This is a guide to everything 9th gen Corolla(+variants). I will be sharing all of the cheat codes that I have learned on this platform and chassis in one place.
Topics that we will cover will include anything that involves this chassis from maintenance, advice, skill share, paint, performance, handling, and most importantly my major.. continuous improvement.
Something I think is important to share before we begin the list. Some people will arrive to this post and immediately dislike the content I have. Some will discover new things and enjoy some parts of this post. But in the end, everyone is on a scale numerically, from 0-10. 0 being uninterested and 10 being very interested. So, when you are viewing this content, keep in mind that we all are going to have different aspirations on this idea of “scale”. You could be someone who enjoys OEM ideas, parts, schedules, intervals, practice. This will NOT be that OE post.
What is my background and what is the perception?
1yr AutoTech studies. My car aspirations stem from hate, lack thereof improvement, and value. Toyota dealer service crashed my car into their lift, yes, I won’t name names tho. After several years of maintaining 05 Corolla LE Auto, I found a lack of technicians ability to improve my car. So I began making real impactful changes to improve this chassis. Lastly, owning a vehicle involves value. I focused on physical/monetary value and value over time. What does that mean? Means I am cautious of how i spend money on a vehicle over years/decades rather than lose in short term.
