We are living in a golden age for automobiles right now.

Quality across the board has never been higher. You can count on one hand with fingers left over the number of cars, trucks or SUVs that will give you any serious problems in the first 100K to 150K miles.

There are simply no bad choices in the B, C, or D segments. They really are all that good. It comes down to preference and what you want - which is a damn awesome place to be. In the CUV/SUV department for compact and midsize it is the same. There just isn't a bad choice out there. In the fullsize segment there is really only the Nissan Armada with questionable reliability, everything else again really shouldn't give you any trouble for the first 100K to 150K miles.

We're in an era where 300 HP is common, mid-20's combined MPG is just a given, and strong reliability is pretty much just expected.

Sure the Corolla is pretty boring and primitive in its class, but it isn't a "bad" car - there would be nothing wrong in buying one, or a Ford Focus, or a Chevy Cruze, or a Mazda3, or a Honda Civic, or a...

Awesome, ain't it!
