I have a 2000 Corolla with 97k miles. I find it hard to believe people are having problems with their 1998-2002 Corollas. I basically do no maintenance other than change the oil, do the brakes, and get new tires. I have never parked the car in a garage, this car has lived its life out in the streets of Boston through many a winter. I'm simply amazed at how this little car can take so much ...
I bought it with 30K as rental. Had to replace the clutch on 60K, blinker switch on 140K, sway link pins on 150K. That was all till 175K. It does burn oil. The most reliable car ever.
