  1. And there goes my Corolla...

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Despite my view of this car, the number of times I lent it out, left it in airport parking lots, or on city streets overnight, the car is still in pretty decent condition (a couple instances of curb rash, some bumper scuffs, and 2 door dings). I'm finding myself liking the hatchback more than I...
  2. And there goes my Corolla...

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    The car was only in Uber use for a few months...the fact that my friend didn't need it for long is a good thing. He's found something with good pay, and semi-regular hours (it's IT work, so emergencies do happen). I've thought a lot about what I want to replace this car with, and there are...

    it's not out of the question, but I do remember learning on donated cars. The tax deduction wouldn't hurt. I actually like the way the hatchback looks. Though the hatch is joined by several other options.
  4. And there goes my Corolla...

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    After a couple years of service, it's time for my Corolla to move on. It served its purpose without much fanfare, or major issue. The car did everything well, but didn't really excel in any particular area (it started when needed, drove well, was comfortable, good on gas, didn't cost much for...
  5. The new TRD Camry is sporty!

    Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    According to Car and Driver - who have never been too kind on the Camry - the TRD package makes it a decent handling car. 2020 Toyota Camry TRD Changes the Camry's Game

    Not sure about this...like everyone else, that crowd is migrating towards SUVs, and Crossovers.

    Just wait to buy the parts off of one that's been wrecked because some yokel was out driving beyond their abilities...
  8. Custom seat covers for 2019 Hatch XSE?

    Corolla 12th Gen (Hatch 2019+/Sedan 2020+)
    Not sure how much you're willing to spend, but if you're willing, Katzkin would work well for a Corolla, and it's real leather. I've seen some, and aside from the small 'Katzkin' tag sewn in, they look as good as factory SofTex which is actually absolute sh*t.
  9. 2019 SE- Wheels stolen. What Now?

    Camry 8th Generation (2018+)
    Sorry to all of you who have had your wheels nicked, or had to deal with sub-par insurance service. I think I'd probably repair my Toyota, sell, eat the loss, and then buy a new one. For my Euro-sedans (both in the same dealer network), I've found a manufacturer-certified auto-repair shop (also...
  10. Neighbor Hit My Car While Parking

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    If that were to happen to my Corolla, I'd just leave it as is, but would go to the other person's insurance company, file a claim, and get a check for the damages to ensure that their rates go up. Maybe a bit petty, but I believe people need to be held responsible. I've had accidents where I...
  11. Holding up well under Uber duty

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    In the 7 months my friend has been using the car, he's done an extra oil change, and been watching the consumables (checking brakes, and fluids, etc). It's actually being cared for better than when I was the only one using it (aside from lending it out to friends, or family). I don't abuse the...
  12. Holding up well under Uber duty

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    Exactly why I'm not worried about...I've even seen some in taxi use around here.
  13. Holding up well under Uber duty

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    I figured this would be the easiest way to reply to all... I have taken the insurance, and liability issues into account. First off, I'm not in New York City, or State. The Corolla has a policy with Progressive, completely separate from my other two cars (actually, a different company all...
  14. Holding up well under Uber duty

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    I'm actually covered. The car is actually on a separate insurance policy for rideshare, with my buddy covered on the policy. I'm aware of the risks. As for the car being 'rented', we have no formal agreement written out, and I don't really push my friend for it. Thanks for the heads up though.
  15. Holding up well under Uber duty

    Corolla 11th Gen Sedan 2014-19, Scion iM 2016-18
    A buddy of mine fell on hard times, and needed to pick up side gigs (in addition to his regular job), so decided to start driving Uber. Since his car didn't qualify, I started letting him rent my Corolla for $25/week - I would have lent it for free, but he's insisted on renting. I still only...
