2006 Toyota Corolla 4dr Sedan

126-horsepower 1.8L I4 4-speed automatic FWD

35000 mi An ongoing problem. They replaced all parts in the rear suspension that they possibly could. Lemon Law Complaint started. Toyota settled out of court for $2,000... This after spending Mucho $$$ to try to fix it. We are still driving the car. 
36000 mi The car is now history. It was traded in and is now someone else's problem. We received our check from Toyota and kissed it good bye. Never figured out what the cause of the problem was. 
19000 mi

US $201
At 19,700 miles rear wheels had alignment issues. Both rear wheels needed shims to correct the alignment. After a lot of efforts by myself the Toyota company agreed to pay for the parts (shims) and labor. I paid for alignment. No other problem so far.
