Corolla 1.8 hybrid 2019 50000 miles


Recommended Posts

Hi, wondering if i could get some help with what to look out for with a 2019 Corolla 1.8 hybrid with around 50000 miles, I'm thinking of getting one on pcp finance, just wondering what to look out for, and when things like the timing chain etc will need replacing.

 

Thanks

With regular and on time oil changes, the timing belt shouldn't need replacing.

Service intervals are 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever occurs first, and there are Intermediate services alternating with Full services (eg Intermediate at 10,000, 30,000, 50,000, etc, and Full at 20,000, 40,000, 60,000, etc). So a 2019 car with 50,000 should have had five services based on the mileage basis - if on 50,000 now it should have had the 5th service already or be due the 5th.

They've been pretty reliable so far, can't think of any common issues that have popped up for them.

As frosty says, the timing chain should last the life of the engine as long as it's had and continues to get regular quality oil changes.

I'd say the service history is the first thing to check - Make sure none have been missed or late, and remember it's by time (a year) AND mileage (10k miles).

Other than that just the usual things to check on a 2nd hand car, e.g. tyres are okay, no damage, all panels straight, look for any rust, check engine sounds okay and isn't smoking etc.

All above as described plus a good look around the engine for any oil or coolant leaks and coolant level in the reservoir. Just to be on the safe side. Also rear hatch door hinges for rust and condition of the tyres especially if the car comes with 18” wheels. 50000 miles are not that much for this car if had been well looked after. Hybrid Battery cooling fan has a filter somewhere around rear seat, this needs to check clean or replace. That’s pretty much all.

And try to buy it from an official Toyota Dealer.

All above is sound advice. Main thing is oil changes at 10k miles or once per year whichever is first. Apart from that the car will be fine. It's a Toyota. Change the oil and it will last longer than you will.
