Toyota Corolla S 2010 [xxx] with extra stabilizer bar kit, purchased 11-30-09 with delivery in 12/09. 1) approximately 1 month after purchase, the car starting to veer sharply right then left when driving on the highway, it was/is difficult to control requiring a tight grip on the wheel. It feels like strong winds are moving the car but winds are absent and road conditions are normal. This event comes and goes unexpectedly, generally lasts the duration of my commute once started, sometimes occurs with the tire pressure gauge but not always, sometimes occurs after rapid braking. It does not feel like an alignment or balance problem, the car darts from one end of the lane, to the median of the lane on its own. On this date 2-24-10 my local dealership filled the tires, and made a slight change to the left alignment they could not duplicate the problem and stated "this could be a matter of personal preferences" regarding how I felt the car drove when this occurred. The Toyota manager also told me today that they understand "there could be a problem but they have no direction on how to repair it." When asked then if he could guarantee my safety and that this would not occur again he stated no, but there was nothing for him to do. No injuries to date. I do not feel Toyota is making reasonable efforts to quickly eliminate this problem, acknowledge a problem, and do not wish to resolve this with statements regarding my personal preference for the drive, and since this in their opinion is not reproducible for them it is not a viable problem for them to repair. 2) on approximately 2-11-10 I had to use my brakes in an emergency situation in which my brakes were temporally non-response. I had to downshift the gears, remove my foot totally from the gas pedal, and maneuvered the car away from the other stopped car. No ABS was felt, the brake pedal was depressed fully, this occurred at hwy speeds. No acknowledgement of problem or remedy proposed by toy currently.

I am extremely upset with Toyota. I purchased my first ever Toyota, a 2010 Corolla xrs. What did a get for my money? a multitude of severe safety problems. A death trap that I am stuck with. Can't sell it, can't trade it, stuck with driving it. A great first impression, let me tell you. Toyota should be mandated to refund our money 100% in full for knowingly selling defective products.

In an faux-article ad in Florida today, a local Florida space coast daily newspaper on 2/12, a local Toyota dealer states that: "every vehicle on the dealerships lot is fully qualified for sale. Any needed repairs have been made..." it goes on to state: "in the meantime, sales continue on Toyota's full line of vehicles. Those affected by the recall were fixed quickly, thanks to swift delivery of needed parts by Toyota." The ad then explains how owners of affected vehicles that are currently being driven can make arrangements to have them fixed "within the next 90 days". this is outrageous! Toyota is making statements that the customer comes first, the CEO looks like he's about to fall on his sword... yet they are repairing vehicles on the dealership's lot to prepare them for possible sale before they repair customer's vehicles that are being driven every day"?? that really makes it seem like Toyota's first priority is its customer's safety and satisfaction, huh? my mother-in-law drives a 2010 Corolla. I called the dealer she purchased it from and asked if they were selling new Corolla's at significant discounts. They assured me that they were. I asked about the recall situation, and was informed that if the car I selected hadn't been repaired yet, they would take care of it while I waited. I then asked if my relatives could bring their Corolla in for repair and was told: "no, we are working on Camry's first. We only have enough parts to fix the Corollas we have on the lot." How can they fix inventory before addressing customer vehicles??"

Toyota of kingsport 2525 East stone drive kingsport, tn 37660 on November 27, 2009, I purchased a 2010 Toyota Corolla, from a 3rd party for my ex-wife of gate city, Virginia. During the test drive, the 3rd party and I discussed the accelerator problem that was being reported in the news and on many internet websites. He assured me that there was not a problem. He also told me that the Corolla had never in its entire history been the subject of a recall. I later found out this to be untrue. There is also a problem with the steering on this car. It wanders at higher speeds and will not hold a straight line. This is a serious and dangerous defect, especially for a 60-year old woman. You cannot take your eye off the road even for a split second or you may find yourself in the next lane or running off the road. This is highly unacceptable. According to the news, this steering defect has been reported to Toyota on many occasions. My ex wife is on disability. She had major heart surgery in February, 2009. She had two heart valves replaced, two heart artery by-passes and had to have a graft on her heart aorta. She has many other disabilities to deal with. This was her first new car in 13 years. She previously drove a Toyota tercel for 13 years - a good car. Together, we have owned a Camry, tercel, Tundra, Tacoma and now this Corolla. But I can assure you that this will be the last Toyota I will ever buy. Toyota has know about these defects but still continued to sell them to the public. The word that comes to mind is fraud. I am at a loss as what to do. I am also on disability and cannot afford to replace this car for her and I worry each day that she has to drive this car. Please respond in writing how you plan to address this situation. As each day passes, the chance of her being involved in an accident grows greater. You will receive a copy of this letter by certified mail.

I own a 2010 Toyota Corolla. On several occasions, when I apply the brake, there is a shuddering feeling and sound before the braking hooks in. I would say this has happend about 10 times in the 6 months I have owned the car. In light of the other braking problems, I am more and more concerned about this one. I plan to discuss this to with Toyota when I take my car for the other breaking and accelerator repairs. However, in light of all of the problems with the new cars, what is it going to take before the dot insists that there be a buyback of these 2009-1010 cars, which are obviously full of problems. Where will it end" more accidents" I want my money back.

As I was turning off a main road to a store parking lot my vehicle begain to accelerate after I removed my foot from the brake. I was going about 10mph at the time. I was able to quickly stop the car and turn it off. At this time, I will not allow anyone in my family to drive this vehicle. I am an engineer and there is no question in my mind that this vehicle was accelerating on its own after I removed my foot from the brake and I was driving on a road with no grade (flat road).
