2009 Toyota Corolla Seat Room and Comfort: Pros

2010 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
I am 6 foot tall, 250 lbs and have plenty of room in the front seat. The driver's position holds me well and i do not feel like i am falling out of the seat when cornering. The passenger seat sits higher than i want, but there is plenty of room there as well. see full Toyota Corolla review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2009 Toyota Corolla

2009 Toyota Corolla Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan 132-horsepower 1.8L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Toyota has never really made a performance model. The 1.8 I4 is good for slow, city driving, but on the highway, acceleration and passing is more of an issue. Competition performance is non existant. There is a 2.4 I4 which adds a meager amount of horsepower, but not enough to keep with competitors. The "sport" model has some silly plastic bits and fog lights added. see full Toyota Corolla review

I found it jerky and it seemed to hesitate before shifting or starting up see full Toyota Corolla review

2009 Toyota Corolla Tires: Pros

The tires have lasted 5 years and 70K miles (but need to be replaced soon). Compare this with our Nissan Versa which we bought a year later. Its tires needed replacement after 37K miles. Toyota apparently uses a higher quality tire. see full Toyota Corolla review
