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 #1

It starts with the car not feeling like it is receiving fuel to the engine, then a couple of weeks later, it just dies and won't start back up. First time I was stopped at a red light, it just died and I had it pushed to the side of the road. I left the vehicle and returned half an hour later in which it did restart. I had the vehicle towed to the Toyota dealership in which it turns out found that it was a censor that was bad and replaced. The second time it stalled on me, again, I could tell that fuel wasn't getting to the engine in short intervals. Then a couple of weeks later, I was traveling at a speed of 55 mph when it just died and wouldn't start back up at all. It was towed again to the Toyota dealership where they say it was a blown fuse. In both instances there is "power" to the vehicle. The radio, air, wipers, flashers, etc all work fine. But the engine doesn't work.
