#3992 of 4027 2000 Toyota Corolla LE
Nov 29, 2011 (3:01 am)
my car has developed problems with rear stop lights. Rear stop lights will not turn off when I switch off ignition. Auto parts store informs me that a switch located on brake pedal needs to be replaced. The switch costs $34.99. I was also informed that the problem could be rectified by purchasing a rubber grommet that attaches to the existing defective switch Please help. I just purchased car only four days ago for $5000. Thank You

What exactly is it that you need help with? I would just get my head down under the brake pedal and determine which of these two fixes is necessary. After this determination go to a dealer and pick-up the correct repair part. Replacing should be straight forward, just remove and replace the grommet or switch as needed.

Thank you TercelTom. My problem is I cannot see the complete switch when I get under the brake pedal and have no idea on how to remove it other than by feeling around. I do notice that there is a panel underneath the steering wheel that seems to be secured by only one bolt or screw. Do you know if this panel is removable?. If so, it seems like I would have a much better view of the switchAgain, thank you for your interest

Does anyone have an idea, a clue maybe, as to why Toyota does not develop a hybrid system for its Corolla?
I know some of you will say Toyota has the Prius line for anyone interested in owning Hybrid tech, but if the automaker can provide Hybrid tech for the Camry then why not for the Corolla too?
It's about time some automaker offered a SMALL vehicle, Yaris sized, with Hybrid. The Honda Civic Hybrid, or regular high mileage HF, are great...but I find Honda's warranty lacking...that's a deal breaker, speaking for myself.
Any 4-1-1 appreciated...

A corolla hybrid would cost just about as much as a Prius, but would have quite a bit less interior space and would lack the advantage of a hatch.
I don't see much point and I suppose Toyota doesn't either.
Not trying to be flippant. I also have a niche I would like to see filled, but I know it never will be. A Prius that handles better and has a stick shift. I won't hold my breath.
They are coming out with a smaller Prius soon though.

Agree re: the stick Prius.
aladdinsane : The comment about the Honda Hybrid - if you want the best fuel economy, I am not sure why you would by the Honda?

I dig the hybrid's Flash Gordon two tier infotainment cluster, plus the Civic's reliability/dependability reputation is nothing to sneeze at (so to speak). I realize there are other brands with better stats and even a better driving experience. The Civic is just one of a small list I have of machines to check out. I'd like a hybrid, but there aren't many small hybrids out there to check out for purchase. The Civic's size is just about right, speaking for myself.
#3999 of 4027 Corolla Ranking for Dependability JD Powers

JD Power Dependability Study
This is the latest dependability study by JD Powers. It shows that for 2009 models (3 years old), Toyota got more awards (8) than any other maker. #1 Lexus (Toyota) #2 Porsche, #3 Cadillac And Toyota, #4 Scion (Toyota).
Also note - for compact cars, the Prius was #1, #2 COROLLA. That's pretty good, considering the 2009 was the first year of a new generation of Corolla.

I like what I see for the Corolla in this pic.
Any idea when this new version will be sold?
That sounds a forever away, especially since I'LL be in the market for new wheels soon.
I could wait for it, but it still sounds as if this new version is far off.
