I bought a leftover 2013 Corolla S (added options Southeast window tint, and floor mats, automatic transmission) at the end of September at Nalley Toyota in Roswell, GA. I was out the door with the paperwork fees and the dealer fee of $599 for 17,800 out the door (the way the paperwork was written, the car was discounted $3,600, but of course the dealer fee offsets some of that. I got ... Read More
General comments (see 'Paint' below) I am one of the first ones to defend a good product, but by the same token, I won't turn a blind eye when I think quality has slipped. I have owned Toyotas for thirty years, including four Corollas (1984, 1997, 2004, and 2009 [I also owned a 1978 Celica hatchback from 1982 - 2008]) and I have generally been a satisfied customer. In my humble ... Read More
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
On the 09-newer Corolla there is another place under the hood where mice can enter the cabin area of the car: Look down behind the engine where the grey A/C lines pass through the firewall. Just above the lines where the poorly placed foam is supposed to seal off the hole, there is just enough gap in the foam for a mouse to squeeze through. Plug it off with silicone.
I a 2009 Corolla LE. It's a Japanese built model made in 2008. It first started after the vehicle was sitting for week; when I went to back out of garage the brakes seemed to be ceased and then let go with a "twang" and the ABS/Brake Light came on. The ABS/Brake lights went on/off intermittently but then stayed on steadily after a while. Iíve been to local mechanic four times ... Read More

A quick Google shows they ARE available. How about this one? http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/102820170-toyota-corolla-2009-2010-servic- - - e-repair-manual True, there is no Haynes manual YET, but I am sure there will be soon. The last generation Corolla (2003-2008) has a Haynes manual available. Why not get a Toyota OEM one (better than Haynes, etc.). If you download, they are really cheap. Also, plugs don't need to be changed for at least 100,000 miles.
I purchased a 2009 manuel trans. corolla, and i have to say that i enjoy this car. I purchased it in May of 2008. I have not had many problems with it. I do get really good gas mileage with it. On the highway, i usually get about 45 miles to the gallon and that is by my calculations, not just the car. However, I have noticed that there are times ... Read More
>The last straw came last night when I removed painters tape around an area i was touching up and the paint all came off on the the tape. This is not the mark of a quality paint job. Haven't there been postings about problems with Corolla paint for years? The other poster claims it's _all_ companies having paint problems now. Is that true? Read the Lexus forums?

Hello, I have 2008 toyota corolla sedan. Am due for first lot of new tyres post purchase. Naturally want best for wet and dry conditions and mid range price. Am confused by brands available and would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you .
To my prior post of why i walked away from 2011 Corolla because of unsafe steering. I did get a great buy on 2008 Corolla CE; The steering and handling is superb and safe. Strangely enough, the manager of the dealership did not admit there was an issue; his response was - I have never heard of any issue regarding steering. Not just 1 but 2 dealerships said the same; 1 ... Read More
I do not believe they use VIN #s to find the specific cars. The EPS issue just happened for certain years. My Corolla S is a 2010 model, but before that I had a 2008 model, same car different year though but the key is they both had the same problem which is the car cannot just stay moving forward in straight path and the driver has to over compensate in ...

This very well may be true. Ninth generation Corolla debuted in Jan. 2002 as a 2003 model and remained being built through Nov./Dec. 2007. as 2008 model year. The ninth generation Corolla lasted for six years rather than the typical 5-year cycle. Toyota could decide to keep the 10th generation around for 6 years as well. There are rumors out there that also say Toyota is delaying the introduction of the ... Read More
I purchased my 2009 toyota corolla le in late 2008. After 22000 miles, in the winter of 2009 my car wouldn't start. The temp that night was in the teens. I called my dealership (Ralph Hayes Toyota) and told them of the problems I was having. They sent a tow truck out and when it arrived the car started. There was a 25 degree temp differential in when I initially tried ... Read More
"As far as my own particular 2009 Toyota Corolla XLE, I accuired my car in July of 2008. Even at this early stage it was documented by some that this EPS problem was showing it's face." That is what I am asking you - WHERE is this documentation you speak of that you used before you bought your car regarding specifically EPS issues. "I made it very clear to my salesman ... Read More
Your missing the whole point. The EPS problems in some of the newer Corollas didn't just appear on its own. If you car has this problem, it had it from day one. The vehicles that have the EPS problem, had it from the very start. Now again, if you test drove the same Corolla you were going to buy, trust me, you would have known it had you taken it out ... Read More
Reading through most of the messages on this board, I am convinced that - a. Many Corollas in the 2009-10 model years (sale started early 2008) have trouble staying centered on the freeway at high-speed. b. Not all the Corollas are affected by this problem. So, I was just wondering if it has anything to do with where your Corolla was assembled: US, Canada, or Japan, given that often different part-suppliers ... Read More
Hi Tercel Tom....I do apologize to the forum for the caps.....I let my anger towards a certain poster get the best of me I admit it. I just do not understand why anyone would continuously go to a thread to post negativity and bash those individuals who were experiencing difficulties with their Toyota or any other car for the matter. It doesnt make sense to go to a site and recite ... Read More
First off let me say I mis-interpreted this forum use. I thought it was for those having EPS issues. Clearly I was incorrect about that. Also, again for the record I have had the TSB-0140-10 applied and my 2010 corolla is doing fine so far. 2nd all my posts have been about my issue and my experience. I have never said all toyotas are bad. All I am trying to do ... Read More
I'm just saying that as well. People who are just commenting much ado about nothing. When I came to the thread I had Googled EPS + steering problems in Toyotas and here I am. I did it to find if others were experiencing the same problem and if they knew what was wrong with my 2008 Corolla. I posted my concerns and that I had been to the NHTSA site and ... Read More
I THINK WE'RE ALL REALLY IMPRESSED WITH YOUR CAPITALIZATION! No one insinuated that the EPS problem was "minor", what we continue to state is that this problem is affecting only a very small number of late model Corollas. NOW WHY DON'T YOU ADDRESS THIS FOR ONCE? You have been reminded on at least three different occassions that your 2008 Corolla didn't even have EPS, so how in the world could it ... Read More
How can Toyota fix your EPS problems when I'm almost certain 2008 Corollas were never even manufactred with EPS? (Fact #5). You've been called on this and reminded several times on this thread and you continue to ignore this fact or even address it ! ! ! ! What am I missing here ?
YES I have!!! I don't really understand why people go on this type of thread and then bash people who have genuine concerns and negatively comment on other people who have had the same problem and some who have received help from Toyota like me. Facts are facts therefore they are not subject to persons who want to make claims that people are being untruthful. Fact 1: Toyota has admitted (finally!) ... Read More
Biff, Just call Toyota's customer experience line, and ask them to set you up with the new Computer unit module for the EPS. The 2008-2010 EPS systems are defective.and need replacing but the EPS replacement has to come from them.
Biff now that is something we can agree on! I too test drove both 2010 models but for me I did prefer the Mazda 3. I too hated getting back into the 2008 Corolla at the time.....but the Toyota 2010 Corolla has made me a believer in them again. I test drove a used Mazda 3 off another lot and let me tell you....the car had a muffler sound, it was ... Read More
Pekelvr What are you trying to say? I know theres a lot more to the driving problems than just veering on the highway and straight roads. Toyota admitted in a press statement which I can easily find or anyone else for that matter that the "fix" did not affect road handling. I wouldn't believe anyone who said that it does either. Column mounted electric steering in which there is a variable ... Read More
Enough already with the caps! I'm Terceltom and I enjoy Toyota's to the point where I currently own three Corollas and wouldn't part with any of them. Now, I would ask you, if you disliked your 2008 Corolla so much to the point where you wanted to sue Toyota, why did you buy a 2010 Corolla ????? And again, your 2008 did not have EPS so where are you coming from????? ... Read More
TERCEL IM CONFUSED...IF YOU HAVE DISLIKED TOYOTAS FOR THAT LONG WHY DO YOU COME TO EDMUNDS TO TALK ABOUT THEM? wups sorry for caps. Anyway the reason a lot of us came to the site is because we had a problem and were seeking information and banding together to see if theres anything anyone else knows about the problem. If you think Toyotas been a raw deal forever and then if ... Read More
It does sound like your he**bent on suing Toyota. You sued them for your 2008 now you want to sue them for your 2010.
I want to buy extended Warranty for a 2008 Toyota Corolla with 12K miles. Can someone suggest some links --where to buy . Thanks
My story continued.....I purchased my brand new 2008 Corolla S model at the end of 2008. I only test drove on side streets near the the dealer and a little bit on a 2 lane hwy going 45 at maximum. However, after I got it home and drove on the highway going 60-65 a few times including on the way home, I found that I had to overwork and struggle consistently ... Read More
that's a EPS defect...you've come to the right place here. Have you gone to NHTSA and reviewed the Toyota complaints on EPS? There is a defect in the computer in the steering. The EPS was designed to "help" out drivers with correcting the steering while we drive. SO for example if you are on the highway and the road has like ruts from truckers, the steering will guide the car automatically ... Read More

I am a recent refugee from the Edmunds Toyota Forum where I had purchased a new 2009 Toyota XLE Corolla (top of that line) I will shorten this up but after having their "shim fix" done to the gas pedal, I was still unhappy so I opted for an entire new assembly. A picture appeared yesterday where they reshaped the pedal as part 2 of that recall....what a butchery it is. ... Read More
Ok, I have now had a few days of "living" with the Subaru Outback after about 2 years with the Toyota Corolla XLE. I know the Subaru is a different class of vehicle (plus about $6000 on the new price sticker) and I am not going to knock the Toyota! Also I am surprised at myself for going from an 09 backwards to an 08...(what's in a year though, its all ... Read More
Well, I have had it. between the recalls, squeaks, rattles and what ever else ailed me, I decided to get rid of the 2009 Corolla.

Maybe because it was Made in Japan. I called Toyota and gave them the VIN just to be certain. Anyway, how about cleaning up the list? Accuracy is important. John
You raise a very good point and I completely agree with you. I think Toyota is very concerned about the so called steering issues with the Corolla. It seems as though nothing came out of the "investigation" opened in February by NHTSA. Obviously there isn't a recall for this issue that owners complain about with the "wandering" of the vehicle while driving. I still assume (if the 2011 Corolla comes out ... Read More
I submitted a complaint to Toyota and they sent 3 technicians to my dealership to experience the EPS steering problem first hand. They drove it for about an hour and checked it on the rack. I understand they are continuing to research the problem. I hope this means there will be a solution and a recall soon. I bought my 2009 corolla in June 2008 and now have over 33k miles ... Read More
Well, I guess I am going to have to report mine also. I bought my '09 Corolla XLE in Feb of 2008. It drove perfectly. My only complaint was the stopping distance. I reported it to the dealer and got brushed off. Then I was backing out of the driveway one day and the car wouldn't move. I pushed the pedal in a tiny bit further, no more. The third time ...

A test drive for a Corolla does not reveal the meandering...you have to drive it a while on different highways going 50 plus mph and you have to dot it for more than a 15 minute stretch. When I tested my 2010 Corolla I too did not experience the EPS issue so I traded in the Corolla that did which was an 2008 model. Because I do like my Toyota S, ... Read More
I recall back in late 2008 when the 2009 Corollas first came out the large volume of paint complaints on this forum. Seems like they all but totally disappeared. I wonder what's behind this.

not anymore huh? the new technology is taking them down down down when I traded my troublsome 08 model for 2010 Toyota themselves coldnt give me the value it promised to me when i purchased in 2008. Their resale is dropping drastically in light of all the deaths happening in their cars.
Apparently the dealer found nothing wrong with your car or they repaired it. This is what dealers do, they sell traded cars or else auction them off. They don't offer you money for them and then junk them. Considering ESC was not prevalent in a smaller 2007/2008 car I think Toyota might have been ahead of the game in 2008 with ESC. The more simple answer as to why it wasn't ... Read More
AllI can say is that I had a 2008 Corolla with 31,000 miles. The interior was perfect, I had a 6 cd changer, electronic everything. The only thing my car lacked was the stabilizer that my sales guy at mark Jacobson Toyota said will be standard on all sedans in the future. Now I'm not sure why my car had steering problems but it veered me off road to the right ... Read More
I own a 2008 Corolla S and think it should be part of the pedal recall. There has been times when I would lightly step on the accelorator and the car would jerk to an acceloration.

I too agree, the 2009 and newer Corolla's have a huge problem with the steering! I drove my daughters brand new 2009 Corolla several months ago with her and my wife in the car.

I feel your pain! Here's my story...I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla as well. I had my brakes done 3 times since I bought my car in May of 2008. The first time they replaced them, no problem.

I recently started getting the dead rodent smell in my 2008 Corolla, too. I've noticed droppings inside the interior and have cleaned thoroughly but the smell persists. I live in the middle of the Mojave Desert so I'm hoping that whatever is dead will soon desiccate and the odor will go away. For the life of me, I can't locate the source. I've seen no sign of wire-chewing or electrical damage. ... Read More
The mouse problem is not unique to Toyotas. I had a distinct dead mouse smell coming out of the a/c in a Dodge Stratus (always parked outside) last summer. I found a mouse carcass inside the a/c vent (luckily it hadn't chewed up anything except some insulation). I also found (and I am totally serious) a few pieces of snake skin in the same area - which troubled me more than ... Read More

Thanks for the update. I hope it takes care of the issue for you!
Hi just finished, the air intake is just under the plastic shield below the windshield. 20 minutes, and the car is back together. Hope this helps any one else, there is also an exhaust vent at the rear of the car in the trunk around the tail lights that de pressurizes the vehichle when the doors close, that should be checked if mice are a problem.
I am glad to hear that you now know a solution to the problem. Have you had the screen installed?
I said it was a desighn problem ! I talked to a service managein a neighbouring city and he said that they install a wire screen over the air intake so the mice do not enter the intake. After they get into the intake they chew a hole in the exhaust vent above the filter, from there the vehicle is their palace. A $5.00 fix at the factory Because the engineers ... Read More
One thing that I would suggest: Call Toyota. About 4 years ago, I had a seat belt release button that would stick sometimes. It needed to be replaced, but I was past the warranty by about 3 or 4 months. I called Toyota (the 800 number in your owner's manual, not the dealer) and explained the situation very nicely, how I was just a little past the warranty, how much I ... Read More
hold on, I didn't have a mouse problem, I replied to the question asking what happened after my car stalled a few times. No ego here, just an empty wallet.
Toyota knows its a defect and does crap to cover it. A MOUSE DEFECT ? Not sure how many Toyota vehicles made and sold over the years, but yours is the only one with a mouse problem and you claim Toyota is covering up some sort of defect. Wow what an ego
So was there a $1300.00 problem that allowed mice into your Corolla throu the electrical panel or did the mice chew the wires on the electrical panel to cause $1300.00 in damage?
Bahhh, it ended up being the electrical panel, I was 4,000 km's over my warranty, so the dealer said no go on covering it, brought it to the garage that my office uses and he did the work for 1300.00. Ticks me off beyond belief that Toyota knows its a defect and does crap to cover it. I'm very disappointed in them and will never buy a Toyota again.
Okay, so let me get this right, mice in your vehicle and you think either Toyota or your dealer is responsible for this? Hmmm! Maybe they just threw a $400.00 number out there just so you would go away? Don't get me wrong, I do understand that rodents and /or squirrels in a vehicle can wreck havoc, but how in the world could it possibly be someone else's fault? Don't you ... Read More
Hi I read your note on the forum and just thought I'd ask how you made out since it was wrote. Our letter would go much the same way with our 09 Corrola!

I have had my 2008 Corolla about 1 1/2 years. Recently there has been a squeaky noise in the area of the rear windshield. It gets much worse when the weather is hot. I took it in to Toyota and they could not find anything the first go round. I have apt to take back in. Has anyone had similar problem?
Sorry, I do not own a 2009 Corolla, I have a 2005 S with no paint problems that I can see. I also have a 2008 Matrix XRS which seems to be okay so far. Sorry to hear about this problem. Perhaps it is regional depending upon where the car was manufactured. They (Toyota) no longer use the lead based paint, so that or the lack of the proper hardeners may ... Read More
It wasn't a stupid lecture ! I was trying to legitimately resolve your problem. In fact didn't you say that you even tried my suggested glue traps on your own before you even heard from me?
Sorry to hear about such a weird situation but after doing some research its not all that un common. The one thing i did find was they will go into any make of car from a Geo to a Lexus depending on many of different sitiuations. Good luck hope you find a answer. http://www.wombatnation.com/2005/01/mice-ate-my-car The baby powder near the bottom of the artical i thought was a good idea MNF
The issue: Nobody seems to be talking about this yet. Since it is still early for the 09 Corolla S, I am not surprised. I wanted to start a blog so if anyone else is having similar problems and searched the internet, they would find something. When I had this problem last August and searched the net, I found nothing. I recently met someone who is having similar problems with her ... Read More
Thank you for your reassuring message. That is the MOST STUPID LECTURE I HAVE EVER HEARD. It seems to be pretty close to what I have heard from most of the people at the Toyota dealership. You seem to be closely related to the them - your "Knee-Jerk" type of response exhibits that trait. I have tried every trick (and believe me I mean every thing) in the book to stop ... Read More
I'd be surprised if you needed brakes - not impossible, but most people (depending on conditions) get way more miles than that! Tires, I could see, because most OEM tires are not great.

Interior air filter and engine air filter - yes, replace, but it takes all of 5 minutes to do both of them, and total OEM parts cost ... Read More
My problem (there's that pesky "P" word) isn't that it is Electric, its that it has no steering feel whatsoever, sort of like an old truck. Unacceptable in this day and age where we have trucks that actually HAVE steering feel these days. And before you chalk it up to being all electric, there are EPS systems that provide nice steering feedback and a healthy amount of "heft" to the helm. ... Read More
I bought a 2008 Toyota Corolla LE in November. Its at about 36000 miles. For the last few months there is a metal scraping noise apparently from the brakes the first time I press on them with every "trip." After braking once, I never get the sound again--until the next time I start the car and head out. It happens when I reverse, and when I go forward. I thought it ... Read More
Well, you definitely have a problem but it certainly isn't the car. Doesn't seem to be a hard problem to solve though. Set a couple of glue traps when parking for the evening and you should catch the culprets by morning.
I bought a brans spanking new 2008 Toyota Corolla CE and only a few weeks into the purchase have had mice getting into the passenger cabin. Has anyone had this problem before or do I have a problem car?
My 2008 Toyota Corolla LE 5-speed manual has achieved an average of 46mpg over the it's first year of life. (13000 miles) I use the hypermiling techniques taught at the www.cleanmpg.com website. The ScanGuage II is a very useful device that shows several pieces of fuel economy information simultaneously. Have found that a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) reading of 19 gives really great MPG on the highway.
This seems how all Toyota dealers act when they have a car with a common problem, they act like you are the only one. We have a Toyota Avalon with a transmission glitch and Toyota acts like we are the only one, and if you read on this site about 2005-2008 Avalons they have a lot of problems. So tell them that you are on to their game.
Hello, I need some assistance with a gas mileage issue I'm having. I purchased a brand new 2009 Corolla S around the beginning of november 2008. I 've traveled about 580 miles on the vehicle thus far, city driving mostly and some highway. The rating is 27 city and 35 highway. I understand the fuel economy varies based on driving habits and conditions but I'm only getting about 230-240 miles on ... Read More
I purchased a Toyota 2009 Rav4 Limited on Nov 10, 2008 with the Toyota navigation system. When I came near my house, none of the streets east of the main highway (including my street) appeared on the navigation system. I could not even enter my home address. This is a college town with a population of about 50,000 and is about 200 years old. My particular neighborhood is over 15 years ... Read More
Yeah, I'm aware that the Mazda3 is in its last year, and as it turns out, the Rabbit has already been replaced (in Europe) as well, so both of my two finalists are "lame-duck" cars. Appropriate given our current economic and political situation. ;) As far as which version of the cars; I drove the models that offered the best mix of fuel economy (my 25,000 annual commute miles were looming ...

Anyone know what the terms are being offered by Toyota Finance this month (Nov. 2008) on 2009 model cars? What would the money factor be for an 800+ FICO? Also, what residual should I expect on a 36mo. 12,000/yr lease of a Corolla base model? Is residual different at all for a standard vs. automatic transmission? I'm shopping for a lease right now on a 2009 Corolla base (standard trans.) with ... Read More

In 1997 bought my 95 Toyota Corolla DX used for $12,000. It had approximately 30K miles. Today, my Nellie has over 238,000 miles. I had purchased an extended warranty and before the warranty expired, parts failed and I had to replace the alternator, timing belt, and some other major engine work. Each incident was $50 out of pocket. Since then I have replaced the timing belt and water pump an additional ... Read More
I purchased a used 2006 Toyota Corolla (with 17,000 miles) this last Jan 2008 and have been following some of these discussions with interest and tracking my own results. This is my first post since it seems I have enough data now to make some comments. I certainly haven't reviewed all of these interesting posts, so excuse me if I am repeating some well known minutia. First of all, I think ... Read More
"What seems ironic to me is that the Civic, which seemed a bit overpriced since '06, suddenly seems less so. I have now driven the two back to back and while it is obvious the Corolla benefits from being quieter, pretty much everything else about the Civic seems better, even the weird dash displays." I waited for the 2009 Corollas to come out before making my decision. I was hoping that ... Read More
I just recently bought a 2008 Toyota Corolla S and was interested in upgrading the speakers. I'm not too familiar with audio systems for vehicles and i wasn't sure what kind i should look into. What would you recommend?
I'm trying to make the same decision myself. I have driven both, and a comparable Civic is $4,000 more than the Matrix that I am looking at. I find the Matrix is roomier, has a better driving position, and has more standard features than the Civic does. Also, you can add more options to the Matrix where as the Civic is pretty much purely package deals. I don't think the reliability ... Read More
On the Cobalt XFE, the big difference between the 5MT and 4AT on fuel economy is interesting. That is pretty rare these days. It's more common for the MT and AT numbers to be pretty close, or even for the AT to get slightly better EPA FE numbers than the MT. I wonder what Chevy did to the MT coupe to allow it to achieve those really high FE numbers--much higher ... Read More
[quote] Toyota Division Toyota Division passenger cars recorded May sales of 152,652 units, down 0.9 percent over the same period last year.

Another Si sedan owner chiming in in support of the Civic EX, assuming you don't want the Si for some reason. I haven't driven any Toyotas that recently, but they've always struck me as not quite as fun to drive as Hondas and the build quality never seemed any better than Honda. The main thing going for Toyota is that they seem more willing than any other manufacturer to stand behind ... Read More
Congrats on the Grad present! Either will be dependable and comfortable. I own a 2008 Civic Si Sedan and love it. I have driven the previous generations of the Corolla and Matrix. I can put it best this way: there's a recent Cadillac commercial where a very pretty young lady says "When you turn your car on, does it return the favor?" IMHO the last Toyotas (not including Lexus) capable of ... Read More
I'll be graduating from college in a few months and I'm getting a car as a graduation gift/commuter for work. I'm trying to decide between the 2009 Matrix and 2008 Civic. I have yet to test drive either, but after doing some research the Civic always seems to be a winner. I like the matrix mainly because of Toyota's reputation and its cargo space for hauling stuff. The Civic definitely seems ... Read More
