Gotcha.  And I agree.  Just have to know which ones are good and which ones aren't.

2007 car with 140K miles.  That is about 8K a year.  You want to keep it for another 300K miles?  That works out to over 37 years.  So you will buy another car in 2061?  

Aside from this math, think about it.  The car has 140K miles and you are concerned about cost of a cat that will go till it is a half million miles old?  In California?  

I mean, I don't think the rest of the car will go that long.  They have bore erosion issues that increase oil consumption, which also poisons converters.  200k is a good life for a modern Toyota engine.  The rest of the car seems okay.

Really? I thought Corollas if well cared for could last 400k?  We are 2nd owners. First owners mostly kept it in garage.  2061 sounds like science-fiction.
