2010 Toyota Corolla Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Engine -- Verified

The mass air flow sensor on higher mileage cars occasionally needs to be cleaned or replaced if sluggish acceleration is experienced or the Check Engine Light is illuminated with a mass air flow meter sensor fault code stored.

Brakes -- Verified

At higher mileages, an anti-lock brake system wheel speed sensor may wear out and illuminate the ABS warning light. It is recommended to replace the sensor with a factory part and be sure to clean all rust and debris from the mounting area because the mounting distance is critical. Failure to do so may result in the new sensor setting false trouble codes.

Toyota is recalling certain 2008-2010 Highlander, and 2009-2010 Corolla, Venza, and Matrix models because an unsecured or incompatible floor mat may cause the accelerator pedal to get stuck in the wide open position.

Body, Interior & Misc., February 5, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Toyota is recalling 2005–2010 Avalon; 2007–2010 Camry, 2009–2010 Corolla, Corolla Matrix, and Rav4; 2010 Highlander; 2008–2010 Sequoia; and 2007–2010 Tundra models because the sliding surface of the friction lever may become smooth during operation, which can cause condensation. This may cause the accelerator pedal to become harder to depress, slower to return, or to become stuck in a partially depressed position, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a reinforcement bar in the accelerator pedal so it will operate smoothly.

2010 Toyota Corolla Reviews

My 2002 5-speed Corolla has 117K miles on it. My last 2 cars had over 250K each when I replaced them and I had high hopes for this one. I think it's one of the rare "lemon" Corollas, though. I bought it in 2007 with 42K miles after having it inspected by my mechanic. After 7 months it needed a new transmission ($2K). A year later it needed a catalytic converter ($750K). Now I'm being told it needs struts ($1.5K). I've never had to replace any of these things in any other car I've ever owned! I'm wondering if I should just cut my losses and get rid of it, but in between the expensive repairs it's been reliable with only regular maintenance needed. I wish there was some way to know if something else big is going to go. I'm thinking that some of the issues are because the car must have sat a lot before I bought it, the mileage in a 5 year old car was so low which I thought was a good thing then.

I have had this car for seven months and this is my fourth corolla. I like the added safety features and the jack for the mp3 player.
The lack of intermiitent speed selection for the wipers really sucks.

Extreme pressure change when driving over 40 mph.

I have owned my 2010 Toyota Corolla S for 3 months and I already have paint peeling on my front bumper and prob 10 rock chips on my hood. The dealership is pretty much giving me the run around.
Have to wait til a Toyota paint rep comes to look at it! UGH soooooo frustrating!!! Thinking I'm prob gonna have to get legal advice....

our new 2010 Corolla with 500 miles(thats all)on has an extremely rusted exhaust and udercarriage (bolts corroded, metal rusted through), are there other corollas out there with same problem?
