Most reliable car I have ever owned
By brymil2 on
2005 Toyota Corolla S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
I have owned a lot of vehicles and have put a ton of miles on them.
However, my 2005 Corolla has been by far the most reliable among all of them.
I bought it brand new in late 2004 and performed all the required maintenance myself.
What stands out about this car is that I drove it 178k miles before ANY repair was needed.
Very few cars have performed that well.
It ended up being the intake manifold gasket which what I hear from others, it one of the few things that go wrong with this car.
I have averaged 35 mpg in 65% highway driving.
I handed it down to my son but still drive it on occasion.
Still going strong with 182k miles.
Toyota has come close to perfecting this vehicle!
Reliability and fuel economy.
Being a small car, tires, brakes, suspension, struts, all last a long time!
