My take on the corolla..yes, it is a solid car, but the steering felt waaay too numb. It did not have the "Feel" of driving a Nissan. When I was out car shopping about two years ago, I was looking at a whole broad range of cars, from the corolla to the Sentra, to the Fuckus..err Focus, but after driving all of 'em. The Sentra felt right. It was decent-looking, backed by a reputable auto maker, and it was just right for me . Also, the corolla, all it looks like is a miniature camry, and that is just bland as hell.
