Every 5,000 Miles or 6 months
After getting your Toyota Corolla, your first inspection won’t occur until you’ve crossed the 5,000-mile marker. Since your vehicle is still relatively new, there won’t need to be a whole lot of work done, meaning you’ll be in and out of the service center quickly.
The following services listed below will be all your Corolla needs:
- Check installation of driver’s floor mats
- Inspect and adjust all fluid levels
- Inspect wiper blades
- Rotate tires
- Visually inspect brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs
Every 10,000 Miles or 12 Months
After 10,000 miles or roughly one year, you’ll want to bring your Corolla back into the shop for a few more quick inspections and replacements. Along with the services offered at 5,000 miles, you’ll also get your oil changed and the oil filter replaced.
Every 20,000 Miles or 24 Months
Once you’ve reached the 20,000-mile marker, your Toyota Corolla will again need the aforementioned services including an oil change and tire rotation. At this point, however, there will be additional inspections that must be done to ensure the long-term health of the car. These include:
- Inspect ball joints and dust covers
- Inspect drive shaft boots
- Inspect engine air filter
- Inspect steering linkage and boots
- Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis and body
Every 45,000 Miles or 54 Months
Things remain pretty standard until you surpass the 45,000-mile marker (roughly 54 months) after getting your Toyota Corolla. There won’t be any new replacements or upgrades, but there are numerous inspections that will take place. These inspections are designed to keep your Corolla in good shape so you can enjoy another 45,000 miles and more. The following parts will be involved in the inspection:
- Ball joints and dust covers
- Brake lines and hoses
- Cabin air filter
- Drive shaft boots
- Engine coolant
- Exhaust pipes and mountings
- Radiator and condenser
- Steering gear
- Steering linkage and boots
