Toyota Corolla Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Toyota Corolla reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Toyota Corollas with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Toyota Corollas that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Toyota Corolla lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Toyota Corolla has been recently.

To see how frequently Toyota Corolla problems occur, check out our car reliability stats.

The nice thing about getting a Toyota as a rental is I feel pretty confident it won't have problems. In fact, there were no odd little quirks or oddities that I'm used to seeing due to the way rental cars are often treated.

Maybe Corolla is not a value car, but it would make anyone seen better than any other compact car, only Honda Civic can compete with it.

This is not my first Toyota - the reputation lives on and with reasonable maintenance I have not had any problems that have not been handled by Toyota to my complete satisfaction.

Toyota in General... the unintended acceleration issue.

They are falling in QC. Honda and Subaru both are rated as more reliable. Ask a late model Camry owner about their transmission woes.
