sorry to hear about the tercel - it had to get old eventually though. hope the newer corollas don't have the oil consumption issues all the older ones did...

Well, if it was, then there's no truer testament to the longevity of these old Toyotas... I've never checked the oil the entire time I had it, and I'm pretty sure my friend does the same!
