  1. Thank you! 😊 I'm having my brakes checked today... Hopefully it is just a rotor/pad replacement and not something else.
  2. After doing some more research on the topic of headrests, I found that they are an important part of the safety (I assume it's protection against whiplash). After reading that, I would not try to bend the metalbars. The owner's manual says that one should "Lock the head restraint in place with the center of the head restraint closest to the top of your ears". So I will check that when I get home, maybe I have mine too low and that's why they are pushing my head so much forward?
  3. Thank you all! I had no idea that the Corolla was different in the UK/US! Like Kenth I also find the headrest too forward angled, perhaps that is what's keeping me from being comfortable. I wonder if there is a way to replace it?
  4. Hello everyone, I just got my first Corolla and so far I'm very pleased with it. However, I've been having some trouble finding a comfortable and relaxed driving position for long drives. I'm 5'6", I have pushed the seat up as high as it goes, I have lowered the steering wheel and pulled it towards me as much as possible (I have short arms), and I have found a good position for the seat where I can comfortably reach the pedals. But I just can't find a relaxed position for the back! I bought a neck/shoulder support pillow, but I'm not sure if it was maybe too thick because now the rest of my back has less support. What do you use to make the seat more comfortable? Lumbar support pillows? Seat cushions? I know that this is very individual and everyone is different, but I'd love to hear some ideas!
  5. Check Kelly Blue Book, kbb.com, under "My car's value". It's a US site, so they show what you could expect on the market here. Not sure how that translates to the UK, but it could give you an idea of the price range at least.
  6. Hello everyone, I'm Anna and I just got my first Toyota, a 2015 Corolla LE. So far I'm mostly happy with it, it drives smoothly and handles the crappy patched up (or not patched up) roads here in New Jersey quite well. My only complaint is that it is slow to accelerate after a stop, but I can live with that. I'm hoping to do some DIY work on the car, it has a couple of scratches, paint chips and so on. Also thinking about installing new speakers but I have no idea if that is easy enough for a DIY project. I'm planning on driving this car all the way to California, and on such a long trip you really need some oompf in your sound system! 😎
