What Our Members Are Saying about Toyota Corolla Reliability and Durability

Reliability and Durability of the Toyota Corolla: 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
Nothing has broken yet, even after hitting a snow bank it was able to drive 15km home.
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
2008 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
As I said before... the reliability and durability of this car has amazed me so far - 70K miles and 5 years.
2008 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Not a single problem yet (1 year)
2007 4dr Sedan 126-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 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Bullet-proof reputation, ease & cost of maintenance
2006 4dr Sedan 126-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Owned for two years now, no repairs!
Reliability and Durability of the Toyota Corolla: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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 ...
