#1 - Car Stall problem of the 2011 Toyota Corolla
I bought a used 2011 Toyota Corolla from beaver Toyota in santa fe, new mexico in September 2012. From the beginning I noticed a slight hesitation while driving. It felt like all of a sudden the car would slow down for just a couple of seconds, like a delay of some kind. I took it to the dealer and they felt nothing. It kept happening and I took it back and they drove and felt nothing. Finally, I was driving back from church in the daytime, thank god, and it just stalled like someone has just unplugged it (and its not electric) and all the engine lights came on and I made it to the emergency lane scared to death. I called aaa and they said let it sit for few minutes and try again and it started right up. He suggested I drive to a service station but it was Sunday and no one was open. I went into the dealer later that week and they didn't feel anything, no hesitation at all. I kept feeling it and my roommate drove it once thought she felt something. Took to back again and sat 5 hours while they ran diagnostics and said it showed nothing. They did replace a bolt I noticed the head had broken off on the license plate . . . Just mentioned in passing & that was $110 because the service rep said they had to drill thru the back plate to remove and put in new one! I would have never agreed to that. I looked on line and found an indpendant Toyota authorized repair shop that had great reviews and went there. Toy automan. They took me in at my appt time, one hour later the nice owner came out and handed me a release from Toyota dated September 6, 2011 that stated 2011 Corollas may exhibit a "monetary rpm decrease above 40 mph and/or reduced engine braking". I'm so tired of going into this dealer and getting nowhere. They had to know about this notice from Toyota and I must be naive realizing that a Toyota service dept. Would put a customer in danger for money. Help!. This car stall issue occurred Wednesday, October 12, 2011.

#5 - Car Stall problem of the 2005 Toyota Corolla
The vehicle was a 2005 Toyota Corolla. Toyota issued a technical service (#ac002-06) bulletin regarding the condenser not being properly protected for the 05 and 06 Corolla models. They said that you could take the car to the dealership and they would install netting around the condenser- but if it is already broken- then you are out of luck. Mine has been broken for two years-now I am now spending over $500 to replace the condenser and my CO-worker drives an 06 model and hers has been broken for a year. This is a safety concern for people driving in extreme heat. We are taking a family trip to nv this weekend, so I had to bite the bullet and get mine fixed, but this is ridiculous. How can they admit a design flaw and then not fix it:( also- my car lost 4 hubcaps within 2 weeks from purchasing it and I have noticed several others around town with the same problem. While I got some cheap ones to replace the ones I lost- having your hubcaps fly off is a definite safety issue and concern. This car stall issue occurred Jul. 1, 2010.
#6 - Car Stall problem of the 2004 Toyota Corolla
The vehicle involved is a 2004 Toyota Corolla. I was driving at 70 mph on the interstate when the car stalled out. We were able to pull to the side of the road luckily. It did start again but stalled again if I went over 40 mph. I had replaced the transmission the week before and had a transmission place check it out. They said the transmission is fine and that the error code is for the ecm. I had taken the care back to my transmission place (certified transmission in bellevue ne. ) and he had the same answer for me. I attempted to work with Toyota on this through their customer complaint dept. They referred me to nick anderson (customer care manager) at bellevue Toyota. He didn't care that the car is unsafe to drive or that it stalled on us going 70 mph on the interstate. All he cared about is that the care is over miles on the extended warranty (80,000) and he wouldn't do anything for me at all. I believe in companies that back there product and I no longer believe in Toyota. I have found out that there is a very strong chance that the reason I had to replace the transmission on this auto is because of the ecm that was misdiagnosed as transmission issues. I believe this to be true because I am having the same stalling issues that I had before the new transmission was put in. I feel that Toyota should at the very least repair/replace the faulty ecm at no additional cost to me. It was Saturday, April 14, 2012 when this car stall issue occurred.

#23 - Car Stall problem of the 2007 Toyota Corolla
On Friday, March 12, 2010, I was driving my 2007 Toyota Corolla home on my lunch hour and my car stalled twice on a sharp turn. I nearly lost control on the turn because the steering became (quite unexpectedly) very difficult. At first I didn't realize the car had stalled, causing the steering problem. That was the first time the car stalled. I immediately took it to my local Toyota dealership. They said it could be a computer problem, battery, alternator, etc. , and they'd run diagnostics on it. After being there over four hours, all they said was that the battery was "marginal" but it took a charge. I asked about putting in a new battery and the service rep said he didn't want to do that. I wasn't charged for the diagnostic or battery charge. I believe, now that I've heard about the stall issue today in the news, that this problem is why I wasn't charged for the diagnostic test; however, I was not informed there have been problems with stalling. This car stall problem happened on Friday, March 12, 2010.

#29 - Car Stall problem of the 2007 Toyota Corolla
On August 11, 2010, while driving our 2007 Toyota Corolla at about 40 mph the engine suddenly stopped running. We coasted and were able to get pulled off the road safely. The engine would not restart. We called our Toyota dealer service department and explained what was going on. They said there was a problem with the computer in the 2007 Corollas and that was probably what we were experiencing. We were instructed to have the car towed to the dealer and if that was the case, I. E. , computer failure, the tow charge and the repair would be covered under the vehicle warranty, they would hold a service spot open for us that very day and it would be taken care of when we arrived. They quoted a repair time of about 1 hour. We had the car towed to the dealer. It was a computer failure. The repair was completed in about the stated time. If this had happened on the highway in a construction zone where both sides of the road are lined with concrete abutments and there is no place to pull off our outcome may have been very different. It is frightening to think what could have happened to us with a stalled car in a highway construction zone with no way to get out of the flow of traffic. I think the fact that the car can just stop running while being driven has been underplayed. It was 08/11/2010 when this car stall issue happened.
