I purchased two Toyota Corolla's within the past 5 weeks. The Toyota ads on TV and the dealership said all the safety items had been fixed including the two I was looking at.

guess what. No. I received a recall notice for one of the cars....to fix the gas pedal due to floor mat issues.

I no longer trust Toyota to be honest nor do I trust the Toyota dealer here in Western NY.

Easy fix Bill, don't put all-weather rubber mats on top of the factory mats and make sure they are anchored correctly. Floor mat problems are the result of feeble minded people.

2010 corolla xle..interior windows CONSTANTLY fog up when outside temps go near or below freezing, and at any climate control setting EXCEPT full defrost at 78deg. or higher....with window partially open to admit fresh air. Dealer was perplexed...changed out AC evaporator suspecting a condensation problem (last spring) and wiped interior windows with rainex anti fog....summer and fall..no problems...now winter is back so is severe interior fogging...Dealer says all corollas do this...I personally do not agree..anyone else seen this????? Thanks

looks like toyota is still puting the screws to its customers.if they,at the dealership would be open with there customers about the vapor canister,there would be no dealers in the US.KEEP COMPLAINING,MAYBE SOMEONE AT TOYOTA WILL TAKE NOTICE.

The controls change modes..at least they give visual indications of doing so....The dealer checked the system (5 times !)They stated the following: 1. the system is operating properly, and 2.Do not use the recirc mode AT ALL beacuse it will fog the interior windows in cold weather...However as I mentioned in Dec 20th post, the interior of the windows fog up with excess moisture in all modes except full defrost(with windows cracked open to admit fresh air). I agree that the system sticking in "recirc" could certainly do this....Never heard or seen such a dramatic cold weather moisture problem....I test drove several other 2010 and 2011 corollas in 20 deg. winter weather...none had this interior fogging problem....Time to sell or trade !!!!! Thanks for the reply.....Lou

If the dealer insists "they all do that", ask him to show you a few that do. He's giving you the "ole soft shoe".

I agree with you, and I did follow this route with the dealers shop foreman. He could not produce a window fogging Corolla! And when I suggested that the recirc dampener, flap, door, or whatever diverts interior air back in, may be sticking in other modes,(except defrost) he looked at me as if I were speaking another language. I don't know how air flow is actually routed through the ducts of the climate control system, but worse yet, I don't think the dealers mechanics know either!!! I'm pretty sick of the team of "experts" at this dealership. I would not trust them to work on my anvil after this fiasco!! I feel like many (not all)of todays young mechanics are too wrapped up deciphering tester codes and flow charts rather than using basic common sense problem solving skills...Thanks for your reply

Hi Lou,
I live in Canada and it gets pretty cold here too.
It is just a wild guess, does your car has a leak somewhere?
if ther is water under the mats or in the trunk, the complete heating system screws up. My car is bone dry inside, never had your problem (really, I am not making this up)However,my neighbour was hit in the back and ever since the car was "Repaired" he has a problem with fogging up windows. The spare wheel well
was full of mud.
It is a stab in the dark but I love my Toyota.
For a measely tax in under $20.000 car, it is hard to beat.
Lou, I hope you can find a fix or change dealers.
Ciao,

Bas.

Hi Bastiaan...Thanks for the information...Other than the interior window fogging in winter I have no complaints about my Corolla....Great on gas and after 53000 miles...not a single mechanical issue...A great vehicle....I have checked for leaks and dampness...That excessive moisture is coming from somewhere..(Dealer suggests that it's my breathing!!!!)...Have not checked spare wheel well...and I will do that. Thanks for that tip...Any help is appreciated...Lou (have never had any collision damage or related accident)

I bought a new 2009 corolla. at 30K it needed a water pump, then the blower fan went out. At 60K the alternator went out. Then the electronic window switch went out. Now the car holds moister and I smell gas coming from underneath the car. They say its the gas I use or the settings I use. COME ONE..........can we say JUNK

Bought a used 2009 Toyota Corolla with 38,000 miles from a dealership. Drove 2 years --water pump went out with no light coming on indicating a problem---major engine problems - having to replace engine at only 80,000 miles. Owned other Toyota's with no problems. What's with the 2009 - besides being a piece of junk? Just saw the exact same problem on another website so I am sure there are others out there.

I'm on my 2nd Corolla S. with the first one, an oxygen sensor went out in the first year. Then after 5 years, i had a major transmission issue so bad that one dealer told me they wouldnt put the money into the car. Because i have a relative that works for a Toyota dealer, i traded that one and got a second one. At 48000 miles, model 2010, my a/c is blowing air, but not getting cold at all. Ive done all of my regular service appointments. I just dont feel like the Corolla is a very good car. Really disappointed and it's not meeting my expectations.

Drive train is covered for 6 yrs/60K. At 5 years old, were you over mileage?

I have a 2010 toyota Matrix 40,000 miles has same motor as corolla, just had to have the head gasket replaced,heads reworked,and oil pan gasket replaced. All covered under warranty but very concerning on how long these motors will run.

I'd say that was very unusual. Did the engine overheat to cause this? While any car can have any problem, the Corolla/Matrix has been a very reliable car.
