    Default Advise need to check/repair 2005 Corolla XLI

    I am buying a 2005 COROLLA XLI black color, from one of my friends who has been running it from day one. The car has now crossed about 152,000kms and is in complete Original condition.

    CNG was installed in 2008

    No parts like CLUTCH PLATE, CYLINCER, RADIATOR, SHOCKS etc etc have NEVER been changed. I need the advise and guidance how to start with this car, as i will be using this car for my family and want to do all necessary things/changes so that it run trouble free for 2-3years.

    My friend has been using SHELL HELIX (yellow one) for last 4years. Please recommend Oil too

    The interior is very clean and would need only polishing/cleaningAdvise need to checkrepair 2005 Corolla XLI -1088751Advise need to checkrepair 2005 Corolla XLI -1088755

    The exterior has some wear and tear for a 9 year old car, but one of the sides has few dents/scratches and offcourse bumpers have some scratches as well. How to deal with this. PLease suggest.

    I think its 2004 as 2005 onwards the tail lights were changed and the yellow indicators were no more round shaped.
    Check the engine compression before buying.
    What is the price tag?
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    Get the exterior & inteior rthroughly polished & waxed after an interclean service. During the service they'll take everything except the dashboard out of the interior & wash & clean it. Change the timing belt, get the tires & brake pads & all engine parts throughlly checked. Get it's rings checked since it has done 152000 km milage
