No surprises in finding Corolla on top of the list, it is truly the most reliable and moderately comfortable workhorse the other day I saw a Xli with the dish that is usually welded onto a breaking news channel vans. This shows the strength of the frame of the car and with less frequent and cheap maintenance it is no doubt a very good saloon.
