| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||I hated the standard-issue Michelin all-season radials. They would handle poorly on dry pavement and have very poor siping ability in rain and snow.

The Corolla continues to trundle on in its current form, largely unchanged since 1998 (with the exception of variable valve timing). I can't help but think that sales of the Corolla would be weakening if it wasn't for Toyota's strong reliability rating. Good bang for the buck, but not a very exciting car in most respects. If you prefer a very sporting compact, take a long look at the Nissan Sentra SE, with 145hp on tap.|
