    Cool. I had to do with buying a 03 Honda Odyssey. Finances did not allow for the trusty Toyota Corolla. Next time.

    My tips - you may know these...

    Check air filter. Mine was filthy. Check that the wheel lock nut socket/bit is present (if relevant). Check that the jack alone is suitable. Mine worked fine. But needed a 40 mm thick wood block for better stability and height. Plus needed a breaker bar +19 mm socket (to hold lock nut socket) to crack the lugs. Were tight as. My spare (space saver) needed pumping up too.

    Yes, I have an '08 Corolla. Great little bus. Mine is a GLX Auto with mags, cruise and a spoiler. Since SWMBO retired and stopped using each day to go to work, it is doing 6.9l/100K.

    Good to hear ken about milage. No cruise or alloys on mine. An auto was out of the question for where we live unless it was a bigger motor

    Hah,
    I know your age Cic. A little older than me. Probably suffering arthritis as well. I couldn't even get into an Aston Martin, let alone getting out of one of those low machines. Wistful dreaming I think?
