Is the 2005 Corolla one of those great ones? I o nra one new . Loved it . It had 180k. The only reason I don’t own it anymore is because it was salvaged in a minor accident. Anyway are those a keeper anyone? I didn’t have it long enough to know. I want to buy a used Corolla and I’m thinking of going with the 2005 since i owned one for about 6 years.Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

@Joshua M who said that? They've got to be retarded,not changing the fluid especially if it's over used (past the mileages that it was supposed to be changed at) is what will destroy a transmission and a engine my dad had a 1995 Toyota 110 with 520k miles on it,original engine and trans,changed the oil,a and trans fluid every 6k miles nothing happened (the only thing that broke and needs replacing was the original odometer)... He still has it but,he recently bought a new 2017 Toyota corolla...

@미스타윤 yes I've heard that I've used 10w40 from day one. No consumption yetI think it would have started by now. But I honestly think it's because people don't change it often enough I do it every 5000 miles (8000km)
미스타윤 17 hours ago
the reason for me using 5w-30 over 10w-40 is, it pass through piston oil return hole better, toyotas have small piston return holes, when they fail to pass through, they start to burn oil and those burnt oil is so hard that all the advertising bullshit won help at all, its finished

Thank you for exposing the 2009 Toyota Corolla, I have one and my mechanic discovered that it has a factory defect with the piston rings which causes the engine to burn oil. Toyota knows about it, but refuses to recall the 1.8 L engines and has only recalled the 2.4 L engines. Not only the 2009 has engine issues, I have read complains from Toyota Corolla owners of 1.8 L and 2.4 L engines from 2009-2016 Toyota Corollas. Shame on you Toyota for not being honest and for selling cars with defective engines and now you are refusing to recall all those Corollas that have the piston rings defect. I will never buy another Toyota vehicle, I will go with Honda from now on.

This is so cool. You used my odometer pic!!! That car is at 465,000 now, original tranny, still running but has electrical issues. My friend has it now. Honestly, that car was a stinking blessing and i drove it hard, too!! The electrical issues belong to her now. I have my 2005 and am up to 245,000 and i just bought a 2013 black beauty, a Civic too. The 2005 is getting the timing belt changed as we speak (it did NOT go on me) and the only thing i replaced on that were valve cover gaskets, 2 O2 sensors and a control arm. ...245,000 and running excellent! Soon as i hit 300,000 i will hit you up!

In 1996 bought a 92 Mitsubishi Expo LRV with 60,000 miles. Best car I've ever had! Sold it last year with over 440,000 miles on it ONLY because my lovely daughter gave me a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid. There are many times I wish I had it back. The Expo is so versatile, raised a family of four in it. It could hold so much. Everything from a small sailboat on the roof rack, to camping gear, to a PW motorcycle inside it.

Thanks for a great summary. One minor correction - the 12 volt auxiliary battery in a Prius does not start the car. The car is started by the traction (hybrid) battery. The auxiliary battery provides power to sensitive computer systems, headlights, audio, and other accessories. Absolutely spot-on regarding reliability. There are actually several Priuses out there over 600-700k. I suspect there are probably even a few over a million miles by now.

Agreed. I see people buying these old fire truck engines with only 15,000 miles on them or whatever. But they never stop to think how many zillions of hours that thing spent idling during fire calls.

Have an '07 Mazda 3 with 319,000 miles on it. Mostly highway miles: first set of replacement brakes after 200,000 miles, first clutch rebuild after 300,000. No major problems to date. It's given me no reason to even begin looking for another car, yet. And I can still enjoy the cassette and CD players!

I have a 2001 Toyota Echo that has 344,000 miles on it. It runs perfect and gets 41 mpg. I recently put $2200 in repairs to put it back in great driving condition. All parts replaced were original equipment. Brakes, rotors, shocks, tires, radiator, starter, wheel bearings, alternator, tune up, and throttle body. This car has been a trouble free joy. I am sorry I don't have pictures. I am old and don't have a cell phone. The gas engine in the Prius is the same one that was in the Echo.

The block is more or less the same but the rest of the engine is quite different since the Prius version uses an Atkinson cycle.

I'm surprised and actually impressed at the Prius's reliability as shown here. Especially as it was really the first heavy hitter in the hybrid automobile space. I think Honda beat them to market but i can't remember the last time I saw one of those but Prius are everywhere. Honestly i'm a muscle car guy so a Prius isn't exactly a car that's a heavy consideration for me but if I ever needed a long distance commute vehicle i see that i'd be justified in picking one up. I'm also glad to see the Ford Focus on the list. Ever since the first generation ive always liked the styling of that little car. Especially the 2 door hatchback (ZX3).

If you are trying to do a video just on cheap long-lasting cars, that's fine but then you should have picked a different title. This is not really a fair video on the best five small cars based on longevity. As it is, you are biasing your study by only looking at vehicles under $6k in counting how many are listed and what their mileage is. A truly long-lasting small car will command a higher resale value than its competitors, meaning that there will be still more of these car models with above 200k miles over the $6k price threshold than comparable brands. The Corolla is a good example of this, but you are downgrading it in terms of its reliablity simply because it generally holds its value longer and therefore often has a slightly higher price than similar models. On the other hand, you seem to be rewarding the Focus for almost the exact opposite reason, including newer models with high mileage because their resale value has dropped under the $6k mark. If you were to remove the arbitrary price cap and then redo this study with an age restriction instead, for instance just looking at cars ten years or older, I believe you would see a different result.

What about a 2009 Hyundai Elantra with 164K miles? I just bought one about a month ago for $4,050 from a new car dealership (Honda). They said they don’t generally put trade-ins up for sale unless they feel it’s a good car. It was a one owner car, all maintenance records in glove compartment. No accidents. Looks like new. New tires. Clean engine. Was that a good deal? Can I expect it to last for 10 more years? I did replace the timing belt, since I’ve had it, as recommended by my mechanic, and I used the money I had leftover from being under my budget when I bought the car.
Nodak81 3 days ago
That's kind of high miles. A lot of it just comes down to maintenance and luck. Good job on doing the timing belt though, most people never do it and then act shocked when the engine blows up on the highway.

(Audi owner alert) - the German cars tend to be like thoroughbred horses, need a lot of veterinary support. Older German cars need enthusiast owners prepared to do the set maintenance and be acutely aware and on top of known issues/model. Given that then you can get good mileages. E.g., the Benz S320 v-6 from early to mid 2000's can pull the big mileages ok. Etc., etc.

Arnie Boggs. One more important tip. Change the transmission at 15,000 miles. Not the usual manufactured scheduled - 25.000 or 30,000. Changed the tranny oil with a quality brand lubricatong oil. Adding to that same tranny oil. A great transmission additive like " lubegard ". It goes for about $19.00 a bottle. Btw am not beeing payed for speaking on behalf of lubegard.

Arnie Boggs. I thank you. Yes! That keeping of rpm's down. Is the best way of having a reliable 4 cylinders. To keep on going. That and the regular changing to a quality oil and quality oil filter. I would even suggest. To changing the oil 300 miles ahead of the next scheduled 3,000 mile oil change. If you do it. You are going to have a 400, 000 to even a 600,000 miles 4 cylinder. For an average of 15 to maybe even up to 20 year life span with that same 4 cylinder. 100% lubrication on the moving parts is key!!!

Arnie Boggs 🧢 tipped to you sir on the longevity of your Hyundai. If you hit the half a million mile mark and you’d like to sell it I would be interested. I have a sick obsession with cars that just won’t die. I just purchased a 2013 Tucson limited with 64k miles. I drive around 35k highway miles a year and I seldom hit 2000 rpm. I’d like to hit the 500k mark. Do you have any suggestions on how to make that happen besides the standard maintenance?
@Arnie Boggs good job keeping your car going
