2001 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

Driver was trying to park the car, thus the car was travelling at very low speed. Car suddenly surged after the driver applied the brake. Car went over the cement tire stopper, up a small hill, hit a wall, and stopped. This cannot possibly have been caused by the driver hitting the accelerator pedal. This is a serious safety problem. We will contact the dealer and the manufacturer on July 16, 2001.

I visited several Toyota dealers because I am helping a friend in bying a new Corolla. Despite I advise her to include the safety fetaures: Side airbags and ABS no dealear make them available if not increasing the lease by 50% (while the increase in value is about 10%) and asking to wait 3 months. Making so practically impossible to have them. Some dealers reached the point to say that those items are not available on the Corolla. Such a behaviour it is not acceptable. Car manufacturers are supposed to promote the sensibility toward safety not to boycott it.
