Tell me about it! All 6 cylinders are within 10% of factory compression, oil consumption is very low, no leaks...I just don't have the heart to reward this hard working engine by ripping it out for no reason. The 4.3 4runner is SO much more powerful, though...blasted Jap engineers, doing their job right! How dare they!! Dodgy

I bought an '05 Corolla 12 years ago. It got about $6k of warranty work, but seems to be working well now. It just turned over 200k miles.

I'd be thinking about a new car before it hits 400,000, just to be safe. You don't want to end up on the side of the road. Cool

Picked up a 64 Fairlane Sports Coupe yesterday. All original, needs some work but it will make a nice cruiser.

Those are cool cars. Is it a 6- or an 8- cylinder?

I hate to say it but I’m going to anyway...

Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke. No

They're fun to build- we've done a lot of Fairlanes, Galaxies and Falcons, the old Fords are popular. They rarely seem to have significant rust, which is nice, and the engine bays- from the gargantuan Galaxies down to the relatively tiny Falcons- are big enough that you can put whatever power plant you want in them. Likewise the interiors...bare bones racing Ricaros or full-on overstuffed captain's chairs, lol. Great cars to build.!

I question the accuracy of a few of those, but I'd say the majority are on target. I'm curious how they established those numbers...many parts among makes owned by a parent company have one part number, so it's difficult to track what goes where. i.e. Honda/Acura, Toyota/Scion/Lexus, etc. Toyota even owns a pretty good chunk of Subaru, and there is some crossover there, too.
Still, it's not a bad ballpark idea. Smile
