Question about Toyota Corolla
Although the axle was found to be the cause, it is not an internal part of the transmission. By what you have described, it sounds as though the rubber boot had torn on the CV joint, causing axle failure. This is not uncommon on most vehicles, and are replaced at one time or another on a vehicle due to wear or damage. If one side had a boot failure, the other side will most likely fail as well at some point. With 73k on this vehicle and of course taking in consideration with maintenance and repair, I say keep the car and maintain the vehicle as best as you could with oil changes and other fluid change maintenance. The cost of a new car would cost far more money than keeping the 2005 you have right now. I do not see any reason why this vehicle would not provide you with at least 200,000 miles if maintained. Repairs will be needed in the future of course, but it is the same with any vehicle you purchase. It is a reliable vehicle.
