So, has anyone found out why the chassis code for the 12th gen Corolla is particularly different from past generations? The previous Corolla codes start with the engine series followed by the E (Corolla chassis) and then the iteration/generation number. For instance, the 11th gen sedan's chassis code is ZRE172 which follows this order. However, the 12th gen hatchback is MZEA12 where the MZ doesn't correlate with the M20A engine (actually, it might if there's an internal name for the new engine) and the A12 is different as well. I don't think it being on the TNGA platform has to do with it since the CHR has a pretty normal chassis code (ZGX10).

I'm new to this forum, and I was wondering how I can stop receiving email notifications on threads. I found where I can choose for no notification on a per thread basis but I want a forum wide option to opt out of email notifications. Is there one or does everyone just use junk emails?

Does TMMK not pay you enough for you to have to drive? I think if you were driving a Toyota company lease vehicle, it would be strictly prohibited...

Well, I just like to drive. And instead of wasting gas driving pointlessly, I figured I'd see if I could make some money doing it in my free time.

I did it for about 2 months, did the math, and realized that at the rate I was going, and making money, I'd end up at a loss for the year. With fuel cost, oil changes, and that sort of thing. So I cut my losses a while ago.

TMMK pays me well enough that I have my own home (purchased not rented), my corolla, my miata, and all my bills paid with the help of nobody. But the money I made doing lyft for a few months helped acquire the miata :D Being single and working nights means you don't get much of a normal social life. So driving for lyft gave me a chance to enjoy my car, have some casual conversation with all sorts of different people, and make a little side money.

Oh this bugged the shit out of me at first too. Somewhere in the control panel, there's a option that enables "auto subscribe to post". It's kinda hidden in a bunch of other forum options, but I think it's a pull down menu. Change that setting once you find it.

Does anyone know how to remove the middle rear seatbelt? I un clicked it from the bottom but the upper part just dangles from the seat. I hope there is a place to put the seat belt or does it just hang and dangle around from the top of the seat?

Being a car dealership lot attendant, I can drive different new cars and sometimes can really break in the engine (run rpm frequently to red line) for a long trip (between 100 and 300 miles round trip). The second benefit is can always detail my car to look shiny. But as I like to drive, this job is perfect for me.

I have a question why the 2020 Corolla Sedan is not optioned with fog lights in any model.

Likely because of the bumper design.

Just bought this bad girl and I want to treat her right. Any recommendations for tints? Also, anyone have experience buying OEM accessories for cheap and installing yourself? I want to install crossbars (planning to put cargo/road bike), rear window spoiler(for the 5+ HP gain, jk), and mudguards. Seems easy, but wanted to get some insight. Thank you!

Night shade edition is on the Toyota site.

Been looking through the exterior and no mention of body kit similar to Camry or Avalon.

Exterior treatments

Blacked out grille and shark fin antenna. The nightshade treatment will go to black side wire mirrors and door handles, and blacked out trim on the trunk lid.

Braking and wheels

Black painted wheels and larger rotors. 10.8" in the front and 10.2" in the rear.

Performance

Only comes in 2.0l and cvt. Manual trans not an option now, maybe later?

No other packages listed.

Hi all, newbie here. I have just purchased a Corolla ZR Hybrid hatch in pearl with black roof, here in Australia. Hope you dont mind me joining your forum?
I don't yet know when I get to pick up the Corolla, waiting to hear back from the dealer ?

I'm looking forward most to the cruise control and lane-keeping that basically drives itself. Plus the economy and heads up display.

Have been a Toyota fan for a while. My grandma had a 1985 Corolla. I think it was rear wheel drive but it was sold before I knew much more about it. I've had 2 x Hilux Surf (Japanese spec 4Runner) and still own a 1994 Hilux Surf (I imported a set of American Racing wheels from USA about 10 years ago for it). Had a mint condition 1988 Toyota Supra aero top (Japanese import) for a while when I first came to Australia. And after making a mistake of getting a new Audi from a dealer I am looking forward to handing that back in a week and waving bye-bye to crappy mechanical problems and crappy service :)
