Warranty

Toyota supports the Corolla with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, as well as a five-year/60,000-mile drivetrain warranty.

Despite previous problems, Road and Track sums up the majority view that the Corolla "is a remarkably reliable and thrifty little mode of transport." Edmunds further emphasizes that "no manufacturer is better known for building stalwart, reliable cars than Toyota." Similarly, U.S. News reviewer Rick Newman says, "If there were such a category, the Corolla would probably dominate the awards for 'the car you'd most like to send your daughter to college with,'" but later concedes, "If my daughter were ready to head off to college, well, I might end up keeping this car for myself."
