problem #4

Jul 092019

Corolla SE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles

I was pulling up to park behind another vehicle in the driveway moving at a near stopping rate of speed driving my 2006 Corolla. It suddenly surged forward and I couldn't get it stopped. It crashed into the other vehicle causing significant damage to the Corolla. I'm deciding what to do next since Toyota denies the unintended acceleration. I'm afraid of the vehicle now and will likely get rid of it.

Corolla CE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles

Was pulling into a parking space and put on brakes . My car accelerated and pushed me over a large rock. I had to be towed for 150.00. If there had been people in front of me they would be dead. The harder I braked the more the car accelerated.

problem #1

Corolla 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

It has happened several times, Toyota supposedly repaired the computer problem in 2008 , however in March 2009 I was involved in a serious accident, the car accelerated and would not stop I hit a parked car and a building exterior. The mats were in the correct place and when I appealed the surcharge the appeals board found that it was more than 51% the fault of the vehicle. It still happens I am afraid sometimes but I have no other way to get to work, I don't want to be seriously hurt.
