CarComplaints.com Notes: There must have been something in the water at the plant where they built the eighth generation Corollas, especially the 1998 and 1999 model years.

Outside of airbag problems being reported to NHTSA, this is about as dependable a car as you’ll find. But good luck finding one; owners say they want a new car, but can’t justify trading in their Corolla because the darn thing just keeps rolling.

This has been incredibly annoying - a real pain in the ass! ALL of the door handles of my vehicle have broken off. Twice! Interior and exterior handles keep breaking and I have had to replace them twice each. It's about $20 bucks per handle. Really stinks. Other than that, I love my car!
