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.

Corolla 4-cyl

As I approached traffic lights, I had to apply the brakes as yellow light was on but the car was still accelerating. Even after the brakes were completely applied, it went forward. To my bad, it was a snowy day in my place and my car skidded in to the left turn lane, got crashed in to the other car. My car's front bumper, head lights and couple of other parts were replaced for which I have spent $500 out of my pocket and the remaining amount was paid by my insurance company. Luckily there were no injuries to me, my 7 month pregnant wife and the other car driver. Obviously my insurance premium got increased, my driving history was affected and car value is decreased due to accident history. My car tires and brakes were in perfect condition when this incident happened. Now I am afraid to drive my car especially when it approaches traffic lights I feel extremely nervous. Whenever I recollect this bad moment I feel depressed. Please look into the issue. Requesting Toyota to do the needful to remove such defects from their vehicles.
