My Corolla was a good value but I was surprised by a couple things I would have expected would be better from Toyota.

Why the 2013 Toyota Corolla?

Exterior styling

This is a very nice car to look at inside and out.

Fuel economy

Fuel economy is impressive though you pay a small price in power.

Safety & braking

I am very impressed with the breaking and handling is secure for the price. It is a bit light and can be pushed around in the wind.

Front seat support & comfort

This is a very comfortable car for driver and passengers.

Why Not the 2013 Toyota Corolla?

Audio & nav systems

The audio has a few major flaws. The electronic radio comes on before you are able to control it so you may get blasted if you left the radio too high and you will have to wait to control the volume until it lets you. Bluetooth integration is actually pretty good but the menus for funtion control are a bit too tedious and require too long to navigate.

Feature availability

It is simply silly that you have one touch window control for the driver but not the others.

Materials & workmanship

I was shocked at how some of the small trim began to peal aroun the door handles and how cheap the plastic of the console and dash seemed to be.

Controls and instruments

The tilt steering does not support a person with long legs and short arms well.

Powertrain performance

They try to moderate the price you pay in power by gearing if you press the accelerator all the way but the gear ratios are not smooth.
