new acquisition of a 2001 corolla
last week I purchased a 2001 Toyota Corolla, I believe it is an S trim package. It has an S on the trunk, Corolla S floor mats, a leather wrapped 3 spoke steering wheel and cruise control, it is an automatic transmission. But it has steel wheels and hub caps, and it does not have fog lights.That is confusing to me as I thought that the S model came with alloy rims and fog lights.
It has 44K miles and I paid $2750 for it, it has some scratches and a couple dings on the exterior of the car. All in all I think i got a good deal on a car with a great reputation for being reliable.
It seems to run and drive great. And I want it to stay that way, I know its a 19 year old car, so my questions are.
What would you recommend I do to freshen it up?
Should I replace the spark plugs?
It seems to have had a recent oil change, there is a sticker on the windshield saying next oil change at 47k miles
Should I drain and fill the engine coolant? Which type of coolant do you recommend?
Should I drain and fill the transmission fluid? Again, which type of Transmission fluid do you recommend?
Should I drain and replace the brake fluid? Recommendations?
So far the only thing I found wrong with the car besides the exterior appearance is a bad tail light (which I replaced immediately).
What would you do to such an old vehicle to ensure it is in tip top operating condition? This will be my daily commuter.
