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.

Yesterday our 2007 Toyota Corolla(13,000) stopped dead in flow of traffic on a highway-luckily we merged to shoulder narrowly missing being hit by traffic. The car was fixed w/ a new computer system. Checking if others had this problem it turns out that diagnostic code P0607 has a very bad & significant history with 2007 Corolla-cars just die!!! but no recall. We almost died and similar situations have been reported.

My 2007 Toyota Corolla just quit running and I was stranded in the middle of rush hour traffic. Three men pulled over to help me. One stopped traffic while the other two pushed me out of traffic into a nearby parking lot. I called aaa, who sent a truck which towed me to tao auto in cary, nc. Tao auto told me Monday that it was a computer problem, so I had my car towed to fred anderson Toyota in raleigh, nc. Fred anderson said the computer in my car had malfunctioned, so they replaced it under warranty. They were prompt and courteous. This is a dangerous type of failure - had it happened ten minutes earlier, I would have been stranded in the middle lane of five lanes of heavy traffic on I-40, all moving at about 70 mph. I could have been killed along with other people in the cars around me.
