Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2007 Corolla. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2007 Corolla is that for months on end, the news media repeatedly told the public that several Toyota models have an unintended acceleration defect, & to go to (the NHTSA's website) to file a complaint.

So, the NHTSA received a disproportionate number of complaints about Toyota unintended acceleration issues because of the national news media attention, to the point where now the NHTSA data is unreliable taken in context with any other vehicle that did not receive national news attention. typically receives more complaints per day about vehicles than the NHTSA does, but the news media did not repeatedly say "go to to report your Toyota acceleration problems" like they did about the NHTSA -- so although we have less complaint data than the NHTSA for the 2007 Corolla, our data for the Corolla is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Corolla's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

2007 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #2

I leased this Toyota Corolla ce in May 2007 (new) & since that first day the driver's seat constantly moves out of position 1/2 inch or more in all directions.. every time I get in to the car I have to re-adjust the seat & I cannot figure out why this happens.. I hope no one ever hits me in the rear because the seat will move in some direction & out of alignment with the air bag if that even opens.. I thought I was the only owner with this problem until I just read another complaint for the same issue on the same vehicle.. I have filed 4 lemon law complaints on this vehicle for various issues including the tires & Toyota claims these complaints are all the result of 'design flaws' & refuses to fix any of the complaints & passes the tire problem off to Goodyear who then passes the problem back to Toyota.. this vehicle is the worse car I have ever owned and is a death trap even the seat belts don't work correctly..
