2005 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 012006

Corolla 4-cyl

I own a 05 Corolla xrs. I have had a problem with metal tearing issues. First one was the muffler bracket tore off and so my muffler was just hanging there. I had that welded at a muffler shop and it has fixed the problem for now. Second is my trunk latch, this is the part that is bolted to the body of the car that the trunk latches onto. This piece has completely tore out of the body, it has been rewelded a few times but it can't be welded anymore. I keep it tied closed and can't use my trunk. Now today 9-26-2007 is the last draw, the muffler bracket has completely broke in half and not were it was welded. I feel this is a very cheaply made car and will never buy a Toyota again. I am extremely disappointed and the dealer tells me it I out of warranty and they don't want nothing to do with it, I keep getting told to see a body shop. I don't have $1,000 to replace the rear panel of my car every time the trunk latch decides to tear out of the body because the metal is to thin.
