It's small enough so you aren't lugging around a hunk of metal but the space inside the vehicle itself is outstanding. It's great on gas, which come on, in this economy is great. I travel a lot too so I am definitely glad I got this vehicle. It's saving me a lot money. Plus I live in a place where it's common to see negative numbers every day in the winter and it does not take long for it to warm up or even cool down in the summer when I am in the south
I would recommend this car to anyone who has the same driving and space requirements I do. I wanted a reliable, comfortable, economical and yes, cute little car and I got it. It seems just perfect for me. Most of my driving is short trips around town, but when I get out on the freeway, my little Corolla hums along with traffic. Mileage has been good. I have had the car a little less than five months and still love it like I did on the day I bought it.
I have this car for a long term rental due to my car being stolen and things being tied up with insurance related to that. I cannot wait to give it back and get something else. Pros: - Pretty cool perks for being such a cheap car, it has bluetooth, a screen for media, a back up camera/sensors, etc. - Reliable. Has yet to leave me stranded somewhere. Cons: - I average about 26mpg. My Honda CR-V was a bigger car and had 4WD, and it got about the same gas mileage. - Road noise. You can expect to have to shout to your passengers. - Instability/non-responsive drive. If you live some place windy this gets annoying and feels unsafe. - Uncomfortable front seats, very small and uncomfortable backseat. My kids and coworkers both hate it.
