I recently bought a 2011 Toyota Corolla with 37,000 miles on it, it's Toyota certified. I drive about 2000 miles per month (probably more). When I'm done with college, I'm hoping to move closer to work at reduce my overall commute by 50% or more, but right now I'm stuck at 2000ish miles a month (lots of alone car time).
How do I make my car last longer? My last car was a Ford Ranger 1999, it had lots of problems, engine troubles, axle troubles, I poured about $6000 into it over 4 years. I want to avoid this as much as possible.
How can I make my car last a long time? Target goal: 250,000 miles.
I know about:
1. Regular Scheduled Maintenance
2. Oil Changes
3. Take it easy (What does that mean?)
Other then that, how do I ensure that my car will last?
