TOYOTA COROLLA 2001

Corolla

Well into its 4th decade of production, the compact Toyota Corolla is the greatest-selling nameplate in automotive history. With valid reason: This is actually the essential economy vehicle. It's small, affordable, fuel-efficient and reliable. Put gas inside it, provide the periodic oil change and it'll provide reliable transportation well beyond the 100,000-mile mark. This is exactly why it's typical in excess of 200,000 People in america, from high schoolers to retired people, to purchase Corollas each year.

Summary:

WHEN THE HIGH-BEAMS ARE ACTIVATED, THEY SHINE A BEAM OF LIGHT VERTICALLY FROM BOTH LENSES. THE BEAMS FORMSAN "X" THAT CROSSES DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE DRIVERS FIELD OF VISION- IT IS SO PRONOUNCED THAT IT LIGHTS UP TREES ABOVE THE CAR. I CONTACTED TOYOTA SERVICE AND ASKED IF IT WAS A LENS PROBLEM WITH MY VEHICLE- THEY SAID THEY HAVE RECEIVED COMPLAINTS BEFORE BUT HAVE NO PLANS TO REDESIGN HEADLIGHT LENSES. THIS SITUATION IS A DISTRACTION TO THE DRIVER, AND AFFECTS VISABILITY - ESPECIALLY IN RAIN OR HAZE WHEN LIGHT BEAM BOUNCES OFF AND OBSCURES FORWARD VISION.

Summary:

I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED A PROBLEM INSTALLING AND PROPERLY SECURING CAR SEATS IN AUTOMOBILES. HOWEVER, SINCE I PURCHASED THIS CAR, THE DEALERSHIP, MYSELF NOR MY FAMILY MEMBERS ARE ABLE TO GET A CAR SEAT INSTALLED IN THE VEHICLE PROPERLY AFTER FOLLOWING THE INSTALLATION DIRECTIONS OF BOTH THE CAR SEAT AND THE VEHICLE. ANY OF THE SEAT BELTS WILL NOT SECURE A CAR SEAT. WE EVEN BOUGHT A NEW CAR SEAT TO SEE IF THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. ONCE THE SEAT BELT IS AS TIGHT AS IT COULD POSSIBLY EVER BE, YOU CAN STILL LIFT THE CAR SEAT OFF OF THE SEAT BY ABOUT 12 INCHES AND THE CAR SEAT DOES NOT FEEL AS THOUGH IT IS EVEN HOOKED INTO THE SEAT BELT. I STOPPED BY THE DEALER WHERE I PURCHASED THE AUTOMOBILE ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO, AND THEY COULDN'T GET THE CAR SEAT SECURED EITHER. IF THE CAR SEAT CAN'T BE SECURED PROPERLY, HOW IS IT THAT A PERSON IS SAFE WITH THE SEAT BELT? IS THIS A PROBLEM WITH THE NEW COROLLA'S? MY DAUGHTER HAS A 1995 TOYOTA COROLLA AND THE CAR SEATS IN HER VEHICLE CAN'T BE BUDGED! IS THIS A DEFECT WITH MY CAR ONLY? I FEEL THAT THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS SITUATION. HOW DO I KNOW THAT MY FAMILY IS SAFE IN THIS CAR AND THAT THE SAFETY RESTRAINTS ARE WORKING CORRECTLY? PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS MATTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I AM CONCERNED FOR MY FAMILY AND MY OWN SAFETY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. *AK
