Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2008 Corolla. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2008 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 2008 Corolla, our data for the Corolla is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Corolla's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

I have a 05 and 08 Toyota Corolla. Both have lost all hub caps. I see Corollas all over with multiple hubs missing. This is definitely a defect. Believe me they are everywhere missing hubs. These hubs are flying off for no good reason as we are driving down the road. I had one almost hit a person on the side of the road. If it hasn't happened, it will. Be warned. Toyota really needs to take care of this. I am a structural engineer and know when a piece of equipment is defective.

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Corolla. While driving 40 mph, he heard a winding sound coming from the front of the vehicle. The dealer replaced the tires; however, the failure continued to occur. Approximately four weeks later while driving 65 mph, the contact heard a winding sound. The dealer stated that the wheels caused the inner walls of the tires to disintegrate. In addition, they stated that the failure would be continuous because the tires and wheels were aftermarket and they refused to repair as part of the warranty. The failure mileage was 250 and current mileage was 3,828.
