How Many Miles Does a Toyota Corolla Last?

With regular maintenance, a Toyota Corolla can reasonably last over 300,000 miles or 15-20 years.

Highway driving is easier on the engine than stop-and-go traffic.
Following the maintenance schedule for oil changes, tune-ups, etc.
Avoiding accidents, negligence, and excessive wear.
Using quality fluids, parts, and accessories.
Storing in a garage reduces environmental exposure.
Newer models benefit from manufacturing advances.
