I have a 1994 Toyota Rolla. I purchased this vehicle New in Yuma Arizona. With 3 babygirls this was the Family car. Its now 2006, I live in Oxon Hill Maryland and my now senior highschool daughter drives the same toyota she grew up in. At 165K, shes still running strong. Plus get this. I work at the DC DMV Vehicle Inspection Station. A gentlemen came in with a 1994 toyota corolla with 375K miles on the original engine. Still running good and looks clean too. TOYOTA COROLLAS FOREVER:shades:

Corolla is more sporty, better pick up speed, you can take exits at faster speed than camry, its steering wheel is lighter especially compared to Camry 20011 which i rented and drove few days back. I sold my camry 1999 but would say without any doubt it is lighter to drive especially its steering wheel as compared to new 2011 camry. I rented for two weeks toyota corolla 2011 and for two weeks camry 2011 but would say liked corolla drive much more vs camry. Though fuel consumption on log drives is almost same for both cars, corolla gives 34 and camry gives 30 mpg. I kept corolla 1996 for two years and loved it as well as camry 1999 kept for two years loved it too. One major thing which i missed in corolla was that, there was no cruise control therefore in long drive it becomes tiring for right leg. If kid will be sitting on your rear seat than better have camry for more leg space. I am 6 feet tall. I bought camry 1999 84K miles in 2009 and drove it for two years and sold it 131K miles. I never had to spent a single buck on its maintenance except routine maintenance line oil ch, brake pads, timing belt change. It is very smooth to drive but did not like 2011 camry drive it felt too heavy that is like accord drive. I am currently renting a 2011 civic from few days but without any doubt would say that corolla 2011 (which i rented few days back for two weeks) drove much better than civic and is more stable, its seating and view is better than civic and less noisy than civic. Felt corolla more comfortable vs civic.

It was very thoughtful of you to drop in and share your experiences with our members; however, just so you know - you responded to a post from 2006. I suspect that member has made his/her decision by now.
No harm... I'm sure your post will be helpful to those currently trying to decide!

Actually, that is just what I was looking for. I am comparing a Camry with a Corolla and I think I am going with a Corolla (as long as the dealer can find one for me! I think it is a little sportier and a little better gas mileage. No kids to cart around so I think it will be perfect for me. thanks!

Camry has better acceleration than Corolla. Corolla, yes, a little better gas mileage.

I agree with you people like Camry because it is safer than the Toyota Corolla
