I stopped on a slow going traffic on a highway.suddenly, a Ford Explorer hit me on the back trunk and rear glass damaged suddenly and pushed my car to hit the car in front of me. It damaged the front badly. If I have passengers in the back, it will hurt them badly or sudden death because of the back is not strong which cause the glasses to break and bend the trunk and sun roof. The air bag did not pop up. It is not safe!! my head, neck, back, spinal cord were painful. There were no damage on the Ford Explorer. Toyota was easily damage and rolled/pushed to the front car. Please tested the back/trunk/bumper/airbag. Recently about 5 months ago, my 2006 Corolla was hit behind from a Honda Accord that was going 5mph after making a stop at a stoplight. My car was badly damaged at the bumper and head lights, while the other car was hardly damaged. This is the 3rd accidents in 4 month with Corolla body parts. After these accidents, I do not want to own another Toyota!! I'm scared for my life.

For three weeks we have been wondering why our new Toyota Corolla is steaming hot inside. Since we use it solely to commute to school which is just 2 miles away, we solve the problem by winding down the windows. The kids were complaining that this car is exceptionally hot and we thought it absorbs and retains the summer heat due to its darker color. Last weekend, we decided to drive an hour away from home. By the time we headed for home, it was afternoon and the vehicle was parked under the sun for about five hours. We turned on the ac in the hope to cool it down. Fifteen minutes later, I felt dizzy and drowsy. I struggled to keep myself awake. I was terrified to find that the ac is not just failing to cool the car down, it was emitting steaming hot air. We quickly wind down the windows to let the summer air in, which felt much cooler in comparison. The kids were very quiet and scared. As soon as we reached home, my son complained that his eyes felt very hot. His whole body felt very hot. He felt very tired and sleepy. First thing Monday morning, I sent the car back to the dealer. They found a leak and had the parts ordered. I have to drive the car home unfixed until the parts arrive. I am now still driving a new defective car without ac. Three days later, my son is still running a low grade fever and I dare not let him sit in the car with such poor ventilation under the hot summer sun. I come to realize that the ac was broken when the car was sold to me brand new.
