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.

- the contact owns a 2007 Toyota Corolla. When attempting to shift gears he would depress the brake pedal and the clutch simultaneously. The contact feels this problem is occurring due to the clutch and the brake pedal being too close to each other. The contact also stated he has a problem depressing the clutch due to a hump located on the floor board next to the clutch. The manufacturer stated that that was the design of the vehicle. The current mileage was 3,000 miles.
