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
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

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

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

Rock solid....have owned it for almost 4 years now and haven't invested anything into it other than oil changes, a set of tires and washer fluid.

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.

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 ...

Not one, even minor, problem as of yet
2008 4dr Wagon turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have driven the car 25000 miles in 9 months and have not had a single problem. Only maintenance is oil changes and tire rotation.
2008 4dr Wagon turbocharged 260hp 2.0L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I have a 2008 HHR SS, and every time it needs a repair the parts are on INDEFINATE BACKORDER from GM and I have to phone random dealers across North America to find the parts myself. The quality of service from GM service shops are way below the quality of service I get at my normal shop. T Items replaced since I bought it new: 1 - Wiring harness failure 2 - Shifter linkage failure 3 - Shifter cables failure 4 - Stereo failure 5 - Sunroof failure 6 - Suspension bushings And now the bottom of the doors are rusty. Under warranty the first 3 years I had a Malibu loaner car a total of 8 weeks! Today this car has 46k on it and it feels like 200k. This car has proved to be very unreliable and I would never buy another Chevy again.

The 2007 Panel I had had great reliabilty and never gave me any trouble.

I have had it for 35,000 miles and have not had one issue. It has been flawless.
2007 4dr Wagon 175-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I have driven this car over 14,000 miles in less than a year and I have not had to take it back to the dealer for any repairs.
2007 4dr Wagon 175-horsepower 2.4L I4

Crash test rating.
2006 4dr Wagon 143-horsepower 2.2L I4

everything, had no problems.

For such a cheap car, this one has been very reliable. A few things, but nothing that surprised me, or was hard to fix.

I have had problems with GM engines. It is assembled in Mexico and has workmanship issues that relate back to reliability.
