The later you can afford the better, particularly as the 2010 model is quite an old car now, without even considering the possibility of an issue with the gearbox.

How to make a Toyota Corolla faster?
The best way to make a Toyota Corolla faster is to trade it in on a Subaru WRX or Volkswagen Polo GTI. While Japanese cars are known to be loved by boy racers for their easy ability to hot up, the last few series of Toyota Corolla have next to no options for hot-up parts as these cars focus on excellent reliability rather than tar-burning performance. If you have a need for speed, consider looking to the Subaru WRX for a practical four-door Japanese go-fast car, or a Volkswagen Polo GTi for a fast car at a similar price point to a Corolla.
Will Volkswagen fix problems if a car that is out of warranty?
It would appear you’ve got a good claim against VW for repairing the car, even though the warranty has expired. Remember, the car is still covered by the statutory warranty under local law. It is most likely to be the same problem that has reappeared; if it is it’s a well known one. Go back to VW through the dealer and ask for the problem to be fixed again.
Why is my 2013 Volkswagen Polo GTi going into limp mode?
The lack of performance you’re feeling is when the car goes into ‘limp’ mode because it has detected a problem. Take it to your VW dealer and have them run a diagnostic check on it, which should identify the cause of the problem.
