nothing has broken yet, even after hitting a snow bank it was able to drive 15km home.
2008 4dr Sedan Not a single problem yet (1 year)
2008 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4

As I said before... the reliability and durability of this car has amazed me so far - 70K miles and 5 years.
2007 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Corolla has proven to be the most reliable car in Canada for many years. I owned other Toyotas before and was exteremly happy with the cost of ownership over a long period of time.
2007 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Bullet-proof reputation, ease & cost of maintenance
2006 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4

2010 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Had lots of wear on car and recent Toyota reliability reports made it risky to buy a Toyota even though I had reliable Toyota for years. Might buy one again when their are stable reliablity trend.
2009 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I am concerned about the EPS and the new engine design. Although some have disliked the EPS, the jury is still out for me. Plus, will it be reliable long-term? Also, I have read about some oil consumption problems. Hmm ...

Reliable car.
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
There are many good cars in this regard, but Honda is again one of the leaders, as well as having the least expensive parts for maintenance and repair, according to a CAA Survey a couple of years ago.
2008 2dr Coupe 205-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
It is a low maintenance, low cost to own, and long lasting small vehicle that can be driven "worry free".

CVT FWD

little things go wrong
2007 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4

Had an oil leak at 27,000 miles that required warranty work. It was a known problem. On returning home I found the engine grounding strap had not been reattached.
2007 2dr Coupe 205-horsepower 2.4L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Came off the lot with many rattles and squeaks. Had to have both rear bearings replaced and had a third gear issue. Had to have transmission rebuilt to repair 3rd gear.
2006 2dr Coupe 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Major rear suspension problems that Honda refused to correct under Warranty. Definately my last Honda. I had to replace the rear control arms out of my own pocket
