I traded my 2021 Corolla LE (60,000 miles) for a 2023 LE. I have about 2000 miles on the 2023 now. Some things I've noticed so far. Road noise is much louder than my 2021. Almost sounds as if a window is not fully closed however they are closed. The 2.0 engine has significantly better acceleration although It does seem to stutter, jerk or hesitate intermittently at lower speeds (Not sure if there is an issue or just the way the CVT operates.) Don't remember this issue on my 2021 LE with smaller engine and I put 60,000 miles on it.
The car handles well however it seems I can feel every bump in the road (reminds me of my 2018 Nissan Versa). I just took a 7 hour trip in 2023 and felt pretty beat up at the end of the day from the road. Again don't remember the 2021 being so bumpy. I've taken the same trip on the same road several times in the 2021 and it was not nearly as bumpy. Another thing I've noticed is the metal seems to be thinner imo than 2021 especially the roof. If you tap lightly on the roof it sounds hollow. My son still has a 2021 LE and it sounds and feels different. Not sure what the difference is.... ?
Driving: The seats feel more comfortable in the 2023 and the interior is comparable to my 2021. Jury is still out on the cruise control. Several concerning characteristics. The buying experience was typical. Had to haggle a little to get fair price for my 2021 and rest was typical of most dealerships. I will update this review as I gain more experience with my 2023. Other than the engine (which is loud) but more powerful, IMO I don't really see or feel many improvements. Maybe that was by design to keep the car at its price point? Idk... The only significant improvement I can think of so far is the air conditioner is much better in the 2023! Really cold and I often have had to turn it down on hot days. The 2021 AC was terrible and underpowered IMO.
I will never buy another Toyota again. This review isn't necessarily a reflection of the dealership, but with Toyota itself. I purchased the 2022 toyota corolla cross in Dec from the Fairfax location. I was very happy with the car until about 5 months later when one of the blue-tooth functions just stopped working. I can use my carplay for music & for the navigation, I can use the bluetooth for receiving & sending text messages & I can use the bluetooth to make calls, however, all of a sudden when I am on the phone & I use the touch screen or the button on the wheel the phone call will not disconnect. I have to go into my phone & turn off the bluetooth for it to disconnect the call. I paired my son's phone & it also does not work. I went to Chantilly location to see about this issue & they tried for 3 hours to update the software.
Even after all that they said it still did not work. I was told from the service dept they would have to put in a ticket w/ toyota for a fix. I called Toyota several times to report this issue. Every time I was told, "We are working on it." I am now told that they can't & will not fix this issue. They said that it has to be a problem with my phone. They want me to uninstall all of my apps, texts & pic to see if that is the issue. Toyota COULD CARE LESS about this problem. I am going to sell this POS & buy another car somewhere else.

I purchased a 2021 Toyota Corolla, who would have thought to test drive it at night. The driver side headlight while on dim there is a blind spot. Before you sign on the dotted line test drive at night!
I used to love Toyotas. Reasonably priced and very reliable. I bought my first Toyota in 1985. Had several since and never had an issue. Always loved the brand. Fast forward to 2022. Do they still make good cars? No, Toyota doesn't make good cars anymore. Worse, they don't stand behind their product. I bought a 2022 Corolla Hatchback in November 2021 from Bell Road Toyota in Phoenix. The car had 3000 miles because it was returned by the previous owner but sold as new. They said, "Don't worry, you are covered by Toyota warranty for 3 years 36,000 miles."
In June 2022, I notice a pipe hanging down scraping the ground in the right front. Turns out to be the sway bar which broke off on the inside of the bushing. No accidents, no crashes, not hitting anything. Toyota is refusing to honor the warranty. They say the bar couldn't have broken without outside force. No dents in the bar, just poor-quality parts. I called Toyota headquarters to complain. They stand behind the dealer and refuse to fix the car. I will never buy a Toyota again.
My 2006, Corolla, with only 89,000 miles needs a floor gear shift cable... Hasn't been located yet. Bought the car for its "long lasting ability". Sure...until one needs a replacement part! With no other source of transportation, have been waiting 2 weeks for the part to be found...
I am the original owner or 2009 Toyota Corolla, only 66000 miles. Most of time parked in garage. The weather here is not very hot or very cold. However, the clear coat starts peel off here and there, and looks ugly now. I had very old cars from other manufacturers, but have never found this kind of problem. The quality of Toyota cars is declining fast. If you think of Toyota, rethink!
I have Corolla, the Touch Screen get hard time to make adjustment and car like 1910 can't run, know is bad car specially CVT Transmission. I have Sienna interior falling apart, rip seat, sunroof rubber, etc.
I've got a 2011 Toyota Corolla, and it keeps running like a dream; this is a car worth its weight in gold. Talk about top quality, the Toyota Company has it, hands down! The gas mileage is fantastic with 43 miles to the gallon on the road. In town, it averages 35. My family and I wouldn't consider changing car brands.
I love my Corolla!! It runs well and has pretty good acceleration even though it's a four cylinder transmission. The last time I drove a four cylinder car was about thirty five years ago and it was scary trying to pick up speed to get on the expressway. My Corolla has very good acceleration for a four cylinder. I got it this past June in Austin Texas. It already had BlueTooth and a CD player in it. It also has the radio controls on the steering wheel so I'm not distracted when driving.
This car has some design flaws in my opinion. The auto bright lights is too slow to turn off. It turns off when oncoming car is maybe 2 car lengths away. The auto bright light fails to turn off for motorcycles and vehicles with one headlight out. Toyota service says there is no way to fix this. Between seat storage has this storage area that is useless..should hold pens or coins but just does not stay secured so it is useless..things just fly out of it when you open it and lid flops open.
