    Just for a comparison, the 2003-2008 Corolla had 90 cu. ft. and the 1998-2002 Corolla had 88 cu. ft. That’s small! Unless there’s an...

  3. alanclarkeau liked Elektroingenieur's post in the thread Scary! Parked car shifted into drive by itself.

    Why would the condition of the 12-volt battery be relevant? If the car was in READY, wouldn’t 12-volt power for the electronic shift...

    Funny enough, #3 (your 99.999% impossible) is actually correct. This is the 0.001% time. Models without the spare tire (and are 2WD)...
