2017 Toyota Corolla SE Review and Price



I’ve put almost 27,000 miles on this car in a bit over a year. Still looks nearly brand new. I’ve had no mechanical issues, only issues are punctured tires (blame where I live). It has pretty decent pickup for an economy car, gets a pretty reliable 33 mpg city and 38-43 mpg highway. I’ve gone as far as 420 miles on one tank of gas. It is comfortable, has a ton of safety features, and for $21,000 off the lot I’ve been very pleased with it.

Pros-good mileage, reliable, comfortable, good trunk space, relatively quiet, terrific LED lights, good body styling.

Cons-stereo/computer OS is a bit clunky (I really wish they had Apple CarPlay), back seat leg room is pretty small, backup camera guidelines don’t “turn” as you turn (fixed guidelines), plastic front grille is a bit low and the finish started to peel in car wash. These are all minor issues.

For what you get (lane assist, pre-collision warning, radar cruise control, auto high/low beam headlights, tons of airbags, auto and manual w/paddle shift CVT transmission, super bright LED headlights and running lights, very nice interior trim and leather/cloth combo seats) you’d expect to pay closer to $30k for this car. It is a real bargain, a good quality car at a very affordable price.
