Car won't accelerate!

Asked by Nov 18, 2016 at 09:27 PM about the 2012 Toyota Corolla LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 Toyota Corolla and it will not
accelerate. The car idles in drive and
reverse, but I get no acceleration at all! My
check engine light and trac off lights are
both on. Is there anyone that can help?

I had the exact same problem on my brand new 2016 Corolla with only 1000 miles. It's at the dealer now being serviced. So far they have replaced the rotation sensor and a computer part. They called me day before yesterday and said the car was fixed but the same exact problem recurred as soon as I left the dealer so it's back being serviced some more. It's getting close to "lemon" status. Did your problem get resolved? If so, what was the issue?
