Oil Change is a pain
By J Brown on

Vehicle

2009 Toyota Corolla 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Apparently two engine types. One with conventional oil filter...and mine. You have to remove a plastic housing that has a "cardboard-like" filter insert. An o-ring mus be changed and a new washer should be bought for the drain plug, at each oil change. A serious step back in engineering!!! Requires more time and mess. Filter inserts are more expensive than conventional filter. Glad I change my own oil. Would be afraid cheap oil service centers would not have proper filter and charge you for changing...without actually changing filter. Different topic: Paint extremely thin..hardly takes anything to scratch to metal. Gas mileage...lucky to get 30mpg with my automatic, disappointed!

Favorite Features

Overall looks.

Suggested Improvements

Go back to conventional oil filter!!! Better paint job! Gas mileage should be better.
