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.

Fuel tank protector band on the sub assembly rusted and broke off -.the 2 remaining bolts held. If it would have completely fallen off the car behind us could have hit it and we would not be aware that the assembly to protect the fuel tank was missing.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Corolla. The contact stated that the strap that held the heat shield and the fuel tank fractured. The fuel tank and heat shield were attached to the vehicle by a very small portion of the strap. The contact was concerned that the vehicle would possibly catch on fire or explode if driven over a massive road bump. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who was unable to determine if the failure was caused by a manufacturing defect. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure who filed a complaint. The failure and current mileage was 53,138.
