Most reliable vehicle I have ever owned.
As the original owner of this 2004 Corolla S and being responsible for 99% of the over 214,000 miles on this car, I am very familiar with its characteristics. Having owned several vehicles over many years now, I also know what can be expected over time. What wasn't expected was the amount of miles I've gone with virtually no problems. By that I mean I've replaced brakes, batteries, the catalytic converter and shocks, and did all the work myself. I am no master mechanic, but I fully believe these are the things you expect to replace over the years. What I haven't had to worry about has been breakdowns and major repairs. This includes during my cross country trip last year and the one I am going on this year. I have no fears regarding the dependability of this vehicle. I am not a car guy per se, to me they are transportation, but I love this vehicle as if it were a trusted family member. Should I need another vehicle, it will be a Toyota (even family members die someday).
