      I have this in Falcon Gray. Love it. Point A to point B. I bought the pre-production loaner. $17K out the door. There is nothing wrong with the door closing. It sounds fine.

      Actually the Corolla interior looks premium. There are tons of safety features standard, including a driver knee airbag, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning and assist, etc. I’ve been told the exterior looks like a mini Lexus. Everything about the car from the interior to the exterior feels solid and of high quality. I own a 2018 Corolla SE and love it. Don’t listen to what this guy says. If you want a reliable car for many years without problems, buy a Corolla. You won’t be disappointed.

      The car is attractive and its average in many things I can live with. However. Firm seats and can’t find a good spot is a deal breaker for me.

      Its an average car for an average buyer. You compare it to other cars that dont attract the same group of buyers. This is just an ol' reliable, you make it seem like it should be something more. The Corolla competes with other cars, but serves a simpler purpose: To get you to point A to point B. You talk down about it, but its just a car. You set your expectations too high.

      The road noise is completely out of hand. If you buy one, get it dampened, otherwise you will lose your hearing over time. I already had to set up an appointment with my hearing  doctor.

      6:09 - Bingo on the infotainment system score - I'd say it actually deserves a 1 star.

      Disagree with some items on the Corolla... 1st- doors do NOT close making "plastic noise" , NOT! 2ND- Has good pick up being its smaller engine than competitors. very descent.. 3rd- you cant go wrong with Toyota brand. Have had Hondas and I did not like. Toyota brand is # 1 in my book. Just pick your model!

      This guy didn't mention all the safety features like lane departure warning and steering wheel nudge, adaptive cruise control and pedestrian detection/ collision prevention. I feel like he was too negative about it.

      He clearly was bias and has a pre existing problem with this car. He doesn't understand the beauty of a Toyota/Lexus.

      Way to ruin a nice exterior design Toyota. Thanks for the detailed review Sam - comfort, material quality and design. Front looks like the crappy Prius design. I think the Honda Civic has a much better looking design appeal.

      The rear suspension crashes so hard I feel like I lost something from the back. I get that they build it for reliability but it is a total ripoff for what you pay.

      Like the RAV 4, this looks like a catfish in the front. It will be reliable, but it will not be much fun. Still, it will sell on it's merits alone, and that will be enough for most.

      They are discounting these big time....making them a pretty good deal at the LE/LE ECO level...pricier ones not so much

      That is not the top of the line Entune Audio. That is Entune Audio Plus and there is one tier above that has more apps and the integrated navigation. Inform yourself on a product before reviewing

      I bought my SE in November and loved it until it had a serious malfunction within a month, which included loss of acceleration and loss of brakes. Toyota couldn't figure it out and they were horrible about the entire thing. I'll never buy another Toyota again and highly suggest that anyone watching this and considering one look elsewhere.

      Toyota is not for car enthusiast like you. It is for those who need a dependable comfortable car that is super cheap to maintain. It will last you a lifetime easily.

      The gt 86 is 27k at base, most people can’t always afford it and the corolla top price is 22k the gt86 is more of an enthusiast car while the corolla isn’t, ive noticed most reviewers don’t get that the corolla isn’t an enthusiast car.

      other than color(s), is there anything else that makes it "special"...is Toyota limiting the number of 50th SEs? not that this would make me want to buy it especially since the xse is more 'eXciting'...I guess this is what happens when reputation/an idea sells the product and not the actual substance of the product...sad
