$2000 is way too much for an extended warranty, if you really must buy one shop around and get it for about half of that (genuine Toyota, not 3rd party). Personally, I think an extended warranty on a Corolla is a waste of money. If you want a bit of security place that $2000 in an interest bearing account and use it only if you have a need for an out of warranty repair (i.e. not regular maintenance or replacement of brakes/tires etc.). My guess is that 5 or 6 years from now you'll still have the money.

I live in Brooklyn, NY. I know that the Corolla gets geat fuel economy on the open highway but how many MPG can I expect in stop and go city driving with lights and stop signs at best and heavy traffic at worst?
#3819 of 4025 Auxillary Audio Input for 2007 Corollas?
Aug 04, 2006 (11:45 pm)
Does anyone know if any aftermarket AUX and iPod adapters fit both the standard stereo and the top line JBL system that includes the 6-disc CD changer in the 2007 Corolla?
I know USASpec makes some adapters, but it isn't clear if it works with the JBL system in the Corolla.
#3820 of 4025 Power Ports?

Where are the power ports located and do any of the them still work when the key is out of the ignition so you could leave a cell phone charging in the car while you park?

Anyone use the A/C in temps over 100 degrees? Is it a weak air conditioning system or adequate?

I've had my Corolla for a little over two years now and consistently get 25 MPG city in winter and summer. During the hot months I try to do without the a/c except for the recent heat wave. I drive easy without flooring or jack rabbit starts. I also live in Bklyn NY.

Do you drive mostly city? In my '96 Altima I get around 25 mpg when a drive on the highway a lot but in mostly city driving I will get 19-20 mpg.
Somehow I didn't think in Brooklyn that we would get the 35 mpg being reported by those in other places.

During the current Summer season and due to work reasons I've been doing a lot of city driving. When I drive on the highway I can get a bit over 30 MPH. Sometimes driving on the highway you hit traffic, but keeping it at 50-60 I have gotten 32 MPH. Through Bklyn streets and driving easy as I explained in my previous post, I've been getting 25 MPH. You know how tough it is to drive here. By driving easy I don't mean going more slowly than the flow of traffic.
I would think that your Nissan Altima has more horse power than my Corolla and therefore is thirstier. Because BP is shutting down its refinery in the US get ready to pay $4 a gallon in NY.

Earlier this summer i wrote about my trip to atlanta in a corolla rental. It was an 06 LE with auto and a 6 disk changer. The ac was great. When passing through Valdosta, GA, the corolla's external thermometer was reading 104ºF. IT WAS HOT!!! But luckily the ac in the corolla felt like the temperature was in the mid-high 70s. Did i mention we got from South Miami to Atlanta on 1 1/2 tank of gas and only cost $45?
Not bad, eh? The map shows from Miami to jacksonville and thats where we put in the 1/2 a tank. That got us from orange park to atlanta!
ps: we were going 70-90mph the whole time and the car handled excellent!!
#3826 of 4025 BEST CAR EVER!
Aug 09, 2006 (1:41 pm)
I've just had this car over a year, it has given me problems but I still love it. My dad bought it at an auction. Right now, its having problen with the steering- it needs another alignment, the muffler makes noise when I increase speed... and thats it. But before! New water pump, balljoints, entire exhaust got replaced, tires got worn out easily, new axles and so much more. But luckily it has never left me stranded! I would never buy a new car for this one. I only wish it could speed faster. All i need to do now is update the sound system, re- paint it at Maaco, tint the glass and its all good! This car is in memory of the car that was going to be lended to me by my dad. It was also a Toyota Corolla but from the year 1986. Sadly some bandits decided to set it on fire. These cars are still around because they are that good.
