2003 Corolla 2.0 D4D

Recommended Posts

Considering a 2003 Corolla 2.0 D4D.

I've heard that this engine was the same diesel as was used in the MK2 Avensis of the time. However, the Avensis D4D  engine has a bad reputation for headgasket problems (sorted out in later cars).

Is it the same engine withe the same problems? Is the Corolla version reliable?

As far as I'm aware the Corolla used the 1CD-FTV diesel. The AD series diesel was introduced in the Avensis from 2005 some of which did have head gasket/oil consumption issues.

Cheers - just another question, do they have a DMF clutch?

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
