I have always owned multiple Toyotas simultaneously. I have always noticed that on my 2009 Corolla the digital thermometer reads and reacts much slower to outside temperature changes than my other Toyotas do. I have a 2001 Corolla that changes immediately when I pull out of my warm garage into the cold, but my 2009 Corolla will take up to 5 to 10 minutes to read the accurate outside temperature. Anyone ... Read More
My girlfriend has a 2001 Toyota Corolla which has developed the following intermittent fault re which I have not yet identified the cause Whilst driving in a straight line, when I start turning the steering wheel to the left sometimes the radio dies and when i attempt to return the steering wheel to its original position it refuses to turn back and the car continues to turn left. turning off and ...

Let me start by stating the price you paid for the 5 year warranty ($2000.00) sounds outrages. But anyway, I also have a 2009 XLE I bought new in 2008. I do notice the A.C. in my 2009 does not cool as good as my 2001 Corolla LE. That being said, the only problem I have experienced with the A.C. in the 2009 is the stinky odor from the evaporator coil. ... Read More
They spray Magic Fluid into your intake to clean your already clean injectors and dissolve non-existent carbon in your engine so that you're already smooth running engine will run smoother and your gas mileage will go up but not enough for NASA to measure. :P $150 please.
Okay, I give up ! What's an induction service? Is that where they "induct" you into the Toyota Hall of Fame?
"What should tune-up include?" The Owner's Manual is the place to start. Beware of extras that shops recommend, like "induction service". See my last post here: http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f2552d7/12
Hi, I have 2001 Toyota, Corolla. it has 104,000miles. last time I had tune up was in 60K miles. Should I get tune up done now that it has hit over 100k miles. What should tune-up include? Also, I recently had breaks replaced, tires changed second time, first changed them at 50K, since then when ever I break very fast, push break to the end it makes knocking noise like 'tuck, ...

Are you the first owner of your Corolla? Could you or a previous owner have used an abrasive compound that might have removed the clear coat finish? I know polymer compounds such as "2001" and "NU Finish" (and I'm sure there are others) have been mentioned to remove clear coat if not used as directed. I mean I myself use NU Finish and just love the once a year protection it ... Read More
Ugh Oh, I goofed ! I got my two Corollas mixed up (2001 and 2009). I gave wrong information regarding the oil filter for the 2009/2010 Corollas. The 2009/2010 do have the plastic cap that just gets twisted off as I stated, but underneath is the small paper filter that needs to be changed. So actually, for the poster in message #838 no tools at all are actually needed to change ... Read More
Thanks Mr Shiftright, this is good info.
Well this is one of those "while we're in there" type of repairs...since the transmission is coming out, and apart, it makes sense to replace not only the bearings (it's actually called a "small parts rebuild"), but the clutch, pilot bushing, throwout bearing, pressure plate and to remove and resurface the flywheel (if needed). IN addition, there may be various coolants, belts, hoses, etc. that could need replacement....so yeah, I could ... Read More
Hi auto experts out there...I was quoted $2045.00 for the following repairs to my 2001 Toyota Corolla: transmission rebuild (for loose bearings = super loud grinding noise while I'm driving on the highway and in the higher gears when i'm slowing down and need to downshift), plus a clutch replacement and rear main seal repair. Does this sound about right to you? Any advice (or ribbing because I don't know anything ... Read More
Well the rattle is a warranty issue so you wouldn't have to pay for that. I wouldn't know about the cost of the pre-determined maitenence schedule needs (other than they are expensive) because with all of my past and present Toyotas I have never taken any of them in for those rip-off appts. All I do is gas them up, change the oil and filters every 4 K miles, keep an ... Read More
I think is crap that Toyota hasn't offered to repaint these cars, I know there has to more folks with this paint issue that haven't come forward. I also have a 2001 Corolla that the clearcoat is peeling off the roof and rear left door. I am the second owner of his car, purchase in So Cal. and have waxed it tried to keep out of the sun.... Now that I ... Read More
I know this is not what you want to hear but I have an 2001 LE with 58,000 miles on it and all I ever do is change the oil/filter every 3000 miles and I drained and refilled the transmission fluid one time. At 60,000 I'll change the original plugs. This car as well as all of my Toyotas have given me excellent service and I don't do much to them. ... Read More
I went to get my 5th corolla - yes - 5th corolla which is a record in 20 years. I am sorry to say, as a die hard toyota Corolla fan. They have lost it on this model. I walked away from a great deal on the following reason. The steering is completely useless. It is unsafe and dangerous to drive. Yes at low speeds i am not concerned, At higher ... Read More
In November 2004 my beloved 95 Toyota Tercel was smashed up in a collision. 10 years that car never gave me a lick of trouble. So when everything was settled in December I went searching for a new car. First choice: Toyota, second choice Honda. I didn't want a new car, wanted a slightly used one (as in let someone else take the big depreciation hit). All the dealerships in my ... Read More
2001 toyota corolla s, 128k I have had this car for about 6 months. On occasion when I am slowing, stopping and then make a turn (usually right turns). There is a low dragging or faint grinding noise coming from the rear passenger side (wheel area), sounds almost like the brake is sticking. I don't notice any driveability issue. I only notice it when i am turning. Also a seperate issue, ... Read More
I am so glad you said that. Toyota is my favorite automobile manufacturer. When they were bumping off everybody I was quietly "giggling" inside. I have been burned by every American auto maker and nothing but Toyota's have done my family right. Our 2001 Corolla has about 200,000 miles on it. I think I have been listening to others on the site...someone made a comment about Toyota's engines "blowing up before ... Read More
the vsv (911-601) that i picked up was listed as "at charcoal canister" i looked a bit at the dorman site. vsv(911-602, 911-603) the inputs/outputs are on the same side just like the one on my 2001 toyota corolla. Any idea if any one of these parts will be compatible? Can I reroute the hose to for the 911-601, or will the others work even thought they are not listed as ... Read More
There isn't a single forum here where someone isn't detailing their woes with a particular vehicle, be it Toyota, Honda, Ford, GMC, etc. Fewer people step up to say how much they love their vehicle. Me....I don't love any vehicle! They are a necessary evil. I'm a native New Yorker, displaced to Florida where I either drive or stay home. Public transit is nearly non-existent. So I have no loyalty or ... Read More
I agree the 1998-02 generation Corolla was also one very well built generation. Interior materials are top notch for the compact class. I drove a 2001 LE as a rental for an entire week in Florida and absolutely loved it! Gas mileage was awesome and the excellent build quality was certainly noticeable. What I loved about the 03-08 generation was the height of the vehicle. It was super easy getting in ... Read More
That's an interesting story. I understand your thoughts entirely and agree with everything you said. I have three Corollas right now and my favorite right now is definitely my 2001 LE. I have a "92" and a "09 XLE" also. I really like my 2009 XLE quite a bit, but I'd rather drive my 2001. Your right about the quality skimping on the recent generation Corolla vs. the older style. I ... Read More
I was looking at my local dealership on Sunday morning. I happened to see a 2001 Corolla LE in the row containing cars going to be sent to the auction. I peeked at the relese tabs and they look exactly like the 2003-08 generation tabs. I figured you might see this on your 2001 as well! I have been doing some extensive research on these tabs. Apparently on the 03-08 generation, ... Read More
Last Friday I had a 110 lb. garage door spring snap in my closed garage overnight. Inside were my Black Pearl Mica 2001 and my Barcelona Red 2009 Corollas. Unfortunately the newer 2009 Corolla was on the side where the spring snapped and flew wildly. It struck my passenger side rear quarter panel and left a dime size indentation as well as about 6 inches of spring marks down the side ... Read More
Perhaps these gas door "cheaper release tabs" you posted about were a change for 2010. On my 2009 Corolla I have the same tabs as my 2001 Corolla. Rigid metal and never a problem.
My Radio is locked and i need a radio code for my 2001 toyota corolla verso
I bought my 2001 manual transmission Corolla off the lot brand new; hadn't even been driven yet. The cassette player worked for the first couple of years, but I haven't been able to get it to work at least for the last three years, probably longer. I tried one of those tape cleaner things, but that didn't help. It's the stock stereo and I'm not having any problems with the CD ... Read More
Well I have to disagree with you there! When I buy a new car, I don't go home and consider myself lucky that it works as it's supposed to. I expect it to perform and give me the Toyota reliability I've come to expect. "Luck" never enters the picture unless it's bad luck as your experiencing. Considering the small number of Corolla owners affected by the EPS problem and the highly ... Read More
Excellent and very educating post. I didn't know that about the Avalons. The closest I ever came to buying an Avalon would have been a Solara back in 2001. After much thought I just couldn't get myself to buy a large two door coupe. Stuck with the Corollas and so glad I did. You sound like a person with discriminating taste. I was sold on Corollas after I purchased my first ... Read More
To me that's a no brainer. I have a 2001 Corolla with 50,500 miles on that runs like a clock. I also have a 1998 Corolla and a 2009 Corolla. If my motor went on my 1998 and I could get the deal for a Toyota motor with 51,000 miles on it for $1500.00 like you were offered, I would jump at it to throw into my 1998. That car would ...

I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla with 172K on it. I have a mechanic that would install a 2001 engine with 51K on it for $1500 (Total). The car's engine is shot with white smoke coming out of the tail pipe (shut the car off immediately). Prior to this the car burned and leaked oil...a quart a week.....and one of the spark plugs always had a lot of oil on it.... ... Read More
I didn't mean the Corolla was an electrical lemon, I meant my Corolla was. Dramatic I am not, I mostly just described the problems that lead me to conclude that. I've had a few cars in my time, some with mileage under 300km some with mileage over 300,000km, all in and from a Canadian climate and never have I had the number of minor electrical problems I have had with this ...

You might want to follow this link to read all of the TSB's for the 2004 Toyota Corolla and then take it to your dealer and ask him about what they are doing about the know problem? I know when my tensioner went bad in my 2001 Corolla I received a letter directly from Toyota and it was replaced totally for free. http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/tsb/tsbresults_drilldown.cfm?start=1&- - SearchType=DrillDown&type=VEHICLE&year=2004&make=TOYOTA&model=COROLLA&&TYPENUM=1- - &SUBMIT=Retrieve+Recalls&PrintVersion=YES
Could it be that the original sparg plugs have reached the end of their life? The OEM plugs in the 2001 are iridium plugs and can last up to 120,000 miles. If they are double platinum plugs they can last up to 60,000 miles. I would suggest starting with a sparg plug check. Just remove one and see what the tip looks like. If the wire or the electrode are burned ... Read More
I have noticed the following issue with my car (Corolla 2001 - 90 K) in last few months. If I don't idle the car and start driving, car would start choking and then turn off. I have to idle for 1-2 min and then it would run without any problem. I live in Florida, so cold weather is not a issue. it just started few months ago. Before that I never ... Read More
my car is 2001 corolla Sport ('S') model. problem is: If the engine is cold, the reverse gear works ( if I start the car in the morning). Once I have driven a couple of miles and the engine is warmed up, the reverse gear does not clutch anymore.
Well unfortunately it's only available at a Toyota Dealership, it's what is in your car right now. A 50/50 mixture of quality Prestone Coolant would be my second choice. Yes it's just fine to add a different quality coolant (formulated for todays cars) to your existing Toyota coolant. The reason I suggested to return to the dealer was just to be sure there was not a problem as it's quite unusual ... Read More
I understand that you are very upset about loosing access and having problems with your new car and as you should be, so I will not take issue with any of your invasiveness. I tried to help you by telling you that waiting four days for a Toyota part is very unusual. I would definitly take Pat's advice and take your car to another dealer.You are aware that all Toyota dealers ... Read More
I have a 2001 corolla s and had the tension pulley go bad it would rattle when in gear during certain rpm ranges so I bought a new pulley with the assembly from toyota and within a year it also went bad. I know there has been alot of problems with the pulleys from toyota. I am going to try a aftermarket part. my question is the problem in the assembly ... Read More
I was wondering if you get any answer from the shop. I have a 2001 corolla and Just had the same problem last week.
I'm glad he found your problem and will take care of it on Monday. Hopefully it'll be tears until you have any other issue. I have a 2001 Corolla from new yet and only ever had one minor issue as well. Good Luck!
FYI, I own a 2001 Corolla as well as a 2009 Corolla and a 1986 Tercel which I bought brand new in 1985. I have never had any preventive maintenance done on any of my vehicles by the dealer. All I do is regular oil changes, spark plugs on the "86" occasionally and rotate the tires occasionally. It is also important to make sure your fluids are always at there required ... Read More
...2001 Celica GT-S with 23000 miles on it. What a piece of crap. The engine was loud, underpowered... I'll just assume that you didn't wind out the engine. It's only adequate at low-revs (not that different from the Civic Si), but takes off above 6,000 RPM. Of course, not many drive at that RPM often! I also agree with the post that states that the Corolla is probably the quietest. Toyotas ... Read More
You could be absolutely correct. I have never driven a 3, so it could be noisier than the Civic for all I know. I also agree with the post that states that the Corolla is probably the quietest. Toyotas are usually rock solid and quiet. Although this usually comes at the price of feeling "disconnected" from the driving experience. Totally off topic, but I just drove my mom's (age 67) 2001 ... Read More
i have a 2001 toyota corolla sport. the engine blew in it. does anyone know if i could swap in a celica gt or gts motor in it? id like too but not sure if it would work. or any other motor would be good. thanks for the help
Thanks for your reply! Fluid level looks ok to me. Two additions: 1. This car is the Sport ('S') model. 2. If the engine is cold, the reverse gear works (f.e. if I start the car in the morning). Once I have driven a couple of miles and the engine is warmed up, the reverse gear does not clutch anymore. Many thanks in advance!
How's the transmission fluid level?
Hi there, Odometer: 93,000 miles. I recently discovered a slightly grinding noise, that got higher in pitch the more I accelerated. When I reached 40 mph is usually disappeared and came back once my speed dropped below the 40 mph mark again. After a couple of weeks the noise disappeared. But now my reverse gear is causing problems. When I shift into RG the transmission does not pull. I hit the ... Read More
I have a 2005 Corolla with almost 56,000 miles and I am having the exact same problem! It is in the shop as we speak, so if Toyota finds anything- I will definitely post it. I had a trusted mechanic tell me the exact same thing- that one of my front axels has "too much play" in it and that it could be the differential in the transmission... which would cost ... Read More
Another possibility is a failed fuel pump, but if the pump was bad it probably would have failed before 50k miles.
Bad gas or clogged fuel filter sounds it like could be the issue. Good Luck MNF
I have 2001 Corolla with less than 50,000 miles and it was working properly. Never had any problems since then. One day when I was on the road the car suddenly stopped in the middle of the road and won't start anymore. A technician came in and have checked all the possible causes (fuses, fuel supply, spark plugs, etc) and they are all OK. The engine was cranking when you switch ... Read More
I have a 2001 Toyota Corolla LE. The driver's side, interior door handle has broken and I have ordered a replacement. Can anyone refer me to a site with instructions on how to replace the handle? Or can you give me any tips? Will I have to replace the panel on the door? Thanks.
A few years ago I almost bought a Ford because all of them had alloys. It's not true anymore, but that's how I remember it. 2001 or 2002 it was. The Yaris 4 door just isn't what I'm looking for. Toyota's own Corolla does it so much better. The Corolla parks small enough. But....I've been to San Francisco, and in about half that county anything bigger than a Mini is too ... Read More
I've owned two Corollas in the past - a '97 CE and a '01 LE. I had a few issues with the '97 model that were fixed by the dealer under warranty. I never had a single problem with the '01. Ever. I kept it for over five years and never did anything but routine maintenance. I ended up selling it to my uncle and bought an Accord. I like my ... Read More
I have a 2001 Toyota Corolla with 79K miles. I purchased the car new and have had the manual transaxle fluid replaced twice since owning the car. Recently, the car has begun making a clicking sound in 2nd gear and higher. The noise is not noticeable in 1st gear or neutral. But is a continuos clicking sound that is consistent with the engine speed in 2nd gear and higher. I was ... Read More
See post (2/25/07) #2820 & 2748 (1/10/07). I also replaced the engine on a 2001 4 cyl Corolla, Jan 07, with 84,000 that was burning 1 to 2 quarts every time the gas tank was to be filled since about 64,000 miles. The piston rod finally broke and that was it. We unfortunately purchased it with 52,000 and had no recourse with Toyota Customer Service. Apparently this was an inherent problem ... Read More
You're probably right with the COTY but only with respect to Toyotas who won it. As far as I know COTY award winners from Honda such as the Civic and Fit were hugely succesful. The Fit is one of the rare cases in which the crtitics voting for the JCOTY and the buying public agreed. The Civic? It's been a forgotten car in Japan - you hardly ever see one in ... Read More
Recently (less than a month) I had a problem with my Driveaxles and had to get them replaced. The front end was making a rubbing sound like when you have something that is not round and when it is spun it always hits on that spot. I had the car aligned afterwards. Well the issue is pretty much the same thing (same kind of sound) does this mean that the Driveaxles ... Read More
Yes DrFill, the Honda car model is sporty, reliable, and economical vs the Corolla that is just reliable and economical. Ironically its Toyota that is supplying 1.8L turbo engines to Lotus that put out over 200 hp! Why not pass some of that down to the masses? I could care less what the sales of each are, quality of available dealerships is vastly more important. Very weak dealer networks is what ... Read More
I rented a Mazda3 while my 98 Corolla was in the shop this past spring. Outside of the purple color, it was a cutie with some VERY sensitive power brakes, and it's HUGE on the inside, to the point where I was surprised how much roomier it was than my Corolla. Being bluish-purple, it had dark interior, which I prefer light, and I WAS NOT a fan of the orange illumination ... Read More
Well the 02 sensor code is tricky, because all that means is that the 02 sensor is upset...whether IT'S bad, or something else is bad that is causing it to malfunction---that's the question that a good mechanic can decipher. If he does replace the 02 sensor, get a factory one, not an aftermarket one. Buy it from Toyota.
My 2001 Corolla (125K km) has developed a steering vibration at speeds over 65 mph that I've read so much about in this forum. My mechanic tells me the front end is all good, but he did suggest that the sway bar links could need replacing. All the tires were new last year, and they show no signs of unusual wear. I pulled the driver's side front wheel and rotated it ... Read More
I have a 2001 Corolla and have replaced the cat 3X with aftermarket Universals. The engine light ultimately comes back on each time. I have replaced 2 o2 sensors AND had the fuel injectors first cleaned then replaced. This has been going on since last summer. The worst is that is runs with some sort of roughness, especially while idling. I've been told by the dealership that it is not misfiring ... Read More
I just arranged a deal for a new 2007 Corolla S manual with ABS, side-curtain airbags, and the EVP #1 that includes alloy wheels, power windows, remote keyless entry and cruise control AND those stupid carpet mats. (I think this means at least AB, CK, Z1,BE... I don't really know all the codes, just the features - edited, I found the codes: FE, BE, CK, AB, VP, CT). Price out-the-door, including ... Read More
I have a 2001 Corolla CE with a 3 speed automatic transmission with torque lock up driven 52K miles. I have problems with the transmission shifting from first to second gear. The problem occurs if I accelerate a particular way (not being aggressive). I have kept up maintenance by having 2 complete flushes (at the Toyota dealership) and 1 service dropping the pan (changing out 4 - 5 quarts) at an ... Read More
Had similar problem on 12/25/06,on a 2001. Had just checked the oil 40 miles prior to the incident. At 83,000 miles, the engine went, piston rod broke on the highway. The oil pan was filled. Have had excessive oil consumption and also would it not keep oil pan or valve cover gaskets which were replaced several times in past 12 months. Replaced the engine with a used one. Not sure if ... Read More
Whether it is a real Toyota part is largely up to the dealer and what he can get. I've seen '05's with after-market spoilers and some of them indeed are shaped differently but are still top quality. The dealer, I think, at least has an obligation to tell you which you are getting. Yes, the 450 part can be non-Toyota, but should at least be the highest quality available. My theory ... Read More
Beernut, Thanks for the information on the less expensive, but "not the real deal" spoilers. When my son read what you shared he has decided to wait and has decided he doesn't think he wants to part with that kind of money at this time. (He couldn't do it now anyway as he doesn't have any left! :) It is interesting, though, when I called around a couple of Toyota parts ... Read More
I knew you would chime in , pat. Nice to know you are keeping an eye on us. Since spoilers are, as discussed, not a functional piece of equipment for the car other than looks (except for hot-rods like the Crossfire, etc), there isn't much mechanical risk to the car in sticking one on there. I suppose they can be rewarding to fool around with on one's first car. I confess ... Read More
My parents just purchased a 2001 Corolla S model for my son who recently began driving. He is interested in buying a rear spoiler and having it installed. We have looked online and found two sites that you can submit the color code and have the spoiler shipped to you. (the cost- $200 total) We called our local Toyota Dealer who wants $450 for his parts and installation. He said he ... Read More
My parents have just purchased a used 2001 Corolla S for my son who recently began driving. He is interested in having a rear spoiler added to the car. I have been online and have found a site called spoiler-depot that sells prepainted (you give them the color code) spoilers for $200 (incl. S + H). I called our local Toyota dealer who wanted $450 for the part and installation. I ... Read More
[KTSEN] Click on this link for the website that I purchased the Serpentine Belt Tensioner from... Keep in mind that this oem part number was for my 2001 Toyota Corolla Good luck! P.S. Freight was right at $10.00 from their location to Texas. elgringo_68
Does anyone know how to install coilovers for a 2001 Toyota Corolla?
c2cp, You might want to have your serpentine belt tensioner/pulley inspected. These symptoms are very characteristic of what I experienced with my 2001 toyota corolla at 45k miles. I found the assembly on the web for about $127.00 and had a buddy put it on for me. If you are mechanically inclined, you can check it by removing the serp. belt. If there is any looseness in the round pulley, your ... Read More
Hi there, Just read your info about Check Engine Light on, My car, 2001 Toyota Corolla with 53000km. get three error code, P0440-EVAP control Sys; P0441-EVAP Sys Purgeflow low; P0446-EVAP vent solenoid pro; These three code get back again and again after I reset each time. Do you think I should replace the gas cap? it looks nothing wrong with it. BTW, I am going to take E-test soon. Is that ... Read More
Last week the check engine light came on in my '99 LE. I went to Autozone to have them plug into the harness and read the fault code. The codes that came up were both EVAP codes, one was for a purge flow fault, and the other was for a vent circuit malfuntion. The AZ guy said the most common cause for these errors was a faulty gas cap. I replaced ... Read More
We have been unable to locate a manual for this model.
I would purchase a repair manual for your car. It will tell you how to do just about any repair for your car. I bought my repair guide from autozone for about 18 bucks. It has helped greatly with numerous fixes i have used. This should tell you how to remove your speakers and factory head unit.
The wires appear to be factory fitted as they come out of the wiring loom and stop just short of where the rear speakers should be fitted. The wires have a black rectangular shaped plug attatched. I am unsure as to whether they are connected to the rear of the radio as i do not know the proceedure for taking the built in radio out as this is obviously factory fitted ... Read More
How do these wires appear to be dead? Are they the factory wires? Is there a factory head unit in the car? If there is an aftermarket head unit, they may have run new wires. Give us some more info if you can.
Can anyone help, i have a 2001 Toyota Corolla and want to know how to fit rear speakers. I have located wires either side near where the speakers should be fitted but these appear to be dead. Any ideas?
How do I know if my 2001 Toyota Corolla has a block heater already in it? Thanks ahead of time for any help!! :)
Because it does not need to be replaced. The prior generation Corollas (pre '98) had ones that needed (per owner's manual) to be replaced every 30 or 60k miles. Most cars are like this now, and so far it is not causing any problems for Toyota. I cannot recall ever reading or hearing any problems associated with this type of fuel filter system. Saves me $ and time, and does not ... Read More
I have recently purchased a used Corolla S '01 with 70000 miles on it. I love this car, very clean and sporty looking. The thing is a week after I bought it the check engine light came on :( . So I took it to the local Auto Zone store to check it out, it showed code P0446. Found that this code means Purge Valve malfunction. The guy said that I ... Read More
I had the same problem with my 2001 toyota corolla. In fact it's at the dealership at this very moment due to the issue. I kept taking it in and they said they could find nothing wrong with it and to keep driving and keep an eye on the oil consumption. Now the crank is gone, number 4 piston is shot and who knows what else is wrong with it. I ... Read More
I am having engine problems with my toyota 2001 corolla. I noticed your respond date was May 23rd. I would really like to get in touch with this reporter. I really need help in this matter Sincerely, Babs
I have a 2001 toyota corolla with 76,000 miles on it. One day I put a quart in the engine, the next day no engine, no warning just no power. I had a guy get a used engine from a junk yard and had it installed. The engine came used from auto zone. Now THIS engine is burning more oil than the one I had. A second mechanic said it is ...

My wife's 2000 Corolla had to be rebuilt under warranty due to a piston rod problem as well at just under 60,000, so it was covered under warranty, and they did give a free rental car while it was in the shop. In an event unrelated to quality issues, we later replaced the engine due to my wife running it without oil in it, and the cost for a engine replacement ... Read More
Folks, I just bought a 2001 Corolla with 60,000 miles. First Toyota I've ever bought. The dealer is offering a 3rd party 'bumper-to-bumper" 3 yr, 30,000 mile service agreement with a $100 deductible for $1,700. A worthy expense?

First of all......I don't know where the heck you are getting your info from about Toyota losing its share with Blah blah and blah. Get realistic......Toyota is going to beat GM Motors in its sales which is the number one company in the world and are you telling me the older generations are only buying the car. The technology that honda is supposedly making is taking them where?????? If you also ... Read More
Hello All, At this time I'm trying to decide on a used certified Toyota Echo 2001, with 31K miles on it going for about $10K, which is the color I want and almost all the options, but power nothing; and a used 2003 Corolla, Black (not really the color I'm looking for), going for $11,500, with 42000 miles on it. The Corolla seems to be a better car overall with slightly ... Read More
I bought my son a 2001 Corolla last year. This year, the repair shop told him his motor was on its last legs (said a rod was going) and suggested he take it somewhere to have the engine replaced.

So what is exactly up with this, I just bought A 2004 Corolla, i have 1600 miles, and haven't noticed anything unusual, I bought this car for reliability, my old 2001 Alero only made it 95000 miles, hopefully this makes it longer, I am starting to believe that toyota reliability has gotten worse over the recent years.

Hudson Toyota is not an option..they wanted to sell my dad a Avalon more priced than a fully equipped Lexus es300. Any good or decent sales people anyone know ... Read More
Finally, some support. Thanks, Backy. I'm thinking Toyota could shift production of the newly retired (at least in NA) 2.0L VVTi 4 that was used in the RAV4 from 2001-2003. This mill produced a healthy 148 hp and 142 lb. ft, and would add some welcome zip to the already decently peppy Corolla line. If it were my decision, I'd keep the 1.8L in the current CE and LE models, drop ... Read More
Question for the new 2003 Toyota Corolla le with keyless entry. Can the keyless entry be set so that when either unlocking or locking the doors the lights can blink with a beeping sounds(like the older 2000-2001 camrys)or does the lights only blink.
