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.

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!.

When I stopped at a stop sign, it stalled and has done so on several more occasions since. I also had a problem on the freeway when I was going about 65 mph and it pulled back like it was going to stop but then finally went back up to speed. I just bought the car on 8/31/11 from a car dealer. I went on the Toyota owners website to register the next day and noticed that the previous owner had a stalling problem as well and had it looked at and nothing was found.

My 2004 Toyota Corolla suddenly had engine problems while driving, making a horrible metallic clanking as the car stalled. After having it towed to the nearest repair facility, the diagnosis was that pieces of the engine literally broke apart as if the metal was fatigued. The mechanic could not explain how this happened with only 117,000 miles on the car. It took over a month to find a used engine and scrape together the money needed for repairs. The entire engine was replaced, for a total of $2500. I was also forced to rent a car during this time, and the car rental amount is around $600.

I have a 2006 Corolla sport with 52,000 miles on it. Yesterday in my way home it stalled in the middle of the traffic. The car was towed to the nearest dealership. The service manager called me today stating that the computer or ecm had to be replaced. According to NHTSA action number : pe09054 NHTSA recall campaign number : n/a make / models : model/build years: Toyota / Corolla 2006 Toyota / Corolla matrix 2006 wondering how many owners of this type of vehicle had same problems, yet Toyota has not issue a recall to fix these issues. Serious accidents could happen if these issues are not addressed in timely manner.

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.

Bought a used Toyota Corolla in texas at a Toyota dealer, on the way home to NY, after a few hundred miles, it died on the interstate and myself and my son spent the night in it, like the key was turned off. Loaded on a roll-back, and taken to a Toyota dealer, they said that they didn't know why, but they reprogrammed the computer. Now, $60 dollars poorer, down the road I go, another couple hundred miles, again it dies on the interstate, spent another night in it, onto another roll-back to another Toyota dealer. These folks tell me that I have bad computer sensors in the throttle body, they install a new one, charge me $1,300 dollars, and off I go, until a hundred miles down the road, it quits again on the interstate, this time on a dangerous spot on a blind curve. A police officer provided protection from on coming traffic until the tow arrived. Another rollback ride to the Toyota dealer. They do something more to it, down the road I go, finally making it home. Now I know that its not just my car. I think the Toyota company should have repaired the computer sensors in the throttle body at no charge. All three times that the Corolla quit, we were in a heavy traffic situation in the middle lane of a multi-lane interstate, and moving at the speed limit. We were extremely lucky that no one was hurt.

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.

My 2005 Toyota Corolla ce has been randomly stalling on me when I turn, when im at red lights, when im accelerating and when im slowing down with no rhyme or reason. It just started one day and continues to do at random times and with random frequency. I do not feel safe when this happens and there is no way to determine when my gas pedal will quit working, no noise to let me know it is about to or has happened, no overheating of the engine, no spikes in the rpms or anything, it just does it. I was almost in an accident the other night at 11pm when I was at a red light and went to accelerate and there was no response, the person behind me almost rear-ended me because of this. I was able to take it to a mechanic who said the computer was reading it was a fuel actuator issue. They advised me to contact Toyota since that is the same failure that is being recalled on all the other vehicles. I have made several attempts to contact Toyota which haven't resolved anything yet, so my car is still stalling and nothing has been done to resolve it as of yet.

2007 Toyota Corolla stalled on the evening of 15 Apr 2010. The next morning we had the car towed to our Toyota dealer (where the vehicle was purchased). When I called the service advisor to tell him the vehicle was on the way and described what happened, he immediately stated the "OH, it's the computer" as if this was a fairly common occurrence. The repair was made at no charge but we were fortunate that it happened in front of our house and I was able to park the car on the street. There have been no more occurrences.

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 complaint is concerning my 2005 Toyota Corolla on the 11th of March 2010 while driving down the highway at approximately 60 miles an hour I went to accelerate to change lanes. As I pressed on the accelerator my car did not respond, and began to slow down. I turned the wheel to pull over to the shoulder and realized that I did not have power steering, thus confirming the overall stall. I managed to get to the shoulder and after about a minute I tried to turn the key and the car came back on. I was able to drive to don davis certified Toyota parts and repair. After running a three hour diagnostic was reported to me that "nothing was wrong" with the car. The computer showed no signs of any type of glitch or malfunction. I returned home, only to find a report several days later about Corollas suddenly stalling.

There was no warning. Drive car 400 miles per week. One day I drove car to commuter parking lot with no problem, that evening it started fine then stalled when I put it in gear. Took a while to start the 2nd time and stalled again. This happened 4 times then I had it towed to dealer. Dealer said the engine computer needed to be replaced with no real explanation. I even asked to speak to the mechanic who could not provide an explanation other than it happens. Computer was replaced and the car runs fine. They said it was only warrantied for 1 year. As I was away from home I had to rent a car for 2 days while they made the repairs.
