2004 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

I heard a loud pop when driving at 25 mph then something started grinding all the way home. My husband checked the wheels and noticed the driver rear had to much negative camber. Checked and notice that two bolts were missing from the rear hub assembly that hold it the axle and the two that were left were very loose that I was lucky the wheel didnt fall out. He checked the passenger side hub assembly and all bolts were loose, he re- torque all bolts to 45 ft lbs as recommend and added blue locke tight tothe bolts and ordered new bolts for the driver rear. Rear hub assemblies are original never been touched. Thanks

The contact owns a 2004 Toyota Corolla. The contact stated that while driving 55 mph the vehicle was jerking and making a loud noise. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the lug nuts had become loose and recommended the wheels be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure but did not offer any assistance since the vehicle surpassed the statute of limitations. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 74,000 and the current mileage was 79,000.

I started hearing a humming, vibration noise coming from my wheels in November 2007. I took it into the dealership and they replaced the wheel bearings on the R/F. this happened again and again... January 2008 - L/F wheel bearings replaced. June 2008 - R/F wheel bearings replaced. March 2009 - R/F wheel bearings replaced. The noise gets worse at higher speeds and makes me very concerned for my safety.

My car has been making a loud noise, especially when driving over 40 mph. I took it to the dealership and I was told the car needs a replaced rear wheel, bearing, and hub. My car is a 2004 with only 40,000 miles. I've seen that there was a recall for 2002 Corollas with a similar problem.

Took my 2004 Toyota Corolla le to dealer with complaint of steering wheel vibration at 60-70 mph. Dealer stated that I needed spacers (rings) installed on my wheels (when I bought the car I ordered the option of alloy wheels and apparently the dealer never installed them to fit properly.
