A temporary-use spare is under the floor. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the front air bags, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

You'd think this would make for more backseat legroom, but that's not what I experienced. The Corolla is easy to drive, with straightforward controls, minimal distractions, and a comprehensive list of standard safety equipment.
Fact: We Finance All Credit Scores!!! The recall began on October 27, 2014. It feels like a small version of a Camry, more like a small car than an econobox, the big car made small. This engine is happy to rev, and a sweet shifting six-speed automatic is available as an option. It's easier to steer when parking than some competitors, but at highway speeds the steering wheel has a dead range of a few degrees from the center position that allows the car to wander too much, requiring frequent corrections, which can be fatiguing over time. Curbside Motors is very proud to offer this superb 2010 Toyota Corolla. Safety features that come standard on all Corolla models include six airbags: dual frontal, front side-impact for torso protection , and side-curtain airbags for head protection.
The Toyota Corolla has always featured safe styling, but the current generation is certainly a little more daring than previous ones. Corollas have historically proven to be reliable cars and are less expensive to insure. Send Joe an Hide full review. The recall began on July 14, 2016. Completely redesigned for the 2009 model year, the Corolla carries over with more safety equipment standard for 2010. In any case, it's immediately recognizable as a Toyota, and from behind as a Corolla.
The Corolla boasts the popularity typical of a model sold for more than 30 years — but not the quality. Another case of piling on? In the United States, the Corolla nameplate is the second oldest in the line after the Land Cruiser. Interior Features The Corolla has a comfortable, pleasant interior. The base model has wind-up windows and manual door locks, and hardly anyone buys it. On the upside, it's soft and not uncomfortable, but I wouldn't want to sit that way for long.

The Corolla has six standard airbags, including frontal, side-impact in the front-seat backrests and curtain airbags. This is not the type of car that is going to make you stand out from the crowd. Two of the 2010's shortcomings — interior space and quality — can't be changed dramatically from year to year; it requires a full redesign, for which the Corolla will wait at least three additional model years.
One question people often ask is whether rolling down the windows saves more fuel than blasting the air conditioner. The Corolla competes in a crowded field with the Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Hyundai Elantra and Chevrolet Cobalt, to name a few. This is the kind of thing Toyota used to do well — arguably better than anyone else in its price range. I found the ride reasonable for the class, though there's some shudder in the structure that I didn't notice in a Civic and Nissan Sentra I drove back-to-back, and the body jiggles about on a shorter-than-average wheelbase. The ventilation controls, though simple to understand and use, have a cheap feel as well. One called it floaty, and I'm not sure that's universally negative.

The Corolla is inexpensive to buy and operate yet it doesn't feel like a cheap car. Outward visibility from the driver's seat is quite good, the narrow pillars paying dividends in lane-change over-the-shoulder glances. In low-speed driving, where you expect the wheel to return to straight ahead on its own as it unwinds out of the turn, you will be doing more of the work.
