Why Maintenance Matters

While performing an oil change or tire rotation may not seem like it has a tremendous impact on performance, taking care of your Corolla is the best way to keep it running strong for a decade and beyond. Your Toyota works hard for you, and daily wear and tear needs to be addressed on a regular basis. Failure to perform maintenance can lead to bigger, costly problems, so in order to achieve maximum Corolla reliability, you’ll need to stick to the recommended service intervals.

Basic Corolla Maintenance

There are many factors that can affect how often your Corolla needs service, including your driving style, local terrain, and Cartersville weather conditions, but in general, you’ll need to schedule service for the following areas:

  • Every 5,000 miles: Oil change and tire rotation
  • Every 15,000 miles: Inspect and fill coolant system, inspect brakes, steering, exhaust and more
  • Every 30,000 miles: Cabin and engine air filter change, check fuel system
  • Every 60,000 miles: Inspect and change transmission fluid, check all drive belts
  • Every 100,000 miles: Replace coolant and spark plugs

Mile After Mile

Toyota cars are known for their reliability, with Cedartown drivers holding onto their vehicles for years or even decades. This is due to superior craftsmanship and parts, built to last for up to 250,000 miles or more. Corolla reviews consistently call out the dependability and safety of this iconic car, with high resale value and satisfaction scores.
