No, Toyota recommends a oil change every 10,000 miles with ow-20! NO. Only on the model year 2011 and newer Corollas. Yes, it would probably be fine, but since Toyota did not say it, they could deny a warranty claim.
The pumps were bad in the 2009's. I had mine replaced under warranty in 2011 with 15,000 miles on then car. In fact, I didn't even ask, my Corolla was in for routine service when they replaced it, no questions asked. I don't believe it was a recall but there was a TSB issued for the 2009 water pumps. As I understand it, if an owner has a water pump problem ... Read More
It is my experience and observations that I trust most. Recently I stop at different dealerships because I am really thinking of trading in my Toyota for another make. What I can see is many 2010 and 2011 Toyota Corollas that have already been traded in for other makes. Out of curiosity, I look at these cars and what I notice is tons of more chips and scratches than on mine! ... Read More
Okay so your having a paint problem, if you have a 2011 it's understandable that you would be upset. But I believe something like that should still be covered under your warranty. But on the other hand apparently your not a previous Toyota owner. If you had been you'd understand that a Toyota is one of the most reliable, most cost efficient, built to last many years and hundreds of thousands ... Read More
My experience with my Toyota Corolla 2011, which is still less than an year old, taught me that probably they made these cars to last you no more than 5-6 years. Just when you pay it off, you have to buy another new one. And they expect it be Toyota again? No way, never ever again for me! I cannot cause myself another nightmare, where you spend so much time and ... Read More
I have a 2011 Toyota Corolla and find the steering difficult to keep on center. The car seems to drift all over the place, especially with wind. IT FEELS LIKE YOU ARE DRIVING ON A BOWLING BALL. A couple of weeks ago I got the lead tech at Toyota, who adjusted the alignment to have a little more toe (within tolerances). The car was set at ABSOLUTE ALIGNMENT??? This adjustment made ...

It's probably your alternator. I'm a mechanic and my girlfriend drives this car. She has put in four replacement alternators. When her new alternator is going bad, her engine sounds like a diesel truck. This model year toyota, came factory with a bad part. Only certain vin numbers are incorporated. Toyota released a technical service bulletin (T-SB-0004-11, date of issue January 5 2011) that under warranty, covers cars under 3 years ... Read More
Mine is getting worse and worse. Now as the wax is washing out (it was waxed in May), I can see such dirt trapped in the paint on other places which I did not see before: beneath one of the mirrors, a bubble in the paint close to the mirror, a bubble on the other side of the trunk, close to the number plate where I got the missing spot of ... Read More
Sounds like you have a good argument. I simple test would be to try to scrape it off with a fingernail, if it comes off it's indeed something you drove over, if not and it's under the clear coat then it's on Toyota. My question to you is why would you not buy another Toyota? Do you think another car manufacturer would have just automatically given you a new car or ... Read More
i bought a 2012 corolla magnetic grey with 5000 miles i found tiny orange spots in the paint around the lower part of the car the field rep is going to look at it next week but the paint an body man at toytota said that shes probably going to say its something i drove over to get on the paint my arguement is how did it actually get through the ...

Hi econfused and sabdul, Your 2012 Toyota Corolas do not have auto headlights. Starting the engine will turn your daytime running lights on; however, your headlights will not turn on automatically at dark space. Look at the switch on your steering wheel, and you will see no auto option. Toyota stopped installing auto headlights with 2011 Toyota Corolla. 2010 Corolla has them, but not 2011-12 Corollas. Sorry about that!
Call Toyota US Corp HQ in Los Angeles and file a complaint and have them assign it to a regional person. You can find the toll free number on the website or in your owners manual. But, in your case I would not deal w/ dealers right now. I would escalate it to Corp HQ. Get them involved. And I agree that luck has nothing to do with it. It is ... Read More
Thanks for the quick response. To some extend you calmed me down explaining to me that not all Toyota frames are manufactured by the same manufacturer and that even the frames for Tundras are no longer manufactured by the one who caused all the rust frame problems. This means that in my case it is not the whole frame that is defective and the rust spot I caught can be easily ... Read More
The Tacomas and Tundras had frame issues, that company no longer makes frames for Toyota. Not saying your the "ONLY" unlucky one with some paint defects, but I am saying there is no wide spread paint problems with Toyotas right now. Your paint problem could happen in production to any new car manufactured today. Cars are painted by machines and even machines make an error occasionally.
I do not think I am the only unlucky one with the paint issue. Toyota just do not admit how serious the problem is. Most of the complaints come from Camry owners. Maybe because it is more expensive car ... I tried to have the problem fixed through another dealership but no results. They assured me I won't get rust soon. And guess what, today after washing the car and wiping ... Read More
I own a 2011 Toyota Corolla LE and like many others feel steering drift at 50 + mph. I did not receive any assitance from my dealership on this problem aside lip service. I wanted to write to everyone that is having this problem and inform them that they need to CALL TOYOTA NATIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 1-800-331-4331. Reporting this problem on the national level will cause Toyota to look into ... Read More
Just had the engine in our 2009 Corolla replaced (under PowerTrain warranty) as water pump failed and caused engine and associated systems to fail. We purchased this car "used" with 29,000 miles in 2011. Mechanic told me that water pumps on any 2009 Corollas that come in for ANY service are automatically checked for pre-mature failure. We are very thankful that all parts, including an entire new engine, and labor was ... Read More
While you are correct that there was a TSB out on the water pump I highly doubt your going to convince any dealership that a water pump is part of the drive train, really ! They were replacing any customer's water pump who requested it to be replaced. I had mine replaced on my 2009 in 2011 right before the warranty expired and I was experiencing no problems whatsoever.
Very, very few Corolla paint problems - you just happened to be one of the unlucky ones - hold Toyota to repair/repaint
In November 2011 I bought Toyota Corolla 2011 brand new. The car is magnetic grey. Because of the short days in November in IL I was not able to see any paint issues. I wash the car at the dealership. In December after washing the car and attempting to wipe the water under the driver's side door I noticed a wierdly looking spot. I touched it and it was sticky as ... Read More
What is the tire problem? Is your Corolla going through tires, too? I put on a set of Michelin X radials after the goodyears wore out and after 6k miles the tires are already 1/4 worn. They are supposed to last 80k. The goodyears were replaced at 12k, but I figured they were crappy OEM tires. I think it's a suspension issue. I hear a loud clunk when the (front, I ... Read More
Hi: I posted earlier but my post disappeared. After 14 years of good service the car started to burn oil. The dealer said that there must be sludge clogging the engine. I am now looking to buy another car. 1)I am wondering if the problem of small piston or piston rings or the holes behind the piston being small etc. etc. have been resolved by Toyota? 2) Do i have the ... Read More
Hi; Just want to give an update. As i mentioned above the dealer cleaned the pan, the pick up tube and the screen. He also opened the valve cover and cleaned the sludge. I am driving the car for the last 2 days and 50 miles and no oil light has come on, however the engine temperature stays at 40%. There are no guarantees, but i got some time to buy ... Read More
I just wanted everyone who has had this problem that the tsb fix does work. I bought a used 2010 Corolla S for my daughter and it was so dangerous to drive that I contemplated getting rid of it after having it only a few weeks. I called the Toyota Dealer in Traverse City Michigan and they put in the new computer module without any hassles. The service manager had never ... Read More
Just bought a new 2011 Toyota corolla and have the same problem and NHTSA says there has not been anyone other than myself that has complained about this problem. The car road walks above 70 MPH
Is it the Toyota Corolla 2011 base or LX? Can you give the dealer name?
Yesterday, I bought Toyota Corolla 2011 new Auto, with ex package (xm radio, usb port and bluetooth). The MRSP =19130. I got it for 16600 OTD with 0% for 36 months. I`m from VA and I bought from MD.
Corolla LE with mats - 16990 OTD inc. title and registration for 4 yrs Portland, OR so I didnt pay any sales tax... I could have gotten 750$ lower i.e., 16250 had I opted out of the Toyota finance option....and financed through a credit union/paid cash I got a 0% for my a lil over avg credit score which is why I went for it.... I did 1k down.... I think ... Read More
Did you end up buying one yet?? You missed out, they were selling for 13,900 earlier this year (before the earthquake). I'd say at this point 16,660 is more than fair considering that is pretty much invoice minus holdback...
Virginia has very high sales tax.

You're right! You'll never convince me THAT I HAVE an EPS steering issue. I already acknowledged that others might though.
Corolla is more sporty, better pick up speed, you can take exits at faster speed than camry, its steering wheel is lighter especially compared to Camry 20011 which i rented and drove few days back. I sold my camry 1999 but would say without any doubt it is lighter to drive especially its steering wheel as compared to new 2011 camry. I rented for two weeks toyota corolla 2011 and for ...

Hi, I am being offered 18866 for a 2011 corolla S with moonroof, upgraded audio including blue logic, ipod input ( it is a package), floor mats. This before dealer fee of $399 and tax. 0% financing . Is this good?
I wouldn't buy from someone who has been dishonest about the condition of the car...
This car has minor hail damage at about 3 or 4 places (the ones, i could find) and has about 20 miles on it. It has been in the lot for about 70 days. Do qualify for the 1.9 % APR. At one end, the price seems to be attractive and the other end buying a new car with damage seems a no-no even though the dings are very small. The ... Read More
That is a very good price for the Corolla LE! I'm not sure about areas and such, but yesterday I called about 3 different dealerships for a 2011 Corolla LE Automatic and the absolute lowest price I was quoted at was $17720 (after a $500 rebate). 2 years ago my mom and sister researched cars and got a great deal on an 06 Civic. Unfortunately, the first year at the dorms ... Read More
"I'm glad you like your Corolla, but it's not my cup of tea. Whenever Hertz tries to give me one, I try to get something else." Last July, I was stuck in an insurance rental for 32 days. Some twit on her cell phone rear-ended my Mazda3 and did over $8k in damage and it took that long to repair it to my satisfaction (I refused it twice because I wasn't ... Read More
Thanks for your reply, Backy! When I asked about fuel economy, I compared 2011 Corolla and 2011 Elantra. In MT test, Elantra got 25.6 MPG fuel economy vs. Corolla's 27.6 MPG fuel economy. I am trying to make a point here! Even though, Elantra has 6 speed Auto Transmission and "so fuel efficient" engine in Real World Driving, Corolla has better gas millage-think about that Corolla has only 4 Speed Auto ... Read More
I bought my new 2010 Toyota Corolla S in October of 2010..In January 2011 we had 4 days of really bad ice and snow storms. The ice that accumulated on my car caused scratches on the paint. My car is black and the scratches show a white primer. At the time my car had less than 5000 miles on it and has since received scratches near the door handles, just from ... Read More
It does not matter if you buy cheaper or more expensive car. All new cars come with EPS. I have 2011 Toyota Corolla S, and I love how my car drives and steer. I had to rent a Chevy Aveo, and after driving it, The Corolla steering was like driving a Lexus or MB, compared to Aveo's steering.....:)
After considering the '11 Corolla "S" for purchase, and reading the latest posts here concerning Toyota's eliminating certain features once available, I'm afraid this machine is OFF my small list of new vehicles to check out. Wotta pity. Toyota sure has blown it, BIG time, with the 2011 Corolla. Peace!<-AladdinSane<- -
So you bought this new car sight unseen ? ? ? I guess I would ask why the big rush ? Now your stuck with it! I gotta tell ya though, I'm a very big Toyota fan, (as everyone on this site would attest to), but if I were in the market for another car I would steer away from the new Corolla also as I, like you, would definitely miss ... Read More
Yes, I completely agree with you on everything you've mentioned! I too would be disappointed knowing I purchased a new car with "expected" features found in last year's model! I can't figure out why Toyota is making these poor decisions by cutting costs (eliminating once common, practical standard features as found in last model year) thinking customers aren't going to notice these obvious details. In my opinion, the 2011 Corolla is ... Read More
The 2011 Toyota Corolla uses variable assist column mounted electric steering. It has not changed. Same lousy subpar handling. Wobbly loose steering at all speeds and the inability to maneuver the car adequately. Truly an unbelievable joke of a car.
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
Whether or not I was wrong on the Hyundai doesnt really matter. As far as the 2011 Corolla is concerned I have yet to find out. I figured your company would eventually have to switch from the extremely poor performing column type EPS that a a great many people got stuck with. A lot of people got screwed with really lousy subpar handling cars. It remains to be seen whether the ... Read More
biffpreston1, I'm not sure what grade your English professor gave you on your research project, but I hope it wasn't an "A". You have hurt the quality of this discussion forum by spreading inaccurate information about the 2010 & 2011 Toyota Corolla Electronic Power Steering systems. I'd like to set the record straight for everyone reading here, because better understanding the new EPS systems in the new cars is important. I ... Read More
I recommend 2011 Toyota Corolla S. It is an excellent choice of contemporary vehicle......and I am not Toyota employee :) I have had a chance to drive for some time new 2004 Toyota RAV4, 2005 Solara, 2009 Matrix, 2010 Prius and now 2011 Corolla in the past several years, and I can say that 2011 Toyota Corolla is a very good ride. In addition, I like the refreshed styling of the ... 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
It is expected that 2012 Corollas will begin production in November 2011. This is most likely due to the new Mississippi plant not being ready until later this year. This production timeline for Toyota is very accurate and a pretty good predicition of when we see models appearing: http://phharval.com/home/news-and-media/motor-news/929-toyota-updates-build-out-- dates-for-2011-models-and-start-up-dates-for-2012-models
Justin: I was all ready too pick up my new 2011 Fiesta SES today but I am not. I was dealing with 2 local Ford dealers and when I wrote the dealer who I did not buy from to thank them for their time the salseman replied with a very nasty email. I then told him that I was sorry but I had to pick because today is the last day ... Read More
I test drove the 2011 Corolla and hated it so I just bought a 2011 Fiesta SES. For the same money I got leather, heated seats, Sync, satellite radio, push button start, Dual clutch automated 6 speed transmission and it is rated way better than the Corolla. I just traded my last Toyota in for it so hey Toyota are you listening? Take your 4 speed transmission Model T and re-design ... Read More
You might not be right about that! Toyota changes the design of its cars on the second year after refresh, so I believe they will have 2012 Toyota Corolla in August 2011, and later on introduce completely new design 2013 Toyota Corolla in January-April 2012. This is just a guess; however, they have to do it, if they want to be competitive to new Focus, Elantra, Civic....
It seems the 2010 Corolla inventory ran out in some places more rapidly than others. In Columbus, OH area, Tansky has 71, Germain has 24, Toyota West have 18 and Toyota direct has 15: that is 128 even without counting the independent dealers! I guess anyone looking for 2010 models still should look into nearby city inventories, or may be even the state next door, since 2010 models have much bigger ... Read More
The dealership where I bought my 2010 Corolla S ($14150 invoice) no longer has any 2010. I just checked their internet inventory. I bought mine more than two weeks ago and at that time they still have a few left. In fact, just last week, they still listed two S with tinted windows for $14588. They are listing now a manager's special for 2010 LE at $13,488. http://www.miltonruben.com/Toyota%20Specials.html They are listing ... Read More
Similar to the 2011 Corolla being produced much later than usual (Dec. 2010) it is expected that the 2012 Corolla will begin production in November 2011. I know it is quite early and the 2011s were recently released, but I am wondering what Toyota has in store for the 2012 Corolla and when the 11th generation will officially debut. There are rumors on sites as late as 2014. Will the current ... Read More
Sorry for the late reply, I was a little busy. Mine is a base model: so no power window, key-less entry or power locks. But it has the all weather package (snow tires, more powerful heater, rear heating duct, anti-chip tape) and carpeted floor mats (5 pcs). I got it from Tansky Sawmill Toyota. It was the last 2010 base model they had. Last time I checked, Germain had two of ... Read More
Thank you for your in depth reply about your new Corolla and congratulations with your purchase! Don't get me wrong, I really like the Corolla. I just contacted Toyota and chatted with a product specialist who confirmed the auto on/off headlights are completely discontinued across the Corolla lineup. In my 04 Corolla, I LOVED this feature. It too had DRL, but I just liked not having to ever tinker with lights ... Read More
I just purchased 2011 Corolla S and I love it so far! Yes, there is no auto on/off headlights; however, there are so many more things that Toyota has upgraded to 2011. For instance: -power steering is EPS rack and pinion, so it is pleasure to drive it. -cabin is very quiet. -ride is excellent. -auto transmission is smooth (it is still 4 speed; however, it is smooth and gas millage ... Read More
Thank you for your reply. You're right, auto on/off headlights have been eliminated across the Corolla lineup. But yet the housing for the sensor is fitted on the dashboards. Toyota's marketing division must have decided last minute to save money and eliminate this feature to save them "big" money! I really don't know what Toyota is thinking these days. Just a continuous pattern of them cutting costs (eliminating once standard equipment) ... Read More
2011 Toyota Corolla S does not have auto on/off headlights. LE might have them....but I doubt it. I agree with you that they should have them not only on Corolla, but also on all other Toyotas.... If this makes you happy, the 2010-11 Prius does not have them either....
Does anyone know if the automatic on/off headlights are still standard on the 2011 Corolla? I know they come with daytime running lights that turn on automatically regardless of whether it's light out or not. For 2010 Corollas and earlier years dating back to 2003, there used to be a small black light sensor located on the dashboard next to the vent for the defroster. I was looking at the 2011s ...

Biff states - "Variable assist column mounted steering is a an outdated form of electric steering that performs very poorly. The new electric assist rack and pinion steering systems, like the ones Ford is now using, are vastly superior in performance to the column mounted EPS that Toyota is using. There are much bigger differences between the column type EPS in the corolla and the electric assist rack and pinion systems ... Read More
Toyota is listening to its customers. 2011 Toyota Corolla has EPS rack and pinion system. Go check out their website and make it a day:) I just purchased a 2011 Toyota Corolla S, and I like it very much so far!
Sjarea, I own a Godawful driving 2009 Toyota Corolla with EPS and I can tell you a few things about EPS and the particular type of EPS they have in this particular make and model of car. This guy that trolls this message board defending Toyota against any and all negative criticism is not being honest with you or anyone else he has corresponded with about the EPS issue pertaining to ...

shouravv, I had the centering issue. The TSB-0140-10 fix did NOT stiffen the feel. As far as I can tell it remained the same. I think the best description I've heard to describe it is - video-game like. No road feedback at all and every effortless when turning. But, toyota is known for light steering feel and I knew that as a previous owner (except for my 91 pick-up that had ... Read More
I am a bit confused about the actual price that you paid before taxes and license. Did you pay $13,200 for the car plus 599 doc fee for a total of $13,800 or 13,800 plus 599 for a total of $14,400 before taxes and license? Which number, $13,800 or $14,400? Furthermore, $13,800 is less than $15,500 so why should you wait longer to pay $15,500 if you could pay $13,800 today? ... Read More
Came across this article while conducting a search on Google. It looks like the Corolla COULD POSSIBLY be redesigned in and out. I don't know how reliable this article is, but could definitely explain the delay of the the 2011 Corolla production until late this year. http://www.prlog.org/10930220-florida-toyota-dealer-to-welcome-2011-corolla-this- -december.html
FWIW, C/D singled out the 2011 Corolla as perhaps the one Toyota model that will have significant changes for 2011. They said details are not available, but the car would be announced at the LA Auto Show.
"... In my honest opinion, I don't think Toyota is going to be doing any big improvements for the 2011 Corolla..." What makes you think so? How else can you explain the unusual delayed arrival of the 2011 models, which should've gone on sale on Feb. 2010 (like Toyota does with most other models)? Toyota is definitely doing a lot of things wrong lately. No question about it, and no matter ... Read More
Most folks don't buy a Corolla for any kind of driving excitement...rather for the reliability and fuel numbers. Fun isn't a variable when describing this car. Have had 2 over the years and were great appliances. If I bought today, I'd probably get the XLE or the S model, as I prefer the extra's like alloys & upgraded sound systems. Prefer the looks of my '06 Civic LX better but one ... Read More
I apologize. The link mentions 5 models. However, I did not specify that the Base and the S models also come with a standard manual transmission. So in addition to the LE, S, Base automatic, a total of 5 models should be offered. Again, I don't know how reliable this info. is. No information on the XLE or XRS models, both VERY hard to find models here in New England. If ... Read More
I think I am going to keep my Avalon for a few years. Thought about trading it in for a Corolla, but I am actually getting accustomed to the Avalon. Love the room and the comfortable ride. However, I miss the smooth transmission on my 04 Corolla. No gear hunting, pulling back or "confusion". As mentioned in previous discussions, I am disappointed with the lack of quality materials and workmanship with ... Read More
I came across some information regarding the 2011 Corolla. It seems as though Toyota is going to discontinue production of the XLE and XRS models for 2011. Three models will be offered, Base, LE, and S. Other changes include colors. Blue Streak, Desert Sand Mica, and Capri Sea Metalllic have all been discontinued. Sandy Beach replaces the Desert Sand and Nautical Blue replaces the Blue Streak. Supposedly no green color will ... Read More
You said a mouthful and are so correct! I could not agree any more with your speculations about the 2011 Corolla. Toyota definitely has some "house cleaning" to do with the current generation Corolla. Both mechanically and cosmetic for that matter. This explains the delay of the 2011 model year production. Production of 2011s are to begin this November and the cars should show up at dealerships in December or January. ... Read More
You have a 2006 and you are pleased - that's correct. Models prior to 2009 were much better than current models. Toyota does not reveal anything about the 2011's, but there will most probably be more than just "some minor cosmetic changes". We can be assured that they will improve the interior quality, improve steering feel, and some more issues that so many drivers are complaining about. As of now, the ... Read More
"Better keep your 2010 than, as the 2011 Camry has it as well as almost all other new cars." Toyota's website shows the 2011 Camry to have "Variable-assist power rack-and-pinion". No mention of EPS except for the hybrid. I know EPS is probably coming to most all new cars in the future. Hopefully it will be improved considerably by the time I need another new car.
It looks like Toyota will be building the Corolla at a new plant in Mississippi. Here is a news article discussing it. Production will not begin until the fall, which could explain the delay of the 2011 model year. http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100617/us_nm/us_toyota_mississippi_4
Not that this information is 100% accurate, but it does look like Toyota is delaying the release of the 2011 Corolla until December. As far back as I can recall, this hasn't happened before with the Corolla. Toyota usually begins assembling the new model year in early March and cars reach dealer lots in April. Here is some information about the 2011 model: http://iguida.com/2011-toyota-corolla
My biggest regret ever is trading in my 2004 Corolla LE for a 2010 Avalon. The 2004 Corolla was one excellent car. Mine had 37,000 miles and was literally like new! It had every possible option for that model year, side airbags, ABS, sunroof, FACTORY leather interior, alloys, etc. It took me literally two years to find this car. No dealer in my region would special order this car with these ... Read More
Sooner or later, Toyota will need to implement many of these feature, if they'll want to stay competitive. The upcoming Chevy Cruze promises to be a hit, (might be another reason why Toyota waits with 2011 model until December - to check out features & packages of the Cruze), the redesigned Ford Focus next year is also very promising, and even for now, the Corolla (once upon a time the leader ... Read More
So far what I've researched, the only POSSIBLE changes for 2011 include a standard USB for iPod, and a new 5-speed automatic transmission (on all models other than the XRS) to increase fuel economy. Obviously there are no guarantees we'll see these changes for 2011, but it would be wise for Toyota to implement them at this time, especially to compete with other cars in this class. I wish Toyota continued ... Read More
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
The 2010 Corolla is a new design. If there are any issues, Toyota will correct them. Recalls are very common and essential to maintain quality standards. Things go wrong with machines. The difference between manufacturers is the way they stand behind their product. It is true that a newer model may be worth more down the road. I think you may make out better taking advantage of current incentives than worrying ... Read More
I am right along with you on Corollas being my favorite car. I learned how to drive on a 1989 Corolla sedan. Love it and still own it, though it has excessive body rot. Current odometer is 148,000 miles. Engine runs like new. When the 9th generation Corolla launched, I fell in love and had to have one. I was in my second year of college and wanted a new car. ...

"...There are no significant changes for 2011. Buy a 2010 now and get a deal..." How do you know that? I am 90% certain that Toyota will do "something" about the steering issue. And maybe a few other known issues. They're in a position that they must care for their customers now more than ever. Otherwise how can you explain changing model years in December?? For a Toyota? Something that never ... Read More
Does anyone know of any details regarding the 2011 Corolla? Will there be any changes/minor facelifts? I think Toyota is going to prolong the manufacturing of the 2011 Corolla. According to an online source (please see link), the 2011s will not be available until this coming December or January. Typcially Toyota starts to assemble new model year Corollas in the spring (around this time of year). http://www.phharval.com/images/stories/News-and-Media/Motor-Company-News/US/2010- /030910ToyotaUS2.pdf Could this delay ...

It's definitely a problem with the Corolla (and yes, the problem carried over to the 2010 models. (For some reason Toyota changes model years in February before). I believe Toyota will fix the steering on 2011. I don't believe it is a "problem" and I don't agree that it needs "fixing" I'm sure the steering is pleasurably responsive by design. Perhaps you just can't adjust to such responsive steering. I think ... Read More
Well, as I pointed out before, many cars are switching to EPS, for example the 2010 Ford Fusion, and the steering is rated as very good in most opinions (only here on Edmunds they say that the non-ESP models feel better). It's definitely a problem with the Corolla (and yes, the problem carried over to the 2010 models. (For some reason Toyota changes model years in February before). I believe Toyota ... Read More
Moving the clock is the only BIG issue, IMHO, but they won't do that until MAYBE the 2011, when they normally make bigger changes. 2010 is only the second year of the 10th generation Corolla, and Toyota normally does not make any larger changes until the third year. I've seen all the other complaints that you listed above on Carspace and other forums, but the big one is the clock. I ... Read More
Why? It was a serious statement, no intent to be funny at all. I think it would be funnier if I were to say, "I am a two-time Corolla owner and three-time Toyota owner (very nearly 4 times but for some delivery problems) and I absolutely loathe Corollas and Toyotas. That's exactly why I bought those cars, and why I have the 2011 Prius in my sights for our next long-term ... Read More
I will drive the Corolla before forming a final "consider/not consider" opinion. But please tell me, why is it unacceptable to form an initial opinion--in this case a negative one--of the new Corolla based on a lot of info, including several reviews/test drives by professionals, but it is fine for others to form an initial opinion without driving the car, if that opinion is positive? And why is it "beating a ... Read More
if you analize the toyota design strategy you will find a pattern that follows this way. Lexus box modelo 2000 to 2005 tranfer the design to corolla 2003, then corolla 2003 tranfer the design to yaris o echo 2006. Now is the same.... Lexus and Camry tranfer the box to corolla 2008, and then in 2011 corolla tranfer the box to Echo. This design have some logic if you think about ... Read More
Have the new xD engine as the standard engine in the CE and S. Then make the new 2.0 optional in the S, and standard in the LE, adding another 20HP or so. Then make the 2.0 standard for all Corollas in 2011. That should bolster the lineup. Toyota wouldn't do that, doh. :( DrFill
