Could I expect a 2024 toyota corolla to last me 40 years? Assuming I take care of it and don't live in a rust area?

Could I expect a 2024 toyota corolla to last me 40 years? Assuming I take care of it and don't live in a rust area? Or is this level of toyota dependability a thing of the past?

    You should never expect any modern car to last more than 15 years at best.
    But how long any vehicle "lasts" is up to the tenacity of the owner. I mean if you change the battery and the CVT at least once and spend a few grand for electrical gremlins then yeah, it might absolutely last 40 years.

      I don't drive a ton. And its not too shocking to imagine a 1984 toyota still on the road, yea? Do they make them better or worse now?

    Probably not given all the electronics packed into it. The hybrid one at least should be able to comfortably make at least 20 since it’s using components that have been well proven in other Toyota hybrids.

    The interior will probably be clapped and miserable well before then, since Toyota cheaped out heavily on their interiors’ quality starting around 2010, and I doubt they improved things since then for cost cutting reasons.

      Why would electronics not last?
      Unless you expose them to water or some other shit, electronics can last practically forever

        Heat cycle stress on solder points - yes, it's rated for wild temperature swings. No, not for decades on end

    Yes, parts availiblity is practically unlimited, the engine bay is relatively roomy, and the electrical/electronics stuff is independent of the power train. If the world ended tomorrow, these are the cars that you're going to be able to keep running for decades after.

    it can easily last 15-20 years. From experience do not run the AC to high for too long as it will cause an issue with the engine coolant bypass that was also in the RAV4. dealers will try to charge you 800 but the part is 120-170 and you can do it yourself.

    Why go for a Corolla when you could get Camry for just a bit more?

    Keeping my Corolla 30 years as well, two years into it so far. I do admit I don't really know how to protect the cheap ass interior

    Lmao, absolutely not. I hate to sound like a boomer but they don't build them like they used to. Toyota isn't anything special anymore, they'll last 4-5 years longer than the competition. You should expect initial replacements to come around in the first 5 years, things to start breaking and needing actual repairs by 8-10 years, and completely shitting the bed by 12-14 years.

      There are 2018 Corolla's with 200,000km on the clock already and their are mechanic vouching their build quality is still far ahead of Korean cars. Stop coping.

        200k kms (which is not a lot) over 6 years and 200k km's over 15+ years are extremely different things. Time always does more wear than distance.

    The drivetrain? Sure. The interior (at the very least the drivers bottom cushion) and every single electrical doodad? Probably not.

    Absolutely. Cars are better built now than they ever have been. People cope about it but that's the reality coming from a guy who dds a 35yo diesel truck so I'm not biased.
